Wali (Aulia)

♦ Wali ka ma’ana hai Dost.

››Auliya Allāh ALLĀH ta’ala ke wo Mo’min Saaleh Muqaddas bande hote hain jo Rab ke mehboob aur muqarrab wa pasandeeda hote hain jinko ma’arifat e ilāhi aur qurb e ilāhi ka ek khaas darja mila hai.

›› Wilaayat ki 3 qisme hain :

[1] Wilaayat e Fitari – Jo paida’ishi wali Allāh hote hain.

[2] Wilaayat e Kasabi – Jo apni ibaadat, riyaazat aur zohado taqwa se Allāh ke wali bante hain.

[3] Wilaayat e Wahabi (Ataai) – Jo kisi ki dua se wali Allāh bante hain (Kisi Wali Allāh ki ya Ahle bait Alaihissalaam /Aal e Rasool ki ya Peer ki ya Waalidain ki dua se).

›› Auliya Allāh har zamaane me hote hain aur qayaamat tak hote rahenge.

›› Ba’az Auliya Allāh Wilaadat (paida’ish) se hi zaahir hote hain, ba’az kuchh arse ke ba’ad aur ba’az wisaal (dunya se parda farmaane) ke baad zaahir hote hain.

›› Wilaayat ke bahot se Darjaat hote hain :

1). Ghaus

2). Qutub

3). Nuqaba

4). Awtaad

5). Abraar

6). Abdaal

7). Akhyaar

Ghaus Wilaayat ka sab se a’ala darja hai.

›› Duniya mae 1 Ghaus, 3 Qutub, 3 Nuqaba, 4 Awtaad, 7 Abraar, 14 Abdaal aur 300 Akhyaar hote hain.

Jab kisi Akhyaar ka wisaal hota hai ya us to ALLĀH ta’ala kisi Mo’min Saaleh ko Akhyaar banaata hai. Jab kisi Abdaal ka wisaal hota hai to Akyaar me se kisi ek ko Abdaal banaata hai. Jab kisi Abraar ka wisaal hota hai to Abdaal me kisi aik ko Abraar banaata hai. Kisi Awtaad ka wisaal hota hai to Abraar me se kisi aik ko Awtaad me banaata hai. Jab kisi Nuqaba ka wisaal hota hai to kisi Awtaad ko Nuqaba banaata hai. Jab kisi Qutub ka wisaal hota hai to Nuqaba me se kisi aik ko Qutub banaata hai aur Jab Ghaus ka wisaal hota hai to Qutub me se kisi ek ko Ghaus banaata hai.Aur in ki muqarrar ta’adaad utni hi rehti hai.

›› Har ilaake ke Abdaal ki kuchh khaas zimmedaari hoti hai jaise Baarish barsaana, Rizq taqseem karna aur Balaao ko door karna.

Hazrat ! Yeh baccha kon tha ?

Ek martaba Imam ul Hind Hazrat Shaykh Abdul Haqq Muhaddis Dehlwi QuddisaSirruhu (d. 1052 AH/ 1642 CE) ki khidmat mein Ek bohut barday Alim e Deen mulaqat ke liye tashreef laey, toh Hazrat ne unse musafah (hand shake) kiya aur barabar (besides) bithaya.

Guftugu shuru hui, isi asna mein, aik nau-umar (young age) bacha (kid) aya jo bosidah (old ragged) kaprday zaebtan (worn) kiye huey tha. Usko dekh kar Hazrat Shaykh Abdul Haqq Muhaddis Dehlwi Saheb ehteraman (in respect) kharday hogaey aur jabtak woh bacha chala na gaya Aap kharday (standing) rahey.

Hazrat ka is tarah ehteram mein kharday hona Maulana ko kuch nagawaar sa guzra. Pucha: “Hazrat! Ye bacha kaun tha?” Aap ne Farmaya, “Aal e Rasool hai (yani, Syed hai),” SallallaahuAlaihiWaAalihiWaSallam.

Maulana ne pucha ke,”Hazrat Ek Alim e Deen Afzal/Superior hai ya Ek Aal e Rasool hai? SallallaahuAlaihiWaAalihiWaSallam

Hazrat Muhaddis ne barda mudallall (full-proof) jawab diya, farmaya, “Maulana! “Main Aap se aik sawal poochta hoon ke, Aap ne abtak kitney Alim banaey?” Maulana ne farmaya: “Taqreeban sattar (70) Ulama merey shagird hokar farigh (graduate) huey hain, yani sattar (70) Ulama main ne banaey hain.”

