HIS POSITION IN THE SILSILA: Hadrat Asad al-Din Abu Mahfuz Shaykh Ma’roof Ibn Feroz al-Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho is the ninth Imam and Shaykh of the Silsila Aaliyah Qadiriyah Barakatiyah Razaviyah Nooriyah.
BIRTH: Hadrat Ma’roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho was born in Karkh.
NAME: His name is Asad al-Din and is famously known as Ma’roof Karkhi and Abu Mahfooz.
HIS FATHER: His father’s name was Feroz. [Safinat al-Awliyah]
EDUCATION: He attained all his knowledge under the watchful eye of Hadrat Imam Ali Rida Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho. [Tadhkirat al-Awliya]
HIS EARLY LIFE: Initially, he was a non-Muslim, but even as a child, he had great love for Islam. He used to always spend his time in the company of Muslim children, and often talked to his parents about accepting Islam. His father was not pleased with this, and enrolled him to study under a Christian Priest. The first question the priest asked him was,
“Tell me my son, how many people are there in your family?” He said, “Myself, my father and my mother.” The priest then said, “Very well, now say Esa Alaihis Salam is the third god of three (trinity).” Hadrat Ma’roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho says, “Even during my time as a non-Muslim my heart did not accept to say what he commanded me to. When I refused to say this, he began to beat me severely. The more he beat me, the more I rejected his teaching. He finally became weary of me and asked my father to imprison me. I was thus locked in a room for three days and every day, I was given one bread, which I did not even touch. When I was taken out, I ran away. As I was the only child to my parents, they were very sad and they sent a message to me saying that I should return to them and I would have the right to accept whichever faith I wished, and that they too will accept the same faith. I then went to Hadrat Ali Rida Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho and accepted Islam at his hands. I then went home with this most valuable gift of Islam, and alHumdulillah, my parents also accepted Islam.” [Tadhkirat al-Awliya, Page 221]
SHAYKH-E-TARIQAT: He became mureed of Hadrat Habeeb Raa’ee Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho and was blessed with Khilafat from Hadrat Habeeb Raa’ee Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho , Hadrat Ali Rida Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho and Hadrat Dawood Taa’ee Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho.
HIS TEACHERS: He studied under the care of Hadrat Ali Rida Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho and also attained education from Hadrat Imam al-Aa’zam Abu Hanifa Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho . He attained spiritual training in the care of Hadrat Habeeb Raa’ee Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho .
HIS EXCELLENCE: He was a very pious personality and one of the most distinguished Aarifs of his time. He also served many great personalities such as Hadrat Dawood Taa’ee Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho , who also blessed him with Khilafat. He used to call out the Adhan with true love, and when he would reach the words Ash hadu An Laa Ilaaha illa-Allah, the hair on his body would stand up and his entire beard would become stiff and he would begin to tremble to such an extent in the fear of Allah, that it seemed as if he would fall to the ground.
He would spend lengthy nights in the Masjid making ibaadat, Istighfaar and weeping in the Court of Allah. Hadrat Sirri al-Saqti Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho say, “Whatever I have attained, is through the Sadqa of Hadrat Ma’roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho .”
Sayyidi Abdul Wahab Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho says, “I have not seen anyone who divorced himself from the world, like Hadrat Ma’roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho . His excellence is such, that even his blessed grave is a means of attaining blessings.” [Kashf al-Mahjoob]
HIS HABITS AND CHARACTER:He possessed deep love for the poor and the orphans. Hadrat Sirri al-Saqti Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho says, “I once saw Hadrat Ma’roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho gathering dates on the day of Eid, so I stopped and asked the reason for this. He said, ’That young boy is crying because all the other children have new clothes and he has nothing new on Eid day. I thus, decided to collect some dates, sell them and then buy something for him, so that he is kept busy playing and does not feel uncomfortable on the day of Eid.’” Hadrat Sirri Saqti Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho says, “I said, Huzoor there is no need for you to do this, I will make sure he gets something on Eid. I then took the boy with me and bought him a new set of clothes. After I did this, a Noor (light) entered my heart, which caused me great pleasure and my condition became very different.” [Masaalik as-Saalikeen, Vol. 1, Page 287]
ALWAYS IN WUDHU:Once his wudhu broke, so he immediately made tayammum. Those who saw him do this said, “Huzoor! The river Tigris is right in front of you. Why did you make tayammum?” He said, “It is possible that I may pass away by the time I reach the river Tigris”
HIS ABSTENTION FROM THE WORLD:Once one of Hadrat Ma’roof Karkhi’s Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho friends asked him the following, “What is it that has caused you to abstain from the world and from the creation of Allah, and remain in seclusion, remembering Almighty Allah? Is it the fear of Death and the grave, or the fear of Hell, or the enthusiasm of attaining Jannat?” Hadrat Ma’roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho said, “O My Friend! You discuss such minor things. What are all these worth in front of the creator Almighty Allah? All these are but humble subjects of Almighty Allah. Once you taste the pleasure of his closeness, then you will not think of any of the other things (you have mentioned).”
