मध्य एशिया में स्थित देशों के नाम के अंत में “स्तान” क्यों हैं!

मध्य एशिया में स्थित देशों के नाम के अंत में “स्तान” क्यों हैं!

मध्य एशिया में स्थित देशों के नाम एक खास पैटर्न पर क्यों रखे गए हैं, मतलब नाम के अंत में “स्तान” है जैसे पाकिस्तान, अफगानिस्तान, तजाकिस्तान इत्यादि?
यह फ़ारसी भाषा और फारसी साम्राज्य की वजह से है।

सबसे पहले देखते हैं की वो कौन से देश हैं जिनका नाम स्तान पर रखा गया है।

हिन्दुस्तान (फ़ारसी नाम है भारत का )

अब एक बार इस मैप में देख लें : यह सब देश ईरान के पास हैं। प्राचीन काल में फ़ारसी साम्राज्य बहुत ही फैला हुआ और विस्तृत साम्राज्य था।

स्तान : इसका मूल स्रोत संस्कृत का शब्द स्थान है। यह शब्द बदलकर फ़ारसी और उर्दू में स्तान (ـستان) बन गया। इसका मतलब भूमि या जमीन या जगह है । अंग्रेजी का शब्द “to stand” भी इसी शब्द से बना है। यह जर्मन में stehen है, लैटिन में stāre है और ग्रीक में ἵστημι है। ऐसा भी माना जाता है की स्टेट भी इसी स्थान से बना है। जैसे की अमेरिका के नाम यूनाइटेड स्टेट वाला। यह शब्द रुसी भाषा में भी है जिसे стан कहते हैं और इसका मतलब खेड़ा होता है।

और भी बहुत से शब्द इसी से बने हैं :

रेगिस्तान : रेत की जग़ह
गुलसिताँ : फूलों की जग़ह
हिंदुस्तान : हिन्दू (सिन्धु) नदी के पास रहने वाले लोग
क़ब्रिस्तान : क़ब्रों की जग़ह

Types of Awliyah Allah by:Quran-o Hadees o sufism

There is one known as Qutubul Alam. He is also referred to as Qutubul Irshaad, Qutubul Aqtaab and Qutubul Madaar. In the Realm of the Unseen his name is Abdullah.There are seven other Aqtaab who are stationed in seven different regions of the world.One in each region.Each one is known as Qutubul Aqleem..Five Aqtaab are permanently stationed in Yemen. Each one is known as Qutubul Wilaayat..Besides the abovementioned Aqtaab there are innumerable Aqtaab. In every town and village one Qutub is stationed.


There is only one Gauth. Some Sufis assert that the Gauth and the Qutubul Aqtaab (mentioned in 1 above) refer to the same Saint. The Gauth is stationed in Makkah Shareef.


These are two Saints who are the assistants of Abdullah, the Qutubul Aqtaab.The names of the Imaamain are Abdul Malik and Abdur Rabb.


These are four in number.They are stationed in four different zones of the earth.


This group has forty Saints.Twenty two are stationed in Syria and eighteen in Iraq. Damascus is the headquarters of the Abdaal group.


There are five hundred Akhyaar and according to some Auliyaa there are seven hundred. They have no permanent regions. They travel and wander around the earth. Each one of the five hundred (or seven hundred) is named Husain.


The majority of the Sufi Saints maintain that Abraar refers to the Akhyaar group. Other Auliyaa say that the Abraar and the Akhyaar are two distinct groups.


The number of Saints in this group is three hundred.They occupy the Lands of the Maghrib (Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria).Each one is named Ali.


They are seventy in number, and are stationed in Egypt. Each one is named Hasan.

  • AMAD

There are four Autaad. They are stationed in four different regions of the world. One in each region. Each one is named Muhammad.

  • FARD

The Gauth (mentioned in class no. 2) progresses until he reaches the rank of FARD.


