Shrine of Hazrat Abul Hasan Kharaqani
He was perfect in the following things. 1.Tariqat ( Mystic way of life). 2.Haqiqat ( Intimate knowledge of Allah).
He was great source and as well as treasure of Marifat ( knowledge of Allah ). His piousness and greatness was accepted by all learned persons. Bayazid Bustami used to visit every year the graves of martyrs and when he used to reach Qarqan then will used to look at the sky and will used to take deep breath and he would smell the fragrance there . Once the disciples asked him what did he smell there? He replied them that he would smell the fragrance of one of the great Sufi Master from the land of Qarqan and his patronymic name will be Abul Hasan and his name will be known as Ali . He will get livelihood of his family members by adopting the occupation of agriculture and his rank and status will be three times greater than him .
For a period of twenty years he (Abul Hasan) will used to visit
the tomb of Bayazid Bustami in Bustam and would leave Qarqan after Eisa prayer ( night prayer) and will reach back his place and used to pray there as follows.
” Oh : Allah grant me the same status which You have given
to Bayazid Bustami ” and after this prayer he will return back to Qarqan and attend the Fajar prayer ( morning prayer) there.
He used to take great care and respect in Bustam and returned back from there in the inverted footsteps so that there will be no disrespect of the tomb of Bayzid there. After the completion of above routine for a period of twelve years he heard a divine call from the tomb of Bayazid that his ( Abul Hasan ) time has come so he told him due to no education at all he did not got the knowledge of Sharia law (Islamic law) so for this reason he requested him for his help in this matter and he heard a call in which it was told that whatever he got in his life was due to his sake only. He replied him that you were passed from the world thirty nine years before him so he heard a divine call again that he is right and it is real thing.
Whenever he will used to pass from the land of Qarqan then
he will used to watch the light from that land to the sky. For one of his desire he (Bayazid) prayed for a period of 30 years but it was not granted by Allah and he was ordered to submit his request for the sake of that light for its approval in the court of Allah. So upon acting as per the above commandment of Allah his desire was fulfilled.
After this event he reached back to Qarqan and completed memorization of holy Quran by heart in twenty four days only. But it was mentioned in other reference that he heard divine a call from tomb of Bayazid to read Surah Fatiha ( the opening chapter of the of holy Quran) and when he commenced it and upon reaching back to Qarqan he was memorized the whole Quran. Once he was digging in his garden and he found silver there so he levelled that place and started digging in another place and he found gold there and in third place he found pearls and in the fourth place he found jewellery but he did not take the above four things from there and he told that Abdul Hasan will not like all these things. He told that if he would get the religion and world then he will not look at
all and not go away from Him (Allah ). When the time of the prayer will come then he will used to leave the bullocks in the ploughing condition in the field and do the prayers of Allah. Upon return from the prayer he will find the soil ready for the cultivation.
Once great Shaikh Abul Omer Abbas told him that we both
will climb the tree and will jump from there. He replied him that by leaving the heaven and hell we will jump from there by holding the hands of Allah . Once Abul Abbas dip his hand in the water and caught the live fish from there and presented the same before him so he put his hand in the fire place and presented the fish from there before him and told him that to bring the fish from the fire place is more meaningful and important than to bring the fish from the water. Abul Abbas asked him to jump in the oven together and to see that who will come out alive from there. So he told him not like this but we both should drown into the annihilation so that we both should see who will come out from Allah’s personality. Upon hearing this sheikh was silent and not told anything further in this matter.
Sheikh Abul Omer used to said that due to his (Abul Hasan’s) fear he could not sleep for a period of twenty years. He told in all places he will find Abul Hasan ahead of him and in all places he was left behind of him for four steps and he tried ten times to reach the tomb of Bayazid before him but always he was not successful in this matter because Allah given him such a strength and power that with the help of it he will used to cover the distance of three miles in one minute and so with the help of such a strength and power he will reach Bustom very fast.
Once he was shown his four fingers and then he pointed out
one finger among it and explained it that its direction is towards Qibla (direction in which the Muslims turn in the prayer
towards holy Makkah ). In that year the way to Makkah for Hajj pilgrimage was closed and for this reason some Hajj pilgrims were died on the way and some Hajj pilgrims were returned back from there.
So the persons asked sheikh Abbas who is responsible for the
death of so many Hajj pilgrims then he told them that when the elephants will touches their bodies with ground then there will be possibility of the death of so many mosquitoes.
Once a group wanted to travel through a dangerous route so for
this reason the persons were requested him to give them some prayer so that with its help they can able to travel safely through the dangerous route.
So he told them if they face any difficulty and trouble then
they should remember him in that situation. But the persons not given importance to his instruction and they started their journey . On the way the robbers attacked them and among them one person who had lot of his goods and luggage with him for the value of large amount and in that situation he remembered his name truthfully there and due to this reason he was vanished with his goods and luggage from there so the robbers were surprised to see that a man with his lot of goods and luggage was not available there.
The other travellers who did not remembered his name were
looted by the high way robbers. Upon the return of the robbers that man who was vanished from the spot was appeared again there with his goods and luggage. So other persons asked him where he was gone and why his lot of goods and luggage was not looted by the robbers then he told them that he remembered the sheikh’s name truthfully and for this reason Allah vanished him from there and he was safe and his goods and luggage was also not robbed by the robbers.
When that group of travellers reached back to Qarqan and they told the sheikh that they were remembered Allah truthfully but despite of this fact all of their goods and luggage was looted there by the robbers but one person who remembered you was safe and secure with his goods and luggage due to remembering your name so what is the reason in this matter .? He told them that “You all will remember Allah orally but Abul Hasan will remember Allah sincerely. So you should remember Abul Hasan because Abul Hasan will remember Allah for your sake and to remember Allah orally is useless thing without any benefit of it.”
One disciple requested him to grant the permission to go to the mountain of Lebanon to see Qutub Alam there so he gave him permission. When that person reached the mountain of Lebanon and saw one funeral was ready there and all persons were waiting for Qutub Alam so that disciple was asked them for whom they are waiting there and they replied him that Qutub Alam used to come there to lead for the five congregation prayers daily so they were waiting for his arrival there. So that person was very happy that he can meet soon Qutub Alam there. After some time the persons were started preparation of congregation prayer and soon the funeral prayer was started.
When that person saw the Imam (leader) of the prayer was his master only and due to the fear that disciple became un- conscious and when he was become normal then he found that bier was buried there and no person was not there and also Qutub Alam was also no more there. So for his satisfaction and confirmation that disciple asked again with some persons what is the name of Imam who was here for the last prayer and they told that his name is Qutub Alam Abul Hasan Qarqani and he
will come again for the next prayer. So that disciple was waiting for him to see him there in the next prayer.
After end of the next prayer when Qutub Alam completed the prayer and the disciple approached him and caught his robe and due to too much fear he could not tell anything in this matter . So he (Abul Hasan) told him and was given him the instructions that he should not disclose whatever he was seen here in Qarqan because he prayed Allah to keep him hide from the creatures and not to disclose his status and position to the mankind except Bayazid Bustami who is alive after his death.
One disciple requested him to grant him permission to go Iraq
for the learning of Hadith ( traditions of the holy prophet) there so he asked him is any good teacher of Hadith ( traditions of the holy prophet) is not available here.? So the disciple replied him that no famous teacher is not available there . So he told him that he will teach him Hadith ( traditions of the holy prophet) there . As Allah despite of his no basic education granted him all the knowledges due to His grace and mercy. And the prophet taught him the knowledge of Hadith( traditions of the holy prophet) personally. But that person did not believed his saying.
