Sustainable Development Approach

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT APPROACH

Developing countries to-day face the twin crises of environmental deterioration and maldevelopment more seriously than ever before. This is despite so many U.N. World conferences including Rio Summit on Environment and Development (1992) and the Copenhagen social Summit (1995).

Concern has been raised at these U.N. conferences by political leaders and vociforous citizen groups, showing that there is no lack of concern.

But the more powerful forces and institutions that represent the dmominant trend of globalization and liberalization overwhelm the efforts of the environmentally conscious and those who care about eradicating poverty.

The third world countries are sinking deeper into environmental problems although global and national knowledge about ecology has grown manifold in the last two decades.

In Asian region alone the major problems are:

Land

850 million hectares of soil that is degraded is in Asia and the Pacific accounting for 24 percent of the regions land.

Forests

Deforestation remains one of the major environmental issues in Asia due to industrialization, agricultural expansion and forestry product trade. Deforestation in the Asia Pacific region increased from 2 million hectares per year during 1976-81 to 3.9 million hectares per year during 1981-90. Tropical forest area decreased by 6.7 percent during 1981-90 and natural tropical forest area by 11.1 percent, the highest rate observed for this type of forest as compared with other regions.

Water

Increasing water scarcity is the likely scenario for many countries in Asia. Fresh water availability of below 1000 cubic meters per capita per year indicates water scarcity. Singapore is already water scarce, while Iran and India are heading in that direction. Atmosphere

The rapid 3.6 percent annual growth of every demand for the whole region in 1990-92 is an important implication of economic growth in Asia; Urban air pollution is serious in many major cities in the region, while health threats arise from indoor pollution. Acid rain has emerged as a significant problem.

Biodiversity

The drive for increased agricultural production has resulted in the loss of genetic diversity. The flora and fauna of region are threatened now more than ever before. India is expected to produce 75 percent of its rice with just 10 varieties by 2005, as compared to 30,000 varieties traditionally cultivated; 1500 varieties of rice disappeared in Indonesia during 1975-90. Due to coastal habitat loss and degradation marine biodiversity is also being lost

URBAN AND INDUSTRIAL ENVIRONMENTS

Urbanization generates the environmental stress with region which is related to poverty as well as economic growth and affluence. The rise of cities has been accompanied by a proliferation of slums and squatter settlements without access to basic infrastructure, clean water and sanitation, with associated health risks; the lack of basic infrastructure also results in local environmental degradation.

Mean-while urban environmental problems resulting from growth and affluence include congestion, increasing air and water pollution, loss of productive agricultural land, loss of coastal habitats to conversion and land reclamation over extraction of ground and water resources resulting in land subsidence, and deforestation as a consequence of increased demand for construction timber.

This information gives just a few slices of the environmental challenges before us.

Bearing the main brunt of the problems are the local communities and the poor, who live close to the natural environment and whose land, forests and resources are being negatively affected by the forces of global and national commerce. The communities and groups in developing countries which are adversely affected by globalization and commercialization are: –

Local Communities in rural and urban areas which have to make way for development projects as economic growth and modernization continues to sweep across the region. These include farmers and indigenous people making way for large dams, mining projects, logging of forests, Conversion of land to plantations and urban settlers and squatters who have to make way for urban projects such as highways, golf courses & hotels, office buildings and housing estates.

Rural Villagers and Urban squatter areas near toxic dumps or hazardous industries which are usually located in areas where the poor communities live, and workers facing hazards at the work-place including toxic chemicals, heavy metals and dangerous work processes.

Small farmers who may find that, as a result of agricultural liberalization, they will have to reduce the prices of their products (thus reducing their net incomes) some of them) may have to close their farms as being uncompetitive.

Govt. and public employees (including of public enterprises) who face retrenchment from their jobs as a result of privatization, Lower income and poor consumers who may no longer be able to receive the same level of subsidised health care, water supply, housing or welfare services as Governments reduce or eliminate social spending or change their financing system towards the cost recovery and the user must-pay approach.

Because of poverty and the unemployment situation, many children are forced to work, often in conditions of misery; while many women are pressurized into prostitution.

Hopes Belied

The ecological crises continues to unfold at breakneck speed under the influence of commercial interests, now driven even further by the competitive pressures of globalization. At the same time the globalization process has pitted company against company, country against country and individuals against one another. Under the vicious fight for market shares and for profits to survive globalization and liberalization have replaced every environmental and social item on the high priority agenda list. More-over because of its unequal nature, globalization may benefit a small number (of countries, of people) but alienates, marginalizes and even impoverishes large number of countries and peoples.

Some years ago, at the Earth Summit, 1992, hopes had been high that the world’s political leaders had at last recognized the environmental crises and would take steps to forge a new North South partnership to tackle both environmental and development problems together in a package and through a comprehensive plan.

Ten years later, these hopes seem to have vanished. The RIO plus Five Summit at the U.N. in New York concluded in June 1997 without a political statement because the divide between North and South countries was too wide to bridge.

In the years after the RIO Summit the environment has dropped many notches down the global and national agendas. More-over, “development” by which is meant the solidarity or partnership shown towards people in developing countries to help them eradicate poverty and social ills, is also fast vanishing as a principle and an agenda item, in the countries of the North and thus in the international agenda.

The major reason is that, in the years after RIO the process of globalization linked to liberalization has gained so much force that it has undermined, and is undermining, the sustainable development agenda. Commerce and the perceived need to remain competitive in a global market and to pamper and cater to the demands of the companies and the rich have become the top priority of Govt. in the North and some in the South. The environment welfare of the poor, global partnership have all been dislodged and sacrificed in this wave of free market mania.

Humble Warriors

However there are thousands of gras-root movements & groups that have taken their own initiative to fight for their survival, livelihoods or the larger public cause. These are the groups and the heroes and heroines of sustainable development that include:-

The indigenous people of the rainforests, who are desperately guarding sometimes with their lives the remainder of the world’s rain forests.

The local communities and environment activists of the North who are also fighting to save the remains of their old forests from the logger’s axe, who are bravely battling the toxic dumps and hazardous industries located in their neighborhood.

The communities in every region that have had to bravely defend their lands, homes and resources from the encroachment of commercial interests and big billion dollar projects that all too often run out to be economically unviable and ecologically destructive creating millions of environmental refugees.

The thousands of farmers around the world, who have suffered from the ill effects of Chemical based agriculture, have switched to organic farming on their own, and are rebuilding the land, despite the lack of support from the agriculture establishment.

The consumers and consumer movements that are fighting against unhealthy products and unsustainable consumption patterns who campaign for breast-feeding instead of baby foods, who raise the alarm over hazardous pesticides and pharmaceutical drugs dumped into the third world who have taken the tobacco industry to courts & faced it, in the U.S at least its liability and pay billions of dollars in compensation, and to agree to request that the Govt. regulate their behavior.

The individuals, the campaigners and two scientists who are exposing the dark side of genetic engineering in the midst of the industry media hype, and who are waging a campaign against the patenting of life and the cloning of natures creation.

The women, who are all too often in the forefront of the communities fight for survival, hugging the trees to prevent their being chopped, standing with the men to face the bulldozer, fighting against toxic industries and dumps to prevent the poisoning of children.

The brave ordinary, people, often the poorest and most humble of their societies are the true practitioners and the real heroes of the sustainable development that the rest of us only talk about. They are in the forefront of the battle to defend their rights and to save not only their world but our world and on our behalf, always with hardship and bravery, and some-time paying with their lives.

These hundreds and thousand of local community leaders and the millions of ordinary people around the world have provided us the hope that something is being done to save the earth in other words to give chance to earth to live the life ordered to it.

The time is indeed right ripe for a paradigm shift, away from a model based on competitiveness, greed and market expansion to the sustainable development approach, premised on cooperation and international partnership that stresses the rights of people and balances economic activities with social and environmental goals..

Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi on the Sufi Masters

4 Votes

 

Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi on the Sufi Masters  :

About Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi Hafizullah Ta’ala :

Born in Damascus on the 13th of Dhul Hijja, 1382 AH (1963 CE), Shaykh Sayyid Muhammad Abul Huda al-Yaqoubi is from a noble family of scholars that descend from the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him). From this household have emerged numerous renowned men of Allah who have taught the sacred sciences for many centuries. Shaykh Muhammad’s father, the light of Damascus and master of the Islamic disciplines, Sayyid Ibrahim al-Yaqoubi, was one of the greatest scholars of The Levant in recent times.

Shaykh Muhammad’s grandfather was a great scholar and Gnostic, Sayyid Ismail al-Yaqoubi; his father’s maternal uncle was Shaykh Arabi al-Yaqoubi and his paternal uncle was the famous Gnostic, Shaykh Sharif al-Yaqoubi. Amongst his blessed ancestors, three have held the Maliki Imamate at the Grand Umayyad Mosque in Damascus – may Allah envelope them all in His mercy.

