Urs of Hzrt Usman Harooni (R.A) 2018

 

 

Urs Sharif of Hazrat Khwaja Usman Harooni (R.A)  is on 5th & 6th Shawwal .This is Approx Wednesday 20th June 2018 depending on the Lunar date of your country.

It is  also Panjavi Sharif on this day .. a Monthly Fathia Shairf (Commemoration) for Hazrath Khwaja Usman Harooni (R.A).

 

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.

This approx on: Thursday 7th June 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 20th). On this day It is also the Annual  Urs of Hzrt Imaam Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)
** 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.

Urs sharif of Bibi Sayidah Ayesha Siddiqah (R.A)

 
fazaileayeshasiddiqa
 
 
 
Urs Sharif is on 17th Ramadan 1439
This is Approx: Sunday 3rd June 2018
Bibi Sayidah Ayesha Siddiqah (R.A) was the third lady to enter the house of the Beloved Habib Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him as his wife, and she was the only virgin in the consorts of purity of the Holy Prophet’s Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him house. She was of a tender age when she was married to Allah’s Apostle Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him.
Historical records bear ample testimony to the fact that Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) was a precocious genius and was developing both in mind and body with rapidity peculiar to such rare personalities. This marriage is significant in the history of Islam in so many aspects.
Firstly, it cemented the ties between Sayiduna Rasoolullah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him and his devoted friend Sayiduna Abu Bakr Siddique (R.A) who always stood by him in hour of trial and who sacrificed his all for the cause of Islam.
Secondly, by this marriage, a lady of eminent qualities came under the direct influence of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him at a highly impressionable age, and this provided her ample opportunities to penetrate into the innermost recesses of the sacred heart of the Beloved Habeeb Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him. She shared his company and thus was able to develop her potentialities and refine her taste perfectly in accordance with the teachings of Islam under the direct supervision of Sayiduna Rasoolullah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him.
This young age was in fact very opportune for marriage as it has been clearly shown in the researches of psychoanalysts that much of the emotional of a mature person and most of those seemingly unaccountable leanings, tastes and tendencies comprised in the term idiosyncrasies can be traced to the experience of his or her highly formative age of either later childhood or early adolescence.
Thirdly, all the wives of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him with the exception of Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) were of advanced age and thus could neither share the feelings of the younger generation nor could they properly appreciate their point of view. The difference of age always stood as a barrier between them and the ladies of the younger ages. The only lady with whom young women could frankly enter into conversation and discuss problems without any reserve could be none but Sayidah Ayesha (R.A). Thus, the marriage of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him with Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) at an age when she was at the threshold of puberty was a great necessity, as it was through her that instructions could successfully be imparted to the young ladies who had newly entered the fold of Islam.
Moreover, this marriage struck at the root of a wrong notion that had firmly taken hold of the minds of the people that it was contrary to religious ethics to marry the daughter of a man whom one declared to be one’s brother. The Messenger of Allah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him, with the help of his personal example, showed to the people that there is a great difference between a brother-in-faith and the brother in relation to blood. The marriage, which is forbidden in Islam, is with the daughter of the brother in blood and not with the daughter of the brother-in-faith.
Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) lived on almost fifty years after the passing away of the Messenger of Allah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him. She passed away in the year 58 A.H. in the month of Ramadan and was buried in the sacred graveyard Baqi al-Garqad of Madinatul Munawwara.
Bibi Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) reported that the Apostle of Allah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him said:
 

“I saw you in a dream for three nights when an Angel brought you to me in a silk cloth and he said, ‘Here is your wife’, and when I removed the cloth from your face, it was yourself, so I said, ‘If this is from Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala, let Him carry it out.’”

Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) used to play with dolls in the presence of the Messenger of Allah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him and when her playmates came to her they left (the house) because they felt shy of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him whereas Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him sent them to her. People sent their gifts when it was the turn of Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) seeking thereby the pleasure of Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him .
Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) said:

“The wives of Allah’s Apostle Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him sent his daughter Fatima (R.A) to him. She sought permission to get in as he had been lying with me in my mantle. He gave her permission and she said: ‘Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him ! Verily, your wives have sent me to you in order to ask you to observe equity in case of the daughter of Abu Quhafah.’ She (Bibi Ayesha -R.A) said: ‘I kept quiet’. Thereupon, Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him said to her (Bibi Fatima -R.A ):
 
‘O daughter! Don’t you love whom I love?’ She said: ‘Yes, I do’. Thereupon, he said: ‘I love this one (Ayesha)’.

Bibi Fatima (R.A) then stood up as she heard this from her father and went to the wives of Allah’s Apostle Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him and informed them of what she had said to him and what he had said to her. Thereupon, they said to her: ‘We think that you have been of no avail to us. You may again go to Allah’s Apostle and tell him that his wives seek equity in case of the daughter of Abu Quhafah’. Bibi Fatima (R.A) said: ‘By Allah I will never talk to him about this matter’.
Sayidah Ayesha (R.A)  (further) reported:
 
The wives of Allah’s Apostle Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him then sent Zaynab bint Jahsh (R.A) , the wife of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him , and she was one who was somewhat equal in rank with me in the eyes of the Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him and I have never seen a woman more advanced in religious piety than Zaynab (R.A) , more Allah-conscious, more truthful, more alive to the ties of blood, more generous and having more sense of self-sacrifice in practical life and having more charitable disposition and thus more close to Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala, the Exalted, than her. She however lost temper very soon but was soon calm. Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him permitted her to enter as she (Ayesha R.A) was along with Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him in her mantle, in the same very state when Fatima (R.A) had entered. She said: ‘Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him , your wives have sent me to you seeking equity in case of the daughter of Abu Quhafah’. She then came to me and showed harshness to me and I was seeing the eyes of Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him whether he would permit me. Zaynab (R.A) went on until I came to know that Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him would not disapprove if I retorted. Then I exchanged hot words until I made her quiet. Thereupon, the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him smiled and said: ‘She is the daughter of Abu Bakr (R.A) ’”.
This Hadith gives a clear glimpse of the home life of the Glorious Messenger of Allah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him. The wives of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him were all eminent ladies having deep Allah-consciousness, but they, after all, belonged to the human race and thus, could not completely banish those minor human weaknesses, which are ingrained in the very nature of the fair sex. They were all deeply attached to the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him and every one of them had, therefore, an earnest desire that she should get the maximum love and affection from the Prophet of Allah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him. It was out of this spirit of envy, rather than jealousy, that they put forward this demand. It was a natural expression of their humanly feelings born of their love for the Beloved Habeeb Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him , and not an objection against the attitude and behavior of the “Mercy of the Worlds”. And they could not even conceive of it; and how could they, when all of them had been receiving the most beneficent treatment at his hand?
Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) reported:
 
“When the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him set out on a journey, he used to cast lots amongst his wives. Once this lot came out in my favour and that of Hafsa (R.A). They (Hafsa (R.A) and Ayesha (R.A) ) both went along with him and when it was night Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him used to travel on camel along with Ayesha (R.A) and talked with her. Hafsa (R.A) said to Ayesha (R.A) : ‘Would you like to ride upon my camel tonight and allow me to ride upon your camel and you would see (what you generally do not see) and I would see (what I do not see) generally?’ She said: ‘Yes’. But, Ayesha (R.A) rode upon the camel of Hafsa (R.A) and Hafsa (R.A) rode upon the camel of Ayesha (R.A) and Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him came near the camel of Ayesha (R.A) , (whereas) Hafsa (R.A) had been riding over that. He greeted her and then rode with her until they came down. She (Ayesha (R.A) ) thus missed the company of the Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him and when they sat down, Ayesha (R.A) felt jealous. She put her foot in the grass and said: ‘O ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala , let the scorpion sting me or a serpent bite me. And so far as Your Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him is concerned, I cannot say anything about him’”.
Sayiduna Anas bin Maalik (R.A) has said:
 