There is only one. Should the one die the vacancy is immediately filled. Their identities are concealed from ordinary people as they are in charge of such duties and tasks which are mystifying and beyond the layman’s grasp of reasoning and understanding. Allah Ta’ala has endowed them with considerable supernatural or miraculous powers. In matters of minutes they are able to journey thousands of miles.The numerous statements of the Auliyaa establish beyond any doubt the existence of these secret Saints. Regarding the secret order of Auliyaa known as Abdaal,


Almighty Allah has given us chance to minimize our enemy ship may be under the blessed feet
of sufiya kiraam. But instead of studying Islam through them we trust our nonsense logics
believing  that we can understand Quran and hadith. But alas! How disrupting is this statement,
when Almighty Allah did not sent Quran or any other heavens book without a teacher to teach
that or perfectly how to practice that, or else then those teachers showed us to rely on the ulema the righteous people among the nation to get guidance of book perfectly. But there is no khayr
for them because:
For whomsoever Allah  intends goodness, He gives him the understanding of Dīn. [al-Bukhārī]
Learning din by any means to learn it for khyr and if Allah bestow them with khyr then they
will definitely follow any part of din. But learning tasawwuf is khyrun kaseerah in terms of
purity being occupied in soul forever. What is tasawwuff could have many answers from many
greats but if we will have an answer from a master of tasawwuff.
‘Tasawwuf’ means to make the heart pure, to cleanse it. And
that is accomplished by way of dhikr-i-ilâhî. Attainment of the
blessing of se’âdet-i-ebediyya by the entire humanity, i.e.
goodnesses in this world and in the Hereafter, is realizable only by
dhikring very much the Name of Allâhu ta’âlâ, our real Owner.
However, this dhikring has to have been taught and permitted by
a Walî or by a true and faithful follower of that Walî who has been
authorized by him and who does not change the adabs of Islamic
principles and truth or insert bid’ats into Islam. Dhikring done
without being taught by such an authorized person will give little
benefit, if any at all. For, dhikring done with a permission is the
business of (people called) muqarrabs, whereas (people called)
ebrârs will do dhikring without a permission. Hence the blessed
statement: “The ebrârs’ acts of worship and good deeds are sinful
acts and faults for the muqarrabs.” [Imâm Rabbânî
‘rahimahullâhu ta’âlâ’ states in his hundred and ninetieth letter}
Imam Abdullah Dahlawi writes”
“Dhikr’s being useful and effective is definitely contingent on obedience to
the Islamic principles. The person to do dhikring has to practise
the acts that are farz and sunnat and avoid committing harâms and
doubtful acts. And these things must be learned from sâlih scholars
of Ahl-as-sunnat [or from their books.]”

There are three sorts of Dhikr:
1.Dhikr done by way of speech.
The heart is unaware of this dhikr being done by way of speech. Dhikr done
only by way of speech is scarcely useful in the purification of the heart. It will
yield thawâb for worship. Torment for people doing so is meant in the
twentieth âyat-i-kerîma of Zumar Sûra, which purports: “Torment awaits
people whose hearts do not make dhikr of Allâhu ta’âlâ.”
2.Dhikr done only with the heart.
The tongue does not join in the dhikring. This is the dhikr that is essential in the
path we havebeen following. The fifty-fourth [54] âyat-i-kerîma of A’râf Sûra
purports: “… Call on thine Rabb (Allâhu ta’âlâ) with humility, in private, and
silently.” And the thirtieth [30] âyat-i-kerîma of Ra’d Sûra purports: “… Know for
sure that in the dhikring of Allâhu ta’âlâ do hearts find satisfaction.” And the two
hundred and fourth âyat-i-kerîma of A’râf Sûra purports: “… Make dhikr of thineRabb
in thy (very) soul… .” This kind of dhikr is mentioned in many another âyat-i-kerîma,
in quite a number of hadîth-i-sherîfs, and in books written by religious superiors.
3.Dhikr that is done by the tongue and the heart in tandem.
Men of Allah and the Awliyâ ‘qaddas-Allâhu ta’âlâ asrârahumul’azîz’ may do this kind of
dhikr after having attained certain heights. Dhikr by way of the heart was first practised
by the Fakhr-i-’âlam ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ on the night of Hijrat (Hegira,
emigration to Medîna), in the cave named Sawr (or Sevr), wherethe Blessed Messenger
of Allah bid Abû Bakr as-Siddîq ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’ to kneel down and close his eyes and thereaftercoached him for this silent dhikr.The ‘Râbita’, which superior guides of
Tasawwuf teach travellers of this path, is a kind of communication that is commanded in
the hundred and twentieth âyat-i-kerîma of Tawba Sûra and in the fifty-second âyat-ikerîma
of An’âm Sûra, which purport: “… And be with those who are true,” and “… Try to
be with those who seek their Rabb, …” respectively; and which is done in obedience to
the hadîth-i-sherîf that reads: “Remembering the people whom Allâhu ta’âlâ loves will
motivate His Rahma.” There are other similar âyat-i-kerîmas and hadîth-i-sherîfs as
well.The latest twelve centuries’ greater Asiatic Hanafî scholars from places such as
Mâwarâ-un-nahr (Transoxiana) and Bukhâra have all tutored their disciples this kind of

