The Making of a Mystic

The Vital things that go to make a mystic.

You may have heard the controversy about the poet. Some say that a poet is born. There are others, however, who assert that a poet is made. It does not matter much, whether a poet is born or a poet is made, he is a poet still. The same or rather similar controversy ranges round the mystic. Some say that a mystic is born, others say that a mystic is made. In other words, the question is whether it is a gift, or an acquisition. All gifts come unasked for. To acquire a thing means and implies to depend or to rely upon one’s own labour.

Instead of delving deep into this controversy, it is better to say that in the making of mystic Divine Grace and personal effort do count a great deal. Without Divine Grace, it is difficult to be constant and firm.

A humble Mystic despite his limited knowledge and resources, cherishes hopes of a big and bright future. And he is in a way right, for the simple reason that, he comes to possess both the urge to the pursuit of truth, and the spirit of endeavour, struggle, sharing and sacrifice.

He is aware of the role, played by those in search of truth, and he is alive to the contributions made by the segment of the mystic fraternity. He responds in his own way.

He makes optimum use of optimism. The optimism enables him to utilize the available resources for quick and speedy moral and spiritual growth.

Knowledge leads him to the fountain of Bliss. The Holy Prophet Mohammed (Peace be upon them) has enjoyed the acquisition of knowledge in these words:

“Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave.”

As regards the importance of knowledge, he lays down thus:

“The ink of the scholar is more holy than the blood of martyr.”

Mysticism is essentially practical in nature. It cannot be learnt in any institution, whether it be a school, college or university. How will you explain white to a person, who has not seen the colour white. You may give any number of definitions. You may explain it at length. But your definitions and description will not carry sense to the person who has not seen white colour. But, once you show him the white colour, he will be convinced. There will be no room left, then, for discussion.

Let me give another example. There is a person who has not tasted sugar. He asks you as to what the taste of sugar is. You begin to describe it to him. When you say that it is sweet, he asks you what is sweet. Then you say that it is not saltish. He does not understand even them. To end the discussion, you just give him a teaspoon full of sugar. He tastes it. And then you ask him as to what is the taste of sugar. He cannot explain it, though, after tasting sugar, he knows the taste of sugar. Demonstration is better than discussion.

Mysticism is best learnt in the company, and in the service of a spiritual guide and teacher who leads and guides spiritual disciples. His word is law to the disciples.

There are two types of people in the world. Their outlook is different from one another. Their approach to the problems of everyday life is different. They look at the world from two different points of view. There is a person to whom the world is a comedy and there is another person to whom the world is a tragedy.

The world is not a multi-storied building. It is one storied and neither is it complex nor complicated. It is a one storied building, which is simple, and having no mystery about it. It is the outlook of the person which counts. What you think of the world, that the world becomes for you.

Only those enjoy inner joy, inward peace, and inner harmony, who lead a positive type of life. They invite misery, who have a negative approach to life. 

The fruits and flowers of mysticism are the best gifts that history has offered to mankind.

The mystical ideals placed before mankind have conferred upon them the invaluable virtues or gifts of charity, devotion, trust in God, patience, perseverance, fortitude, constancy, bravery, courage, hope, belief and faith.

The Doctrine of Grace, though apparently simple, is powerful in its effects. The recipient of Grace comes to acquire a state, which may be termed as fixed, definite, invincible, everlasting and permanent.

The mystics share among themselves, a similar fundamental identical spirit of piety, purity, charity, hospitality, sacrifice, service and self-surrender. This is the spirit with which, those, who are favoured with Grace are animated and inspired.

The inner state of love, humbleness, meekness, kindness, humility, faith, trust in God, extinction of self, and concern for the welfare of others is peculiar to the condition of the soul of a person, who has received the gift of Grace.

 

The Holy Prophet Mohammed (Peace be upon them) was asked as to what was best in man. He replied:

“An amiable disposition.”

“When you speak, speak the truth; perform your promise; discharge your trust; commit not fornication; be chaste; have no impure desires; withhold your hands from striking, and from taking that which is unlawful and bad……”

And,

 “The best of God’s servants are those who, when seen, remind one of God, and the worst of God’s servants are those, who carry talks about to do mischief, and separate friends and seek for the defects of God.”

Once the Prophet was asked:

“What actions are most excellent?”

He replied:

“To gladden the heart of human being, to feed the hungry, to help the afflicted, to lighten the sorrow of the sorrowful, and to remove the wrongs of the injured.”

The Holy Lord Jesus Christ says thus:

“Every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into fire. Therefore, by their fruits. ye shall know them.”