Shaykh Muhammad traces his lineage back to the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) through the great Mawlay Idris al-Anwar who built the city of Fes, a descendant of Sayyiduna al-Hasan the Second, who is the son of Sayyiduna al-Hasan (may Allah be pleased with him), the grandson of the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) and son of Sayyiduna Ali ibn Abi Talib (may Allah ennoble his countenance).

Sayyiduna Imam ibn Ata’illah al Iskandari Raheemahullah

2 Votes

 

 

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

 

Alhamdulillahi Rabbil ‘Alameen wa afdhal ul salaato wa atammu tasleem ‘ala Sayyiduna wa Mawlana Muhammad wa ‘ala aalihee wa sahbihee ‘ajma’een.

 

 The blessed resting place of Shaykh Ahmad ibn Ata’illah Raheemahullah

 

Sayyiduna ‘Taj al Deen’, Shaykh Abu’l Fadl Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al Kareem ibn Ata’illah al Iskandari raheemahullah known simply as ibn Ata’illah al Iskandari – raheemahullah – was born in Alexandria [Iskandariyya], Egypt  over 700 years ago. Shaykh ibn Ata’illah raheemahullah were exposed to the Deen at a very young age, and this was pivotal in them later becoming a great Maliki Jurist and a Muhaddith. Although initially they were sceptical of Sufism – although their father was a student of Shaykh Abu’l Abbas al Mursi raheemahullah – this view changed for the better when they themselves set their eyes upon Shaykh Abu’l Abbas al Mursi raheemahullah. Verily, this was the power of the ‘iron gaze’ that the Awliyah e Kaamileen possess.

 

They are the third Qutb of the golden Shadhili Silsila, their Shaykh was the venerable Shaykh, the great Qutb, Sayyiduna Shihab al Deen Abu’l Abbas Ahmad ibn ‘Umar ibn ‘Ali al Mursi raheemahullah who was the disciple of the Qutb of all Qutbs, the Imam of our blessed path and the reviver of Prophetic teaching, Sayyiduna al Shaykh Abu’l Hassan ‘Ali ibn ‘Abdullah, ibn ‘Abd al Jabbar al Hassani wal Husayni al Shadhili radhi Allahu ‘anh.

 

It is related that the first thing that Shaykh ibn Ata’illah raheemahullah said to Shaykh Abu’l Abbas al Mursi raheemahullah was “O Master, by Allah I love you”, Shaykh Abu’l Abbas al Mursi raheemahullah replied “May Allah love you as you love me.” It was at this stage that Shaykh Abu’l Abbas al Mursi raheemahullah enlightened Shaykh ibn Ata’illah raheemahullah with beautiful pearls of wisdom by saying:

 

“There are four states of the servant, not five: blessings, trials, obedience and disobedience. If you are blessed, then what Allah Ta’ala requires of you is thankfulness. If you are tried, then what Allah Ta’ala requires of you is patience. If you are obedient, then what Allah Ta’ala requires of you is the witnessing of His blessings upon you. If you are disobedient, then what Allah Ta’ala requires of you is asking forgiveness.”

 

It was with these words that the venerable Shaykh inspired Shaykh ibn Ata’illah raheemahullah to become a loyal disciple for more than twelve years. The Shaykh said so beautifully about Shaykh Abu’l Abbas al Mursi raheemahullah that “I never heard the Shaykh say anything in my life which contradicted the Shari’ah.”

 

 

The virtue, eloquence, presence and insights that Shaykh ibn Ata’illah raheemahullah had was countless, and it is through this scrupulous character that they had many followers, enabling them to spread the Shadhili way far and wide. They were a Master in the sciences of Shari’ah and the sciences of Tassawuf. Furthermore, they also had a private Zawiyah for their students and disciples, and taught at the al Azhar University and the Mansooriyah Madrassah.

 

They were a Mujaddid [reviver of the Deen] of their time and had many karamaat [miracles]. One such karamaat was when they were heard speaking from their blessed grave to Kamal al Deen ibn al Hamam who had gone to the venerable Shaykh’s tomb to recite Surah Hud, in turn, Kamal al Deen was also blessed to be buried there. There was also the occasion where one of their disciples saw the blessed Shaykh in three different places when performing the pilgrimage [Hajj] in Makkah al Mukarrama. When he returned he asked people if the Shaykh had left Egypt while he had gone to Hijaaz, to which they all replied that the Shaykh had been teaching at al Azhar and had stayed in the country. They went to see the noble Shaykh, and before they asked the question, the venerable Shaykh asked them who they had seen, to which the disciple replied “O Master, I saw you.” The Shaykh smiled and said “The realised sage fills the universe. If he summoned the Qutb verily he would answer.” [Allahu Akbar!]

 

Another karamaat that I would like to share is the instance where three men [who were students of the Shaykh] were on their way to attend the noble Shaykh’s majalis [lectures]. One said “If I were free from my family, I would become an ascetic”, the other said “I pray and fast, but I do not see a speck of benefit” to which the third said “Indeed, my prayers do not even please me, so how can they please my Lord?” On arrival to the majlis, the noble Shaykh continued their discourse and in their presence they said “There are among people those who say…” and repeated each and every word the three men said in secret. These are not the words of an ordinary man! For those of us who are familiar with ibn Taymiyyah, it was Shaykh ibn Ata’illah al Iskandari raheemahullah that successfully debated him after ibn Taymiyyah had come to Egypt on release from imprisonment.

 

In regards to the Shadhili way itself, the venerated Shaykh related that:

 

“The Shadhili people [those within the Tariqa] were shown to Sayyiduna Shaykh Abu’l Hassan al Shadhili who interceded for them, and asked Allah Ta’ala to put them in Jannah.”

 

They are the author of some of the most sublime books in the history of Islam, indeed the author of books that are still being used to this day! The superb books that are recommended for all of us to read are: Taj al ‘Aroos [the Crown of the Bride]; Miftah al Falah wa Misbah al Arwah [the Key to Salvation]; Kitab al Tanwir fi Isqat al Tadbir [the Book of Illumination]; Lataif al Minan fi Manaqib Abil ‘Abbas al Mursi wa Shaykhihi Abil Hassan [the Subtle Blessings in the Saintly Lives of Abu’l Abbas al Mursi and his Master Abu’l Hassan]; and the magnificent Kitab al Hikam [the Book of Wisdom]. I have compiled some quotes from these books for our benefit inshaAllah. Please understand and reflect upon these advices.

 

The blessed resting place of Qutb ul Aqtaab Shaykh Abu’l Hassan al Shadhili radhi Allahu ‘anh

 

Taj al ‘Aroos

 

“Do you wish to struggle against your lower self as you strengthen it with low desires until it overcomes you?! How ignorant you are!”

 

“The heart is a tree that is watered with the water of obedience and its fruit is what you find in the outcome: the eye’s fruit is contemplation, the ear’s fruit is listening to Qur’an, the tongue’s fruit is remembrance, and the hands’ and feet’s fruit is seeking goodness.  If the heart becomes dry, the fruit falls. If it becomes barren do much remembrances of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. Be not like the sick individual who says: I will not take medicine until I find a cure. It is said to him: you will not find a cure until you take medicine.”

 

“Struggling does not come with sweetness.  The only thing that comes with it is the spear heads of arrows. So, struggle against your lower self as this is the greatest struggle.”

 

“If you desire repentance, it is necessary upon you not to be void of reflection throughout your life.  Reflect on what you have done during your day.  If you find obedience, show gratitude to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala for it. If you find disobedience, reproach yourself for that and seek forgiveness from Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala and repent to Him.”

 

“The likeness of one who prays, without presence of heart, is like someone sending a King, a gift of one hundred empty boxes; thus deserving his punishment. Whoever prays with presence of heart is like someone giving the king a precious sapphire; worth a thousand gold coins. The king will always remember him because of it.”

 

Miftah al Falah

 

“The remembrance of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala in the heart is the sword of the novices with which they combat their enemies and repel the afflictions that befall them.”

 

“Your Saying ‘Allah is Most Great’ does not mean that He is greater than something else, since there is nothing else alongside of Him, so that it could be said that He is greater than it. Rather, the meaning of Allahu Akbar is that He is much too great to be perceived by the senses or for the depths of His Majesty to be reached by reason and logic, and indeed, that He is much too great to be known by an other-than-Him for truly, no one knows Allah but Allah.”

 

“Invoking the letters of Allah’s Name without presence of mind is invocation of the tongue; invoking with presence of mind is invocation of the heart; and invoking with an absence of self-awareness because of absorption in the Invoked is the invocation of the Self – this is the hidden invocation!”

 

“The most excellent of those who perform good deeds are those who most often remember Allah in all situations.”

 

 

Kitab al Tanwir

 

 

“The deeper our need in this world, the higher our potential is in the next world.”

 

“If you do not know the blessings you have when you have them, then Allah will teach you about them by taking them away from you.”

 

“We suffer the pains of labour to survive in this world and to find our place in the next world. The deeper our need in this world, the higher our potential is in the next world.”

 

“Sometimes darknesses come over you in order that He makes you aware of the value of His blessings upon you.”

