Hazrat WARIS Pak Style of Drinking & Eating

STYLE OF DRINKING

Our Saint ‘would at first drink a lot of water in small qualities and would feel thirsty after short interval. At the time of drinking he would thoughts in an atmosphere of tranquillity and after drinking his lips moved as if to express some thing. If ever our Saint fell thirsty would never say “bring me water” but with humility and in a pleasant tone requested his attendant, “Shall we drink water? In case the attendant, replied that he had drink water just a few moment ago he would remain silent and in case the attendant brought water to drink it. So his mode of drinking depended more on the will of attendant than on his thirst.

STYLE OF EATING

It is so difficult to explain the detail Sarkar aris’ mode of eating. Since it is incumbent children of Adam to eat our Saint perfunctorily followed but eat it very little. Since our Saint
depended on God entirely, perhaps his food from unknown quarter. Although his eating was limited, his disturbed to other has limitless. This was evidenced from his childhood days and it has also been the habit of Saint and Prophets.

So much so in addition to his sparing food habits at the age of fourteen after observing the Ramadan fasts for six more days, until he became an eternal faster. When he went on his second journey to Hijaz he would break open his fast after seven days. But when at the age of fifty, he fell sick at Shikohabad, on repeated requests he included stew in his meals which were simple ad sparing. But mostly his meal included peeled green gram or black gram cooked in spinach or wild green grown in the wheat fields Chapattis and rice. He never liked any arrangement for food as it was against his way of life. He accepted the invitation of all his devotees, irrespective of rich or poor.

Although he was stickler for time, in case his host delayed the meals and when later the host announced that food was ready he would say “yes, food is ready” “or” “you ” have come”. He would eat sitting on his haunches with his knees raised upward, and with his head covered by a portion of his tahband. Never in his life did he eat with his head uncovered.

The decorum followed by his saint during meal has a unique grandeur. Apart from the dishes cooked by his attendant the spread include dishes brought by his various devotees. The attendant would present every dish to our Saint but he had no desire for tasty meals therefore he would time and again ask the attendant, “In which dish is the dal (grams) served?” and when it was passed to him he would take one mouthful; at the same time the attendant would break a few pieces of bread and dip it in the stew, at which again our Saint merely pecked. This dish was stated by our Holly Prophet as good food and traditionally followed by Saints and scholars. He would conclude by taking a few grains of rice with broth and look at the attendant who would offer a glass of water, our Saint drank half a glass and would ask for the dishes to be taken away. But the attendant would draw his attention to the various dishes laid on the table to which he would simply taste some like taking a pinch of salt or merely touch his hand to it as form of blessing. His entire food if weighed would be five tolas (50 grams) and from 1318 Hijrah his meals taken once a while had decreased to one tola (10 grams) and later not even this.

The greatness of his table spread was that all the devotees of Deva Shereef bring their dishes and include on his table spread. Apart from these, even cooks would present their delicious dishes prepared by them as an offering. The attendant presenting the sweet would say, “This sweet was brought by Thakur Panjam Singh, this Pulao was specially prepared for you by Nawab Abdul Sukur Khan, and this Kabab was prepared by the cook of King Hussein Khan. Huzoor taste these also.” Although his habit was to eat very little, yet since his devotees had prepared the dishes with a lot of effort and love he would merely taste or touch his hand to it so as not to disappoint them.He had completely lost his sense of taste such an extent that Sarkar dipping in the sweet would comment, “The dal is cooked fine.” And tasting a few grains of the Pulao would say, “The cook is very efficient. He has cooked the Kabab well.”


THE AFFECTIONATE TO CHILDREN

THE AFFECTIONATE TO CHILDREN

Being mercy incarnate, the esteemed emissary of God showed great love and affection towards children. He never scolded any child nor showed them contempt. The young Anas b. Malik recounting his experience said: “I served the Prophet for 10 years. He never once said ‘fie’ to me [i.e. used an expression to show disapproval]. If I did something that I shouldn’t have done, he did not say to me ‘why did you do it?’, and if I left out something that I should’ve done, he did not say ‘why didn’t you do it’¹… the Prophet never once rebuked me for doing something wrong, even if others rebuked me. He would prevent others from rebuking me, saying: “Leave him.” “2

On another occasion, a group of Bedouins went to see God’s Messenger. They asked, ‘Do you kiss your children?’ They [the Companions] said, ‘Yes.’ The Bedouins said, ‘By God! As for us, we do not kiss [our children].’ Upon (hearing) this, God’s Messenger said, ‘What can I do if God has removed mercy from your hearts?””3 Showing love and affection towards children is an act of mercy and the Companions stated that they have never seen anyone more merciful towards children than the Prophet Muhammad

Barkat us Saddat part 7

कुतुब औलिया, सादात में से होता है.

जब ख़िलाफ़त ज़ाहिरा में शान ममलिकत व सल्तनत पैदा हुई तो कुदरत ने आले अतहार को इससे बचाया और उसके ऐवज “ख़िलाफ़ते बातिना” अता फ़रमाई ।

हज़रात सूफ़ियाए किराम का एक गिरोह जज़म करता है कि हर ज़माने में “कुतुब औलिया” आले रसूल (सादात किराम) ही में से होंगे। (सवानेह करबला स. 50 सदरुल फाज़िल, उस्तादुल कुल, नईम मिल्लत, अल्लामा सैयद नईमुद्दीन मुरादाबादी कुद्दस सिर्रहुल अज़ीज़ )

खातून जन्नत को अपनी औलाद अज़ीज़ है ( 1 ) इमाम इब्ने हज्र मक्की हैतमी (974 हि.) तकीउद्दीन फारसी से रिवायत करते हैं उन्होंने बाज़ अइमा किराम से रिवायत की कि वह सादात किराम की बहुत ताज़ीम किया करते थे। उनसे इसका सबब पूछा गया तो उन्होंने फ़रमाया:

सादाते किराम में एक शख्स था जिसे मुतैर कहा जाता था वह अक्सर लहव व लअब में मसरूफ रहता था जब वह फौत हुआ ख़्वाब में नबी करीम फ़ातिमा जेहरा तो उस वक्त के आलिमे दीन ने उसका जनाज़ा नहीं पढ़ा तो उन्होंने की जियारत की आपके साथ हजरत सैयदा थीं। आलिम ने हज़रत फातिमा जेहरा से दरख्वास्त की के मुझ पर नज़रे रहमत फ़रमाऐं तो हज़रत ख़ातून जन्नत उसकी तरफ मुतवज्जह नहीं हुईं, उस पर अताब फ़रमाया और इर्शाद फरमाया:
क्या हमारा मुकाम मुतैर के लिए किफायत नहीं कर
सकता?”
बेशक कर सकता है। गुनहगार सादात के जख्मों पर आप मर्हम पट्टी नहीं करेंगी तो और कौन करेगा। हर एक को अपनी औलाद प्यारी होती है बेशक आपको भी अपनी आले अजीज़ है। गुनाह से नसब नहीं टूटता। जैसे भी हैं आपके हैं।
“जिसका जो होता है रखता है उसी से निस्बत”

(2) हज़रत इमरान बिन हुसैन फ़रमाते हैं, नबी अकरम ने फ़रमाया:
“मैंने अपने रब करीम से दुआ की कि मेरे एहले बैत में से किसी को आग में दाखिल न फ़रमाए तो उसने मेरी दुआ कुबूल फरमा ली।” (बरकाते आले रसूल)