Experts of the science of Tasawwuf used to say: “By dhikring will the heart be cleansed.
By dhikring will love of Allâhu ta’âlâ be attained. By dhikring will the flavour of worship
be relished. By dhikring will îmân be made firm. By dhikring will zeal for performing
namâz increase. By dhikring will it become easy to perform Islam’s commandments. By
dhikring will one surpass imitation and become a conscientious worshipper. The
commandment, ‘Do much dhikr of Allâhu ta’âlâ!’ in the Qur’ân alkerîm,points out this.”
The person who has been bestowed to do dhikr QAlbi wa siree wa khafee in all its
formats to seek his beloved is a SAALIK,” The one who keeps himself in tendum to
occupy the space and shelter of mercy from Allah azwajjal. In Naqshbandiyah order of
the saalik has been given following duties to proceed his way:
Let’s have a quick review:
1. Hoosh Dardum: The lungs breath only breath with Dhikr of Allah.
2. Nazar bar Qadum: keeping or lowering gaze on feets back to keep away the hawas
through window of eyes.
3. Safar dar watun: travelling to country or travelling from one state of zim or bad
status to good status.
4. Khalwat dar anjuman: Breathing with people but in reality keeping heart in court
of beloVed.
5. Yaad kard: Keeping dhikr tongue and heart in tendum forever.
6. Baaz ghasht:when a Dhakir keep on his work, his dua should be that O Allmighty
there is no other reason of attainment to do this without you.
7. Nigah daasht: During reciting kalima taiyiba our attention should not loose its way.
8. Yaad daasht:keeping himself in contact with Allmighty whatever and wherever he
9. Waqoofe zamani: whatever circumstances prevail one should keep himself in laws
of shukur dhikr hamd and istigfaar.
10. Waqoofe addadi: Numbering every dhikr should be only one.
11. Waqoofe qalbi: during dhikr one should take care of circumstances that our
attention should be only to Allmighty.
These laws are prevailing in every order of Sufism and one who is a sufi finds solutions to
keep himself in being in contact with Allmighty. A saalik never keeps himself in custody
of majaaz but in haqeeqah and every haqeeqah ends with HIM. To attain him perfectly
one should concentriate himself with such tidings, and third one has nothing to with such circumstances. The principles of Tasawuff merely rely on Quranic injections. To attain a
highest paramount one should climb himself on every tidy grassy and harsh
endowments. One who gets this paramount reaches and attains “Fana”.
Imam Rabbani writes:
Fanâ means to forget about the mâ-siwâ. And mâ-siwâ, in its
turn, includes all beings other than Allâhu ta’âlâ. There are two
groups of mâ-siwâ: Âfâq means creatures outside of man. Enfus
(or anfus) means things that are within man. To forget about the
âfâq is an event that takes place when the ’ilm-i-husûlî, i.e. the
knowledge pertaining to the âfâq, ceases to exist. To forget about
the enfus means for the ’ilm-i-hudhûrî, whereby the enfus is
known, to cease to exist. For, the âfâq is known through the ’ilmihusûlî,
and the enfus is known through the ’ilm-i-hudhûrî. It is
difficult for the ’ilm-i-husûlî to cease to exist, and it is attained by
the Awliyâ ‘qaddas-Allâhu ta’âlâ asrârahum-ul’azîz’. It is much
more difficult for the ’ilm-i-hudhûrî to cease to exist, and it falls
only to the lot of the very high ones of the Awliyâ. Most of the
people who look on facts by using their mind only, deny these
facts. In fact, they say that such things are unthinkable. They say
that it is out of the question for a person with perception to forget
about himself. They say, “A person has to be aware of himself. A
person cannot forget about himself even momentarily, let alone
It is at the grade called Fanâ-i-qalb that the ’ilm-i-husûlî ceases
to exist. And when the ’ilm-i-hudhûrî ceases to exist the Fanâ-inafs
takes place; it is the perfect Fanâ, the true Fanâ. The Fanâ-iqalb
is like the image, the shadow of the Fanâ-i-nafs. For, the ’ilmihusûlî
is the shadow, the image of the ’ilm-i-hudhûrî. Therefore,
the Fanâ of the ’i lm-i-husûlî, i.e. its ceasing to exist, is the shadow,
the appearance of the Fanâ of the ’ilm-i-hudhûrî. When the ’ilm-ihudhûrî
attains its Fanâ, the nafs attains itmi’nân. (That is, it
attains a state of maturity in which) it is pleased with Allâhu ta’âlâ.
And Allâhu ta’âlâ in turn is pleased with it. After the Baqâ and the
return, the nafs is given the task of guiding the disciples and
leading them to kemâl (maturity, perfection). (At this grade) the
nafs becomes blessed with the ability to make jihâd and ghazâ
against all four of the anâsir-i-erbe’a (four elements), which exist
in the human body and which are quite different from one another and at loggerheads with one another in their desires, inclinations, properties, and preferences, so much so that things
wanted by any
one of them bear no similarity to any of the needs of any of the
other three. None of the other nine components of the body can
attain this blessing. If the energy in the human body increases, the
body will become like a fiend and induce its owner to say, “Aren’t
I peerless?” And a nafs that has attained itmi’nân will make jihâd
against it and save its owner, man, from that nuisance. The other
vicious properties in the human nature such as lust, wrath, etc.
exist in other animals, too. The nafs will tame them as well, turning
them into useful versions. Subhân-Allah! How amazing it is that
the nafs, which is the worst of the ten latîfas, develops into being
the best of them and, to the bargain, makes jihâd, (i.e. fights,
struggles,) against vices. It is stated in a hadîth-i-sherîf: “Among
you, the ones who were good in the time of jâhiliyya, (i.e. before
the advent of Islam,) will also be the best ones after learning
After reading above passages from great scholar one could come to conclusion if it is
hawais of man which can take him to his Lord should be practiced and inclusion of SAMA
can be figured best ornament for it.