“The Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him said that the excellence of Ayesha over women is like the excellence of Tharid over all other foods.”
Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) is one of the four persons (the others being Sayiduna Abu Hurayra (R.A) , Sayiduna Abdullah bin Omar (R.A) and Sayiduna Anas bin Maalik (R.A) ) who transmitted more than two thousand sayings of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him. The Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him referring to her extensive knowledge of Islam is reported to have said:
 
“Learn a portion of your religion from this Humayra (red coloured lady).”
Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) not only possessed great knowledge but also took an active part in education and social reform. As a teacher she had a clear and persuasive manner of speech and her power of oratory has been described in superlative terms. Men and women came from far and wide to benefit from her knowledge.
According to the Orientalist, D.S. Margoliouth, he wrote:
 
“Of the entire number of inmates, Lady Ayesha alone, by force of character and keenness of wit, won for herself a place in the political and religious history of Islam.” [Quoted by Fida Hussain Maalik in his book, ‘Wives of the Prophet’, Bombay, 1989, Page 124]
Pearls of Wisdom by Sayida Ayesha as-Siddiqah
To spend for your guests is not extravagance.Good deeds are to refrain from bad deeds.A believer of truth never becomes disgrace even if the whole World turns against him while a believer in falsehood never gains respect even if the moon comes out on his forehead.Wherever the torch of truth shines it is advantageous to all, and it must not be seen who the torchbearer is.A very good trait of character is to protect your tongue.When the stomach becomes full the faculty of thought becomes weak and wisdom and understanding become mute.Gluttony is the root of all illnesses and abstinence is its remedy.Magnificence is gained in 1% friendship and 99% hard work and physical exertion.

“Whoever is initiated by Us and follows Us and loves Us,
whether he is near or far, wherever he is,
even if he is in the East and We are in the West,
We nourish from the stream of love and give him light in his daily life.” – Hazrat Bahauddin Naqshband (RA) on the Awliya Allah

Birth Name: Abu Yazid Bistami or Tayfur Abu Yazid al-Bustami
Born in: Bostam, Iran
aulia_hazrat-bayuzeed-bastaami-bayazid-bustami-in-bastam-by-dargahawlia-syria
A long time ago there was a young boy named Bayazid Bustami. He was born in Persia, an ancient land of plains, mountains and poetry.
Being the only son of a poor, widowed mother, he was the light of her eyes and she rested all her hopes for the future on him. She dedicated her life to giving him the best she could, but because she was poor, she couldn’t afford much.
As the small boy grew older, she scraped together what money she could and sent him to the local school where he could learn to read and write. While he was there, he would study the Qur’an, Shar’iah, math, Arabic and poetry. He turned out to be an excellent student and he learned quickly.

One day, while he was reading the Qur’an he came across an ayah in which Allah said, “Be thankful to Me and be thankful to your parents.”
Hazrat Bayazid read this ayah a second time and then thought about what it meant. He closed the book and immediately ran back to his mother.

Now because he came home early from school, his mother became worried. She asked him, “What’s wrong, my son? Did you run away from school? Is there something that happened?”
“No, mother,” Hazrat Bayazid answered. “I read an ayah from the Holy Qur’an today that said we have to be thankful to Allah and to our parents. This made me a little worried. I’m not real strong so how can I serve two masters? Mother, either keep me in your service or give me up in the service of Allah.”
His mother paused for a second and smiled. Then she immediately grasped his hands in hers and said, “My son, I dedicate you to the service of Allah. To me, if you serve Allah you’re serving me, too.”
Hazrat Bayazid smiled and returned to school with a new heart for his studies and a new attitude. Everyone noticed the change in him, and his teachers marveled over how he seemed to pour himself into his studies from that day forward.

