Hadith:the Ark of Noah.

Interesting to see, al-Hakim has many other traditions about necessity of following Ahlul-Bayt, among
which is the following tradition. This tradition is also narrated by many other Sunni scholars and is known as
the “Tradition of the Ship” in which the Prophet (PBUH&HF) stated:
“Behold! My Ahlul-Bayt are like the Ark of Noah. Whoever
embarked in it was SAVED, and whoever turned away from it was
PERISHED.”

SLEEP AND STROLL AFTER SUPPER

SLEEP AND STROLL AFTER SUPPER

Our Saint was very punctual in his habits. He would pick the teeth after supper, take a stroll in the bed room which was supposed to be forty steps as a sign of health, but with much difficulty cover twelve steps and would be down.

Even his sleep in reality was not a sleep. His every action was never personal but to please other. Once our Saint was not keeping well. Hakim Abdul Aziz Saheb Lucknowi attended on him and recovered very quickly. But Hakim Mamdu on seeing our Saint always sleeping on the right side suggest that he should sleep on the left side for some time for health’s sake. Our Saint would lie on the only left side for only a minute sit up and then change to the right side but his backed never touched the ground. The reason being he had already forfeited rest and comfort for love of God. As such his lying posture of resting on the right shoulder without pillow was not in reality a rest and his back never touched the floor.

Regarding his height he was neither too tall nor too short but he carried himself with such a bearing that all assembled recognized his grandeur.

Our Saint remained a life-long celibate and was not keen to saddle the responsibility of being a family man. The author of his biography discusses in detail the pros and cons of being a celibate quoting the authorities and justification for his determination to remain a confirmed celibate, to concentrate his attention to achieve the ultimate goal of merging him self with the Infinite.

The pages of history have recorded the names of eminent and exalted personalities of spiritual attainment who preferred to remain celibate as marriage and the responsibility of bringing up children would have come in their way of life they were wedded. The whole world is aware of their purity of life, their efforts to guide common people to travel on the right path of rectitude.

As our Saint was a luminary of highest spiritual exaltation and a true celibate he spent his whole life time as an ascetic and had no inclination to become a family man. He spent his whole life time as a globe trotter mystic serving his connection with Mundane affairs.,

In fact his mode of dress and facial features resembles the Holy Prophet Jesus Christ; was endowed and blessed with those sterling qualities of head and heart, peculiar specialities of that sublime and high prophet about whom our Holy Prophet Muhammad referred as “Holy Ghost”.From his state of affair and happening it is clear that he is a true descendent of the family of our Holy Prophet and from his gesture, movements, precepts and practice companion.

THE BEST NEIGHBOUR



THE BEST NEIGHBOUR

” I The Prophet Muhammad did not just teach his followers to be good to their friends and family, but he also taught the rights of neighbours. On one occasion, he said, “By God, he is not a believer; by God, he is not a believer; by God, he is not a believer, one whose neighbours are not secure from his harm.’

The Prophet did not discriminate between any of his neighbours, even if they were not Muslims and they did not believe in him. He looked after his neighbours and he enjoined the Muslims to look after their neighbours saying, “He is not a believer who spends the night satiated to his full whilst knowing that his neighbour goes to sleep hungry.”2

Barkat us Sadaat part 8

तेरी जब मेरी ही कलाई पर लगी है. आरिफ बिल्लाह इमाम अब्दुल वहाब शोअरानी कुद्दस सिर्रहू फरमाते हैं:

सैयद शरीफ ने हज़रत ख़िताब ७२ की खान्काह में बयान किया कि काशिफुल जीरह ने एक सैयद को मारा तो उसे उसी रात ख़्वाब में रसूले अकरम की इस हाल में ज़ियारत हुई कि आप
इससे ऐराज़ फरमा रहे हैं, उसने अर्ज़ किया या रसूलुल्लाह ! मेरा क्या गुनाह है?

फरमाया: तू मुझे मारता है हालांकि मैं क़यामत के दिन तेरा शफीअ हूँ। उसने अर्ज़ किया या रसूलुल्लाह! मुझे याद नहीं कि मैंने आपको मारा हो। आपने फ़रमाया: क्या तूने मेरी औलाद को नहीं मारा? उसने अर्ज़ किया हाँ।

आपने फ़रमाया: तेरी ज़र्ब मेरी ही कलाई पर लगी है, फिर आपने अपनी कलाई निकाल कर दिखाई जिस पर वरम था जैसे कि शहद की मक्खी ने डंक मारा हो । “

हम अल्लाह तआला से आफियत का सवाल करते हैं । (जैनुल बरकात)

हुज़ूरे पाक से इश्क की अलामत

हज़रत शैख अमानुल्लाह अब्दुल मुल्क पानी पती कुद्दस सिर्रहू (997 हि.) ने फ़रमायाः

दुरवैशी मेरे नज़दीक दो चीज़ों में है, एक (1) खुश अखलाकी और (2) मुहब्बत एहले बैत । मुहब्बत का कामिल दर्जा यह है कि महबूब के मुतअल्लिकीन से भी मुहब्बत की जाए, अल्लाह तआला से कमाल मुहब्बत की निशानी यह है कि हुज़ूर से मुहब्बत हो और हुज़ूर से इश्क की अलामत यह है कि आप के एहले बैत से मुहब्बत हो। अगर आप पढ़ते पढ़ाते आपकी गली से सैयद जादे खेलते कूदते निकलते आप (सूफी अमानुल्ला पानीपती) हाथ से किताब रख कर सीधे खड़े हो जाते और जब तक सैयद जादे मौजूद रहते आप बैठते न थे।” (अख़बारुल अख़यार फी इसरारुल अबरार )

हदीस :: जिस शख़्स़ ने कोई दरख़्त लगाया ।


ह़ुज़ूर नबिय्ये अकरम ﷺ ने फ़रमाया:
“जिस शख़्स़ ने कोई दरख़्त लगाया तो अल्लाह रब्बुल इ़ज़्ज़त उस दरख़्त से ह़ास़िल होने वाले फल की मिक़्दार के बरआबर उस के लिये अज्र लिख देता है।”