KARAMAAT:Hadrat Ma’roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho is also a Sahib-e-Karaamat Wali. He has performed many charismatic marvels, of which only a few are being discussed. Once there was a bandit who was captured by the Governor and sentenced to being hanged. As per the command of the governor, the bandit was hanged and died due to hanging. His body was still hanging from the noose, when Hadrat Ma’roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho passed by. When he saw this scene, he was very troubled, and began to make dua for forgiveness of the deceased. He said, “O Most Compassionate, Most Merciful! This person has attained his punishment for his actions in this world. O Allah! If you forgive him and bless him with respect in Deen, there it shall cause no shortage in Your Treasures of forgiveness.” Immediately an unseen voice was heard saying, “Whomsoever prays the Janazah Salaah of the man on the noose, shall attain an exalted status in the hereafter.” This voice was heard by the people in the entire town. On hearing this voice, people in town gathered quickly. They removed him from the noose, and gave him proper ghusl and kaffan. Then with much respect, they prayed his Janazah Salaah and buried him. That night a man dreamt that it was the Day of Reckoning, and the man who was hanged, was dressed in the best of clothing and was present in the ranks of the Namaazis. He asked him, how he received such excellence and the man replied, “Almighty Allah accepted the dua of Ma’roof Karkhi and pardoned me.” [Masaalik as-Saalikeen, Vol. 1, Page 288]
Hadrat’s uncle was the Governor of the city. Once he was passing through the jungle, when he saw Hadrat Maroof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho sitting on the ground eating bread and there was a dog sitting not far away from him also eating bread which he had thrown to it. His uncle saw this and said, “Why are you having your bread so close to the dog?” On hearing this, Hadrat Ma’roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho looked up and saw a bird flying in the sky. He commanded it to come and sit on his hand. The bird perched itself on his hand but out of respect and modesty, it covered its face and eyes with its wings. Hadrat said, “See, Everything is modest before a man who is modest before Allah.”
Hadrat Ma’roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho and some of his disciples were passing by the River Tigris, when they saw a group of youth who were engrossed in openly committing sin. On seeing this, some of Hadrat’s disciples requested that he make dua for their destruction, so that they evil habits do not pass over to others. Hadrat asked them all to lift their hands and say Aameen to his duas. He then said, “O Allah! Like you have given them the luxuries and freedom of this world, bless them with freedom and luxury in the hereafter.” Everyone was amazed at his dua. He then said, “Do not be hasty. Wait a while and observe.” The disciples saw that after a while, the youth saw Hadrat Maroof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho and immediately broke their musical instruments and and threw away their alcohol. They all began to weep and came to Hadrat and repented sincerely at his hands. Hadrat then looked at his disciples and said, “Did you see, that which I wished for was fulfilled.”

GEMS OF WISDOM:Some of the words of great wisdom that Hadrat mentioned are:
1-There are three signs of a true man, to fulfill ones promise, to praise without a motive and to give without being asked to give.
2-Protect the tongue from self praise, like you protect it from sinning.
3-He who is not a faqeer, is not a man of tasawwuf.
4-Close your eyes from all angles even if there is something in front of you.