 

“If you meet people enmeshed in the worldly pursuits and evil habit, don’t be fooled and don’t condemning them, instead be compassionate toward them. Instead of asking Allah to curse them, pray for Allah to favour them. That is the cure to conceit, which is to love and desire for all what you would love Allah to do to you, mainly that He forgives you and shower His favour and mercy on you.”

 

Lataif al Minan

 

“Someone who acquires knowledge in order to gain this world and to achieve status therein may be likened to someone who picks up excrement with a sapphire spoon. How noble the means, and how ignoble the end sought!”

 

“If you fulfill your commitment to exercise patient endurance, Allah will reward you with forbearance [hilm] so that you will be able to forgive and pardon. He may even reward you – out of the Light of His goodly acceptance – with the wherewithal to have such compassion on the one who wronged you that you call down blessing upon Him and see your prayer answered.”

 

“When the people of Allah feel afraid, they also feel hopeful, knowing that beyond both their fear and that which has caused their fear are the attributes of the One in Whom they have placed their hope, and of Whose mercy and graces they must never despair. Hence, they rely upon His magnanimity, realising as they do that He has only frightened them in order to cause them to focus upon Him alone, and thereby to bring them back to Himself.”

 

“Know that when you take pride in a powerful person, this does not mean that you share in this person’s power or high rank. The friends of Allah take pride in the Prophets whose guidance they have followed and whose path they have embraced; however, they do not for this reason share in their power and standing.”

 

“If Allah desires you to enable you to recognise one of His friends, He will prevent you from looking at the person’s mere humanity and cause you to see, instead, that which makes them one of Allah’s elect.”

 

“Your Shaykh is not the one whose statements have challenged you; your Shaykh is the one whose spiritual state has roused you to wakefulness.”

 

“The one in a state of annihilation receives from Allah, while the one in a state of substinence sets forth to others what he has received from Allah.”

 

“May Allah not allow what we say and hear to become an argument against us. Rather may He cause us, together with you, to be servants who are guided aright by His love, who continue in affectionate devotion to Him and who are blessed with His nearness.”

 

Kitab al Hikam

 

“Perhaps, He opened for you the door of worship but did not open for you the door of acceptance; and perhaps, He decreed for you a sin and it became a reason for your reaching Him.”

 

“When He causes your tongue to supplicate, know that He wants to give you.”

 

“If you were not to reach Him until after all your bad traits vanish and your claims disappear, you would never reach Him. Rather when He wants you to reach Him, He covers your traits with His traits and makes you reach Him with that which is from Him to you and not that which is from you to Him.”

 

“Become realized in your attributes and He will strengthen you with His:

Realize your humility and He will strengthen you with His pride.

Realize your incapability and He will strengthen you with His ability.

Realize your weakness and He will strengthen you with His power.”

 

“Better to look at the defects hidden within you than to look for the unseen worlds that are veiled from you. The Real is not veiled – it is you that are veiled from seeing Him.”

 

“The root of every act of rebellion, every appetite and every moment of heedlessness is satisfaction with one’s self. The root of every act of obedience, every restraint and every moment of wakefulness is lack of satisfaction with one’s self.”

 

“Better to keep the company of an ignorant man who is not satisfied with himself than a man of knowledge who is satisfied with himself.

What knowledge does the self-satisfied scholar have?

What ignorance does the ignorant man who is not self-satisfied have?”

 

“When He opens a way for you and makes Himself known to you, then do not worry about your lack of deeds. He only opened the way for you because He desired to make Himself known to you. Do you not see that while He grants gnosis of Himself to you, you have only deeds to offer Him? What He brings you – What you bring Him – What a difference there is between them!”

 

“The best you can seek from Him, is what He seeks from you.”

 

“Your turning to Allah is your turning away from creation.Your turning to creation is your turning away from Allah.”

 

“Nothing is difficult if you seek it through your Lord Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, and nothing is easy if you seek it through yourself.”

 

“Among the signs of success at the end is the turning to Allah Ta’ala at the beginning.He who is illumined at the beginningis illumined at the end.”

 

 

Sayyidi al Shaykh Muhammad Abu’l Huda al Yaqoubi al Hassani Hafidhahullah

 

I would just like to finish off with a few words of my beloved and noble teacher, murshid and father, the leader of the Ahlul Bayt in our time, the teacher of the Ulama, the light of this Ummah, the crown of the Scholars, the standard bearer of the Shadhili Tariqa, al Shaykh al Sayyid Muhammad Abul Huda al Yaqoubi, (may Allah protect and preserve him for the sake of the Ummah).

 

“Some people seek fame, others seek to be unknown and hidden. The best are those who seek Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.”

 

In regards to the blessed and golden Shadhili way, they have said:

 

‎”The Shadhili path focuses greatly on the Prophet sal Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam as he sal Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam is central to our path. No disciple of the Shadhili tariqa will leave this world without seeing the Prophet sal Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam in a wakeful state before he leaves this earth.”

 

They have written the Direction for Seekers seeking to progress in the spiritual path, below is an extract of these magnificent and sublime instructions: 

 

“O vanishing servant delighted in ecstasy, dwelling in the zone of annihilation

To other than the Master: you have to wake up, and swiftly feel your own sensation.

Look carefully! You are you, a contingent being; You could never be He; no union is allowed

He is He: Allah, The Eternal, The Unique – by heart is witnessed by reason is found.

Stay back and uphold this essential contrast; to remove from your mind and your heart this cloud.

The top Sufi Masters clearly distinguished, and warned in this field of the slightest deviation.”

 

An excerpt from a poem written by Sayyiduna al Shaykh during a flight on 23rd Shawwal, 1432

 

“We pledged ourselves to love each other for Allah, Our only remedy is the remembrance of Allah, We offer our souls to support this deen of Allah, And guard the covenants of all the people of Allah.

Al-Khidr and the early Shadhili Masters

1 Vote

 

Abul Abbas al-Mursi (d. 685 A.H) said, “Al-Khadir, peace be upon him, came to me once and introduced himself to me, and I acquired from him the knowledge of the souls of the believers, are they tortured or in bliss, so now even if a thousand scholars argue with me about that, and say that he is dead, I would not go back to believing what they say.”

He also said, “As for Al-Khadir, peace be upon him, he is alive. And I have shaken his hand with this palm, and he told me that everyone who says the following every morning, will become one of the Abdaal”:

اللهم اغفر لأمة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم، اللهم أصلح أمة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم، اللهم تجاوز عن أمة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم، اللهم اجعلنا من أمة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم

Some students asked al-Mursi’s master Al-Shadhili about this and he said, “Abul Abbas has said the truth.” (7)

Al-Khidr and Al-Dabbagh

When sayyidi Abd al-Aziz al-Dabbagh became determined to reach pure servanthood to Allah, he began looking for everyone that people pointed to and referred to as a shaykh, and considered him to be a wali of Allah, and would make that person his shaykh and recite his litanies (awrad), but eventually he would feel his chest became constricted and that he was not progressing, so he would leave it and look for another one, and the same thing would happen again., and this went on for 22 years. During that time, he would stay every Friday night at the tomb of sidi Ali bin Hirzihim to read the Burda of al-Busiri with others. One night, after finishing it, he found a man sitting under the lote-tree near the tomb’s door, and that man spoke to him, revealing to him that he knew what Al-Dabbagh was thinking about, so he knew that he was one of theawliya aarifeen. So Al-Dabbagh asked him to give him a wird, but that man would keep ignoring him until he heard al-Dabbagh ask for it with such determination that he knew he would not ignore what he told him. Then he said to al-Dabbagh: I will not give you the wird until you give me an oath by Allah that you do not leave it, and al-Dabbagh did so. So that man said, Repeat every day seven thousand times:

اللهم يا رب بجاه سيدنا محمد بن عبد الله صلى الله عليه وسلم اجمع بيني وبين سيدنا محمد بن عبد الله في الدنيا قبل الآخرة

Then the man who takes care of the tomb came, and the man said to him: take care of this man for me, so the caretaker said, “I will consider him my master, master.” On the day that caretaker died, right before his soul left his body, he said to al-Dabbagh: “Do you know who that man who taught you the dhikr at the lote-tree is? He is sayyidna al-Khidr, peace be upon him.” So for four years, Al-Dabbagh repeated that du’a seven thousand times a day, until he received the spiritual opening (fath) (8).

When al-Dabbagh became a great shaykh, and the Qutb of his time, his student the scholar Al-Lamati asked him questions about al-Khidr. The Qur’an tells us that Al-Khidr knew some things from the world of the unseen (like the future, etc), that the Prophet Moses, alayhi assalam, did not know. Because of this, many scholars argued that Al-Khidr must be a prophet, for if he were just a righteous servant and wali of Allah, he could not have known more than a prophet about these things. Sayyidi Al-Dabbagh replied,

Generally, the (spiritually) great are strong in witnessing Al-Haqq, Most Transcendent, and weak in witnessing the creation, whereas the (spiritually) small are strong in witnessing the creation and weak in witnessing al-Haqq, Most Transcendent. And this is what happened in the story between sayyidna al-Khidr and sayyidna Musa- upon our Prophet and upon them be peace and blessings- in what was related to us by Allah Most High in his great Book, from the story of the ship, the young man, and the wall. For knowledge of these things was hidden from sayyidna Musa alayhi assalam because he was (absorbed) in the witnessing of that which is stronger than that, and that is Al-Haqq, Most Transcendent, and therefore Moses’s ignorance of these matters is utmost (spiritual) perfection.

