SUFI TARIKAT WAYS ARE THE WAYS OF BAPTISM OF ALLAH.
BISMILLAHIR RAHMANIR RAHEEM 2:2. This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah;
4:59. O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to QURAN SAYING IN SURA ALBAKARA VERSE 2 THAT IT IS GUIDANCE FOR ONLY PIOUS SERVANTS. AND ADVISING PEOPLE TO SEEK GUIDANCE FROM PIOUS SERVANTS IN VERSE 59 IN CHAPTER 4. DO NOT GO TO QURAN DIRECTLY AS IT GUIDES ONLY PIOUS ONE. THE ONE WHO ARE UP ON THE SPIRITUAL LINEAGE AND SUCCESSION OF PROPHET. THE PROOF FOR THIS INTERPRETATION IS THE MANY (72) DEVIANT SECTS IN ISLAM. 2: 138. [Our religion is] the Baptism of Allah: And who can baptize better than Allah? And it is He Whom we worship. IN THIS VERSE ALLAH SAYS THAT ISLAM IS BAPTISM OF ALLAH. AND ALLAH NEVER CAME TO ANYONE DIRECTLY SINCE THE TIME OF CREATION BEGAN. ALLAH DOES THROUGH HIS PROPHETS AND THEIR SUCCESSORS.
Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination.
ALLAH DID NOT SAY OBEY HIM ALONE, AS NOBODY CAN OBEY ALLAH ALONE. WE CAN OBEY ALLAH THROUGH THOSE WHO KNOW ALLAH AND OBEY ALLAH. DO WE REALLY KNOW ALLAH BEFORE?, NO, SOMEONE TAUGHT US ABOUT ALLAH AND THE CHAIN AUTHORITY OF TEACHERS TEACH COMING GENERATIONS ABOUT AT ALLAH. SO ALLAH SAID TO OBEY HIS MESSENGER. THAT IS TO FOLLOW QURAN AND SUNNAH. AGAIN ALLAH SAID, OBEY THOSE WHO ARE IN AUTHORITY AMONGST YOU. “THOSE WHO ARE IN AUTHORITY” ARE THOSE WHO HAVE GIVEN KNOWLEDGE AND AUTHORITY BY ALLAH AND HIS MESSENGER. INDEED THEY ARE “AWLIYA ALLAH” FRIENDS OF ALLAH. THOSE WHO GOT SPIRITUAL LINEAGE AND AUTHORIZATION FROM PROPHET AND THEIR SUCCESSORS IN A WELL KNOWN UNBROKEN CHAIN OF MASTERS. THEY ARE NOT JUST BOOK SCHOLARS, IF THEY ARE BOOK SCHOLARS, THEN WE SHOULD HAVE TO ACCEPT ALL DEVIANTS SECTS AS ALL OF THAT SECTS HAVE SO MANY SCHOLARS LEARNT QURAN AND HADITHS WELL. ALSO IF THIS “ULOOL AMRU” WHERE JUST SCHOLARS, THEN PROPHET WOULD NOT HAVE TO SAY THAT MY UMMAH WILL SPLIT INTO 73 SECTS, ONE OF THEM WILL ENTER IN PARADISE, REST OF THEM WILL GO TO HELL!.
10:62 Behold! Verily on the Friends of Allah there will be no fear, nor will they grieve. (They are) those who accept Imaan and adopt Taqwaa. (10:62-63) HERE,ALLAH SAYING THAT THE TRUE MASTERS, FRIENDS OF ALLAH (AWLYA ALLAH), THEY ONLY FEAR ALLAH, SO THEY HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR ABOUT THE CREATIONS OF ALLAH. THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE TO FEAR HELL,GRAVE,JUDGEMENT DAY,DEATH OR RESURRECTION. AS THIS ALL CREATIONS OF ALLAH, ALLAH HAS REMOVED THE FEAR OF CREATIONS FROM THEIR HEART!.
17: 80. Say: “O my Lord! Let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honour, and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honour; and grant me from Thy Presence an authority to aid [me].”
The aiding here is baptizing or purification with the tawheed and taking to entrance of Truth (Sidq-Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam) AL Ameen As-Sadiq (alaihiswalathu wa salam)To Al Aman-Safety and Guidance (Hidaya)-that is baptism of ALLAH
ALLAH COMMANDING US TO PRAY TO MAKE OUR LIFE IN SIDQ (TRUTH-MUHAMMADIYATH). AND ONLY MUHAMMADIYATH (SIDQ) TAKE US TO “TRUTH-HAQQ (ALLAH). AND TO LEADS TO SIDQ (MUHAMMAD) ONE MUST FOLLOW SIDDIQ (RIGHTEOUS ONES). THEY ARE “ULOOL AMRU”. THE BEST AMONG ULOOL AMRU IS ABU BAKAR SIDDIQ (FIRST CALIPH AND COMPANION OF PROPHET). AND THEY PRAYER END WITH ASKING TO SEND A HELPER, WHO AID US TO THE TRUTH BY KNOWLEDGE AND GUIDANCE. SO FROM QURAN ITSELF IT IS CLEAR THAT A HELPER IS REQUIRED TO REACH IN MUHAMMADIYATH (SIDQ) AND THEN TO HAQQ (ALLAH).