5-Love is not attained through education and training, but is bestowed by Allah.
6-The solution to hardships and difficulties is to keep it hidden.
7-Even though an Aarif does not keep the bounties, but he is always engulfed by it.
8-Without deeds to hope for paradise is a sin. Without the completion of your sunnah to wish for intercession is a betrayal and boastfulness and without being subservient to have expectations of mercy is ignorance and foolishness.
9-Those that are hungry for wealth will never attain complete satisfaction.
10-To elaborate on a topic that benefits nobody is signs and proofs of being astray.
11-Just as you find it distasteful to listen to bad, so too you should safeguard yourself from singing praises.
12-Whenever the creator wishes well upon his servant he opens the doors of good deeds upon him.
13-Close your eyes to everyone especially never ever look with ill intent towards anybody.
14-Love is such a thing that cannot be shown or taught.
15-When you forsake this World, leave behind everything for if you have in your heart but even an atom of what belongs to the World then even in prostration you should not be able to forget it.
16-Whatever afflicts you from misfortunes and calamities its success is in its secrecy?
17-Open shirk is devotion to speech and hidden shirk is to rely on the creation.
18-Humbleness is when you meet anyone then regard that person as better than you, whether he be big or small, an ‘Alim or a Jahil (ignorant) or a Muslim or a Kafir.
19-An intelligent person is he who would do on the first day that which he would do on the third day when he is struck by misfortune.
20-It had been asked, “What is the remedy for the troubles of the World?” It was said: “Stay far away from the creation and be close to the creator.”
21-It has been said a dervish never is greedy for anything. If somebody gives without asking them he never refuses. When he takes he never hoards or stores.
22-A woman’s mentor is her husband, in the search of truth although he himself is not a seeker of the truth.
23-If anybody betrays or cheats me in the name of ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala then I will accept the betrayal.
24-Even if you see an innovator of religion fly in the air then too you should never accept him.
25-Even if a pious person is found committing a sin then too it does not become lawful or permissible.
26-The destruction caused by associating with the rich are beyond the boundaries of writing, safeguard yourself! Safeguard yourself!!
27-Knowledge is male while action is its opposite i.e. female. Religion is obtained by doing work in the World.
28-The person who does a good deed with the intention of rewards in the hereafter is a merchant. The person who does a good deed because of the fear of hell is a slave, just as a slave out of fear of a whipping continues to work. The person who does a good deed for ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala alone is noble and free.
29-To associate with a sinner is to sanction his sins, and to sanction sins is equivalent to committing it.
30-Worship is useless without firm belief.
WISAAL SHARIF: He passed away on a Friday or Saturday, on the 2nd of Muharram, 200 Hijri. After his demise, Hadrat Muhammad bin Abul Hussain Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho says, that he saw Hadrat Ma’roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho in his dream and he asked him how Almighty Allah had treated him. He said, Almighty Allah pardoned me, not because of my piety but because of what I heard from Hadrat Samaak Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho in Kufa, when he said, ’He who leaves all ties and turns towards Allah, then Allah Almighty Allah sends his Mercy towards him and he turns all his servants in his direction.’ I followed this advice of his and turned completely towards Allah, and with the exception of the Khidmat of Hadrat Ali Rida Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho I left everything else.
Hadrat Sirri al-Saqti Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho says, “I dreamt that Hadrat Ma’roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho was seated totally absorbed in the love of Allah, under the Arsh and Almighty Allah said, ‘O Angels! Who is this?’ the Angels said, O Allah You are All Knowing. There is nothing hidden from You.’ Almighty Allah said, ‘This is Ma’roof Karkhi who is drowned in My love and closeness and until he does not make my Deedar he will not regain his consciousness and neither will he gain contentment without my Deedar.'”
MAZAAR SHARIF: His Mazaar Sharif is in Baghdad Sharif. Hadrat Sirri al-Saqti Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho says, “When you are faced with any difficulty, then say, “O Allah! Assist me through the Sadqa of Ma’roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho .” All your problems shall be solved (inshaALLAH).