An Arabic couple
translated into English:
Let the most fortunate ones rejoice in the greatest blessing;
Suffice a few morsels for the poor lover’s well-being!

There are voices which are sweet and some sweet voices make to feel
something. It entrusted in nature of a human being when one listens to a good
voice he bends with advent and sweetness of it. Even some wild animals
posses such kind of voices that when one amongst us listen we feel a different
world. Voices had a great impact in our day to day lives as to transfer our
daily deals. Allah bestowed human beings with niyamat of voice when he was
alone or were few on this earth, they were afraid but once they voice made
impact the horrors started to run away. Because of voices it started to change fortunes, new ways were discoved new things were adopted. The qadr of
importance knows only those who don’t posses any voice. Almighty in Al-
Quran says “nazeedu fil khalqe mi yashaau”. The first thing that made us feel
ecstasy was “alastu birabikum”. And the last by which all human beings feel
ecstasy will be of “soor”. Then the same “soor” will once again bring dead
ones in lives back. Thus It is quite evident that voices posses both effects,
bringing dead ones to life and vice versa. It is evident from Quran Al karem
that when hazrat DAwood alyhi salam used to recite ZAboor sharief,many
people gave up their lives. It is also quite evident that people of Sufism like
hazrat bakhtiyaar kaaki gave up his life when during a mehfile sama lost in
“Tasleem wa raza”. In his book “anfaasul arifeen” shah wali ullah muhadith
dehalvi has said about his father Abdur raheem dehalvi. The incident is
regarding about his arrival at qutub bakhtiyaar kaaki rehmatullahi alyhi, The
wording take place as:
(remember shah sahib being a naqshbandi not listned sama)
Sahibe qabar: what do you say about shayar, lyrics or songs
Shah sahib: the best kalaam is best and wrong is wrong.
Sahibe qabar: what do you say who posses good voice?
Shah sahib: this is fazal of Almighty.
Sahibe qabar: when both of them will be added at one place, then what do you
Shah sahib: this is noor alan noor.
Sahibe qabar: then what we used to do was right and I advice you listen