His analogy, in relation to al-Khidr, is like two servants for a king. As for one of them, the king has chosen him for himself, and made him sit with him, having nothing to do but standing in front of the king, looking at his face, and if the king left he left with him, and if the king entered he entered with him, and if he ate he ate with him and if he drank he drank with him, and if he spoke he spoke with him. While the other servant has been appointed by the king to run the affairs of his subjects, so he goes out to them and does with them as the king commands, and speaks to them about their affairs and how to improve their state, and he might be away from the king for a long time in order to do these things. There is no doubt, then, that the first servant is closer to the king and more knowledgeable of his secrets from the second, even though, if he were asked about any of the affairs of the king’s subjects, he would not know about them as much as the second servant, especially if the subjects lived far away from the city of the king. And thus was the state of Moses with Allah Most High, for he is like the first servant, and sayyidna Al-Khidr is like the second servant, for sayyidna Musa is greater than him, without question, because he is the Messenger of Allah, and his kaleem (the one with whom he spoke) and his chosen one….

[Al-Khidr] is not a prophet, but a servant that Allah has ennobled by giving him knowledge of Himself…and there is nothing in his knowledge of the preceding matters that Moses did not know about, which necessitates that a non-prophet be more knowledgeable than a prophet, for what we have said earlier, that Moses- peace be upon him- was pre-occupied from these things with witnessing of Al-Haqq, which is something unparalleled, and therefore there is nothing that necessitates belief in (al-Khidr’s) prophethood.

16th Rabi’ al-Awwal | Muhammad Ibn Sulayman al-Jazuli al-Hasani [Writer of Dalail al-Khayrat]

3 Rate this

 

16th Rabi' al-Awwal  Muhammad Ibn Sulayman al-Jazuli al-Hasani [Writer of Dalail al-Khayrat]

Al-Qutb al-Kamil, Al-Imam Abu Abdullah Muhammad Ibn Abdur Rahman Ibn Abi Bakr Ibn Suleiman Al-Jazuli Simlali al-Hassani al-Maghribi (d. 869/1454). Referred to his grandfather, he is called shortly Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Suleiman al-Jazuli. He belonged to the Berber tribe of Jazula which is settled in the Sus area of Morocco between the Atlantic and the Atlas Mountains. Although the date of Imam al-Jazouli’s birth is not known, enough information exists to provide a rough outline of his origins and background. His nisba (Attributional Name) tells us the he came from the Simlala tribe, one of the most important Sanhaja Berber groups in Jazula. The turbulent political environment of Simlala in the fifteenth century forced the Shaykh to leave his homeland because its culture of violence made serious scholarship impossible. As it turned out, the young sharif had to travel all the way to Fez to get an education, since the insufficient intellectual resources of Marrakech (Morocco), the usual destination for students from central and southern-Saharan Morocco, made study in that city impossible as well.

He studied locally and then travelled to the Madrasat AS-Saffareen in Fés, the spiritual capital of Morocco where his room is still pointed out to visitors. In Fes, He memorised the four volumes Mudawwana of Imam Malik and met scholars of his time such as Ahmad Zarruq, and Muhammad ibn ‘Abdullah Amghar, who became his Shaykh in the Tariqa or Sufi path. After setting a tribal feud he left the area and spent the next forty years in Makkah Mukarrama, Madina Munawwarah and Jerusalem. After this, he returned to Fez where he completed Dala’il al-Khayrat.

He took the Shadiliya Path from Shaykh Abu Abdullah Muhammad Ibn Amghar as-Saghir, one of the Ashraaf (Descendants of the Prophet) of Bani Amghar village. He spent forteen years in Khalwa (seclusion) and then went to Safi where he gathered around him many followers. The governor of Safi felt obliged to expel him and as a result, Jazuli called down Allah’s wrath on the town and it subsequently fell into the hands of the Portugese for forty years According to a tradition, it was the governor of Safi who poisoned Jazuli and caused his death, whilst engaged in prayer, in 869 AH(or 870 or 873)

When he became a Complete Shaykh, he headed towards the town of Safi where he gathered many disciples around him. Later on, Sidi al-Jazuli moved to Afwiral, a Sus village in Morocco, where he established his zawiya that became a centre of spirituality attracting 12665 disciples of his. His Tariqa was mainly based on making prayers upon Sayyiduna Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) as indicates his book: (Dalail al-Khayrat), which he published in Fés after spending forty years in Mecca, Medina Mounawara and Jerusalem. Dalail al-Khayrat or “ad-Dalil” as Moroccans prefer to call it, is considered as an exclusive source to make prayers upon Sayyiduna Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him), as well as a correct and innovative piece of work ever published on the issue.

It is said that Sidi Muhammad Al-Jazuli once went on a journey, when in great need of water for making ablutions; he came upon a well but could not reach the water without a bucket and rope which he did not have. He became very worried. A young girl saw this and came to his assistance. She spat into the well whereupon the water rose to the top of its own accord. Seeing this miracle, he asked the girl ‘And how is that possible?’ She replied ‘I was able to do this through my asking for blessings upon the Prophet, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon the him.’ Having thus seen the benefit of asking for blessings upon the Prophet, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him, he decided to write Dalail al-Khayrat.

The Dala’il al-Khayrat, the most celebrated manual of Blessings on the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) in history In fact, the book of Dalail al-Khayrat was welcomed by the Ummah east and west. Many scholars concentrated to explain some of its meanings and benefits such as Sidi Suleiman al-Jamal Shafii, Sidi Hasan al-Adwi al-Misri, Sidi Abdelmajid Sharnubi who call his book (Manhaj A-Sa’adat), Sidi Muhammad al-Mahdi Ibn Ahmad al-Fasi who call his book (Matalia al-Masaraat Bijalaa Dalail Al Khayrat), and the famous Savant of Allah Sidi Ahmad Zaruk; the diciple of his Shaykh Sidi al-Jazuli (may Allah lighten his tomb).

Sidi Abu Abdullah Muhammad Al-Jazuli passed away in 869 AH and was buried inside his Zawiya in Afwiral. Seventy-seven (77) years after his death, his body was exhumed for removal to Marrakech and found to be uncorrupted. [Adapted from The Encyclopedia of Islam, 1957 Leiden]

He became one of the Seven Men of Marrakech in addition to Sidi Qadi Ayaad, Sidi al-Abbas Sabti, Sidi Joussouf Ben Ali, Sidi Abdul Aziz, Sidi Moul al-Ksour, and Sidi al-Soheyli (may Allah be pleased with all of them).

اولئك كتب في قلوبهم الايمان وايدهم بروح منه ويدخلهم جنات تجري من تحتها الانهار خالدين فيها

It is these upon whose hearts Allah has ingrained faith, and has aided them with a Spirit from Himself; and He will admit them into Gardens beneath which rivers flow, abiding in them forever

Assalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh , We pray this finds everyone well, wrapped in Allah’s mercy and steadfastly traveling the path to eternal felicity, in sha Allah.
Poetry in praise of Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi (Hafidahullah) 2013:
” The ocean of truth, the fountain of the lights of the ‘Awliya Sayyidi Abul Huda, 

Your gaze awakens a thousand hearts; your words are precious pearls,

Your gaze awakens my innermost being and rectifies me and I become a wayfarer to Allah,

Your words are nectar for the seekers; your presence sends them into a state of ecstasy,

You are intoxicated by the remembrance of the Beloved,

Your Maqam was recognised by the greatest Ascetics of their time, your etiquettes with them are simply sublime,

You are the illustrious guide; I will always remain by your side.’’

The Glorious Companions Commemorating the Blessed Birth [Mawlid an-Nabawi Sharif]‏

The Glorious Companions Commemorating the Blessed Birth [Mawlid an-Nabawi Sharif]‏

Dear Readers, in the previous email, we provided the proofs from Qur’an and Hadith over the legitimacy of Celebrating the Blessed Birth (Mawlid Sharif) of Beloved Habeeb Kareem Alaihi afDalus Salati wat Tasleem. Now let us examine the Aqeeda (belief) of the Glorious AsHaab al-Kiraam in this concern, who are guiding beacons for us.

What Dothe Glorious Companions Believe?
هاجرت إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقدمت عليه منصرفه من تبوك، فأسلمت، فسمعت العباس بن عبد المطلب يقوليا رسولالله إنى أريد أن أمتدحك، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلمقل، لا يفضض الله فاك

After gaining victory and success in Ghazwa Tabook when Rasoolullah (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) arrived in Madinatul Munawwara, Hadrat Sayyiduna Abbas (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) requested permission from the Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) to read a few stanzas in his praise then Mercy on the Mankind (Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him) said, “My dear Uncle! Go ahead. May Almighty Allah keep your mouth well.”