He began to come to school early to read and left long after all the other students had gone. When his teacher asked him what happened, why he had become so motivated to study and learn, Hazrat Bayazid explained how his mother had released him to serve only Allah. The teacher smiled and hugged the boy firmly.
In time, after he had become a young man, Hazrat Bayazid went out on the road in search of more advanced learning. He traveled all over the Muslim world and attended different colleges and studied with different teachers. He earned many degrees along the way.
After a few more years he settled in the city of Baghdad, which at that time, was the most important city in the Muslim world.
He taught in a small school and went to college at night and never left his desire to master everything he could to be a truly thankful servant of Allah.
One late night he was on his way home when he encountered a rowdy band of drunks on the street. One of them had a guitar and was playing it in a sloppy, annoying way. Hazrat Bayazid wanted to avoid them but they were harassing everyone who passed by. As Hazrat Bayazid walked by them, the leader of the bunch started insulting him in a very nasty way, calling him names and taunting him.
Hazrat Bayazid told the man to stop his foolish talk but this made the drunken man even more angry.
The drunk picked up his guitar, lifted it high over his head and then brought it down, smashing it over Hazrat Bayazid’s head. The guitar shattered into a dozen pieces and blood streamed down Hazrat Bayazid’s blessed forehead. The rest of the drunks paused for a minute and then started yelling and laughing again.
Hazrat Bayazid didn’t say a word and went home in silence, wiping the blood off his head with a handkerchief.
The next day, Hazrat Bayazid gave a basket of candy and a few dollars to his servant and directed him to go to the leader of the drunks and tell him the following words:
“Last night my head was responsible for breaking your guitar. Please buy a new one with this money. And also I found that your tongue was very sour last night. Please remove the sourness of your tongue by eating these sweet candies.”
When the drunken man received the gifts, he was so filled with shame and repentance that he brought his entire rowdy group to Bayazid and begged for forgiveness. He gave up drinking and became a righteous Muslim from that moment onward.
hazrat-bayazid-bastami-shrine-dargah-bastam-by-dargah-awlia-dargahawlia-iran
After a few more years in Baghdad, Hazrat Bayazid again took to the road and travelled in many lands where the people were not yet Muslims. He traveled all over India and brought thousands of people to Islam. News of his spiritual insight and wisdom reached far and wide.
Years passed and when he was a middle-aged man, Hazrat Bayazid received a note from his first teacher, his teacher from the school when he was a boy. It said, “Come to me.”
So Hazrat Bayazid immediately sold everything he had in India and began the long journey back home to Persia. Along the way, huge crowds of people gathered in every town and village he passed through. Everyone wanted to get a glimpse of the famous scholar they had heard so much about.
Then, after a month of traveling, Hazrat Bayazid finally reached the small village school where he had first learned to love knowledge.
His teacher, who was very old by now, told Hazrat Bayazid to sit down in front of him. He paused a moment and then he said, “Hazrat Bayazid, you have fulfilled your promise to Allah. Now go and serve your mother.”
When he heard his mother being mentioned, a rush of feelings overwhelmed his heart and he was filled with an unstoppable desire to see her again.
But he knew a huge crowd was gathering in the center of town in anticipation of seeing him, put on a dark robe with a hood and waited until night had fallen. Then he snuck out of the teacher’s house through a back door and made his way to his mother’s cottage.
Before he could knock on the door, he heard her praying inside. She was saying, “Merciful Allah. I have dedicated my son to your path. It is for You to love him and for You to take care of him.”
Hazrat Bayazid couldn’t hold his sorrow in a moment longer. He burst out in uncontrollable tears and sobbing.
hazrat-bayazid-bustami-shrine-outside-inside-grave-dargah-in-bastam-by-dargahawlia-iran
His mother heard someone crying outside the door and she called out, “Have you come back, my son?”
Hazrat Bayazid replied in a choked voice, “Yes, mother, I have returned. Please, open the door and see your son again.”
The door was opened after a moment and Hazrat Bayazid threw himself at his mother’s feet and cried. She carefully bent down and pulled him up while passing her hands over his head and face. She then said, “I’ve wished for nothing more than to see your face again, my son, but, alas, you have come too late. For I can see no more

His mother had become blind. She would never again be able to look upon the face of her long lost son, the one she gave to Allah so many years before. From that moment forward, Hazrat Bayazid vowed to be thankful to his mother for the rest of his life and for as long as she lived, he never left her side.

When Bayazid died, he was over seventy years old. Before he died, someone asked him his age. He said: I am four years old. For seventy years I was veiled. I got rid of my veils only four years ago.”