Types of sama

For the people of Sufism listening to music just to avail freshness to nafs is something else
and not a part of sama. It becomes Sama only when it admix with music and poetry of love
to Allmighty, with mixture of love, adab shooq and zooq to intermix it with part of dhikr.
We above already had discussed the importance of dhikr.

Requirements for sama.
The requirements for sama is almost same as Required for dhikr of Allah because we are
listening it as part of dhikr. There are three principle requirements .
1. Zamaan the best time: it is quite obvious its requirement is only hearts feel more need
of dhikr.
2. Makaan. The best place: the best place for doing sama dhikr is where awliya ullah sit.
Where there is no sharah road, no market, no desire of world.
3. Ikhwaan:ikhwans are those brothers in islam who posses such etiquettes’ which are of
awliya ullah.
There are many kinds of ikhwan. Like there is ikhwan am, the brotherhood under being
children of same parents of hazrat adam. Ikhwan khaas ,the people of islam
under brotherhood banner being ummati of same beloved RAsoolullah sallalahu
alyhi wasalam.
4. Ijazat: There should be a proper ijazah from a shykh.
The important point here is to discuss is :
There are ikhtilaaf difference of opinion between sufiya vs ulema
Many sufi kind of ulema vs other ulema
Those who called it Haraam.
Those who called is mubbah.

Those who had called it permissible. And
Those who had called it not permissible.
Shykh jamal uddin muhadith alyhi rehma in his book called “IMTINAA AABAISAY
Musical songs are allowed only when it free from biddat and fawish and bad things.
He quotes hadith of BUkhari in his support.
Rubiya bint maooz has narrated a hadith said when it was his marriage , Prophet
sallalahu alyhi wasalam came to her home sat beside her. At same time some girls were
singing with daf, Suddenly they started to sing wafeena nabiyu yalamu maa fee gada”
prophet sallalhu alyhiwasalam said to them don’t say this, sing what you were singing.
After quoting other ahadith where prophet sallalhu alyhi wasalam enquired about why
not people of ansaar brought a singer with them who could say : aataynakum
aataynakum fahayana wa hayakum”.
These kind of ahadith are quoted in bukhari muslim nasai ibn hiban etc etc.
In tirmidhi sharief there is a hadith sharief ., huzoor salllahu alyhiwasalam said: spread
nikah news, do aqad in masjid and beat daf or drums>
For those fuqaha who have said it is forbidden and quote ahadith regarding them are
either baseless as per imam nawawi. Imam sakhawi in maqasid hasanaa says those
narrations are either fabricated or very week.
“imam Ibrahim bin saad used to make his students first listen sama and then giving
them classes”.
Imam shuhabuddin ahmad bin Muhammad ghazali alyhi rehma has written a book
“bawariqul asma fee takfeer mai yuharimus sama” and had explained it one who
forbade sama actually forbade act of Rasoolullah sallalahu alyhi wasalam.
In his book mudaarij un naboowah shah muhadith dehalvi has named those suhaba and
tabayeen from whom sama is proven.
Among suhaba hazrat umar, hazrat Ali, hazrat Abdullah ibn jaffer, abu masood ansari
saeed ibn musaib,sueed bin jubairm abadullahi araba muawiyyah bin sufiyan amr bin
aas and many other suhaba ridwan ullahi him ajmaiyeen used to listen sama.
Imam ghazzali in his book ihyal ullomdin has written detailed notes.