This is what Sayyiduna al-`Abbas ibn `Abd al-Muttalib said:

من قبلها طبت في الظلال وفى مستودع حيث يخصف الورق
ثم هبطت البلاد لا بشر أنت ولا مضغة ولا علق
بل نطفة تركب السفين وقد ألجم نسرا وأهله الغرق
تنقل من صلب إلى رحم إذا مضى عالم بدا طبق
وردت نارا لخليل مستترا في صلبه أنت كيف يحترق
ثم احتوى بيتك المهيمن خندف علياء تحتها النطق
وأنت لما ولدت أشرقت الارض ونارت بنورك الافق
فنحن في ذلك الضياء وفى النور وسبل الرشاد نخترق

… Before you came to this world,
you were excellent in the shadows and in the repository (i.e. loins)
in the time when they (Adam and Eve) covered themselves with leaves.
Then you descended through the ages…
When you were born, the earth shone
and your light illuminated the horizon.
We travel in that illumination and in the light and in the paths of right guidance.”

Flags on the Birth of Beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam:

Sayyidatuna Aamina Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha states,

ورأيت ثلاثة أعلام مضروبات علما في المشرق وعلما في المغرب وعلما على ظهر الكعبة فأخذني المخاض فولدت محمدا صلى اللهعليه وسلم

Beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam and His Companions Entered Madina Munawwarah Carrying a Flag:

When Prophet Peace and Blessings be Upon Him Migrated to Madinah Munawwarah, on reaching MoDa-e-Gameem near Madina; at that time Burayda Aslami along with 70 Horse riders of Bani Saham Tribe came to Prophet Peace and Blessings be Upon Him to arrest him (Ma’aadh Allah) but being inspired of Prophet’s blessed and wonderful personality, he got highly admired and accepted Islam along with his tribe. Then he asked Prophet Peace and Blessings be Upon Him

لا تدخل المدینة الا ومعك لواء، فحل عمامة ثم شدھا في رمح ثم مشی بین یدیه صلی الله علیه وسلم
Please do not enter Madinah Munawwarah until we have a Flag. So, he tied his Turban on his arc and entered in Madinah Munawwarah with Prophet Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam carrying that FLAG. [Wafa al-Wafa, Vol. 1, Page 243, published from Dar aHya at-Turath al-Arabi, Berut – Lebanon]

Noble Companion of Beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam recites his Mawlid and Praises Him

For this act of Hadrat Hassan, Holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said

The late Shaykh Rahimahullah says:

“They have said that the word love (hubb) possesses two ‘ba’s’: it originates from the word ‘hubub’; however, the first ‘ba’ merged with the second ‘ba’ – the lover was annihilated in the beloved, and for that reason the first ‘ba’ was no longer manifested: it disappeared and was annihilated. This is true love: annihilation.”

Mawlid 2013

The birth of our Beloved Prophet, praise and peace be upon him, together with Its miracles have been transmitted to us by his mother Sayyidah Aamina Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha and those in attendance.

و كونه رافعاً رأسه عندما وضعته شاخصاً ببصره إلى السماء ، و ما رأته من النور الذي خرج معه ولادته ، و ما رأته إذ ذاك أم عثمان بن أبي العاص من تدلي النجوم ، و ظهور النور عند ولادته ، حتى ما تنظر إلا النور

As our beloved Prophet, praise and peace be upon him, was born a radiant light accompanied him and he lifted his head towards the heavens and the mother of Othman’s Abil-As’s son witnessed stars lowering themselves and a light so bright appeared that she could see nothing other than light.
Dalail an-Nabuwwah lil Bayhaqi, Vol. 1, Page 113
Musnad Imam Ahmad, Vol. 4, Page 127

Abu Nu’aym reports from Abdullah bin Abbas Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhuma, who narrated that the mother of the Messenger SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, Sayyidah Amina Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha used to state,

لما خرج من بطني فنظرت اليه فاذا انابه ساجد ثم رايت سحابة بيضاء قد اقبلت من السماء حتى غشيته فغيب عن وجھي ، ثم تجلت فاذا انابه مدرج في ثوب صوف ابيض وتحته حريرة خضراء وقد قبض على ثلٰثة مفاتيح من اللؤلوء الرطب واذا قائل يقول قبض محمد على مفاتيح النصرة ومفاتيح الربح ومفاتيح النبوة ثم اقبلت سحابة اخرٰى حتى غشيته فغيب عن عيني ثم تجلت فاذا انابه قد قبض على حريرة خضراء مطوية واذ قائل يقول بخٍ بخٍ قبض محمد على الدنيا کلھا لم يبق خلق من اھلھا الادخل في قبضته

“When the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam was born, he fell straight into prostration. Then I saw a white cloud from the sky appearing and covering the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam such that HE SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam disappeared from me. When the cloud appeared, I saw that the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam was covered in a white woolly shawl and there was a green mat spread on the floor. Within the hands of the Messenger SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam there were three keys made of diamonds and there was an unseen voice heard saying, ‘The Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam has grasped the key of giving victory, the key of giving benefit and the key of Prophethood.’ Then I saw another cloud which enclosed the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam such that he disappeared from my view and it became illuminated. I saw that the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam is holding a folded piece of green silk in his blessed hands and an unseen voice was heard was saying, ‘How great! How great! The Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam has grasped the whole world; all the creation has entered into his grasp, with none left out.’”
Musnad Ahmad bin Hanbal, narrated from ibn Mas’ud RadiAllahu Anhu, [Al-Maktab al-Islami, Beirut], Vol. 1, Page 386
Sunan al-Darimi, the chapter on Ma U’tiya al-Nabiyyu Min al-Fadl, [Dar al-Mahasin li al-Taba’ah, Cairo], Vol. 1, Page 30
Al-Khasais al-Kubra, the chapter on Ma Zahara Fi Lailat Moulidi, [Markaz Ahl Sunnat, Gujarat], Vol. 1, Page 48

Ash Shifa, the mother of Abdur Rahman Ibn Awf Radi Allahu Anhuma attended his birth and tells us,

لما سقط صلى الله عليه و سلم على يدي و استهل سمعت قائلاً يقول : رحمك الله ، و أضاء لي ما بين المشرق و المغرب حتى نظرت إلى قصور الروم

“When he dropped into my hands he sneezed and I heard a voice saying, ‘May Allah have mercy upon you!’ The entire horizon became illuminated for me whereby I was able to see the castle of the Greeks.”
Dalail an-Nabuwwah lil Bayhaqi, Vol. 1, Page 12
Dalail an-Nabuwwah li Abi Nu’aym, Vol. 1, Page 136

On the authority of Abdullah ibn Abbās Radi Allahu Anhuma who narrates;

كان من دلالات حمل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أن كل دابة كانت لقريش نطقت تلك الليلة وقالت : حمل برسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ورب الكعبة ، وهو أمان الدنيا وسراج أهلها

“One of the signs of the birth of the Prophet Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam was that all the animals of the Quraish talked that night and said, ‘We swear by the Lord of the Ka’ba! That Prophet is coming who is the guardian/protector of the entire world and is the sun of its people” (shedding the light of guidance). [Al-Khasais al-Kubra with reference to Abi Nu’aym from ibn ‘Abbās Radi Allahu Anhu, the chapter on Ma Dhahara Fi Layla Moulidihi, (Markaz Ahl Sunnat, Gujarat), Vol. 1, Page 47]
Hafidh al-Iraqi mentioned in his book, Al-Mawrid Al-Haniyyu fi Mawlidis Saniyyi, from the route of Baqi Ibn Makhlad,

ومن الآيات التي ظهرت لمولده صلى الله عليه وسلم أن الشياطين رميت وقذفت بالشهب من السماء، وحُجب عنها خبر السماء كما ذكر بعض العلماء، لكن المشهور والمحفوظ أن قَذف الشياطين بالشهب عند مبعثه صلى الله عليه وسلم. ومنها أن إبليس حُجب عن خبر السماء فصاح ورنَّ رَنَّةً عظيمةً كما رنَّ حين لُعن، وحين أخرج من الجنة، وحين وُلد النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم، وحين نزلت الفاتحة

“Some scholars mentioned that another sign which accompanied the birth of the Prophet was that the devils were stricken with falling stars and were blocked from hearing any of the news exchanged by the angels in the sky. Among the signs is that Iblis, the forefather of the devils, was blocked from the news of the sky so he rang out a very loud scream. Likewise, he rang out when he was damned, when he was taken out of Paradise, and when the Chapter of the Fatihah was revealed.” [Al-Mawrid Al-Haniyyu fi Mawlidis Saniyyi]
Shaykh Abdullah Ibn Muhammad al-Harari records from Al-Bayhaqi in his book Ar-Rawaeh al-Zakiyya fi Mawlidi Khayiril Bariyyah:

ومنها ما سُمع من أجواف الأصنام ومن أصوات الهواتف بالبشارة بظهور الحق في وقت الزوال
Also among the signs are the sounds that were heard at the time of Zawal (beginning of noon time) coming from the interiors of the idols in Makkah announcing the good news of the arrival of Prophet Muhammad SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam. [Ar-Rawaeh al-Zakiyya fi Mawlidi Khayiril Bariyyah, Page 28]

Bayhaqi and Ibn Asakir and others narrated from Hani al-Makhzumi that he said:

At the birth of the beloved prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam every idol fell on its face; and the palaces of Chosroes, emperor of Persia, trembled, and fourteen of the towers fell; Lake Sawah that was worshiped disappeared; The Valley of Samavah, where for a number of years no water had been seen, now flowed with that element; The fire of Fars, which had not been extinguished for a thousand years, were quenched that night, on which likewise, the wisest of the Magian clerics dreamed that a number of strong camels led the horses of Arabia across the Tigris into their territory. On that night a light appeared in Hijaz filling the whole world and moving eastward; on the morning following, the thrones of all the kings were found reversed; the skill of the soothsayers (fortune-teller) departed, the magic of the sorcerers ended.