He distinguishes the good man from the bad man thus:

  “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil; for of the abdundance of heart, the mouth speaketh.”

To be a mystic, it is necessary that passions should be controlled and subdued. To overcome passions is to win the battle of life. Lord Buddha says:

” When a tree is burning with fierce flames, how can the birds congregate therein? Truth cannot dwell where passion lives.”

A mystic is expected to be indifferent to pain and pleasure. Lord Buddha says thus:

 “The good renounce everything, The saintly speak not with craving of desire.

Touched by happiness or pain, The wise exhibit neither elation nor depression. “

Serenity of mind is a much coveted and much prized acquisition. But, serenity of mind cannot be attained without self-control. Thus says Lord Krishna:

 “The man of self-control on the other hand, moving among sensory objects, with his senses under restraint, and free from attachment and aversion, attains serenity of mind.”

The effect of serenity of mind, according to Lord Krishna is this that:

“When serenity is attained, there comes an end to all sorrows. Verily, the wisdom of the man of serene mind soon becomes steady.”

 

The life of a mystic is a hymn of praise and service of glory. The pulls and pressures do not mar his harmony. He takes them as a passing phase. He treats them as a passing phenomenon. To him, pleasure is fleeting and pain is not lasting. The mystic counts for nothing every pain, and he forgets every sorrow.

Superstitions, intolerance, bigotry, fear orthodoxy, narrow-mindedness, ignorance, of basic principles of life, hatred, malice, worry, anger and anxiety are not conducive to spiritual progress.

Fear, worry, anger and anxiety, have, in fact, ruined more lives than war, pestilence, famine, fire or flood have done at any one time. They shut the door of free flow of life forces.

Anger causes illness, and is highly detrimental. Thus says Lord Krishna:

” From anger comes delusion, which results in loss of memory. The loss of memory causes destruction of discrimination, and from the ruin of discrimination, the man perishes.”

Courage, on the other hand, has redeemed mankind. The peace of a mystic is never disturbed. If he is praised, he does not take any notice of it. If he is abused, ridiculed, persecuted, or humiliated, even then, he is smiling.

Silence and seclusion confer peace and inner harmony. It is not wise to waste time in idle chatter or frivolous talk. Seclusion has is own reward.

A mystic lives for others. He advocates change in society through humanistic approach. To live for others means and implies that one has found the means of getting infinite inspiration, courage, strength, joy and happiness.

The mystic precepts, programmes and principles, betoken an interest in better living and high thinking.

It is not only necessary to love one another, but it is also imperative to help one another.

Knowledge should be shared with those who are deprived of the wealth of knowledge. Darkness should be dispelled. Ignorance is also darkness. In such an atmosphere of jarring influences, superstitions and antisocial actions, it flourishes and thrives.

Patience is a great virtue. It is not enough to be patient with all, but it is better to be patient under all circumstances, situations and crises of life.

The folly, the rude behaviour, the mistakes of omission and commission, stupidity, barbarity, vanity and selfishness of others should not be taken seriously. They should have no impact. The people are people. They should be forgiven. Forgiveness is still a power to be reckoned with. Guru Nanak Ji says thus:

” Those who make truth their fasting, contentment their place of pilgrimage, divine knowledge and meditation their ablutions, mercy their idols, and forgiveness their rosary, are foremost in God’s favour.”

Act and fact are not to be taken into account, Love is potent and powerful enough to change and transform life.  Hope is a treasure. If it is lost, everything is lost. Hope give stimulus and serves as a pick-me-up. Hope has been termed as:

” The balm and life blood of the soul.”

 

To lose hope is to be deprived of life forces. Loss of hope implies loss of faith and loss of belief. Hope enables one to win the battle of life. Hope is an armour which shields an individual from permanent inaction. Hope is the exercise of skill to win the game of life. To the mystic, it is a perennial source of inspiration.

Meditation, if rightly conducted, is capable of giving peace and serenity, Concentration is a blessing. Intuition and inspiration are gifts.

Control of the mind requires exercise of will. Happiness itself is a state of mind and happiness depends upon the state of mind.

Lord Buddha says:

    ” Elevate the mind, and seek sincere faith with firm purpose; transgress not the rules of kindly conduct, and let your happiness depend not upon external things, but upon your own mind……”

Control of thoughts requires utmost skill. Dead thoughts, bad thoughts, and negative thoughts should be driven out and replaced by positive thoughts. Thus, thought of hatred should be replaced by thought of love, and thought of revenge should be replaced by thought of forgiveness.