Hadiths: On the authority of Tamim Al-Dari that the prophet said:
p “Religion is sincerity”. We said: “To whom?” He said: “To Allah and His Book, and His messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk”.
p narrated by Muslim
RELIGION IS SINCERITY TO THE MUSLIM LEADERS (AHLU BAYTH AND ULOOL AMRU) AND THEIR COMMON FOLK. On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said: the messenger of Allah said:
p Allah the Almighty has said: “Who soever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, I shall be at war with him. My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have imposed upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, 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 ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it.”
p related by Bukhari.
ALLAH IS NOT JUST PUNISHING THOSE WHO OPPOSE HIS WALI. BUT DECLARING WAR ON THEM!!!. WHY ALLAH SHOULD BE THIS MUCH ANGRY TO THOSE WHO ARE AGAINST HIS WALI? IN 40 HADITH’S 39 SAYING:HADITH 39 IT SAYS: On the authority of Ibn Abbas that the messenger of Allah said: p “Allah has pardoned for me my people for [their] mistakes and [their] forgetfulness and for what they have done under duress.” p a fine hadith related by Ibn Majah,Al-Baihqi, and others.
PROPHET SAYS IN THIS HADITH QUDUSI, THAT ALLAH HAS FORGIVEN THE MISTAKES OF MUSLIMS. BUT ALLAH REALLY DECLARE WAR ON THOSE WHO OPPOSE HIS WALI. SO IT IS CLEAR THAT AWLIYA ALLAH ARE KNOWN AND PEOPLE DISAGREE AND KEEP ENMITY TO THEM JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE ARROGANT AND FOLLOWING FILTH SECTS AND SCHOLARS!. SO ALLAH DECLARING WAR ON THOSE, OTHER WISE AS THE 39TH HADITH SAYING, ALLAH WOULD HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN THOSE WHO OPPOSE HIS WALI.
So follow them and obey them and be Baptized by Ulool Amru (Awliya Allah) those who are charged with authority amongst you.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BAPTISM OF BAYAT TO AWLIYA ALLAH THROUGH THE WELL KNOWN TARIKATS (SUFI ORDERS): ALI IBN ABI TAALIB RADIYLLAHU ANHU ON BAPTISM(TO FOLLOW A SHAIKH):
THOSE WHO UNDERSTAND ISLAM,BAPTISM OF ALLAH AND QURAN AS WHOLE SAYING:
Hazret Ali Ibn Abi Talib (radiyallahu Anhu) on Importance of Following a True ***Spiritual Guide***: Hazret Ali Ibn Abi Taalib (Radiyallahu Anhu) saying :
أذا المرء ربّي نفسه بمراده لقد شاد بنيانا علي غير أسّه “
ومن لم تربّيه الرجال وتسقه لبانا لهم قد درّ من ثدى قدسه
فذاك لقيط ماله نسبة الولا ولن يتعدّى غير ابناء جنسه
(30 قلا دة الجواهر )
“When someone make tarbiyyath himself without a Shaykh, it is like he constructing a building without the foundation!,Those who do not have tarbiyath of shyakhs will not get the flow spiritual wisdom coming from Allah through the Shaykhs (awliya ALLAH),thus he will not reach in lofty stations of faith. He will be like illegitimate children who got someone to be called as a father!”
(Qalaidul Jawahir 30)
“من يذكر الله تعالي بلا شيخ لا الله حصل له ولا نبيه ولا شيخه “
“Whoever do Zikr without a Shaykh of Tharbiyyath ;as well as he has no Shaykh,he will not get Allah and he will not get Allah’s Beloved Rasool (alaihiswalathu wa salam)”Khala’itdul Jawahir:182
4:59. O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination.
When there is a argument between you and those who are charged with authority amongst you(Awliya Allah), refer to Allah and His Messenger.You are not allowed to debate with successors of Prophet. The above verse is enough proof that the Messenger of Allah is alive in his grave.
SO DO NOT ABUSE AND JUDGE AWLIYA ALLAH AND THEIR DECSIONS, IF YOU DISAGREE WITH THEM IN ANY MATTER, REFER IT TO ALLAH AND HIS MESSENGER. ALLAH SAYS, IT IS BEST FOR YOU. YOU DO NOT NEED TO TURN AGAINST A WALI OF ALLAH FOR SOME ERRORS OCCURED IN THEIR ACTIONS OR SPEECH. AS THE HADITH 39 IN IMAM NAWAWI’S 40 HADITH, IT SAYS ALLAH HAS FORGIVEN FOR MISTAKES COMMITTED UNDER FORGETFULNESS,IGNORANCE OR DURESS. THIS IS THE REASON ALL IMAMS OF AHLU SUNNA WAL JAMAH WERE MADHAB FOLLOWING SUFIS: AND THEY BECOME HIGH RANKED AND HONORED