The fourteen (14) fallen balconies from the palace of Kisra mentioned in the hadith was a sign that the ruler ship of the Persians would last for only fourteen (14) more Persian kings. And this is what happened—the fourteenth (and last) Persian king ruled during the caliphate of Sayyiduna Uthman Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu.

The fire of the Persians is in reference to a fire that they had kept burning day and night for one thousand (1,000) years. At the time of the birth of the Prophet, the Persians were fire-worshipers. They worshipped the fire unrightfully. On the night of the birth of the Prophet, this fire went out — a sign of the truthful call of Prophet Muhammad to worship Allah alone.

The lake of Sawah/Sivah that was worshiped mentioned in the hadith was a lake so vast that ships used to sail in it. It dried up when the Prophet was born.

The blessed, radiant, honored, illuminated, fragrant, beautiful, sweet, admired, adored, esteemed, celebrated,
revered, respected, eulogized, delightful, angelic, elegant, beauteous, beloved, cherished, precious, ambrosial, perfumed, lovely, magnificent, marvellous house where The Beloved Prophet Muhammad [SallAllahu ‘Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam] was born.

Poetry in praise of The Green Dome | Mawlid Gift 2013

The Green Dome 2013 Mawlid 2013 Rabi ul Awwal 2013

The Green Dome:

The green dome, the mosque and the city are nothing to me without you…

 

When the full moon arrived, the caller was praised

The earth, the people, the city, their ranks were all raised

From a place full of fever from the chilling cold nights

To the safe asylum of faith and a citadel of lights

Your garden is in fact a piece of Paradise, so true

Where lovers flock in this life to gain proximity to you

The green dome, the mosque and the city are nothing to me without you…

 

Golden windows, the station where the peace is distributed

Granting forgiveness for the nation and loud voices are muted

The two companions there, residing in the best of homes

Under the shelter of what they say is the most exquisite of domes

But they have no need to ponder upon the colours or design

Because they are being sustained next to Allah’s most beautiful sign

The green dome, the mosque and the city are nothing to me without you…

 

The pulpit, the niche, the bench and the numerous pillars too

What worth would they have without being close to you?

Please, let them forgive me if they think I’ve said too much

But I can’t describe the feelings, the vision, never mind the touch

The palm trunk, the cemetery, the wives and the family too

Made great with Allah by virtue of who?

The green dome, the mosque and the city are nothing to me without you…

 

The Prophet, the Messenger, the Beloved, Muhammad the guide

The Master of the sons of Adam, a fact without pride

The one who Allah selected, the light to whom we adhere

I ask Allah to grant us love from you and of you, sincere

Allah sends peace and blessings upon you and His angels do too

I thank Allah for creating you and I ask to be with you

The green dome, the mosque and the city mean so much to me because of you…

Ghaus E Azam Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani Alayhi Rahma and a Lion

5 Votes

 

There was a great Saint by the name of Shaykh Ahmad Jaam (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) who used to travel on a lion wherever he went. In every city that he visited it was his habit to ask the people of the city to send one cow for his lion’s meal. One day he travelled to Baghdad, and sent one of his disciples to Hazrat Ghaus E Azam Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani Alayhi Rahma and commanded that a cow be sent to him, as a meal for his lion.

The great Ghaus (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) was already aware of his coming and had already arranged for a cow to be kept for the lion. He sent one of his disciples with the cow to Shaykh Ahmad Jaam (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) and as the disciple took the cow with him, a weak and old stray dog which used to sit outside the home of Hazrat Ghaus E Azam Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani Alayhi Rahma followed him. The disciple presented the cow to Shaikh Ahmad Jaam (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) who signalled to the lion to commence feeding. As the lion ran towards the cow, this weak old dog pounced on the lion. It caught the lion by its throat and killed it by tearing open its stomach.

The dog then dragged the lion and threw it before Hazrat Ghaus E Azam Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani Alayhi Rahma. On seeing this, Shaykh Ahmad Jaam (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) humbled himself before the great Ghaus (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) and asked for forgiveness for his arrogant behaviour. This shows the strength of a weak old dog due to its Nisbath (connection) with the blessed stoop of Hazrat Ghaus E Azam Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani Alayhi Rahma. It also shows that even animals recognize and are loyal to the Awliya Allah.

Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi on the Sufi Masters

3 Votes

 

Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi on the Sufi Masters  :

About Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi Hafizullah Ta’ala :

Born in Damascus on the 13th of Dhul Hijja, 1382 AH (1963 CE), Shaykh Sayyid Muhammad Abul Huda al-Yaqoubi is from a noble family of scholars that descend from the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him). From this household have emerged numerous renowned men of Allah who have taught the sacred sciences for many centuries. Shaykh Muhammad’s father, the light of Damascus and master of the Islamic disciplines, Sayyid Ibrahim al-Yaqoubi, was one of the greatest scholars of The Levant in recent times.

Shaykh Muhammad’s grandfather was a great scholar and Gnostic, Sayyid Ismail al-Yaqoubi; his father’s maternal uncle was Shaykh Arabi al-Yaqoubi and his paternal uncle was the famous Gnostic, Shaykh Sharif al-Yaqoubi. Amongst his blessed ancestors, three have held the Maliki Imamate at the Grand Umayyad Mosque in Damascus – may Allah envelope them all in His mercy.

Shaykh Muhammad traces his lineage back to the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) through the great Mawlay Idris al-Anwar who built the city of Fes, a descendant of Sayyiduna al-Hasan the Second, who is the son of Sayyiduna al-Hasan (may Allah be pleased with him), the grandson of the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) and son of Sayyiduna Ali ibn Abi Talib (may Allah ennoble his countenance).

Proclaiming “Ya Shaykh Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani”

Few amongst the people use to object that to proclaim “Ya Shaykh Abd al-Qadir Jilani” is Shirk because one is making partnership with Allah Ta’ala (committing Shirk) by asking for assistance from the creation of Allah Ta’ala. They say that one can only ask directly from Allah Ta’ala. The Ahle Sunnah wa Jama’at believes that it is absolutely permissible to say “Ya Shaykh Abd al Qaadir Jilani” when asking for assistance from those servants of Allah Ta’ala whom He has appointed as helpers of the Ummah.

سلسلہ نسب و ولادت:

قطب الاقطاب فرد الاحباب استاذ شیوخ ، عالمِ اسلام و المسلمین حضرت محی الدین ابو محمد عبدالقادر الحسنی و الحسینی رضی اللہ عنہ، نجیب الطرفین ہیں۔ والدہ ماجدہ کی طرف سے حسینی اور والد ماجد کی جانب سے حسنی تھے۔ یہ شرافت و بزرگی بہت ہی کم بانصیب لوگوں کو حاصل ہوتی ہے۔ والد ماجد کا نام سید ابو صالح اور والدہ ماجدہ کا اسم گرامی ام الخیر فاطمہ بنت ابو عبداللہ صومعی الحسینی تھا۔ رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہما۔ آپ ایران کے مشہور قصبہ جیل میں یکم رمضان المبارک ٤٧٠ھ کو پیدا ہوئے۔

آپ مادر زاد ولی تھے:

یہ بات نہایت ہی مشہور و معروف ہے کہ سیدنا حضرت غوثِ اعظم رضی اللہ عنہ، ایام رضاعت میں ماہِ رمضان المبارک میں دن کے وقت اپنی والدہ ماجدہ کا دودھ نہیں پیا کرتے تھے۔ یہ بات لوگوں میں پھیل گئی کہ فلاں شریف گھرانے میں ایک ایسا بچہ پیدا ہوا ہے جو رمضان شریف میں دن کے وقت ماں کا دودھ نہیں پیتا۔ اور روزہ سے رہتا ہے۔؛ اس سے ثابت ہوا کہ آپ مادر زاد ولی تھے ۔