Happiness is self-earned. But, who can be said to be happy? According to Lord Buddha:

 

  ” Happy is he, who has overcome selfishness; happy is he, who has attained peace, and happy is he, who has found the truth.”

Kindness is a distinguishing trait of the character of developed soul. According to the Holy Prophet Mohammed (Peace be upon them):

 

” Kindness is a mark of faith and whoever hath not kindness hath not faith.”

 

The antagonistic nature in mind and heart is a deterrent to spiritual progress. Hatred and evil should be met with love and goodwill. By acting thus, the effect of evil is to a great extent neutralized. To meet hatred with hatred and to meet evil with evil is to fortify and strengthen the forces of evil, and to intensify its effect.

Control of tongue forms part of the discipline of the way of life pursued by the mystic. It is not wise, then, to blame,condemn, criticize or abuse others. Gentle speech, the looks of friendly eyes, the sweet sonorous voice, and the love that never falters are enough to give life a magic touch.

Right use of money is a sign of developed social sense, but, love of money cannot be justified under any circumstance. Why be a slave? Why not be a master? The eminent mystic Maulana Jalal Ud-Din Rumi says:

” Break the chains, and be free, O, son! How long wilt thou be a slave to silver and gold.”

Neither do the mystics subscribe to utterly irreconcilable value-system, and nor do they operate on totally different wavelengths.

Mysticism represents the minimal effort possible in the process of man-making.

Mysticism is another name of character formation. Mysticism is regeneration of mind.

Self- Surrender implies to have no will of your own. The will to will the Will Divine is the core of mysticism.

Ekisvis sharif , Shawwal 1439H , July 2018

21st Shawwal 1439 Hijri.
This approx on: Friday 6th July 2018
(Depending on Lunar date of your country).
On every twenty-first of the Lunar Month in Ajmer Sharif, at the Shrine of Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) a  highly inspiring programme of Fathia-e- Hazrat Imaam -E-Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) is celebrated at a specific demise at the shrine in Ajmer Sharif Dargah. This is called “Eikisvi Sharif” (Meaning 21th).
** Who was Hazrath (His Eminence) Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) ??? ***
Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib ; 13th Rajab, 22 or 16 BH – 21st Ramaḍān, 40 AH; was the cousin and son-in-law of the final prophet Muhammad (PBUT), ruling over the Islamic Caliphate from 656 to 661. A son of Abu Talib, Hazrath Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) was also the first male convert to Islam. Sufis consider Hazrat Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) the fourth and final of the Rashideen (Rightly guided Caliphs).
His father was Abu Talib and his mother was Fatima bint Asad, but he was raised in the household of Prophet Muhammad (PBUT), who themselves were raised by Abu Talib, Muhammad’s (PBUT) uncle, and Hazrat Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu)’s father.
When prophet Muhammad (PBUT) reported receiving a divine revelation, Hazrat Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) was the first male to accept his message, dedicating his life to the cause of Islam.
Hazrat Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) migrated to Medina shortly after Prophet Muhammad (PBUT) did. Once there Prophet Muhammad (PBUT) told Hazrat Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) that God had ordered him to give his daughter, Fatimah, to Hazrat Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) in marriage.
Hazrat Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) was appointed Caliph by the Companions (the Sahaba) of Prophet Muhammad (PBUT) in Medina after the assassination of the third caliph, Uthman ibn Affan.

714th Urs of Hzrt Amir Khusro (R.A) 1439H -2018

*** Urs of Hazrath Amir Khusro (R.A) ***
This is on   18th of Shawwal 1438
Approx: Tuesday 3rd July 2018
However the Urs is Celebrated from 16th to 20th Shawwal i.e. From 1st to 5th July 2018. The Dargah sharif is in Nizamuddin Aulia -New Delhi-India.