When he was slept in that night and saw the prophet and who
told him that the courageous person’s saying is right. So from the next morning he was joined his teaching classes of Hadith ( traditions of the holy prophet) of the holy prophet with him. During his Hadith ( traditions of the holy prophet) teaching some time he used to tell him that this Hadith is not right and not belongs to the prophet. So that person was asked him how he does know in this matter.? So he told him when you study Hadith( traditions of the holy prophet) with him then he used to busy in observation of the prophet and when you study the right Hadith ( traditions of the holy prophet) then there will be
indication of happiness on the forehead of the prophet and for the wrong Hadith ( traditions of the holy prophet) there will be signs of worries on the forehead of the prophet and for this reason he could able to know the right and wrong Hadith ( traditions of the holy prophet) easily.
Abdullah Ansari used to said that once he was arrested by the
royal policemen and they took him towards Balkh city so he was thinking on way that what crime he was done and for this reason the iron chains were put on his foot. When he was reached Balkh city and he saw that the people were there on the roofs of their houses with holding of stones in their hands and they were ready to throw stones on him .
At that time there was Ilham ( revelation) on him in which it
was informed him that once he put his foot on the prayer mat of Abul Hasan while spreading it on the floor and this is the punishment of that mistake. So he was repented for his mistake and due to this reason the persons were unable to throw the stones on him and the chains were broken automatically and the ruler was ordered the royal policemen to release him immediately without further delay.
Once Sheikh Abu Saeed came to his house as guest along with
his disciples and at that time there was nothing in the house except few pieces of the breads were there but he was ordered his wife to cover the bread pieces with cloth and to give the bread pieces as per demand of the guests from the inside of the cloth. Due to this act all persons were ate the breads as per their desire and demand.
As per another reference at that time so many persons were eating the breads on the eating cloth and the servant was serving them while giving the breads from the cloth cover. Due to his miracle many breads were coming from inside of the cloth but as a matter of fact there were few pieces of breads were
available in the cloth cover in the house. The servant removed the cloth cover to check the position of breads there but there was nothing there in the cloth cover . So he scolded the servant that his act is very bad because if he would not removed the cloth from the breads then till the day of judgement the breads will be available from that source for all.
After dinner Abu Saeed requested him for the Samah (ecstasy
caused by music ) and despite of his un-willingness he was given permission for the Sama (ecstasy caused by music ) as per his guest’s request as he never heard Samah before. When Qawals (chorister ) were singing the poetry lines with snap of fingers and Abu Saeed then told him that now it is the time to stand there and hear the Samah (ecstasy of caused music). He stood while twitched his sleeves and push the ground with his feet with full force and due to this reason the shrine walls were began moving so Abu Saeed requested him to stop this as there was possibility of falling the building as the earth and sky were also in the condition ecstasy with him.
Then he told him that the Samah ( ecstasy caused by music )
is legal for one who could see the wideness from sky to empyrean and from the earth to nether regions and for him there will be no veil and its meaning is that the veil was cleared for him . Then he addressed the persons and told them that if some of the group of persons will ask why you do dance like this then reply them that we are following this in the tradition of great pious persons like Abul Hasan and others.
Once Abu Saeed and Abul Hasan wanted to exchange their flexible and inflexible affairs so they both embraced with each other and for this reason the condition of both of them was changed instantly. Abu Saeed went to his house and began weeping throughout the night while putting his head on his leg. Abul hasan was in full ecstasy throughout the night in which he
was crying the whole night. In the morning Abu Saeed went to his house and requested him to give back his saintly dress because he did not have power and so he could not bear the difficulties and troubles. So Abul Hasan said Bismillah (in the name of Allah ) and they embrace with each other and they retrieved their previous conditions .
He told him that ” Abu Saeed do not come on the day of
judgement before him because your are incapable to bear the uproar on the day of judgement. When he will first reach there and stop the uproar of the judgment day then he should proceed there.” The writer of this book says that if somebody will object in this matter that how Abul Hasan will stop the uproar of the judgment day and for this it will reply him that when Allah given power to an unbeliever who wanted to throw the mountain on prophet Moses (peace be upon ) which was four miles away from him. So in the same way Allah can give power to a Muslim to stop the uproar of day of the judgment.
At the time of leaving him Abu Saeed kissed his door’s sill
due to respect and to show him that he is not equal to him and he is proud of kissing his Astan Busi ( paying one’s homage). Then Abu Saeed asked the persons to put the sill stone in the window and fix there for the respect but it was missed from there in night and reached the sill stone of his door in its place and this act was done for three days. So he asked the persons to leave it as it is and for the respect of Abu Saeed he was closed the above door of the shrine and another door of the shrine was opened in this matter.
One day he told Abu Saeed that he appointed him as the pious person of the time because since long time he was praying Allah for the grant of the child for him who can become his successor so he is grateful to Allah for grant of such person like you. Abu Saeed never spoke before sheikh so the persons asked
him the reason in this matter so he told them that it is good deed that not to talk before sheikh because there is no value of the river before the sea. He told them that he was stone before coming to Qaran and but now he is the polished pearl.
Once Abu saeed was speaking in a large gathering in which the
son of Abul Hasan was also present there . He told the persons who are free from self-adornment are like the children who will deliver from the womb of the mother as clean and clear and such person will pass from earth to world of souls. Then he pointed his son and told if anybody want to get the details then they should see his father.
Abul Qasim Tastasri told when he will used to visit Qarqan then there will be great fear of Abul Hasan on him so for this reason he was unable to talk there. Due to this reason he used to think that he will be degraded from the position of Wilaayat (Sainthood, is a status of closeness which Allah has blessed to some of His beloved servants through His Grace).
When Bu Ali Sena due to his fame of piousness and greatness
reached Qarqan and visited his house and was asked his wife where sheikh was gone? And his wife was replied him that he is telling sheikh to a Zindiq (un-believer ) and liar and she do not know where is sheikh but her husband was gone to the jungle to bring firewood from there. For this Bu Ali Sena thought that when his wife is so rude so what will be his position even though he was heard much about his greatness and piousness. So it seems that his position is not low and down. When he reached in the jungle to search for him and he found that he was coming from the jungle with fire wood loaded on the tiger’s back . When he saw the scene he was much surprised in this matter and with great respect he kissed his foot and told him that Allah granted him high position and great rank but your wife told many bad things about you so what is the reason in this matter.? He
replied him that if he will not bear the weight of a goat then how the tiger will bear his weight ?.
Then he took Bu Ali Sena to his house and after discussion for some time and asked him to leave as he want to continue his work of wall building in the house as he was already mixed the soil for it. He said this and sat on the wall and at that time his brick axe was fallen from his hand to the floor so Bu Ali Sena went forward to collect and to give the brick axe to him but it was automatically reached back to his hand from the floor. When Bu Ali Sena saw this miracle and he become his disciple from that time.
Once there was sever pain in the stomach of the minister of Baghdad and all the physicians were informed him that his death is sure due to that severe pain. But some persons took the footwear of Abdul Hasan to his house and put it on the stomach of the minister and for this reason he was recovered well at once.
One person requested him to give his dress to wear so that he
could become great like him so he told him is any women will become man upon wearing the dress of man.? And he continued his discussion in this matter that if it is not possible then how he will become great upon wearing his dress. So when that person heard his remarks then that person was very sorry and regretted for his mistake in this matter .