Hazrat Abu Mahfooz Asad-ud-deen Ma’aroof al-Karkhi rahmatullāhi alaihi :
Sultaan e Salaateen e Mashaa’ikh.
Aap ki wilaadat 132 Hijri (750 A.D.) me Karkh, Baghdad (Iraq) me hui.
Aap ke waalid ka naam Firoz hai.
Aap ke waalidain Nasraani (Christian) the. Aap ne bachpan me hi muslim bacho ki sohbat me rehkar Islaam ki haqeeqat ko jaan liya.
Hazrat Farqad Sabakhi rahmatullāhi alaihi ki ta’aleem se jab aap ne apne waalid ko Islaam apnaane ke baare me bataaya to unho ne aap ko ek paadri ke paas bhej diya. Us paadri ne jab aap se kaha ke “Kaho, Khuda teen me se hain.” Tab aap ne inkaar kiya aur kaha “Nahi, Khuda sirf ek hai.” Paadri ne kaha “Tumhare pariwar me kitne log hain?” Aap ne kaha “Main, mere waalid aur meri waalida.” Paadri ne kaha “Jis tarah tum teeno ek pariwaar ka hissa ho usi tarah Hazrate Eisā bhi khuda ke pariwar ka hissa hai.” Aap ne kaha “Yeh mumkin hi nahi.” Yeh sunkar Paadri ne aap ko pitna shuru kiya. Magar pitne ke baad bhi har baar aap ne yahi kaha. Paadri ne aap ko un ke waalid ke paas bhej diya.
Aap ke walid ne aap ko 3 din tak ek kamre me qaid karke rakha. Roz aap ko khaane ke liye roti di jaati magar aap ne use khaaya nahi. Jab unho ne kamra khola to aap bhaagkar baahar chale gaye. Aap apne waalidain ke eklaute bete the. Is liye unho ne aap ko paighaam bheja ke “Tum waapas aa jaao aur tum jis mazhab ko apnaana chaaho tumhe ijaazat hai.”
Aap Hazrat Imaam Sayyed Ali al-Riza ke paas gaye aur Islaam me daakhil hue. Phir aap jab ghar aaye to aap ke waalidain ne bhi Isalaam apnaaya.
Aap ne Hazrat Imaam Ali al-Riza, Hazrat Imaam e aazam Abu Haneefa, aur Hazrat Daawūd al-Taai rahmatullāhi alaihi se ta’aleem haasil ki.
Aur Hazrat Habeeb Reyi rahmatullāhi alaihi se Tasawwuf ki ta’aleem haasil ki.
Hazrat Khwaja Daawūd al-Taai rahmatullāhi alaihi ki bahot waqt tak khidmat ki.
Aap bahot parhezgaar, muttaqi aur Aarif billāh the.
Aap puri raat masjid me ibaadat aur istighfaar me guzaarte aur khauf e khuda se rote rehte.
Aap azaan dete to jab aap ‘Ash’hadu al Laa ilāha ill-Allāh’ par pahunchate to aap ke badan ke tamaam baal khade ho jaate, aap ki daadhi sakht ho jaati, aur is tarah kaanpne lagte ke jaise gir jaayenge.
Ek baar Aap ke ek shaagird ne aap se puchha “Aisi kaun si baat hai jo aap dunya se aur logo se parhez karte ho aur tanhai me ALLĀH ke zikr me masroof rehte hain? Kya maut ke khuaf ki wajah se ya Qabr ke khuaf ki wajah se ya dozakh ke khauf ki wajah se ya jannat ki khwaahish me?” Aap ne farmaaya “Dost! Tum bahot maamooli cheezo ki baat kar rahe ho. Ye sab cheeze ALLĀH ta’ala ke aage bahot maamooli hain. Jis ne ek baar tum ALLĀH ta’ala ki qurbat ki lazzat paa lo to phir dusri cheezo ke baare me soch bhi nahi sakte.”
Aap hamesha ba-wuzu rehte the.
Ek baar Aap ka wuzu toot gaya. Aap ne foran Tayammum kar liya. Waha maujood logo ne aap se arz kiya “Huzoor! Aap ne tayammum kyun kiya haalaanke Darya e Dajla (Tigris) bilkul aap ke saamne hi hai?” Aap ne farmaaya “Yeh bhi to mumkin hai ke main darya e Dajla tak pahunchu us ke pehle mujhe maut aa jaaye.”