Ab’ul Hasan Yamin al-Din Khusro (R.a), usually known by his pen name as Amir Khusro (or Amir Khusro), is a greatly loved composer of poetry, song and riddles from India. He was born in northern India. His father was of Turkish descent but born in Balkh, Afghanistan, the same region that gave birth to Jalaluddin Rumi. Khusrau’s mother was from Delhi. In 1206 Hazrat Amir Khusrau’s father migrated from transoxiana to delhi but settled in Patiali ( modern Uttar pradesh).
Amir Khusro (R.a) was a Sufi and disciple of Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia, Mehboob e ilahi (R.a). By the order of his Pir/Sheikh/Spiritual mentor and guide, he developed Urdu language and was famously known as “father of urdu language”. Soon it became the tongue of Sufis both oral and in written forms. Urdu replaced persian language which was used for centuries for administrative work and for bussiness purpose.
Hazrat Ami Khusro (R.a) is often called the “father of qawwali music” — the ecstatic devotional Sufi music of India and Pakistan. He is also credited with the invention of tabla drums, the two hand drums played throughout the Indian subcontinent.Hazrat Amir Khusrau (R.a) was a classical poet and composer who served as court poet to several Delhi sultans.
His songs are still widely sung by Sufis and the devout, in every Sufi qawwali or in sama, around the world. Especially in India and Pakistan.
Hazrat Amir Khusro (R.a)reat Sufi, a wealthy merchant who once exchanged all his wealth for a pair of His Holiness Sultan-ul-Mashaikh shoes, an intellectual gaint of many languages, an artist, a prolific author, a genius musician who invented the ‘sitar’, a versatile composer and a true devoted “Mreed/disciple” of Holiness. He was “All-in-One” type of highly amazing mixture of Divine gifts
Hazrat Amir Khusro (R.A) was the son of Amir Alachin a Turk from Laccheen. His actual name was Saifuddin Mahmood Shamsi. At the invasion of Gengiz Khan he migrated from his native place Kesh near Samarkand to Balkh. Saifuddin was the chieftan of Hazara. Shamsuddin Iltamish the King of Delhi welcomed them to his capital. He provided shelter to the dislodged princes artisans, scholars and rich nobles. Saifuddin was among them.
It was around 626/ 360 A.H/1226 A.D. In 1230 A.D he was granted afief in the district of Patiali (in Etah District-Uttar Pradesh).
He married to BiBi Daulat Naz, who bore him three sons and one daughter. Yaminuddin (Khusro) was one among them born at Patiali, presently known as Hazrat Amir Khusro Nagar in District Etah (U.P.) in the year 652-653 A.H/1252-53 A.D. Yaminuddin’s (Khusro) father Saifuddin was mostly engaged in battles, and was killed in 660 A.H/1260 A.D. Yaminuddin or Khusrau was an intelligent child.
Poetry came to him at the early age of eight. He wrote his first diwan of poetry “Tuh’fatus-saghir” in 1271 A.d.In 1272 at the age of 19 years, Amir Khusrau’s First job was a royal court poet in the with King Balban. He was a royal coutier in more then 7 different Kings,Governors of his time. In the same year 1325 A.d, when Hazrat Nizamuddin aulia (R.a) left this world, soon after 6 months Hazrat Amir khusrau (R.a) also followed his sheikh and left this word with these words:
It is written in books that when Hazrat Amir Khusro, went to see His Holiness Hazrat Syed Nizamuddin Aulia (R.A) for the very first time. It is said that young Amir Khusrau (R.a) went to His Holiness khanqah, but did not entered and remained at the door by remarking, “I shall select my “Peer/Spiritual guide” myself, and if it is bestowed with Divine Power he will converse with me even from distance.” Thus sitting at the door he composed:

Tu an Shah-e-ke bar aiwan-e-qasrat.
Kabutar gar nashinad baz garded.
Gharib-e mustanande baradar amad.
Be ayat andar un ya baz gardad.
(You are such a mighty King that if a pigeon sits on your palace, it turns into a hawk. An outsider and a needy person has come at your door, please let him know whether he should come in, or go away).
His Holiness who had supernatural powers sent him the following verse in reply:
“Biya yet andarun marde haqiqat,
Kibama yak nafas hamraz gardad,
Agar ablah buwad an mard nadan,
Azan rahe ki amad baz gardad.”
(The person who knows the truth may come inside so that we may exchange divine secrets between us for a moment. If that person is ignorant, then he should return on the same path from where he has come here.)

Hazrat Amir Khusro (R.a) immediately got up and ran to His Holiness and fell on his feet and wept! His Holiness accepted him as his disciple (murid) and gradually the two became inseparable and attached to each other.
Love is deep rooted in human nature. Every Soul has a natural inclination towards another soul. Love in fact, –beautifies the soul, and beauty of the soul resides in love for humanity. Love, the Sufis believe is greater than religion. Love is the essence of all creeds. Every worshiper worships God out of Love. Love enslaves him. The true majestic welcomes love whatever its guise. One who has a perfect insight beholds God in everything.

“Gori sovay sej par, mukh par daaray kes,
Chal Khusrau ghar aapnay, saanjh bhayee chahu des.”
“The fair maiden rests on the wreath (of roses),
Her tresses covering her face,
Let us, Oh Khusrau go back now,
The dark dusk settles in four corners.”

