634-SUFI-ISM (MYSTICISM)

SUFI-ISM (MYSTICISM)

Rang-o-Noor (BY SA'DI)

(Shumara: 634)

Allah's Final prophet Hazrat Muhammadﷺsent Hazrat Ali to Yemen. The people of Yemen had embraced Islam. Hazrat Ali said, "O Messenger of Allah, I am the youngest youth. You are sending me to a people who will have mutual disputes i.e. I do not have the capacity to settle their disputes and decide their cases." At this, the Holy Prophetﷺ gave the glad tidings, "ان اللّٰہ سیھدی قلبک ویثبت لسانک Allah will keep your heart and tongue guided and steadfast." Hazrat Ali says, "I never faced any doubt or tension in making a decision after that."( Abu Dawood, Al-Tirmizi, Ibn Maajah). It becomes known that the man whose heart and tongue are corrected succeed everywhere.
A sect of the Muslim Ummah made the correction of the heart and the tongue their topic, put in hard labour, fixed syllabi for it, underwent great stress and strain and pondering over the Holy Quran and the Sunnah, devised a system of observance attaching this system with holy company. In this way, a new system of learning and chain came into being in the name of Sufi-ism and spiritualism. Heart may be purified of every filth; Self may be purified of every mischief and every wickedness; intention may be purified of every pretension and vice, man's heart may be attached with Allah; light and resplendence may be produced in man's heart; man may become solely for Allah away from his personal interests; man's sole attention may be directed towards Allah and he may have no other object and target; he may have no real Lord save Allah; he may find himself before Allah and worship Allah without any selfish motives; he may serve Him as His slave making His objectives his own intention and may be resigned to Him burying all his intentions and wishes. This is Islmaic mysticism (Tasawwuf). It has four major schools of thought: (1) Qaadiri (2) Naqshbandi (3) Chishti (4) Suharwardi. Whereas there is one school of thought i.e. Awaisi also. Very few people are blessed with it. As mysticism is an Islamic chain and learning so all its laws have been framed in the light of the Holy Quran, Sunnah and sayings of Sahaabah. The leader of the mystics Hazrat Junaid Baghdaadi says "مذھبنا ھذا مقید بالکتاب والسنۃ فمن لم یقرء القرآن ولم یکتب الحدیث لا یقتدی بہ فی مذھبنا وطریقنا ( البدایۃ والنہایۃ) This path of our mysticism is bound with the Holy Quran and Sunnah. The man who does not recite the Holy Quran nor writes the tradition is not followed in our mysticism."
There is clamour for Sufi-ism all over the world these days. What link do these scenes of fairs, festivals, dancing, singing, music, drugs and immodesty have with Islam? What scope do they have in Islam? A few wild beasts gather to satisfy their lust and sensuality and name it Sufi-ism. Actually, these people want to deviate the Muslims from true Din. May Allah protect the belivers against their wickedness!
Cast a Glance! The Sufis connect the authenticity of their chains with Sahaabah. They call Hazrat Abu Bakr the leader in mysticism(Tasawwuf) because final stage in Tasawwuf is truthfulness. Then starts the stage of Prophethood. No one can be blessed with Prophethood with his own labour. The final stage of progress that man can cover is truthfulness which is a very high stage. Stage of truthfulness is so high that link with it is a great good luck. Haztat Abu Bakr is the leader of the truthful saints. Ascending the pulpit, he would say, "Allah imposes disgrace on the people who give up Jihaad in the way of Allah."
The Pakistanis are witnessing this disgrace well these days. Now the worst people of the nation have become the owners of the Constituent Assembly with the help of their unlawful wealth in recent elections of Senate. What good can such people do to the nation? Let it go. It is a separate topic.
The point I am to clarify is that the ill-omened slogan of Sufi-ism is raised in Pakistan these days to stop the Muslims from Jihaad whereas we witness in true mysticism that the biggest leader of the mystics i.e. leader of the truthful, Hazrat Abu Bkr Siddique is making Jihaad binding on the Muslims. He led all his life in Jihaad. Then in a short period of his caliphate, he deputed the entire Muslim Ummah to Jihaad so much so Maidna was to be vacated completely.