To Hazrat ne pucha, “Syed kitney banaey?” Ye sawal sunkar Maulana khamoosh hogaey, to Hazrat ne farmaya, “Maulana! Aap isi se andazah karlein ke, ‘Alim to banaya ja sakta hai, aur Syed sirf wohi ban sakta hai jisey Allah Ta’ala banaey.'”

Maulana ne phir aik sawal pucha ke, “Agar koi Syed bey Amal ho jaey to kiya uska ehteraam Wajib hai?”

Hazrat ne Maulana se sawal kiya ke, “Quran e Majeed mein kitni Ayaat aisi hain jin par Amal nahin kiya jata, ya Ayaat matrukah (discarded) hain?”

Maulana ne kaha: “Kaiy Ayaat mansookh (abrogated) hain,” Hazrat ne phir sawal kiya ke “kiya in Ayaat ko Kalam e Paak se khaarij (remove) kardiya hai?” Maulana ne kaha, “Nahin balke Quran e Majeed mein shamil hain kiyun ke Allah Ta’ala ka kalam hai, aur un Ayaat ka ehteraam bhi Farz hai, hum sab unko choomte hain, aankhon se lagatey hain.”

Hazrat Muhaddis Saheb ne farmaya: “Ayse hi bey-Amal Sadaat ko bhi Aal e Rasool SallallaahuAlaihiWaAalihiWaSallam samajh kar ehteraam karo, Baqi raha unka Amal, to woh unka apna muamlah hai.”

Sufi Silsilaa kab Wajood mae aaya

“Sayyeduna Siddiq-e-Akbar RadiAllahu Ta’ala Anhu Aaqa SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam ki Ziyarat keliye hazir hue. Ju he andar dakhil hue to dekha ke Sayyeda Aaisha Siddiqa aur 2 (na baalig) Ansari ladkiya (jo peshewar gaane waali nahi thin) daff bajakar Ansar ke bahaduri ke kalaam padh rahi thin. Unki taraf mutawajjah hogaye aur dusri simt nahi dekha jaha Aaqa SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam bhi Bistar par Tashreef farma they. Udhar dhyan nahi gaya, ju he dakhil hue to dekha ke wo daff baja rahi hain aur nagma gaa rahi hain, taarikhi, sakafati, paakiza kalimat. Ummul Momineen Hazrat Aaisha Siddiqa Salamullahi Alaiha bhi baithi hain. Sayyeduna Siddiq-e-Akbar ne dekhte he Unko kaha: RasoolAllah ke Ghar me shaitani mizmaar baja rahi ho?

Sakhti se jo daanta to wo ghabra ke chup kargayin aur Hazrat Aaisha Siddiqa RadiAllahu Ta’ala Anha bhi khamosh hogayin ke Walid-e-Girami hain.

Ye baat jab keh chuke to us waqt tak Unhone Aaqa SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam ki taraf nahi dhyan kiya tha ke Bistar pe Kaun leta hai. Aaqa SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam Chadar odhe, jaagkar khamoshi se lete hue they aur jaag rahe they. Jab Unhone Sayyeduna Siddiq-e-Akbar RadiAllahu Anhu ke sakht aur tambeeh bhare kalimat sune to Aaqa SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam Mutawwajah hue aur farmaya:

“Ya Aba Bakr! Lee kulli qaumin Eid wa haza youmu Eidina!”

“Har qaum ki ek Eid hoti hai aaj Hamara bhi Eid ka Din hai!”

Sayyeduna Siddiq-e-Akbar RadiAllahu Ta’ala Anhu khamosh hogaye bus Hadees-e-Pak ka mazmoon yahape khatam hogaya. Riwayat hai Sahih Bukhari aur Muslim ki Muttafaq Alaih Jiska Mazmoon yahapar khatam hogaya. Isme se 3 nikaat Fawayadul Hadees me se unko ek do do jumle me bayan karta hun jo isme se akhz kiya.

Sayyeduna Siddiq-e-Akbar RadiAllahu Ta’ala Anhu ne aake jo sakhti se mana kiya, to is Amal-e-Abu Bakr Siddiq se Tariqa Naqshbandiya wujood me aaya! Unke Amal se Naqshbandi Tariqat wujood me aayi.

Aaqa SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam jo khamosh mana kiye bagair khamosh Tashreef farma they aur kuch nahi farmaya tha khamosh Lete they, Unki Khamoshi ki Sunnat se Tariqa Qadriya wujood me aaya!

Aur jab Sayyeduna Siddiq e Akbar ne sakhti se mana kiya aur Aaqa SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam ne farmaya “Lee kulli qaumin eidun fa haza youmu Eidina”, jab Tauseeq farmadi to isse Tariqa Chistiya wujood me aaya!