The photo’s above show

The Chillah of Hazrat Khwaja Usman Harooni (R.A)

Behind the Chillah of Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Hasan Chishty (R.A), the Chillah of Hazrat Khwaja Usman Harooni (R.A)(Usmani Chillah) stands with its beautiful building which is surrounded by hills and looks out across the Anasagar lake.

Within the Usmani Chillah compound are buried the holy relics of Hazrat Khwaja Usman e Harooni (R.A) , brought from Mecca in 1935 AD, by Nawab Gudri Shah Baba III.

Khwaja Usman Haarooni (R.A)

They were the Spiritual Master/Guide/Murshid of Hz. Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A)

Khwaja Usman Harooni was born in Haroon, which is in Iran. According to some, he was born in 526 AH (1131 AD) and according to others, he was born in 510 AH (1116 AD). He is also known by his nicknames as Abu Noor and Abu Mansur.

When he was rather young, he came in touch with an absorbed mystic (majzub) by the name of Chirk. This association with Chirk brought about a significant transformation in his life. As a result, the material world lost its charm for him and he decided to embrace a higher moral and spiritual life.

Khwaja Usman Harooni went to meet Hazrat Haji Sharif Zindani, a renowned mystic and saint of the Chishti Order, with a request to be enrolled as his spiritual disciple. Khwaja Haji Sharif Zindani found him to be a fit person and accepted the request, by placing a four-edged cap upon the head of Khwaja Usman Harooni.

He then told him that the four-edged cap implied the following four things:

First is the renunciation of this world;
Second is the renunciation of the world hereafter;
Third is the renunciation of the desires of the self;
Fourth is the renunciation of everything other than God.

Khwaja Usman Harooni spent over thirty years in the company of his spiritual guide. During this period, he was engaged in ascetic practices and prayers. As time passed, he gained many spiritual accomplishments. He was then asked by his spiritual guide to move on and spread the Gospel of Truth.

Travels
Khwaja Usman Harooni undertook many tours and travels to preach the Gospel of Truth. In the process, he visited many countries and cities. Among them are prominent Bukhara, Baghdad, Falooja, Damascus, Mecca and Madina. During the course of his travels, he performed the Hajj, or the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.

In almost all cities, he enjoyed the company of renowned sufis and accomplished dervishes. And while on way to Oosh, he met Sheikh Bahauddin of Oosh. And when he reached Badakshan, he met a saintly man who was one of the attendants of Hazrat Junayd of Baghdad.

He reached Baghdad once again, and there he stayed for a while. During all the travels, he was accompanied by his close and dear spiritual disciple, Khwaja Moin-ud-din Hasan Chishti, who carried his tiffin basket.

After a while, Hazrat Usman Harroni visited India, during the rule of Sultan Altamish.

Death
Khwaja Usman Harooni breathed his last on 5th of Shawaal in the year 617 AH (1220 AD). His blessings are still invoked by thousands of people belonging to every strata of society and every school of thought. While his tomb lies in Mecca, there is also a symbol of his strength and source of his blessings at the Usmani Chilla at Ajmer.

Message and teachings
According to Khwaja Usman Harooni, a great man is one who is endowed with virtues like contentment, sincerity, self-abnegation, self-sacrifice and above all, spirit of renunciation. He said that the ego in a man was an enemy, as it did not allow him to think rationally, act wisely and live happily. He emphasised that unless a man loves human beings, it is impossible for him to love God.

His advice was simple and his message was as simple and that was “Live”.

To exist is one thing but to LIVE another. To exist means to merely breathe, but to live means to keep the welfare of fellow beings uppermost in priority. To live a good life requires a serious effort on one’s own part. No exterior agency, legislation or act can make the man a moral being. Inner discovery is very important.

To help his disciples live a better life, Khwaja Usman Harooni gave discourses at times to guide them towards a better path. Of his many teachings, prominent are:

  • Once the Friend becomes your friend, the whole universe becomes yours. Then it is necessary that you should become unmindful of everything else except the Friend, should ever be with Him and should follow Him faithfully.
  • According to him, the faithful is one who keeps three things dear to his heart: mendicancy, illness and death.
  • It is best to not weep or wail in times of difficulty. In fact, according to the witness of Hazrat Abdullah Ansari, Holy Prophet Mohammed has laid down that the one who weeps and wails in times of trouble and tribulation invites the curse of God upon himself.
  • The one who feeds the hungry is dear to God. God fulfils a thousand wants and frees such a person from hell-fire.
  • He who gives food to a dervish becomes free from all sins.