Some person requested him to grant permission for the
preaching to the congregations about need for the invitation towards Allah so he told him when you preach to the mankind then do not preach yourself. So that person was asked him is anybody will preach himself also ?. So he told sure and the condition for it is that when other person will preach you then you do not like it and in this way you will become the man who
preach himself but you will not become the preacher for the sake of Allah.
Once Mahmud of Gazni was promised his servant Ayaz that he will give his dress to him and allow him to sit in his place and also he (Mahmud ) will exchange his dress from Ayaz and he will sit in his place. So when Mahmud Gazni went to Qarqan to see Abul Hasan and when he reached there and sent a messenger to him that he came there to see him so kindly favour in this matter and see him in his tent there. And he told the messenger that If he will refuse then he should read the following Quranic verse and its meaning is as follows.
“To obey Allah and his messenger as well as the ruler of your nation.” When the messenger conveyed his message then he refused in this matter so the messenger read the above verse from the holy Quran. But he told the messenger that he is busy in the obedience of Allah so he is feeling sorry for obedience of the prophet and so in this condition there will no question of obedience of the ruler does not arise with him. When Mahamud of Gazni heard his reply then he told that he was thinking him as ordinary type of Sufi master but he is very great and Sufi master of this time. So he will proceed to visit him at his place. Mahmud wore the dress of Ayaz and Ayaz wore Mahmud’s dress and ten maids were dressed in men’s wears and Mahmud was in between them and they reached to see Abul Hasan at his residence. Abul Hasan replied the Salam but he did not stood to welcome the king and was turned towards Mahmud who was dressed in slave’s uniform but he not given importance to Ayaz who was in the dress of royal king. When Mahmud asked him why he did not welcome the king so he replied him that all is false there and nothing is true. So Mahmud told him that if this fraud then you are like shahbaz (falcon) and will not be deceived in this matter. So he caught Mahmud’s hand and told
him to remove all the Na-mahrums (un-initimate) from there so that they can continue their discussion there . Upon Mahmud’s instructions all maids left from there and then Mahmud asked to tell him any story of Bayazid Bustami.
So he told the sayings of Bayazid Bustami which is as
follows. “One who will visit him then he will be free from his un-luckiness and adversity.” So Mahamud was asked him whether the position and rank of Bayazid Bustami is greater than the holy prophet. Because Abu Lahab and Abu Jahal saw the prophet but their misfortune was not gone from them. So he told him to take care of respect in the matter and don’t exceed in his Wailt (Sainthood ,which is a status of closeness which Allah has blessed to some of His beloved servants through His Grace) because except the four caliphs and the companions nobody was seen the prophet and for this point he can refer the following verse from the holy Quran and its meaning is mentioned as follows. “Oh ; Prophet you will see to the persons who will look at you but they could not see you at all.” So when Mahmud heard this verse he was very happy in this matter and he was requested him for his further kind advises so he told him that to be away from bad deeds and do not miss the congregational prayers and follow the kindness and generosity . When he asked for the prayers he told him that he is always praying for the Muslim men and women for the mercy and kindness of Allah. When he asked him for his personal prayer and he prayed for the good end of his life due to mercy and kindness of Allah. When Mahmud presented him a piece of string of gold coins so Abul Hasan was given him a tablet of barley and asked to eat it .So Mahmud took it and broken it into pieces and put into his mouth and chewed it for some time but it was not passed into his throat. So Abul Hasan told him that the loaf of tablet of barley is hanged in his throat and Mehmud
replied yes. So he told him in the same way the piece of string of gold coins will be hanged in his throat so please take it back because he was already divorced the world’s wealth and treasures. Upon Mehmud’s several requests he did not take anything from him. Again Mehamud requested him to grant anything as benediction for him so he gave him his old dress. While leaving him Mehmud told him that his shrine is very beautiful and so he replied him that Allah granted him a vast kingdom but despite of this there is greed in him so he is in demand of his hut. When Mahmud heard his remarks then he was sorry for his act of greed and desire. When Mahmud was leaving the shrine then he stood to say good bye to him so Mehmud asked him why he was stood upon his departure from him as he did not welcomed him and stood upon his arrival to his residence. He was replied him that at that time there was royal proud in him so he want to check his piousness and status but now he is returning back with humility and mystic thoughts and the sun of indigence is shining on his forehead. Upon hearing his last remarks Mahmud left his shire.
While attacking on Somnath temple in India when Mahmud saw a large number of Indian armies with huge ammunition and war weapons and due to this reasons he was sure that he will be defeated very badly so after ablution he prayered and requested Allah to help him in the great war and for the grant of victory for the sake of dress of Abul Hasan Qarqani and whatever war booty will be available in the war will be given to poor persons as charity. Allah granted his prayer and the enemies due to their differences in between themselves they fought with each other and in the last Mehmud of Gazni was victorious in this great historic of war in India which was opened a gate way to Islam in India.
In the night Mehmud saw in his dream in which Abul Hasan Qarqani told him ” Oh : Mehmud you asked for the small thing for the sake of his dress and if he would asked Allah for the conversions of all non-believers in the world into Islam then Allah will grant his request and no non-believers will be left in the world without mercy of Allah.” One night he told to the persons that now this time in some jungle thieves were looted one caravan and injured some members of the caravan. But there is strange thing was happened in that night that somebody was slaughtered his son and put his head on the door of his house and he was not aware of this.
When his wife was heard these two things and she refused about his Waliyat (Sainthood ,which is a status of closeness which Allah has blessed to some of His beloved servants through His Grace) and she told not to discuss about him because he will know the event of far way but he is not aware of the event which was happened in the house on his door.
So he told when the caravan was looted then there were no veils before him and when his son was killed in the house at that time the veil was there before him. When mother saw the head of boy on the door and due to her shock she wept greatly and cut her hairs from her head and put on the head of the boy and as a human being Abul Hasan was also shocked due to this great event of murder of his dear son so he also cut his hairs of beard and put on the head of the boy and he told his wife ” We both sowed the seed and you cut your hairs of your head and put on the boy’s head and he also cut the hairs of his beard and put on the boy’s head so now our act is same and similar.”
Once there was severe starvation of seven days on him and his disciples and on the seventh day one person brought a bag of
flour and one goat on door of his house and he told these things are for the Mystic persons. So he told his disciples that he did not having capacity of Mystic person so if anybody from all of you having the qualities of Mystic person with them then they can take the things brought by the man on the door. But nobody claimed as mystic person and preferred for the starvation .
One women has two sons and both of them have agreement with themselves that one will do worship in the night then his another brother will be in service of his mother . One night one brother told his another brother that if you do service of mother tonight instead of him then he will engage in the worship of Allah so he granted him his permission and he was engaged himself in the service of his mother. When his brother commenced his worship and in its beginning he was heard a divine call in which it was told that ” We have granted Our mercy on your brother and for his sake We have also granted mercy upon you .” When he heard this call he was surprised to hear the same and he prayed ” Oh : Allah he was praying You and my brother in the service of mother so what is reason that You forgiven my brother and not me and for his sake You granted mercy on him.” And he heard again a divine call in which he was told that ” We do not want your worship and we will prefer and like the sincerity of the person who is in service of his mother .” For a period of 40 years he did not take rest even for a minute and used to attend Fajar (morning) prayer with ablution of Eisha ( night) prayer. After 40 years he was asked his disciples to give him pillow so that he can take some rest .So the disciples were surprised to hear this and they asked him why this idea was came into his mind upon a period of forty years. He told them that today he observed Allah’s indifference and Estagna (ability to dispense with carelessness) and for a
period of 30 years except the fear of Allah nothing was there in his heart.