The second leader in Tasawwuf with whom the saints connect their authenticity is Hazrat Ali S/O Abi Talib who is Allah's lion, invincible conqueror and conqueror of Khyber. Then keep studying the life of the saints. The saints with whom the people of Tasawwuf link themselves whether Hazrat Abuzar Ghaffari or Hazrat Abu Hurairah, all waged Jihaad regularly. Hazrat Abu Hurairah was present on the eve of the battle of Yarmook. He addressed the Muslims stressing them to observe steadfastness and bravery. Among the latter people from Hazrat Hasan Basri to Ibrahim bin Adham, you find the highest stages of Tasawwuf as grand achievements of Jihaad. It is written in "Al-Bidaayah Wan-Nihaayah" about the famous leader of Tasawwuf and saint Hazrat Abdullah Al-Yunani that he was known with the title of "Lion of Shaam" as well as skilled in Tasawwuf. Besides Tasawwuf, he was a great Mujaahid. Hafiz Ibn Rajab writes: وکان لا ینقطع عن غزوۃ من الغزوات ولہ احوال و کرامات کثیرۃ جدا. He did not lag behind any battle. He had so many attributes and miracles."
Shelter Against Sedition:- As the Muslims love the religious saints; they are impressed by them and turn to them in their difficulties, the enemies of Islam deviate the Muslims in the guise of saints. The British have established institutions wherein fake saints, mystics and sufis are prepared who are pushed into the Muslims. These agents of the enemy distort beliefs of the Muslims on the one hand and work as spies against the Muslims on the other hand. This is a very pathetic and detailed story. This practice has been going on till now. So many non-Muslim pagans have still been staying among the Muslims in the guise of Muslims who deviate thousands of Muslims daily. We let go this tale because discussion on it causes grief, worry and doubts. Actually, if the Muslim keeps a few points in mind, he can never fall a prey to such seditions. They are: Strong link with Klimah Tayyibah and its recitation in abundance, true love for Salaat, deep link and mad-love for Jihaad in the way of Allah, punctuality in observing obligations, recitations of the Holy Quran and Sunnah supplications. This is a brief syllabus which encompasses everything. Besides this, they should supplicate for protection against seditions after every Salaat as: اَللّٰھُمَّ اِنِّیْ اَعُوْذُ بِکَ مِنَ الْفِتَنِ مَاظَھَرَ مِنْھَا وَمَابَطَنَ اَللّٰھُمَّ اِنِّیْ اَعُوْذُ بِکَ مِنْ فِتْنَۃِ الْمَسِیْحِ الدَّجَّالِ اَللّٰھُمَّ اِنِّیْ اَعُوْذُ بِکَ مِنْ فِتْنَۃِ النِّسَائِ. As most of the major seditions of the time start with women, so every Muslim man and Muslim woman should supplicate for protection against seditions. Our Muslim sisters should not think that the said supplication is against them. In the same way, make arrangements for Surah Al-Kahaf on Friday and fortify your Friday. If Friday is fortified, seditions run away. In short, a satanic sedition in the name of Sufi-ism is being introduced in the Muslims these days. The believers should be aware of it.
Before Criticism:- Reading this column, our Sufi brothers will certainly be worried. A few of them will write letters, "What is the link of Tasawwuf and Sufi-Ism with Islam?" Our Sufi Brothers follow their present day scholars wildly. That's why; they fall a prey to such misgivings. If they study the books written by their ancestors like Sheikh-ul-Islam Ibn Taimmiyah and Allamah Ibn Qayyim, they will observe that these people believed in Islamic Tasawwuf so we should study them the very today and avoid blind faith.
A Gift in the End:- One of the treasures of the Paradise is لَاحَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّۃَ اِلَّا بِاللّٰہِ وَلَا مَلْجَأَ وَلاَ مَنْجَأَ مِنَ اللّٰہِ اِلَّا اِلَیْہِ ( مسند احمد). There is no might and power except from Allah. Only Allah can protect from Allah's punishment. Allah Himself is shelter against His punishment. This Sunnah supplication is an elixir for protection against sins, end of worries, fulfilment of needs and protection against troubles. لَاحَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّۃَ اِلَّا بِاللّٰہِ وَلَا مَلْجَأَ وَلاَ مَنْجَأَ مِنَ اللّٰہِ اِلَّا اِلَیْہِ

لا الہ الا اللّٰہ، لا الہ الا اللّٰہ ،لا الہ الا اللّٰہ محمد رسول اللّٰہ

اللہم صل علی سیدنا محمد والہ وصحبہ وبارک وسلم تسلیما کثیرا کثیرا

لا الہ الا اللّٰہ محمد رسول اللّٰہ