He died in 874CE and is buried either in the city of Bistam in north central Iran, or in Semnan, Iran. Bayazid lived a century before Abul Hassan Kharaqani. Attar Neishapouri has mentioned in his book Tazkiratul Awliya that Bayazid had spoken about the personality and state of Shaikh Abul Hassan Kharaqani with his disciples while passing from the village of Kharaqan, almost 100 years before the birth of Shaikh Abul Hassan.

The story of a section of Jews accepting Islam:

One day Hadhrat Bayazid Bastami rahmatullah alayhi while in meditation, saw himself in a synagogue dressed as a Jew. At first he was confused, but when he kept on seeing the same vision over and over again, he decided to enact it. So, he dressed himself as a Jew and went to their synagogue.
When the Jews and their scholars were present, their chief Rabbi stood up to speak. But when he stood up, his tongue became stuck and he could not talk. After he had been standing quietly for some time, the Jews started to complain. The Rabbi said, “In this gathering there is a follower of the Prophet Muhammed (sallalahu alayhi wassalam) and I cannot speak because he has come to examine us.”On hearing this, their anger raged like wildfire and they asked the Rabbi to give them permission to kill this follower of the Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu alayhi wassalam). The Rabbi replied, “He cannot be killed without proof, so we must talk to him peacefully and respectfully and then we can decide.”The Rabbi then said, “Oh follower of Muhammad (sallalahu alayhi wassalam). For the sake of your Prophet please stand up in your place. If you can remove our doubt about Islam then we shall accept Islam, but if you can’t, then we shall kill you.” On hearing this, Hadhrat Bayazid rahmatullah alayhi stood up and gave permission for them to question him.

The Rabbi then said, “Listen! the key to paradise is:
There is no God worthy of worship except Allah and Muhammad peace be upon him is His Messenger!”
On hearing this the whole gathering accepted Islam and Hadhrat Bayazid rahmatullah alayhi returned giving thanks to Allah.

Love can make every heart warm.

Once filled or surcharged with love, we become a changed person. We being to realize that in a sense, we are all one. Whom to harm?

By harming others we harm ourselves. By inflicting injury on others, we inflict injury on ourselves.

love removes false notions of prestige. Power disappears. Hatreds cease.  Enmity and Jealousy go into retirement.

In other words, once we get love, which is another way of saying that once we enter the realm of wisdom, we divest ourselves of intellectual pride and superiority complex. We attain childlike innocence. We have no will of our own. We are thus, freed from inner conflict and tension.

Let us remember that the pernicious influence of preconceived notions prejudices, narrow-mindedness, racial, communal, and religious distinctions, and differences of caste and colour, self conceited opinion and outworn beliefs stand in the way of true wisdom.

The heart, filled with love, gives love to all. It inspires love. The result is that we get wholesome, ennobling, and warming influences of love, in return from those, whom we inspire with love. This leads to the elimination of social conflicts, which are detrimental to the growth and development of a healthy society.

 

Love can make every heart warm.

 

It is the cheapest and the best form of central heating. But, for this, we have to exert a little. Love is a much prized virtue. It requires nerve-racking vigilance, and a rare attachment all the time. Love then cannot and should not be practised at a certain time or on certain occasions. It is a whole time job.

Love without service is lame. 

Love without obedience is deaf.

Love without surrender is mute.

Love without sacrifice is sick.

Love without self abnegation is feverish.

And

Love which asks is a deception.

Love which asserts is a show.

Love which is not constant is a fraud.

And

Love which give everything without the hope of reward is healthy. 

If we wish to be loved, then let us love others first.

Love is the gate of Citadel of Harmony.

Love is the key of life.

 

Sufi Saints have yearned for it. Sufi Mystics have longed for it. Shaikh Farid Ud-Din Attar, an eminent Sufi mystic poet and a Sufi saint, has expressed in a unique way his desire to get one particle of love. He says:

 

” Let idolater get idolatry and let the pious the piety gain.

One particle of pain (of love) let Attar attain.”