Once a Sufi person came there by flying in the air to see him and landed before him and while touching the ground he told he is Junaid of his time . When Abul Hasan heard this and stood and touched the ground and he told him that he is also god and Mustafa ( name of the last prophet of Islam ) of his time. The writer of book explained that this event happened due to his condition of engrossment so for such acts of pious persons which are against the Islamic Law in the condition of engrossment will not be remarked adversely.
In what is considered the most compelling entry in this book, Attar relates the story of the execution of Hallaj, the mystic who had uttered the words, ‘I am the Truth’ in a state of ecstatic contemplation. As per the saying of the holy prophet which is as follows and here its translation is mentioned as follows.
- I find the Nafs (souI) of the Rahman (Allah) from the right side.”
Once he heard a divine call in which it was told that ” Oh: Abul Hasan why did you not afraid of Nakarin ( the two angels questioning man in his grave about his faith )”. So he told as the brave man will not afraid of the camel’s bell so he is also not afraid of the dead persons . Again he heard a divine call in which it was told ” Why he did not afraid of day judgement and its troubles” and he replied that when You will bring me from the earth to day of judgement then he will remove his dress of Abul Hasan and will drown into the sea of Wahdanit (the belief in the unity of god) so that nothing will be there except Wahidanit(the belief in the unity of god) and in this way he will
not be there then how the angels will bring the punishment on him.
Once in the night during prayer time he heard a divine call in which it was told do you desire that we should disclose whatever We know about you to the mankind? And he replied that ” Oh : Allah do You want that I should disclose the observation of mine which I got due to Your kindness and mercy and this thing will be disclosed by me to the mankind.?
Once he told ” Oh : Allah do not send the angel of death to take out my soul as the soul was not given by the angel of death nor I am ready to deliver it to the angle of death and the soul is Your entrusted thing and so I want to return back to You.”
He told he heard a divine call in which it was told “What is faith (Eman)” and he replied that the faith is the thing which You given to him. He told he heard a divine call in which it was told “You are mine and I am Yours.” But he replied in this matter that ” You are Omnipotent and I am a helpless person.”
He used to said that when he reached near the empyrean the angels in groups welcomed him and they told him that they are angels and one group told we are creations of angels who live on the sky and other group told we are spiritual and then he told them he is Ilahiayan (divine ) and when the angels heard this they were very sorry in this matter and when learned persons heard his reply then they were very happy with him.
He used to said till today he was unable to know the prophet’s status and his knowledge of Allah (Marifat) and it meaning is that there is no end of these things. He told Allah granted him such feet that with which he will proceed from the empyrean
to the nether regions and returned back from there to the empyrean again. But he could not know that where he was gone and its direction.
He heard a divine call in which it was told that whose steps will be like this then how far he can reach .? So he thought that how far is this journey and how short is such journey that he gone and travelled back at the same place. He told he heard 4000 things from Allah and if he would have heard 10,000 things from Allah then what things will be happen to him he do not know? He told due to mercy of Allah such power was given to him that with which if he will determine to change the black rag into Roman brocade then he could change it at once. And due to kindness of Allah such power is still with him.
He told even though he was not having basic education but due to kindness and mercy of Allah he learned all the knowledges . He was grateful for Allah for his help for his get lostness in His Haqiqat (truth ). As his apparent body is not real as its personal existence was already finished . He told Allah granted him such a pain that if some of its portion will be out then there will be deluge which will be more dangerous than the Noah’s deluge . He told upon his death he will help his disciples at the time of their deaths . When the angel of death will be with them then he will stretch his hands from his tomb and put water of kindness of Allah on the lips and tooth of the dying persons so that they will not forget Allah at that serious and difficult time.
He told ” Oh : Allah give him such thing which you have not given from prophet Adam ( peace be upon him ) to anybody as he do not like the things which You were already given to others. ” And again he told to his disciples that Allah granted
all favours only to your teacher which He was granted to all others Sheikhs of Mysticism .He told after Eisha prayer (the night prayer ) he did not used to take rest unless he would not present his daily account of deeds to Allah. He told on the day of judgement If Allah will forgive all the mankind due to his sake then he will not look at there due to his sublimity which he possess with him in the court of Allah.
He told the persons what do you think about such a person who will not like the inhabitations and lonely places and keep remember this thing that Allah will grant him such a great status and position and for the sake of that person’s position there will be great light on the day of judgement that inhabitations and lonely places will be enlighten and then due to his position and status Allah will forgive all the creations .As a matter of fact that person has not prayed in the world nor he will recommend the creatures on the day of judgement.
He told in the lonely places some time Allah will grant such a power to him with which if he will desire then he can caught and take away the sky and if he will want he can able to travel to the nether regions within seconds and see it there. He told that his every action is a miracle. If he will stretch his hand then he will find the air which will be turned into the particles of gold .As a matter of fact he will never stretch his hand in the air for the sake of miracle because one who will desire of the miracle and to show his miracle and so for him Allah will close the door of miracles. He told there will be no peace in your hearts if they are dead. He told the meaning of miracle is that if the Darwesh will ask some question with the stone then it should reply to him.
Again he told the persons that who used to keep fast and worship day and night to get their goals in the life but due to kindness and favour of Allah he will reach to the goal. He told when he was four months old in the womb of his mother and he could remember the details of all events from that time to till now and when he will pass from the world then also he will tell the details of events of the day of judgement to the persons.
He told he could explain the signs better than jin, human beings, animals and birds because Allah brought all these things before him and shown him the above things clearly and he told he know well about the areas of this end to other end of the world and if there will be any splinter in the finger of anybody then he would know also in that matter . If he will disclose the secretes between him and Allah then the persons will not believe in this matter . If he will explain the details of favours of Allah on him then in that situation the hearts of the mankind will burn like cotton .
He told he would feel sorry to stand before Allah and talk with Him in the condition of consciousness and he will keep away from that caravan for which the prophet is not head of the caravan. He told Allah kept start and end of the creatures and its start is that the deeds of creatures which will they do in the world and its end is the rewards that the creatures will get on the day of judgment. He told Allah granted him such a time for which the world and religion are desirous of it. He told he will worships for the sake of Allah without caring the hell and heaven and always he is in the condition of the fear of Allah.
He told that he never explain the special matters of Allah to the special persons because they are unable to understand the secrets in it and also he will not explain these things to his
personality because in that case there will be possibility of proud and show in this matter. He told Allah did not given the power to his tongue to explain the secrets of Allah. He told he was burnt down in the womb of his mother so at the time of his birth he was born duly burnt and melted and become old before the period of his youth. He told all the creatures are like a boat and he is its sailor and he told that he will alive always in it.
He told Allah given him such a thinking and due to His kindness with which he can observe the whole mankind. He told he spent all his days and nights in this work and for this reason his thinking turned into eyesight and then become light and then become happiness and after it turned into the fear and after this he was reached to such a place where his thinking was turned into the wisdom and then his attention diverted and affection turned towards the mankind then he find his affection was greater than others for the mankind and then he told if it is possible he would die instead of the mankind. On the day of judgement he would settle the accounts of the mankind and those who will be held for the punishments and such punishments should given to him instead of the others.