Aap bahot sakhi aur raham dil the. Hamesha logo ko madad karte rehte the.
Hazrat Sirri al-Saqati farmaate hain “Ek baar eid ke din maine Hazrat Ma’aroof al-Karkhi ko khajoor chunte hue dekha. Maine Aap ko is ki wajah puchhi to Aap ne farmaaya ke : ek chhota bacha ro raha hai kyun ki dusre bacho ke paas achhe kapde hain aur us ke paas achhe kapde nahi hai. Main chaahta hu ke kuchh khajooren jama karke unhe bechkar us bache ke liye kapdo ka intazaam karu. Taaki woh bhi dusre bacho ke saath khush hokar khele. Maine arz kiya : Huzoor! Aap ko ye sab jahemat uthaane ki zaroorat nahi. Main us bache ko apne saath le jaata hu aur us ke liye achhe kapdo ka intazaam karta hu. Jab main us bache ko apne saath lekar gaya aur use naye kapde diye tab maine mehsoos kiya ke mere dil me me ek noor daakhil hua jis se mujhe behad khushi mehsoos hui aur mere haalaat badal gaye.”
Ek baar Aap apne shaagirdo ke saath darya e Dajla se guzar rahe the tab sab ne dekha ke jawaano ka ek giroh gunaaho me mubtila tha. Aap ke chand shaagirdo ne Aap se un ke liye bad-dua karne ke liye kaha taake dusre log aise gunaaho ki aadat se mehfooz ho jaayen.’ Aap ne sab ko dua ke liye haath uthaane ke liye aur dua ke baad Aameen kehne ke liye farmaaya. Phir Aap ne dua ki ‘Aye ALLĀH! Jis tarah tune in ladko ko dunya me aish o aaraam diya hai usi tarah aakhirat me bhi khush haali ata farma.’ Ye sunkar sab logo ko ta’ajjub hua. Aap ne farmaaya ‘Jald-baazi mat karo, sabr rakho.’
Kuchh der baad jab wo ladke qareeb aaye aur Hazrat ko dekha to sharminda hokar apne mazaamir tod diye aur shaarab ki botal bhi phenk di. Aur Aap ki khidmat me rote hue tauba karne lage. Aap ne apne shaagirdo se farmaaya ‘Tauba karne waalo ke liye aakhirat me bhalai hai. Is tarah tum aur wo log dono pareshaani aur nuqsaani se bach gaye.’
Ek baar ek daakoo ko Governor ke hukm se phaansi di gai. Hazrat Ma’aroof al-Karkhi waha se guzre to aap ne us murda daakoo ko phaansi ke takhte par dekha. Aap ne ALLĀH ta’ala se dua ki ‘Aye Rahmān, Aye Raheem! Is shakhs ko us ke gunaaho ki saza dunya me mil gai hai. To us ki maghfirat farma de aur use deen me bhalai ata farma kyun ki us se tere khazaana e bakhshish me koi kami nahi hogi.’ Foran ghaib se ek aawaaz aai ‘Jo koi is shakhs ki namaaz e janaaza padhega jise phaansi di gai hai, use aakhirat me aala maqaam ata kiya jaayega.’ Yeh aawaaz pure shaher me sab logo ne suni. Aur saher ke log waha jama ho gaye aur us shakhs ko ghusl diya aur use kafan dekar us ki namaaz e janaaza padhi aur use dafn kiya.
Us raat ek shakhs ne khwaab me dekha ke Roz e mehshar wo shakhs jis e phaansi di gai thi wo umda kapde pehankar namaaziyo ke saath hai. Us ne us shakhs se puchha ‘Tum ne ye martaba kaise haasil kiya?’ Us ne jawaab diya ‘ALLĀH ne Hazrat Ma’aroof al-Karkhi mi dua ko qubool farmaaya aur mujhe bakhsh diya.’
Aap Hazrat Habeeb Raa’i rahmatullāhi alaihi ke mureed aur khalifa hain.