 

It is said that to love is to live. If elaborated further, it means and implies that not to love is to meet a living death.

 

There is a story in the East. There was a person called Majnu and there was a girl called Laila. Laila was not beautiful. Her complexion was dark. Majnu fell in love with her. At first, the people thought that it might have been a mere rumour. But, when it was confirmed, they asked Majnu one day: “How is it that you have fallen in love with an ugly and dark girl?”

Majnu promptly replied: “Had you seen Laila with my eyes, I am sure, you would not have said so. If you see Laila with my eyes, you will find her the most beautiful girl in the world.” And, in a way, Majnu ws right. Beauty is a relative term. What may appear beautiful to one may appear ugly to another, and the reverse is also true.

One day it so happened, that Majnu saw a dog in the street. He showed utmost respect to the dog. People thereupon said to him:

“Whatever you say may be true. But I had seen a similar dog in the lane of Laila. It may or may not have been the same dog. But, I paid respect to the dog, thinking that the dog might have been the same, at least the dog bore a resemblance to the dog that I saw in the lane of Laila.”

At one time, Laila decided to distribute charity. Beggars flocked to her door. Majnu, on hearing it. disguised himself as a beggar. The beggars presented their begging bowls, and Laila threw something in their begging bowls. The beggars were proceeding one by one. The turn of Majnu came last. He also presented his earthen begging bowl. Laila recognised him. She took the begging bowl, and threw it on the ground. It was broken into pieces. Laila left and Majnu was still standing there, laughing and merrymaking. The beggars assembled there, seeing Majnu so jolly, happy and gay, were surprised. They had seen with their own eyes a few minutes before that, Laila had broken his earthen begging bowl, and had given him nothing. The beggars could not resist the question. They asked him:  “You have got nothing. Your begging bowl is broken into pieces. But in spite of all this you are so happy. You are laughing, smiling and dancing with joy. What happened to you?”

Majnu, who was at that time,full of joy, replied: “You are right. I am very, very happy. My begging bowl was snatched and broken into pieces by Laila, it si true.  It is also true she gave me nothing in charity as she has given to you all.”

The beggars with one voice said: “you are mad, indeed. Is this the cause to be happy? You should be ashamed rather.”

Majnu then addressed them thus:

“You say, I got nothing but I have got everything. At least, Laila looked towards me.”

 Love serves as a teacher

We learn so many invaluable lessons at the feet of this teacher. It is the way to perfection. We come to acquire and extol the virtues of sobriety, sincerity, self-effacement, patience, humbleness, meekness, devotion, service, sharing and sacrifice. Silence and Seclusion are the two sweet fruits of the tree of love.

Love confers concentration

 

The wandering mind is set at rest. Concentration is of great importance. Without concentration is of great importance. Without concentration, no great work can be done. Everybody wants to forget himself for sometime. How is it possible? It is possible through love. Love, then, is of great importance.

Lord Krishna says thus:

” Many are the means described for the attainment of the highest good, such as love, performance of duty, self-control, truthfulness, sacrifices, gifts, austerity, charity, vows, observance of moral precepts, etc. “But”,

He further adds,

” Of all I could name, verily, love is the highest-love and devotion that make one forgetful of everything else, love that unites the over with me…”

 

Study of history, and records of the world point out that love has been perennial fountain, giving to its votaries the Elixir of Life.

Time and circumstances stand with folded hands before the supreme sovereign-Love!

What is the source of love? It is not difficult to find out. The needs of love constitutes the source of love.  Without Love, the world would have been abject and poor ad a dull place, without the spirit of altruism. Humanism is also manifestation of love in a different form. Without love, there would have been no social legislation. Social justice would have remained a mere dream. Utilitarianism is a product of love.

 

Love according to the mystics, may be real or non-real. The love of God is, indeed, real. The mundane or non-real love is a stepping stone to the love of God.

There have been very many methods to achieve the Nearness of God. Prayer, fasting, charity, self-conquest, mortification, alms giving, ascetic practices, seclusion, silence, sitting in secluded places, meditation and remembrance, etc. are some of the practices. But, the truth is that, what all the aforesaid practices collectively can do or are capable of doing, that or more, love alone does.