He told Allah will keep his friends in such a place from where the mankind will not reach to them. If he will explain the least favours of Allah then the persons will declare him as mad and insane one . Whatever he eat, drink , see, hear and whatever Allah created in the universe is not secret matter for him as Allah disclosed all these matters to him. There is agreement of Allah with him that he will be allowed to meet the pious persons and he will not be allowed to look at the un- fortunate. So he will meet the persons on the day of judgement with happiness to whom he already was met in the world. He told once he prayed with Allah to take him away from the world
and then he heard a divine call in which he heard “Oh : Abul Hasan I will keep you in the world so that my beloved persons will see you and those who will not see you then they can establish relations with you even though without seeing you. I created you with My cleanliness so the un-clean persons will not be able to meet and see you.” He told for every worship there is reward for it but the reward of pious persons are not determined and not known and Allah will grant their rewards as per His will and pleasure . So from it is clear that the reward of worship from Allah is great and no worship is not equivalent to it . For this reason the persons should become the beloved of Allah and should engage in the worship of Allah always.
He told he is talking with Allah since fifty years but his heart and tongue is not aware of this matter and for a period of seventy three years he spent his life in such a way that he never prostrate against the Islamic rules and regulations and never followed his soul even for a minute .
He told he spent his life in such a way that his one step was from the empyrean to nether regions and another step was from the nether regions to empyrean . He told Allah told him that if he will go in the court of Allah with sorrow and grief then Allah will grant His mercy on him. If he will present there with indigence and humility then He will make him wealthier and if he will present there without pride then He will make his soul under his control .
He told once Allah presented before him all treasures of the worlds then he told Allah that he will not prefer these things. So Allah told him “Oh :Abul Hasan there is no share of him in the both worlds and He ( Allah) will be there for him in the place of them . ” He told upon leaving the world he did not see
any body and after talking with Allah he did not talk with anybody.
He told the mankind is not aware of his status which Allah granted him. Once he asked one person do you want to meet Khizer ( name of a prophet immortalized by the fountain of life ) and that person told yes so he told him that he was wasted his life of sixty years so he should engage more time in the worship with great attention and do hard work to cover the loss in this matter. Because Allah created Khizer (name of a prophet immortalized by the fountain of life ) and you by leaving Allah you were willing to see the creature. It is obligation for the mankind to leave everything and to approach towards Allah.
My condition is such that when I get His company then I will not desire for the company of the creatures. He told the creatures are unable for his praise because whatever they praise about him is actually he is opposite of it.
He told when he looked upon his personality then he come to know about his annihilation and when he looked upon the annihilation then Allah allowed the observation of His personality. Due to this event he was in the condition of surprise and then he heard a divine call in which he heard for the declaration of personality. So he told “Oh Allah except Yourself nobody could not declare about Your personality. As per the saying of the Quran and its meaning is as follows.
- Shahad Allah inhawu La-Ilaha Allah Alhu “.(There is no god but He that is the witness of Allah)
When Allah widened the way then he walked on the path and in its light for the period of many years and he reached from the infidelity to the proofs of Allah . He told Allah granted him
such a power and capacity with which he can reach in his one step to such places where even the angles could not reach there.
He told he was disgusted due to his pride so he was drowned into the water but he could not drown into it. Then he jumped in the fire but there was no effect of fire on him. To finish himself he started starvation for a period of four months and ten days but he could not died. When he followed humility then Allah accepted it and for this reason granted him higher status but he could not describe about his position in the words.
He told he was stopped on way and examined the deeds of all creatures of the earth and sky and he found all deeds are not useful for him as he was informed about the ownership of the deeds.
At that time he heard a divine call in which he was told ” Oh
: Abul Hasan as the deeds of all creatures are useless in your observation so in the same way the value of all your deeds are useless, nothing and no value at all before Us”.
He used to pray in his hymn ” Oh :Allah I do not have
confidence in asceticism ,worship, knowledge and Sufism as I do not think myself as a learned person and ascetic and Sufi person. Oh : Allah You are alone and in Your kingdom I am low in your all creatures .”
He told those who could not stand silent and concrete as
earth, sky and mountain before Allah so such persons are not called courageous persons. But actually they are called dead as they finished themselves and remember His (Allah) personality . He told pious person is one who should never declare him as pious person because the virtue is attribute of Allah.
He told if one who wants to become the man of miracle then he should eat one time and should do starvation for the period of
three days. And again he should eat for one time and should do starvation for a period of four months. Again for eating for one time and he should do starvation for a period of one year. When there will be power of starvation for a period of one year then one thing will appear by invisible power in such person like snake in his mouth and which will be transferred into his mouth and after that there will be no desire for the food provisions will be required for him.
After hard work of endeavours and starvation when my intestine was dried then a snake will be appeared there . So he prayed Allah that he do not need any source and whatever Allah will want to give him and which should be given to him without any source . So grant him whatever he want directly. After this prayer there was sweetness in his stomach which was like fragrance and which was better than musk and more sweeter than honey . Then he heard a divine call in which it was told that ” We will provide him food provisions in his empty stomach and water will available in his thirsty liver.”
If there was no order as above then he will eat his food and will drink water from such a source which the mankind will not know it. He told when he posess trust other than Allah then he could not have sincerity in his deeds .
When he left the mankind and looked upon Him (Allah ) then without his endeavours he found sincerity.Upon His indifference and observation he found that the knowledge of all creatures is nothing and it is equal to one grain before Allah . Upon observation of His mercy he found that He is great Merciful that all sins of the mankind are nothing before His Mercy and Magnificence . He told he was busy for many years in the surprise in the affairs of Allah and due to this reason his
wisdom was taken away by Allah but despite of this fact the mankind thought him a wise person.
He told if there were no hell and heaven were made by Allah so that it can be find out that how many lovers of Allah are there and also find out the total number of persons who will worship Allah to be free from the hell. He told he used to pray Allah to free the mankind from the worries and troubles and to give their worries and troubles to him permanently and to give him the power to bear such a great burden by him.
He told his cap is on the empyrean and his foot are on the nether regions and his one hand is in the east and other is in the west. Its meaning is that Allah informed him all the affairs of earth , sky, east and west and He ( Allah ) removed all veils for him. He told to reach towards Allah there are many ways as there are many creatures so there are many ways to reach towards Him (Allah) .Every creature will follow its own way as per their capacity and power. He told he followed all ways and he found all ways are busy with its creatures. He told he prayed Allah to show him such a way on which he will not find others except Allah and himself . So Allah was shown him that way. But nobody could not able to follow that way as they do not have the power to cover it.
Its meaning is that those who will want to have the love of Allah then they should endure the troubles and difficulties and follow always sincerity. Because in such condition the sincere persons could found the nearness of Allah than others. He told the courageous is one to whom the world think him an un- courageous . One who is courageous for the world then actually he is not courageous person. He told once he heard a divine call in which he heard that ” Oh: Abul Hasan follow My
commandments because I am ( Allah ) alone who will alive always and who will never face death and I will grant you the eternal life . To keep away from My (Allah’s) prohibited things as My kingdom is very strong that it will never met its end and I will grant you a country for which there will be no downfall for it “. He told when spoken about Wahdiniyat (the belief in the unity of god) then he saw the circumambulation of the earth and sky around him for which the creatures are not aware of it. He heard a divine call in which it was told that ” The creatures are in demand of the heaven from Him (Allah) but as matter of fact they did not thanked Him (Allah) for the grant of the faith.” Its meaning is that without thanks of grace the creatures should not demand for the heaven from Allah because without which there will be no grant of heaven for anybody.