ایک دفعہ لوگوں نے پوچھا کہ آپ کو یہ کیسے معلوم ہوا کہ آپ ولی اللہ ہیں؟ فرمایا میں دس برس کا تھا کہ گھر سے مدرسے جاتے وقت دیکھا کہ فرشتے میرے ساتھ چل رہے ہیں۔ پھر مدرسہ میں پہنچنے کے بعد وہ فرشتے دوسرے بچوں سے کہتے کہ ”ولی اللہ ” کیلئے جگہ دو ، فرماتے ہیں کہ ایک دن مجھے ایک ایسا شخص نظر آیا جسے میںنے پہلے کبھی نہیں دیکھا تھا اس نے ایک فرشتہ سے پوچھا کہ یہ کون لڑکا ہے ؟ جس کی اتنی عزت کرتے ہو؟ اس فرشتہ نے جواب دیا کہ یہ ولی اللہ ہے جو بڑے مرتبے کا مالک ہوگا۔ راہِ طریقت میں یہ وہ شخصیت ہے جسے بغیر روک ٹوک کے نعمتیں دی جارہی ہیں اور بغیر کسی حجاب کے تمکین و قرار عنایت ہو رہا ہے ۔ اور بغیر کسی حجت کے تقربِ الٰہی مل رہا ہے۔ الغرض چالیس سال کی عمر میں میں نے پہچان لیا کہ وہ پوچھنے والا شخص اپنے وقت کا ابدال تھا۔

آپ کا حلیہ شریف:

آپ نحیف البدن ، میانہ قد، کشادہ سینہ لمبی چوڑی داڑھی، گندمی رنگ، ابرو پیوستہ، بلند آواز تھے۔ آپ علم کامل اور اثر کامل کے حامل تھے۔

آپ کا علم و فضل:

سیدنا غوثِ اعظم رضی اللہ عنہ، علم ظاہری اور باطنی کے ایک متبحر عالم فاضل تھے۔ ایک دن آپ کی مجلس میں ایک قاری نے قرآن کریم کی ایک آیت تلاوت کی۔ آپ نے اس کی تفسیر بیان کرنی شروع کی ۔ پہلے ایک تفسیر پھر دوسری، اور پھر تیسری یہاں تک کہ حاضرین کے علم کے مطابق اس آیک کی گیارہ تفاسیر بیان فرمائیں۔یہاں تک کہ چالیس وجوہ بیان کیں ار ہر معنی اور تفسیر کی علیحدہ علیحدہ تفصیل سے سند اور دلیل اس طرح دی کہ حاضرین دم بخود رہ گئے۔

تمام علمائے عراق بلکہ دنیا کے تمام طلب گارانِ حال و قال کے آپ مرجع و وسیلہ تھے۔ دنیا کے ہر گوشہ سے آپ کے پاس فتوے آیا کرتے تھے جن پر فوراً بغیر مطالعہ کتب اور غور و فکر جواب لکھتے ۔ کسی بڑے سے بڑے حاذق فاضل عالم کو آپ کے جواب کے خلاف لکھنے یا کہنے کی طاقت نہ تھی۔

آپ کی ریاضت و عبادت:

سیدنا غوثِ اعظم رضی اللہ عنہ، کا طریقہئ سلوب بے انتہاء مشکل اور بے نظیر تھا۔ آپ کے کسی ہمعصر شیخ میں اتنی مجال نہ تھی کہ آپ جیسی ریاضت و مجاہدہ میں آپ کی ہمسری کرسکے۔ آپ کا قاعدہ تھا کہ اپنے ہر عضو کو اس کی طاقت کے موافق عبادت میں سپرد کردیا کرتے تھے۔ اور قوتِ قلب کے موافق مجایئ اقداء میں روح و نفس کا ظاہراً و باطناً ذکر کیا کرتے تھے ۔ غائب و حاضر دونوں حالتوں میں نفس کی صفات کو علیحدہ کرکے نفع و نقصان اور دور ونزدیک کا فرق مٹادیا کرتے ۔ کتاب و سنت کی پیروی میں مطابقت ایسی تھی کہ آپ ہر حالت میں ہر وقت اللہ تعالیٰ کا ذکر کرتے اور حضور قلب کے ساتھ توحید الٰہی میں مشغول رہتے۔

آپ کے اخلاقِ کریمہ:

سیدنا حضرت شیخ عبدالقادر جیلانی رضی اللہ عنہ، نہایت پاکیزہ اور خوش اخلاق تھے۔ آپ اپنی طاہری شان و شوکت اور وسیع علم کے بوجود کمزوروں اور ضعیفوں میں بیٹھتے ۔ فقیروں سے عاجزی کے ساتھ پیش آتے ۔ بڑوں کی عزت کرے اور چھوٹوں پر شفقت و مہربانی فرماتے ۔ سلام کرنے میں پہل کرتے اور مہمانوں اور طالب علموں کی مجلسوں میں نشست کرتے اور ان کی لغزشوں سے درگزر کرتے جو کوئی آپ کے سامنے کتنی ہی جھوتی قسم کیوں نہ کھاتا آپ اس کا یقین کرلیتے اور اپنے علم و کشف کو اس پر ظاہر نہ فرماتے۔ اپنے مہمانوں اور ہم نشستوں کے ساتھ دوسروں کی بہ نسبت بہت خوش خلقی اور کشادہ روئی سے پیش آتے ۔ سرکشوں ۔ ظالموں ۔ مال داروں اور فاسقوں اور اللہ تعالیٰ کے نافرمانوں کی تعظیم کے لئے کھڑے نہ ہوتے۔ کسی امیر و وزیر کے گھر نہ جاتے ۔ آپ کے کسی ہم عصر مشائخ کو آپ جیسا حسن خلق ۔ کشادہ سینہ ، کرمِ نفس حفاظت و امانت میں برابری کی قوت و طاقت نہ تھی۔

آپ کی مریدوں پر شفقت:

مشائخین کی ایک جماعت کا بیان ہے کہ حضور غوث اعظم رضی اللہ عنہ، نے فرمایا کہ قیامت تک میں اپنے تمام مریدوں کا ضامن ہوں کہ ان کی موت توبہ پر واقع ہوگی۔ یعنی بغیر توبہ نہ مریں گے۔ چند مشائخ نے حضور سے پوچھا کہ اگر کوئی شخص آپ کے ہاتھ پر بیعت نہ کرے اور نہ ہی آپ کے ہاتھ سے خرقہ پہنا ہو ، بلکہ صرف آپ کا ارادتمند ہو اور آپ کی طرف اپنے کو منسوب کرتا ہو تو کیا اسیے شخص کو آپ کے اصحاب میں شمار کیا جاسکتا ہے؟ اور آیا ایسا شخص ان فضیلتوں میں شریک ہوگا جو آپ کے مریدوں کو حاصل ہوگی؟ حضور غوث اعظم رضی اللہ عنہ، نے فرمایا کہ جس شخص نے اپنے آپ کو میری طرف منسوب کیا اور مجھ سے ارادت و عقیدت رکھی تو اللہ تعالیٰ اس کو قبول کرے گا۔ اس پر اپنی رحمتیں نازل کرے گا اور اس کو توبہ کی توفیق دے گا اگرچہ اس کے طریق مکروہ ہوں۔ اور ایسے شخص کا شمار میرے مریدوں اور اصحاب میں ہے ۔ اللہ تعالیٰ نے اپنے فضل و کرم کے صدقہ وعدہ کیا ہے کہ میرے دوستوں ، میرے اہلِ مذہب، میرے راہ پر چلنے والے ،میرے مریدوں ار مجھ سے محبت کرنے والے کو جنت مرحمت فرمائے گا۔

آپ کے تعلیم کردہ نوافل:

آپ رضی اللہ عنہ، فرماتے ہیں کہ جو کسی تکہلیف میںمجھ سے امداد چاہے یا مجھے آواز دے اور پکارے اس کی تکلیف دور کی جائے گی ، جو کوئی میرے وسیلہ سے اللہ تعالیٰ سے مانگے اس کی ضرورت پوری کی جائے گی۔ اور جو کوئی دو رکعت نماز اس طرح پڑھے کہ ہر رکعت میں سورہئ فاتحہ کے بعد گیارہ مرتبہ سورہئ اخلاص پڑھے اور پھر سرور عالم ا پر درود شریف پڑھے اس طرح دونوں رکعتیں ختم کرکے سلام پھیرنے کے بعد درود شریف پڑھے ۔ اور عراق کی جانب گیارہ قدم چلے اور میرا نام لے کر اپنی مراد اللہ تعالیٰ سے مانگے تو اللہ تعالیٰ اس کی مراد اپنے فضل و کرم سے پوری کرے گا۔

عداوت غوث کا انجام:

جو شخص حضرت پیر دستگیر غوث اعظم رضی اللہ عنہ، سے تھوڑی سی بھی عداوت رکھے گا یا ان کی ادنیٰ سی بھی بے ادبی کرے گا تو دنیا میں ذلیل و رسوا ہوگا۔ اور ذلت کی موت مرے گا۔