Important clarification
1. Naqshbandi sufiya do not listen sama and it haram:
Answer: this a clear lie. There stand is “na inkaar mee kunam na eeen kaar mee
2. It has not made haraam by any imam accept mutakhireen, but the consensus lie
with most of the people.
3. When poetry is haram by Quran how we can listen to them:
Answer: poetry is not haram, yes there is some kind of mazamat to shoora or peots of
arabs whose poetry was against human behavior. In Quran Allah states that there is lot
of difference what they say and what they do “with Arabic words” illalaazeen aamano it
becomes quite clear that for people with imaan can do that.

The friends of Allah are created to remove difficulties (Dafi’ al-Balaa’)

The friends of Allah are created to remove
difficulties (Dafi’ al-Balaa’)
(1) ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu narrates that Rasulullah
sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said:“Indeed Allah relieves difficulties for 100 neighbours due to a pious Muslim living near them”.[al-Mu’ajjam al-Kabir, Tabrani; Mu’alim, Baghawi]
(2) Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said: “If it were not for those servants of Allah who offer Salah and milk drinking children and four-legged grass eaters, then surely Allah would punish you and it would be a strong punishment”.[Sunan Bayhaqi; Tabrani]
(3) Sa’d bin Abi Waqqas radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu narrates that Rasulullah
sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said:“It is only due to your elders that you are given help and sustenance”.[Bukhari]
(4) ‘Ubada radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu narrates that Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alaihi
wasallam said: “There are 30 Abdal in my ummah. It is only due to them that the world
continues. It is only due to them that rainfall occurs for you and it is only due
to them that you receive help”.[al-Kabir, Tabrani]
(5) ‘Ali al-Murtada radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu narrates that Rasulullah sallallahu
‘alaihi wasallam said: “There are 40 Abdal in Sham (Syria). When one dies, Allah replaces him with another. It is only because of them that rain falls and only due to them that
enemies are defeated. It is because of them that punishment is waived from
the people of Sham”.[Ahmad]
(6) ‘Awf ibn Malik radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu narrates that Rasulullah sallallahu
‘alaihi wasallam said: “The Abdal are in Sham. It is due to their barakah that people get help and it is only due to them that sustenance is provided”.[al-Kabir, Tabrani]
(7) Anas bin Malik radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu narrates that Rasulullah sallallahu
‘alaihi wasallam said: “The world will never cease to have at least 40 awliya (saints) who will be
similar to Sayyiduna Ibrahim Khalil Allah ‘alaihis salam. It will be due to them that you will get rainfall and due to them that you shall receive help”.[al-Awsat, Tabran]
(8) Abu Huraira radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu narrates that Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alaihi
wasallam said:“Thirty people who will be similar to Ibrahim ‘alaihis salam will always
remain on the Earth. It is thanks to them that your pleas will be heard and due
to their barakah that rainfall will happen”.[ibn Hibban fi Tarikh]
(9) ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu narrates that Rasulullah
sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said:“There shall always be 40 men in my ummah whose hearts will be similar to the heart of Ibrahim ‘alaihis salam. Allah will remove difficulties from the
people due to them. Their title will be Abdal”.[Abu Nu’aym fi Hulya]
(10) Anas radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu narrates that Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said: “When Allah wishes to do good with a person, He uses the person to remove
difficulties from the people”.[Shu’b al-Iman, Bayhaqi]
(11) ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu narrates that Rasulullah
sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said: “There are some people of Allah whom Allah selects so that they may remove difficulties from the creation. People in a bad state will come to them for their
needs. Such people are free from the punishment of Allah”.[al-Kabir, Tabrani]
(12) Anas radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu narrates that Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alaihi
wasallam said: “When Allah wishes to do good with a person, He makes the person towards
whom people turn for their needs”.[Musnad al-Firdaus]
(13) ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu narrates that Rasulullah
sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said: “There are 300 friends of Allah in the creation whose hearts are like that of Prophet Adam ‘alaihis salam. There are 40 whose hearts are similar to the
heart of Musa ‘alaihis salam and 7 whose hearts are similar to the heart of Ibrahim ‘alaihis salam. There are 5 whose hearts are like that of Jibra’il and 3 whose hearts are like that of Mika’il and one whose heart is like the heart of Israfil. When he (whose heart is like Israfil) dies, then one of the three whose heart is like Mika’il replaces him and one of the five (whose hearts are like
Jibra’il) replaces him. One of the seven replaces one of the five, one of the forty replaces one of the seven and one of the three-hundred replaces one of the forty and a normal Muslim replaces one of the three-hundred. It is due to these 356awliya that creation are given life and killed, due to them rain falls, vegetation grows and difficulties are removed”.[Abu Nu’aym fi Hulya; ibn Asakir]
These sayings from the scholars demonstrate that the powers which Allah bestows upon
his Awliya are not restricted to this world but continue after their demise because when
Their sainthood is intact, its effects will be.