He told every day the learned persons will demand for the more knowledge and the Mystic persons will demand for more mysticism but he will demand every day from Allah such thing which will bring happiness for the Muslim brothers. He told only such persons should meet with him who should know that on the day of judgement he will first recommend the Muslims for the salvation from hell and after that he will proceeded towards the heaven. One who is not having faith in this matter then that person should not come towards him and convey Salam to him.
He told Allah granted him such a thing with which he was died. And after this Allah will give him such a life in which there will be no question of death will be possible. He told if he would say something before the learned persons of Neishapur then they will discontinue their preaching and leave their pulpits. He told he has truce with the creatures and the Creator and there will be no war against them.
He told if he would feel no danger of the creatures then he would express the fact that he was reached the status and level of Bayazid and also he would tell the thing which Bayazid was told to Allah. He told further that he was also reached there where the thinking of Bayazid reached .
He told Allah granted him many positions more than Bayazid
. Because as per saying of Bayazid that he is not traveller and nor local resident. But he (Abul Hasan Qarqani ) told that he is resident of Wahidaniat (the belief in the unity of god) of Allah and he will travel in his oneness. He told from the day when Allah kept him away from his vanity then from that time heaven is desiring for him and the hell is keeping away from him.
He told the status and position which was granted by Allah to him and if from there the hell and heaven will pass then they both will finish there with their inhabitants. He told the creatures would express the things which are inter related with the creator and the creations. But he is expressing the things which he would talk with Allah. He told his parents belongs to the race of prophet Adam (peace be upon him ) so they are called man or Admi (its meaning is from the prophet Adam (peace by upon him) and his status and position is such that where Adam ( peace be upon him) and the man are not found there . He told Bayazid found him alive in all conditions. Once he read the following verse from the Quran and its meaning is as follows.
( (”) Lo! the punishment of thy Lord
is stern. (Sura Al-Burj Verse No. 11) .In this respect he told the punishment of Allah’s is stern for the creatures but his hold of the garment of Allah is also stronger than stern of Allah .He
told in his heart there are such worries of love are there in which no body from the world can not reach there and found its depth and will not understand the situation prevailing and existing there.
He told on the day of judgment Allah will call him to come near to Him and will ask him what he will demand there and then he will request Him (Allah ) to bring the persons who were with him in the world and also he will demand for the persons who visited his tomb upon his death and the persons who heard his name or not. Then at that time Allah will pass commandment in this matter as he (Abul Hasan ) was obeyed His orders in the world so now He (Allah ) will accept his request there. Then due to the commandment of Allah all those persons will be brought there .
So at that moment the prophet will say to him if he want then he will provide a place before him but he will reply to him that as in the world he followed him so here also he will follow him and will be obedient of him there.
Then due to command of Allah the angels will spread a floor of light on which he (Abul Hasan Qarqani) will stood there. The prophet will bring such great pious persons and whose records breaker could not born in the world and in that situation Allah will order him (Abul Hasan Qarqani) to stand against them and then Allah will tell the holy prophet ” Oh: My beloved those persons are your guests but he is (Abul Hasan Qarqani ) My guest of honour.” He told those who heard his sayings or will hear it later then such person’s least position will be that they will be forgiven by Allah on the day of judgment without any accountability .
He told ” Oh : Allah your prophet preached him but he preached all the creations except the holy prophet.” He told on the day of judgment the relations between the creations will be discontinued but his relation of Allah will not be discontinued .
On the day of judgement all prophets will be there on the pulpits of light and the pious person will be there on the chairs of light so that the creations will have a look for all of them there.
But Abul Hasan will sit on the floor of oneness and will look at Allah from there . He told the nearness of Allah will not be found by covering the places and the slaves should return back whatever he got from Allah. Its meaning is that to finish oneself because upon this situation the personality of Allah will be known to them . He told he used to pray Allah not to grant such him position in which there will no existence of his humility except His ( Allah ) presence.
He told the creatures will be away from a such person one who will engage in torments. He told ” Oh : Allah he always used to caused You (Allah) distressed but You are near to him so for it he could not able to express his gratitude in this matter”. ” Oh : Allah he sacrificed all of his things on Your way and also he spent the things belongs to You (Allah). Oh : Allah I pray You to finish my existence so that You only remain”. He told that he passed forty steps and his first step was from the sky to nether regions and regarding other remaining steps he do not know in this matter. He told “Oh : Allah my creation is for You (Allah) so I pray for not holding garment of others. Oh : Allah many persons will prefer prayer and sincerity, Hajj (pilgrimage of Makah and Madina) and Jehad (religious war) , knowledge and shrine work but make me like that person one who will not like others but like You (Allah)
only. Oh : Allah allow me to meet such person one who will call Your (Allah) names with its requirement as its deserved so that he will get benefited in the company of such person.”
He told on the day of judgement there will be one group of martyrs who laid their lives for the sake of Allah. But he will be raise there as martyr and his position and status will be more than the above group of martyrs. Because he was killed by the sword of passion of Allah.
He told he is such a man of pain that his pain will be alive till the end of his life. He told there are many persons who are punctual for the prayers and fasting but the courageous man is one who will spent his life of sixty years in such a way that in his book of deeds nothing should be written and upon obtaining such a great status and position one should remain regretful of Allah and do his efforts with humility.
He told in the Israeli community there were two persons and one was used to be in the prostration for a period of one year and other was used to be in prostration for a period of two years. But one minute’s thinking and observation in the Ummat (nation) of prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) is better than prostration of one and two years.
He told if you will find that your heart is moving towards the tides of the world then there will be fire from it and when you enter into it then you will become ashes and there will arise one tree from that ashes and on that tree there will be fruit of existence and when you eat it then you will be annihilate in the Wahidaniat (the belief in the unity of god). He told Allah created such persons and whose hearts are enlightened with light of Touhid (unity of god) and if all the creations of sky and earth will pass from that light way then it will burn down all such
things. Its meaning is that Allah created such persons who are busy in the worship of Allah and they are not at all interested in any other things.
He told the secret which are in the hearts of pious person are there if they will reveal one of it then the creations of sky and earth will face problems in this matter. He told Allah created such persons also and if they sleep in the blanket but they can watch the movements of the moon and stars. The angels used to take the details of records of good and bad deeds of creatures to the sky and for this they can watch from their blankets. Because Allah cleared all the veils for them due to His kindness and mercy.
He told the friend upon reaching His (Allah) friend will be get lost in the world of engrossment. He told the example of soul is like a cock and its one wing is in the east and the other one is in the west and its steps are in nether regions. He told that man is not good for the friendship in whose heart there is desire for the salvation in it.
He told it is the secret of pious persons that they should not disclose themselves in the both worlds and also Allah will not disclose them to anybody. He told Allah told prophet Moses ( peace be upon him ) that you should not see Him so then who will dare in this matter to look upon at Him (Allah) and by saying Lan Tarani (God’s reply to prophet Moses (peace be upon him) in these words and its meaning is that :Thou shall not see Me (Quran 7:143) and so the tongues of such persons were stopped by Him (Allah) as they want to have look at Him (Allah).
He told Allah kept such burden on the hearts of pious persons that if some of small particles of it will be disclosed to
the creations then they will finished by seeing it . As the Allah himself will look after them so they will be able to bear such a heavy burden. If Allah will not look after them then their parts will be shattered from their bodies and they will become helpless to bear such a heavy burden.