Love is a gift of God, given to those, whom He has chosen for His Grace.

 

The heart is purified by Love

Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Hassan Chishty, an outstanding and towering Sufi saint of the subcontinent of Indo-Pakistan and Bangladesh says thus:

 

” The hear of he lover is furnace.  Whatever comes in it is burnt,

for there is not fire greater in its intensity than the fire of love”

 

The love of God implies surrender to the Will of God. Surrender means to have no will of your own. Surrender to the Divine will is a source of joy.

Love is itself a type of prayer. It has no fixed time. It is conducted all the time.

 

” Love is a cordial prayer, which the lovers have come to acquire.”

 

Love of God liberates us from the fear of the changing accidents of fate.

If we have love, that is enough. Then let us:

Take love as best and leave the rest. 

*******

Fasting may be good and prayer may be sound, 

With tenets of religion better to be bound, 

Chaplet in hand and talisman in neck, round, 

But by something else is the Beloved found.

Urs of Bibi Khadijah-tul-Kubra (R.A.)

 
10th Ramadan 1439 Hijri
This is Approx: Saturday 26th May 2018 (Sunday 27th In Ajmer sharif).
(Depending on Lunar date of your country).
Bibi Khadijah-tul-Kubra (R.A.) the most beloved wife of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) and the mother of Bibi Fatima-al-Zahra(R.A),the only daughter of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) passed away on 10th Ramadan in Makkah three years before the Hijrah of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) from Makkah to Madinah.
Bibi Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) provides a complete beacon of light for today’s women.
 
She was a wealthy woman and big trader of the Arab but she devoted her entire riches to the cause of Islam and the Holy Prophet (SAW). She faced every difficulty with forbearance for the sake of Allah and His Prophet (SAW).

Bibi Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) was a person who devoted herself to worship and remained consistent in the face of difficult times despite being rich. She embraced Islam at a time when no other person was ready to do so.

Bibi Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) gave unflinching support and encouragement to the Holy Prophet (SAW) when people would create difficulties for him. She possessed excellence character and was known as Tahira for her piety. She said that if we wanted to put our lives on the path of piety and good works, we would have to receive light from the life of Hazrat Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) because her life is an ideal for our guidance.

Bibi Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) was an honest, brave and generous woman who stood by the Prophet of Islam (SAW) through thick and thin. It is the privilege and honour of Bibi Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) that she gave birth to the Prophet’s daughter Bibi Fatima (RA). After her death, the tears would come to the eyes of the Holy Prophet (SAW) whenever her name was mentioned. The Holy Prophet (SAW) would remember her services for the cause of Islam and pay her tribute.
.
Holy Prophet (SAW) would feel aggrieved and pained due to sufferings created by the infidels, her sight would be a source of comfort for the Prophet (SAW). He (SAW) would forget his pain and difficulties and become happy the moment he would meet her. Bibi Sayyida Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) loved the Holy Prophet (SAW) most dearly, provided all the means for the ease, happiness and comfort of the Holy Prophet, so much so that she put all her resources at the disposal of the Prophet (SAW). She sank her likes and dislikes in the likes and dislikes of the Holy Prophet (SAW).
Allah Almighty sent greetings for Bibi Sayyida Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) during her life at the hands of Hazrat Jabrail (AS) and gave her glad tidings of a beautiful palace in Paradise. The Holy Prophet (SAW) would often remember Hazrat Khadija (RA). There can be no greater argument in favour of her status and prestige in the eyes of the Holy Prophet (SAW) than this that they did not enter into marriage with any other woman during the former’s life.
As long as Bibi Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) lived, the Holy Prophet (SAW) did not contract second marriage in her presence
The words the Holy Prophet (SAW) expressed to describe her exemplary sacrifices represent his love for her. He (SAW) said:

“By God, Khadija believed in me at a time when people rejected me. Khadija gave me place when people refused to accommodate me with them and Khadija (RA) gave me children.”