मौत के वक़्त की कैफ़ियत

जब रूह निकलती है तो इंसान का मुंह खुल जाता है, होंठ किसी भी कीमत पर आपस में चिपके हुए नही रह सकते. रूह पैर के अंगूठे से खिंचती हुई ऊपर की तरफ़ आती हैं. जब फेफड़ो और दिल तक रूह खींच ली जाती है तो इंसान की सांस एक तरफ़ा बाहर की तरफ़ ही चलने लगती है. ये वो वक़्त होता है जब चन्द सेकेंडो में इंसान शैतान और फ़रिश्तों को दुनिया में अपने सामने देखता है. एक तरफ़ शैतान उसके कान के ज़रिये कुछ मशवरे सुझाता है, तो दूसरी तरफ उसकी ज़ुबान उसके अमल के मुताबिक़ कुछ लफ़्ज़ अदा करना चाहती है. अगर इंसान नेक होता है, तो उसका दिमाग़ उसकी ज़ुबान को कलमा-ए-शहादत का निर्देश देता है और अगर इंसान काफ़िर मुशरिक बद्दीन या दुनिया परस्त होता है, तो उसका दिमाग कन्फ्यूज़न और एक अजीब हैबत का शिकार होकर शैतान के मशवरे की पैरवी ही करता है और इंतेहाई मुश्किल से कुछ लफ़्ज़ ज़ुबान से अदा करने की भरसक कोशिश करता है.
ये सब इतनी तेज़ी से होता है कि दिमाग़ को दुनिया की फ़ुज़ूल बातों को सोचने का मौक़ा ही नहीं मिलता. इंसान की रूह निकलते हुए एक ज़बरदस्त तकलीफ़ ज़हन महसूस करता है, लेकिन तड़प इसलिए नहीं पाता, क्योंकि दिमाग़ को छोड़कर बाकी जिस्म की रूह उसके हलक़ में इकट्ठी हो जाती है और जिस्म एक गोश्त के बेजान लोथड़े की तरह पड़ा हुआ होता है, जिसमें कोई हरकत की गुंजाइश बाक़ी ही नहीं रहती.
आख़िर में दिमाग़ की रूह भी खींच ली जाती है आंखें रूह को ले जाते हुए देखती हैं, इसलिए आंखों की पुतलियां ऊपर चढ़ जाती हैं या जिस सिम्त फ़रिश्ता रूह क़ब्ज़ करके जाता है, उस तरफ़ हो जाती हैं. 
इसके बाद इंसान की ज़िन्दगी का वो सफ़र शुरू होता है, जिसमें रूह तकलीफ़ों के तहख़ानों से लेकर आराम के महलों की आहट महसूस करने लगती हैं, जैसा की उससे वादा किया गया है. जो दुनिया से गया वो वापस कभी नहीं लौटा. सिर्फ इसलिए क्योंकि उसकी रूह आलम-ए-बरज़ख़ में उस घड़ी का इंतज़ार कर रही होती है, जिसमें उसे उसका ठिकाना दे दिया जाएगा. इस दुनिया में महसूस होने वाली तवील मुद्दत उन रूहों के लिए चन्द सेकेंडो से ज़्यादा नहीं होगी, भले ही कोई आज से करोड़ो साल पहले ही क्यों न मर चुका हो.
मोमिन की रूह इस तरह खींच ली जाती है, जैसे आटे में से बाल खींच लिया जाता है और गुनाहगार की रूह कांटेदार पेड़ पर पड़े सूती कपड़े को खींचने की तरह खींची जाती है. अल्लाह पाक हम सब को मौत के वक़्त कलमा नसीब फ़रमा. आमीन
