Once our Saint while returning from Darbhanga as per his promise became the guest of Munshi Safdar Hussain Khan Saheb, Judge of Gorakhpur Mr.Syed sharfuddin High Court Judge was also with our Saint. One day after late afternoon prayer an Englishman of high status visited our Hayat-e-Waris

saint who received him with great warmth of feeling. The Englishman began to stare at Sarkar’s face keenly. After taking leave he once again returned that very night and addressing Sarkar Waris with great respect said, “I am keen to ask you what was your name?” Our Saint replied, “the same what I bear today. He said, “No! excuse me. I know too well at first your name was Jesus Christ. I would like to remind you to fulfil your promise to me. Otherwise you will be responsible for committing an innocent’s blood hearing this Mr. Sharfudding said, “gentleman your remarks and complaint need further elucidation.” The Englishman continued, “a year back on the twenty seventh of December I saw in a dream Jesus Christ embracing me and holding a comer portion of his coverlet said, “do not fear, we will give the same to you.” Our Christ had the same clothes what you are wearing, the same facial features like yours. From that time I am awaiting when my Christ would give the same cloth to me. Today after seeing you at the Railway Station I am convinced you are the same person for whom I have been waiting since the past fourteen months. You are the same person who broke the promise.”

Mr. Sharaf-ud-Deen asked our saint what he had to say and the reply was that the Englishman’s assumption of his likeness to Jesus Christ was presumptuous. Then Sharaf-udDeen reminded our Saint that the person in question was determined to forgo his life. This aroused the sympathy of our saint who gave his own tahband to the Englishman to warp around. Which he instantly did. Our saint then give him the name of Vilayat Shah and advised God, and never to stretch his hands before others. He further commanded him to go to Nepal, sit on any peak he liked and he would get the portion to which he is entitled.




When the pagan Meccan’s hostility against the Muslims became unbearably brutal, the Prophet commanded a group of them to migrate to Abyssinia, even though Abyssinia was a Christian country and its ruler, the Negus, was a Christian. Since the repute of the King Negus reached the Prophet as a just and kind ruler, he selected the Christian country for the first and second migration. It was declared as an “Abode of Peace” for the Muslims.¹

Mut’im b. Adī was an idolater. Concerning him, the Prophet Muhammad said: “Were Mut’im b. Adi alive and interceded with me for these sinful people, I would definitely forgive them for his sake.”² And concerning, Mukhayriq, a Jewish Rabbi, he said: “Mukhayriq is the best of the Jews.”3

Barkat us Sadaat part 17

सय्यद और वज़ीर

अली बिन ईसा हर साल किसी अलवी सैयद जादे को 5000 हज़ार दिरहम बतोरे हदया देते थे, एक साल हुआ कि उन्होंने उस सैयद ज़ादे को नशे में धुत ज़मीन पर पड़े देखा, नशे में देख कर इरादा किया कि आईंदा उसको कुछ नहीं दूंगा, क्योंकि यह तो इन पैसों को शराब व कबाब में खर्च करता है।

चुनान्चे अगले साल जब वह सैयद जादा वज़ीर अली बिन ईसा के पास अपना हदिया लेने आया तो वजीर ने इस सैयद ज़ादे को सख्ती से मना किया कि आईंदा मेरे पास मत आना क्योंकि तुम इन पैसों को हराम कामों में खर्च करते हो, यह सुन कर वह सैयद जादातशरीफ ले गया। रात को वज़ीर अली बिन ईसा ने ख़्वाब देखा और ख़्वाब में उनको नबियों के ताजदार की ज़ियारत नसीब हुई, मगर हाए अफसोस जब वज़ीर ने सरकार की बारगाह में सलाम अर्ज़ किया तो आकाए दो आलम ने वज़ीर से अपना रुखे अनवर फैर लिया, वज़ीर सख़्त बेचैन व परेशान हुआ, कि सरकार मुझ से अपना रुख अनवर फैर रहे हैं। चुनान्चे दूसरी जानिब से फिर सरकार आकर अर्ज़ गुज़ार हुआ या रसूलुल्लाह ज़ेबा क्यों फैर रहे हैंकी बारगाह में आप मुझ से अपना रुखे

, मुझसे क्या ख़ता हुई है?

नबियों के ताजदार ने इर्शाद फरमाया कि:

+ ‘तुम इस सैयद जादे को इसके किसी जाती कमाल की वजह से नज़राना देते थे या मेरी नसब की वजह से?”

अल्लाहु अकबर! मतलब क्या मतलब साफ जाहिर है कि अगर तुम इसको सैयद समझ कर खिदमत करते थे तो अब भी वह सैयद ही है, गुनाहों की वजह से इसका नसब मुझसे मुंकृता नहीं हुआ, वह मेरे आल ही में दाखिल है, जब वह मेरी औलाद है तो तुम ने उसका नज़राना क्यों बंद किया?

आशिके आले रसूल आला हज़रत इमाम अहमद रज़ा खान खूब फरमाते हैं।

“सैयद अगर बद्र मज़हब भी हो जाए तब भी उसकी ताज़ीम नहीं जाती जब तक उसकी बद मज़हबी हद कुफ़्र तक न पहुंचे।” (फतावा रजाविया, बरकाते आले रसूल)