ایک مرتبہ آپ کا خادم ابو الفضل بزاز کے پاس گیا اور کہا کہ مجھے وہ کپڑا درکار ہے جو ایک اشرفی فی گز ہو کم نہ ہو۔

بزاز نے پوچھا ، کس کے لئے خریدتے ہو؟

خادم نے جواب دیا کہ اپنے آقا سیدنا حضرت شیخ عبدالقادر جیلانی رضی اللہ عنہ، کیلئے درکار ہے۔

یہ سن کربزاز کے دل میں آیا کہ شیخ نے بادشاہ وقت کے لئے بھی کپڑا نہیں چھوڑا۔ اور بزاز کے دل میں ابھی یہ خیال پورا ہی نہیں ہوا تھا کہ غیب سے اس کے پاؤں میں ایک کیل چبھی ار ایسی چبھی کہ مرنے کے قریب ہو گیا۔ لوگوں نے پاؤں سے کیل نکالنے کی بہت کوشش کی لیکن مطلب براری نہ ہوسکی۔ آخر کار لوگ بزاز کو اٹھا کر حضرت غوثِ پاک رضی اللہ عنہ، کے پاس لے گئے۔ آپ نے اسے دیکھ کر فرمایا،

”اے ابو الفضل! تم نے اپنے دل میں ہم پر اعتراض کیوں کیا ۔ فرمایا مجھے اپنے معبود کی عزت کی قسم کہ اللہ جل شانہ، نے حکم دیا کہ اے عبدالقادر وہ کپڑا پہنو جس کی قیمت فی گز ایک اشرفی ہو”

مزید فرمایا کہ ابو الفضل! یہ کپڑا میت کا کفن ہے ۔ اور میت کا کفن عمدہ اور نفیس ہونا چاہئے جو ہزار موت کے بعد نسیب ہوتا ہے۔ پھر آپ نے اپنا دست اقدس ابوالفضل کی تکلیف کے مقام پر رکھا ۔ آپ کے ہاتھ رکھتے ہی تکلیف اس طرح جاتی رہی گویا بالکل تھی ہی نہیں ۔ پھر اس کے بعد فرمایا ۔ ابو الفض کا اعتراض ہمارے پاس پہنچا اور کیل کی صورت میں اسکے پاس لوٹ کر جو کچھ چاہا کیا۔

حضرت غوثِ اعظم رضی اللہ عنہ، کا وعظ و نصیحت:

آپ کی مجلس وعظ میں چار سو اشخاص قلم دوات لئے آپ کی نصیحتیں قلمبند کرتے رہتے تھے۔ آپ نے فرمایا کہ ابتدائی زمانہ میں سرورِ عالم ا اور سیدنا حضرت مولا علی المرتضیٰ کرم اللہ وجہہ الکریم کو میں نے خواب میں دیکھا جنہوں نے مجھے وعظ کرنے کا حکم دیا اور میرے منہ میں اپنا لعاب دہن ٹپکایا اور مجھ پر ابواب سخن کھول دیے۔

حاضرینِ وعظ:

ایک شیخ کا بیان ہے کہ حضرت غوث اعظم رضی اللہ عنہ، جب وعظ کرنے کیلئے منبر پر بیٹھتے تو پہلے الحمد اللہ کہتے تاکہ اللہ تعالیٰ کا ہر ولی جو غائب ہو یا حاضر خاموش ہوجائے۔ اور پھر دوسری مرتبہ الحمد للہ کہتے اور دونوں کے درمیان تھوڑی دیر کیلئے سکوت فرماتے اس عرصہ میں فرشتے اور تمام اولیاء اللہ آپ کی مجلس میں حاضر ہوجاتے ۔ جتنے لوگ آپ کی مجلس میں دکھائی دیتے اس سے زیادہ نظر نہ آنے والے جنات ہوتے۔

آپ کے ہم عصر ایک شیخ کا بیان ہے کہ میںنے اپنی عادت کے موافق جنات کی حاضری کے لئے عزیمت پڑھی لیکن کوئی جن حاضر نہ ہوا ۔ میں بہت دیر تک عزیمت پڑھتا رہا ۔ پھر حیران ہوا کہ جنات کی حاضری کیوں نہیں ہورہی ہے؟ ان کے نہ آنے کا سبب کیا ہے؟ تھوڑی دیر بعد کچھ جن حاضر ہوئے تو میں نے ان سے دیر سے آنے کی وجہ پوچھی تو انہوں نے کہا کہ حضرت شیخ عبدالقادر جیلانی رضی اللہ عنہ، وعظ فرمارہے تھے ار ہم سب جنات وہاں حاضر تھے۔ آپ آئیندہ ہم کو اس وقت طلب کریں جب کہ شیخ عبدالقادر جیلانی رضی اللہ عنہ، وعظ نہ فرمارہے ہوں ورنہ ہماری حاضری میں تاخیر ہوگی۔ میں نے پوچھا کیاتم لوگ حضرت شیخ کی مجلس میں وعظ مں حاضر ہوتے ہو؟ اس پر جنات نے نے جواب دیا کہ شیخ کی مجلس میں انسانوں کی نسبت ہماری تعداد بہت زیادہ ہے۔ ہم جنات سے اکثر قبائل حضرت شیخ کے ہاتھ پر اسلام لائے ہیں اور توبہ و استغفار میںمشغول ہیں۔ آپ رضی اللہ عنہ، کی مجلس وعظ میں اولیائے عظام اور انبیائے کرام علیہم الصلوٰۃ والسلام بھی شریک ہوتے ہیں ار خود محبوب رب العالمین ا بھی تربیت و تائید کیلئے تشریف لایا کرتے تھے۔ اور سیدنا حضرت خضر علیہ السلام بھی شریک ہوتے۔

مواعظ کا اثر:

آپ کا وعظ بڑا پر تاثیر ہوتا تھا۔ حاضرین مجلس مضطرب اور بے چین ہوجاتے اور ان پر وجد و حال کی کیفیت طاری ہو جاتی ۔ کوئی گریہ و فریاد کرتا۔ کوئی اپنے کپڑے پھاڑ کر جنگل کی طرف بھاگ جاتا۔ کوئی بے ہوش ہو کر جان دے دیتا ۔ آپ کی مجلس وعظ سے اکثر لوگوں کے جنازے نکلتے۔ جس کا سبب یہ تھا کہ وہ آپ کے ذوق و شوق، ہیبت و تصرف ، عظمت و جلال کی تاب نہ لاسکتے اور دم توڑ دیتے تھے۔ پانچ سو سے زیادہ یہودی اور عیسائی لوگوں نے اسلام قبول کیا۔ اور ایک لاکھ سے زیادہ ڈاکوؤں اور بدمعاشوں نے آپ کے ہاتھ پر توبہ کرکے بدکرداریوں سے باز آئے۔ اس کے علاوہ عام مخلوق کی فیض یابی کی تعداد بے انتہا ار بے شمار ہے۔

آپ کا وصال مبارک:

آپ نے نوے (٩٠) سال کی عمر میں بتاریخ ١١ ربیع الآخر ٥٦١ھ مطابق ١١٨٢ء میں داعی اجل کو لبیک کہا۔ نماز جنازہ میں بے شمار لوگ حاضر ہوئے۔ کثرتِ ہجوم کے باعث رات کے وقت آپ کے مدرسہ میں سائبان کے نیچے آپ کا جسم اقدس سپردِ خاک کیا گیا۔ بغداد شریف میں آپ کا مزار مبارک مرجع خلائق ہے۔

Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi Praises Ghaus E Azam

4 Votes

 

Take the drink of love
It is indeed your medicine and cure
And walk the way to be nearer
To the people of this quarter
Be absent from all the universe
And fold remoteness in distance
Protect this secret from all
Save the people of this quarter
Negate the other oh man
And annihilate to all forms
Witness the transparency of the wine
You will then enter this quarter.

Our words are divine gifts
Our silence is merely a cover
Our door is open for anyone
Who is heading to this quarter
Our tastes are delicacies
Our secrets are of the essence
Our moves when we shake
May wake the dead of this quarter
The Lord made us stand
At His Door for a year
He then said
Who’s more entitled other than you to this quarter
When we entered the house
And the cup went around
And all worries were removed
No one of us remained alive
Indeed all other than Him
Are perishing no doubt
There is not anyone there but Allah
Loved by the people of this quarter
Witness His Unity
In the unity of the existence
And do not see existent beings other than Him
But a shadow.

In the Hadith of the Shadow
There is indeed a secret that should not be averted
By Allah I swear
Nothing alongside Allah will ever last
See His Unity with no incarnation
And stand by at the remains
Act upon what I have said
To witness the beauty of the All-Living
And in the stand of separation
He will let you remain after annihilation
As East is not like the west,
As the dead is not like the living
This is the reality of Tawhid
The only unique meaning of it
There is no way but to grasp it
If you are heading to this quarter.
