Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.
|A Sufi does not Sit with Golden Water dispenser |
and patched cloth at the same time!, The life of a real Sufi
Will be consistent with his surroundings
So many lies been added to many Sufi orders by some of it's followers! Unless you follow correct Tariqa and correct Shaykh, you too will be doomed with such lies and foolishness!
Such Tariqa beliefs became very popular in the most vulnerable parts of Asia and Africa!, just as such belies in other religions became popular in the vulnerable areas of Asia and Africa.
Such lies were necessary to spread and survive the existence of such Tariqas! among those religions who have such lies and Myths in it, but Islam does not support lies, nor Islamic Spirituality Support lies!
Islamic Spirituality is to Purify the Self from All lies (illusions, delusions ,imaginations and pretending) of the heart!
Ameerul Mumineen Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (A.S) is the Head and Seal of All Saints (Awliya Allah) , Imam Hassan (R.A) and Imam Hussain (R.A) shares that seal with equal authority and power, which is directly granted from Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam.
If anyone tells you Sulthanul Awliya Shaykh Muhyiddin Abdul Qadir Al Jilani (Q.S) or Shaykh Ahmed or any other saints as head of all Saints, then they are lying!
Some Shaykhs have uttered some words in the utmost spiritual annihilation (Fana Fillah) , for Example Shaykh Mansoor Al Hallaj (Q.S) who in the divine Presence disappeared and sacrificed himself and the divine voice manifested in his tongue and said: "I am the Truth (Ana Al Haqq), but a true believer do not take Mansoor Al Hallaj as his God!,neither Jesus Christ (A.S) as his God!, nor anyone else as his god except the unborn and never begotten Almighty God!
Never we see in any holy books from Adam (A.S) until last day: Isa Ibn Maryam (A.S) is God or Al Hallaj (R.A) is God!
It is their spiritual annihilation (Fana Fillah) that their experience of Fana in the divine Will through their Submission in Complete Sacrifice!
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَة رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُول اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه و سلم إنَّ اللَّهَ تَعَالَى قَالَ: "مَنْ عَادَى لِي وَلِيًّا فَقْد آذَنْتهُ بِالْحَرْبِ، وَمَا تَقَرَّبَ إلَيَّ عَبْدِي بِشَيْءٍ أَحَبَّ إلَيَّ مِمَّا افْتَرَضْتُهُ عَلَيْهِ، وَلَا يَزَالُ عَبْدِي يَتَقَرَّبُ إلَيَّ بِالنَّوَافِلِ حَتَّى أُحِبَّهُ، فَإِذَا أَحْبَبْتُهُ كُنْت سَمْعَهُ الَّذِي يَسْمَعُ بِهِ، وَبَصَرَهُ الَّذِي يُبْصِرُ بِهِ، وَيَدَهُ الَّتِي يَبْطِشُ بِهَا، وَرِجْلَهُ الَّتِي يَمْشِي بِهَا، وَلَئِنْ سَأَلَنِي لَأُعْطِيَنَّهُ، وَلَئِنْ اسْتَعَاذَنِي لَأُعِيذَنَّهُ".
رَوَاهُ الْبُخَارِيُّ [رقم:6502].
رَوَاهُ الْبُخَارِيُّ [رقم:6502].
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Verily Allah ta’ala has said: ‘Whosoever shows enmity to a wali (friend) of Mine, then I have declared war against him. And My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved to Me than the religious duties I have obligated upon him. And My servant continues to draw near to me with nafil (supererogatory) deeds until I Love him. When I Love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, and his sight with which he sees, and his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him; and were he to seek refuge with Me, I would surely grant him refuge.’ ” It was related by al-Bukhari. (40 Hadith, Imam Nawawi R.A)
So if anyone take Jesus (a.s) as God or Hallaj (R.A) as go, they will lose the Path and they will not attain the high faith and spirituality!
Or if someone claims this one is head of saints or that one is head and seal of saints, they also don't reach such lofty stations of faith!
All they can do is, they will only enjoy reading and entertaining this stories like a comic book, no more that!
Just as so many people worshiping many demi-gods reading myths and epics about their miracles and powers , but none of the followers of such demi-gods never attained a high spirituality or high ranks of faith!
So read and study what is concerned for you!. If you take such stories to spread your tariqah, then you will lose and will not do any good to the seeker!
So as a Seeker, your duty is to follow the Spirituality of Shaykhs according to Quran and Sunnah and according to the methods of your Shaykh, not to listen to fairy tales told by some people!. Sufism is to clean up your own fairy tales!, so whoever comes with fairy tales, they are adding more tales to your life, rather than liberating your soul from this stories and tales!
