"The friends of Allah will have no fear nor shall they grieve" {10:64}

 

Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) due to His great mercy sent the Prophets ('alaihimus salaam) to various nations and communities successively for the guidance of the mankind to the Divine Path, to worship none other than one Allah, and not to associate any partners with Him. The foremost and the most important of the duties of man are to reform the human moral, and refinement and perfection of human-beings. Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) sent the final Prophet, Muhammad (sallallahu'alaihi wasallam) with all the excellence and noble qualities, who had been sent as a mercy and a gift to all mankind. He carried the Risaalat of Prophethood and conveyed the message of Allah in its perfect form - extracting from the Qur'an and the Sunnah the knowledge of Tawhid, Ma'arifat-e-Ilahi, Aman (conveying peace and harmony), and Islah, which he taught his companions, the Sahaba (radiAllahu'anhum), prepering them for the Big Mission.

 

The Prophet (sallallahu'alaihi wasallam) conveyed his message to the mankind with the greatest of affection and clarity. The illustrious Sahaba (radiAllahu'anhum) followed the divine teachings of the Prophet (sallallahu'alaihi wasallam) with utter love, devotion, and perfection, who in term were followed by their students - the Taba'in; and then their students - the Taba-Taba'in.

 

Following in the footsteps of the Prophet of Allah (sallallahu'alaihi wasallam) and the examples of these three great generations is the hierarchy of Saints (Awliya Allah) at all times in the world, through whom Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) manifests His mercy in the world of humanity. In the absence of the Prophet (sallallahu'alaihi wasallam) they are the vicegerents of Allah on earth on his behalf. It is they who radiate a faith in life everlasting which in its turn takes away the sting from the death and enables us, average people, to view life with a sense of ease. The Awliya (Saints) attain to a perfect certainty about existence and Unity of Allah and there by act as the vicegerents of the Holy Prophet (sallallahu'alaihi wasallam). It is to these people the Holy Prophet (sallallahu'alaihi wasallam) refers in his oft-quoted saying:

"The learned are the successors of the Prophets." [At-Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, An-Nasai', Ibn Majah, Ibn Hibban]

 

It is an established fact that there will be no new prophet after the last of the Apostles, Muhammad (sallallahu'alaihi wasallam). In order to protect this pure religion until the time of Qiyamah, Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) has - as promised - has sent several erudite and pious bondsmen - the Awliya Allah, until this present day to carry out the mission of Allah and will be sending through to the time of Qiyamah to strive against the evil, blasphemy, lies, tyranny, innovations, deviations, hypocrisy, and revive the religion for the Muslim nation. They will be sent to remove all innovations and deviations that will have crept into it. These pure souls, the Awliya, arrive at the turn of every century. Sometimes, many came at the same time, in various regions.

 

In this present day and era, like all times, there are also many Awlia Allah who are staunchly and uncompromisingly carrying out their duties with their life and possessions doing the Islah of the Muslims, as the deputies of the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam).

 

Amongst them from the United Kingdom is Hadhrat Shaikh Yusuf Ahmed Naqshbandi Mujaddedi DB, who is the Khalifah of the Late esteemed Hadhrat Shaikh Ismaeel Wadee Sahab (rahmatullahi'alaihi). He not only is acquainted with the knowledge of the Shari'ah but in the line of Tariqat is also a veteran. Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) has graciously granted Hadhrat Shaikh Yusuf Ahmed with an immense  knowledge and experince in the science of Tasawwuf, especially on the inticracies of the nafs and its reformation. The Shaikh is upon the Tariqat (path) of the Naqshbandiya Mujaddidya order, staunchly following the original classical Naqshbandi Tariqat. He disagrees with the today's ways of how Tasawwuf is being practiced, as most Shaikhs of Tasawwuf are not carrying out their duties in the reformation of the nafs of their mureeds (disciples/seekers) and do not either correct or admonish the mureed when wrongs or mistakes are committed; but instead prescribing them with the dhikr and then granting Khilafah.

 

 

The Malfoozat of Hadhrat Shaikh Yusuf Ahmed DB 

 

* The Madaaris, Dar-ul-Uloom, of today are empty of Tarbiyat. The students are only being taught the Ilm, then granted the qualifications, 

and are leaving without having their inner deeds rectified.

 

* It is vitally important that the Tarbiyat be established in Dar-ul-Uloom.

 

* Dar-ul-Uloom is for those whose aims and desires are for Akhirat, and not for those whose intentions are for the gains and greediness of the dunya.

 

* What is tasawwuf? When one learns the knowledge of the Qur'an and the Hadeeth that Ilm is Ijmali; developing this Ilm to Tafsili is what is known as Tasawwuf, meaning - it becomes Haqqul Yaqeen. 

 

* It is not necessary for everyone to become an 'Aalim (scholar). Those who will have the capacity and zeal, along with willingness, should be encouraged to study to become an 'Aalim. Some believe that only studying is important but do not give importance and pay heed to Tarbiyat.

 

* Nowadays, attention is paid more on building the quantity of the mureed (desciples), and pay no heed on building the quality of the mureed.

 

* I admonish the students and the 'Ulema not to be proud of the knowledge that has been learnt and the conveyancing of the knowledge; the reality of its actual benefit (of the knowledge) will appear by keeping to the pious company and service of the Ahlullah (friends of Allah). One should be unswerving in this regard. 

 

* Renounce everything from your heart besides Allah, and Huq-Ta'ala will fill your heart with the Ma'arif and Divine Mysteries.

 

* One should keep oneself safe in this time of Fitna.