He told when Allah’s pious person will call Him (Allah) then the birds and animals will become silent in this matter and some time when the birds and animals were used to be busy in the remembrance of Allah so there will be fear in the universe and due to this reason the universe will began shaking . There will be three times on the pious person with which the angels will face fear in the following matters.
- On the angel of death upon taking souls of the mankind.
- 2. At the time entries of deeds of mankind by angels Kiraman and Katibeen.( The two angles recording men’s good and bad deeds).
- 3. At the time of questioning in the grave by the angels
Nakireen . (Two the angels questioning man in his grave about his faith ).
He told due to kindness and mercy of Allah voice of prophecy will be given by Him (Allah) to his slaves so when they say something which will be happened at once. He told he did not stopped his endeavours until his belief of his subsistence with Allah was not completed with him. He told he was kept away from the creations then he was come to know that the creations are helpless and not able to do nothing.
He told to spend the life in such a way that the angels Kiraman and Katibeen (the two angles recording men’s good and deeds) should become helpless and the deeds of mankind
should not be disclosed to others than Allah . If you will not spend your life like this then spend your life busy in the nights in the worship of Allah so that the angel Kiraman and Katibeen (the two angles recording men’s good and deeds) should be free from the duty in the nights and throughout the night nobody should know your affairs other than Allah. He told it is least style of life that when the angles Kiraman and Katibeen (the two angles recording men’s good and deeds) will present in the court of Allah and report there that such and such person done good deeds by leaving bad deeds.
He told the happiness and grief of pious persons are from Allah. He told to have relations with Allah other than mankind because the relations are kept with Friend ( Allah ) only as there is no big friend other than Allah. He told Allah given the power to some persons with which they will visit Makkah and returned back from there in one night only and some persons cover this distance in one minute only. He told when Allah will separate men from the creations then that men will be free the thinking of creations and in that situation Allah will grant him His nearness then that person will be away from the creations and it is necessary thing. He told Allah will grant great position to some persons so that they can have observation of all places from that position and some persons will be get great positions and with which they can look the details of Tablet. He told he spent his life in the service of many learned persons but he could not become disciple of anybody because my Murshid (spiritual guide) is Allah.
Some wise person asked him to explain what is difference between wisdom and faith and Marifat (knowledge of Allah) so he asked the person to let him inform first the colour of these
things to enable him to explain the position in this matter . So that person began weeping.
Some persons asked him about the person one who will turn towards Allah . He told after the prophet nobody could not get this position because this position will not be given other than the prophet of Allah.
He told the pious persons should leave the world in such a way that the world should not know in this matter. Due to their attachment with the creations they (the creations) will know about them.
He told the pious person should not talk with the mankind as per their status and position but they should talk as per the position of the mankind. He told some persons will say that they know something but actually they do not know about it.
When they suppose that they do not know nothing then Allah due to his mercy will reveal everything for them and Allah will grants them the heights of Marafat (knowledge of Allah).
He told nobody could know Allah by his wisdom and thinking and for his known knowledge he should wish that his knowledge would have been more than this.
He told the pious persons should approach Allah before death. He told the best patient of heart is one who will become patient in the remembrance of Allah and one who will become His (Allah) patient due to His (Allah) remembrance then he will become healthy. He told for the true worshippers Allah will grant the observation of all such things which are reserved for observation and He will (Allah) also provide them the things for hearing which are good for hearing. He told on the way of Allah
there is a bazaar and which is called the bazaar of brave persons of Mysticism in which there will available beautiful personalities and in such place Mystic persons will reach there and will stay at that place. The details of beautiful personalities are as follows.
- Karamat (Miracle). 2.Attat (Sincerity). 3.Riyazat (Mystic exercise ). 4.Ebadat ( Worship). 5.Zuhad ( Mysticism).
He told the world, religion and luxuries of heaven are such things and one who will like these things then he will be away from Allah and for this reason he will never get the nearness of Allah. So the man should worship of Allah in lonely places by leaving the mankind and in prostrating he should cover the ocean of kindness. He should over look everything except Allah and should get lost in his Wahadaniat (the belief in the unity of god ) and finish his existence . He told there are two names of knowledge which are as follows.
- Zaheri (Manifest }.
- 2. Batini ( Innermost).
The Zaheri (manifest) knowledge relates to the learned person of Zaheri (Manifest) and the Batini (Innermost) knowledge relates to the learned persons of Batini (Innermost). But there is another knowledge which is superior than the knowledge of Innermost and this knowledge relates to the hidden secrets of Allah for
which the mankind and creations have no knowledge at all in this matter.
He told one who will demand for the world and for such person the world will become ruler of him. Those who will leave the world and such person will become ruler of the world. He told Fakir (indigence) is one who is away from the world and religion because these things are least in the position of the Fakir (indigence) and there is no relation of these two things with the heart. He told when Allah will not demand for the prayers before its schedule time so one should avoid to demand the subsistence from Allah in advance.
He told the condition of the person will not be known to the person himself because if he knows the condition then it will not be called as the condition but it will be called as knowledge. He told when Allah wants to grant success to any person from any group and due to the sake of that person Allah will grant forgiveness for the whole group. He told that the claim of learned persons that they are successors of the prophet is not right because in real the successors are the pious persons as they got the knowledge of innermost and they have many qualities of the prophet with them which are mentioned as follows.
1.Indigence and generosity.
- Trust and honesty .
Also the following things of the prophet are available with them.
- They always used to busy themselves in the observation of Allah.
- They think good and bad deeds from Allah.
- They have patience on good and bad thing
- They do not have much relation with the mankind.
- They are always punctual in their lives.
- They do not have fear of the such things with which the mankind have fear in their life.
- They do not have expectation from the such things with which the mankind expect from those things .
So such types of the above things are found in the pious persons of Allah and for this reason they are called the real and right successors of the prophet of Allah. He described the prophet as a shore-less ocean and if one drop of it will come out of it then the whole universe would have been drown into it.
He told despite of your plenty of efforts it is fact that you are not good for Allah and so one should not claim in this matter. Because after its logic your claim will be become false and void. He told we should ask what ever from Allah but do not become the slave of the soul , position and status . Because on the day of judgement there will be enmity among all creations and our enemy is Allah and if He will become enemy then it will be fact that the judgement will not be possible .
He told if you demand such things other than Allah then you should produce the proof of sublime courage with Allah because Allah will grant everything for the people of sublime courage. He told intoxicated persons are those and when they have the drink of love then they will become unconscious.
He told the persons who want to take something to hereafter (another world ) from this world which is suitable there . But
except annihilation nothing is good and suitable there. He told the leader is one who will cover all the ways.
He told we should do at least such remembrance of Allah in which there will be completion of all Shariah (Islamic) laws. And we should have such knowledge with which we can able to know for exhortation and injunction of commandments . Such belief is enough with which we should know that our subsistence is as per our fate and which is reserved for us and it will be available to us. And such Mysticism is enough with which we should be grateful to Allah for the resereved subsistence for us and so we should not demand more than this.
He told if Allah will grant the highest place in the another world to somebody there due to his status and position then he should not desire that his friends will also get such great and superior position like him there. He told if you want to know sky and earth and also want to know Allah from the personality of Allah then you will not be successful in this matter. But with the help of light of belief then you can found Him (Allah) and get him (Allah).
He told to pass from the river instead of the stream and drink khoone jigar (suffer great pains) instead of water and it means to face great pains so that the persons who will come after you can able to know that there was one person who was in deep love was passed from there. He told at the time of remembrance of good deeds there will be a white cloud which will fall from the sky and at the time of remembrance of Allah green colour cloud of love will fall from the sky. But the remembrance of good deeds is grace for the general persons but it is carelessness for the special persons. He told except the following three persons all others are complaining about Muslims.
- Allah never complained Muslims.
- The prophet never complained Muslims.
- One Muslim will not complain the other Musli
He told there are five kinds of journeys which are as follows.
- The journey of the foo
- The journey of the heart.
- The journey of the courage.
- The journey of the loo
- The journey of the finished sou
He told he looked at the empyrean to know the status and position of pious persons of Allah and he found that they are all pious person of indifferent types and such indifference is the cause of their highest position which they got there and such position will be given by Allah when the pious persons will observe the cleanliness of Allah.
He told thousand persons will follow the Shariat (Islamic )
law then out of them one person will get such a great position so the Shariat (Islamic) law will rotate around him.
He told Allah created 99 worlds for the pious person and width of one world is from the east to west and from empyrean to nether regions. The description of about other 98 worlds is very difficult and tough task and there is no capability with anybody to describe about them. He told the example of pious person is like a day light. As day is in need of the sun but for the pious persons there is no need of the sun for them and for the dark night there is need of the moon but the pious persons are not in need of it. Because they possess more light than the moon and sun with themselves.
He told for them the distance of way will be reduced as Allah wanted to guide them. He told Allah will grants light of sight to the hearts of pious persons and in which there will be increase till that sight will not become the complete personality of Allah. He told Allah invites the persons towards Himself and then He (Allah ) will widen the ways for them due to his kindness and mercy to whom He (Allah) likes. He told no sailor would not save his boat from drowning with the help of knowledge . Thousand came over there and already drown there but the personality of Allah remained existed.
He told on the day of judgement when the prophet will go
over to the heaven to inspect the creatures there and he will see one group of persons and will ask Allah that who are these persons?. And how they were reached there. Because this group of persons who finished their lives for the sake of Allah and for this reason they will take over to the heaven in such a way that nobody could see them and found them.
He told there are 1000 goals to reach towards Allah and its

Again it was told that the persons who were passed away from the world and they have their desires that Allah would become their friend but why he did not like such desire in this matter.? Then he told ” Oh : Allah the authorities which you are going to bestow upon him and for this there will be any expedience surely from your side in this
matter because Oh : Allah you never take any decision as per the will and likeness of others.”

He advised the persons to bury him beneath 30 yards of the earth as the land level of his place (Qarqan ) is more higher than the land level of Bustam . And if his tomb will become higher than the tomb of Bayazid Bustami and for this reason it will become a matter of impoliteness and improper thing. So the persons of Qarqani followed his last wish in this matter.

Then he (Abul Hasan) told him that he should not be afraid of the death because he will die twenty years before him and he will be present at the time of his last hours to help him in this matter. So he should not worry with his death. After some days he was recovered from that serious illness.

Aap ke waalid ka naam Ahmad bin Salmaan hai.
Hazrat Baayazeed Bastami rahmatullāhi alaihi ka dastoor tha ke Saal me ek martaba Mazaarate Shohada ki ziyarat ke liye tashreef le jaate.
Jab Hazrat Kharaqan pahunchte to fiza me munh upar uthakar is tarah saans khinchte jaise koi khushboo sungh rahe ho. Ek Martaba mureedeen ne puchha ke ‘Aap kis cheez ki khushboo sunghte hain? Hume to kuchh mehsoos nahi hota.’ Hazrat ne farmaaya ‘Mujhe sarzameen e Kharaqan se ek Marde haq ki khushboo aati hai jis ki kunniyat Abul Hasan aur naam Ali hoga. Aur woh Kaasht-kaari (kheti) ke zariye Rizqe halaal se apne ahlo ayaal ki parwarish karega aur us ko mujh se zyada martaba haasil hoga.’
Aap ne Hazrat Shaikh Abul Hasan Hakkaari rahmatullāhi alaihi se ta’aleem aur faiz haasil kiya.
Aap ke mash’hoor shaagird :
Hazrat Khwaja Abu Saeed bin Abul Khair, Hazrat Abu Ali Husain ibn Seena, Sultaan Mahmood Ghaznawi.

Aap ne apne darwaaze par likh diya tha ke “Jo koi bhi is makaan par aaye use us ke eimaan ke baare me mat puchho magar use khaana khilaao, Kyun ki jise bhi ALLĀH ta’ala ne zindagi di hai wo Abul Hasan ke dastarkhwaan par khaana khaane ka mustahiq hai.”
Ek martaba Aap ke ghar me kuchh mehmaan aaye. Aap ki biwi ne aap se kaha “Ghar me chand roti ke siwa kuchh bhi nahi hai.” Aap ke farmaaya “Un rotiyo par ek kapda daal do aur zaroorat ke mutaabiq nikaalte rehna.” Aap ke farmaan par amal kiya gaya aur sab logo ne pait bhar ke khaana khaa liya. Aap ke khaadim ne jab kapda hata diya to dekha ke ek bhi roti nahi thi. Aap ko pata chala to Aap ne farmaaya “Agar tum yeh galti na karte to rotiya kabhi khatm na hoti.”
Jab Somnath ka Raaja ka zulm badhne laga tab Hazrat Khwaja Sayyed Abul Hasan, Ali Iraqi urfe Haaji Mangroli Shaah ne rahmatullāhi alaihi ne Sultaan Mahmood Ghaznawi ko khat likhkar khabar di.
Zil Qa’ada 416 Hijri (December 1025 A.D.) me Sultaan Mahmood Ghaznawi apne lashkar ke saath Somnath pahunche, Lekin fateh na mili. Sultaan ne kai baar Somnath par chadhaai (hamla) kiya, Lekin fateh na mili.
Aakhir me 418 hijri (1027 A.D.) me unho ne apne peer Hazrat Khwaja Abul Hasan al-Kharaqani rahmatullāhi alaihi ka kurta mubarak mangwaya aur ALLĀH ta’ala se us ke waseele se musalmano ki fateh ki dua ki to ALLĀH ta’ala ne Somnath par unhe fateh ata farmai.
Baad me jab Sultaan Mahmood Ghaznawi Hazrat Khwaja Abul Hasan Kharaqani rahmatullāhi alaihi se mile to Aap ne puchha ke “Mere kurte ka kya kiya?”
Sultaan ne bataaya ke “Maine us ke waseele se dua mangi to ALLĀH ta’ala ne musalmano ko Somnath par fateh ata farmai.”
To Hazrat ne farmaaya ke “Tum ne bahot kam maanga, Agar tum un Kaafiro ke liye eimaan ki dua maangte to in shaa Allāh Somnath ke ilaaqe ke tamaami Ghair muslimo ko daulate eimaan naseeb ho jaati.”
(1) Huzoor Nabi e kareem sallallāhu alaihi wa sallam ke waariṡ wo hi hai jo us ke naqshe qadam par chalta hai aur apne naama e aamaal me kabhi siyaah nishaan nahi banaata.
(2) Soofi wo hai jise din me sooraj ki zaroorat nahi hoti aur raat me chaand ki zaroorat nahi hoti. Asli tasawwuf to kho jaana hai ya’ni khud ke wajood ki zaroorat na ho kyun ki ALLĀH ki zaat ke siwa kisi ke wajood zaroori nahi.