..:: Permissibility of Celebrating Urs in Islam ::..

Meaning of the word “URS” from Sahih Hadith

The literal meaning of Urs is wedding, and it is for this reason that the bride and bridegroom are called ‘Uroos’.

Word Urs in Sahih Hadith

The date of demise of the Friends of Allahعزوجل and Buzurgs is called Urs because, whih the angels who question in the grave (Nakeerain) test the deceased and find him to be successful,they say, “Sleep like a bride who will not be awakened by anyone except for the person who is most beloved to her.”

Reference : [Mishkaat, Baabu Ithbaatil-Qabr]

Because these angels have called them ‘Uroos’ on that date, it therefore becomes the day of ‘Urs’,

Another reason is because, on this day, the angels will reveal the beauty and splendor of Rasoolullahصلی اللہ علیہ وسلم and ask him, “What did you say about this man?” He will reply, “He is the Uroos (adorned personality) of all creation. The entire creation has attained splendor through him.” Meeting the beloved is the day of ‘Urs’, and it is for this reason that the day is called Urs.

Celebration of Urs proven from Sahih hadith and Sunnah of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)

Let me quote the arabic hadiths again From tafseer ibn e khateer
,
فيدخل فيسلم ثم ينصرف، رواه ابن جرير. ورواه ابن أبي حاتم من حديث إسماعيل بن عياش، عن أرطاة بن المنذر عن أبي الحجاج يوسف الألهاني قال: سمعت أبا أمامة، فذكر نحوه. وقد جاء في الحديث أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كان يزور قبور الشهداء في رأس كل حول، فيقول لهم: { سَلَـٰمٌ عَلَيْكُم بِمَا صَبَرْتُمْ فَنِعْمَ عُقْبَىٰ ٱلدَّارِ } وكذلك أبو بكر وعمر وعثمان

Translation : The Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to go to the graves of the martyrs of Uhd once a year and also recite the verse of the Holy Qur’an on excellence of patience. The Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to pray for them. When the beloved Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) passed away himself, the Khalifs, Abu-Bakr (رضي الله عنه), Umar (رضي الله عنه), Usman (رضي الله عنه) used to do the same thing.

For Online Source of Tafsir ibn kathir ( Click Here )

So from Above Sahih hadith we conclude that

1) On the day of the passing away of a Saint or on a specific date, his admirers, disciples, followers and relatives assemble together at the grave of the Saint to obtain spiritual benefit and celebrate the anniversary with rejoice.

2) It is also very worthy to recite the Quran Shareef and pass on the Sawaab (reward) to their soul and to recite Fateha and distribute sweetmeat among those present.To Recite Naats or do other forms of Zikr of Allah is also done on such a blessed day.

View point of Classical scholars of Al Islam

Shah Abdul-Azeez Muhaddith Dehlwi رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ

writes, “Secondly, many people gather and, after completing the Quran and Fatiha on the Sheerini, distribute it amongst those present. This part was not practiced in the Holy Prophet’sصلی اللہ علیہ وسلم time or during the era of the Khulafaa-e-Raashideen, but there is nothing wrong in someone doing so. Rather, the deceased attain benefit from the actions of the living.”

[Fataawa Azeezia, Pg. 45]

Shah Abdul-Azeez Muhaddith Dehlwi

Answering Maulwi Abdul-Hakeem Siyaalkoti, Shah Abdul-Azeez Muhaddith Dehlwi رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ writes, “This taunt is because people are unaware of conditions.
No one accepts anything else to be Fardh except for what the Shariah has classified as so, Yes, attaining barkat from the graves of the pious, reciting the Holy Quraa and Isaal-e-Thawaab and distributing sweetmeats and food to assist them (m thawaab) is good according to the Consensus of the Ulama. The day of Urs appointed to remind people of his demise. Otherwise, on whatever day these acts are done is good,” –

[Zubdatun-Nasaaih fi Masaailiz-Zabaaih]

Hadrat Shaikh Abdul Qudoos Gangoohi رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ

writes to Maulana Jalaaluddin, “The Urs of Peers, according to their method with Samaa wl cleanliness, should be practiced,”

[ Maktoob. Letter no. 182]

Haaji Imdaadulilb Muhaajir Makkir رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ

the Peer of Maulwi Rashid Ahmed and Ashraf Ali Thanwi [deoband founders ], notably stresses the permissibility of Urs and, while explaining his practices, رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ writes, “The practice of this Feqe (i.e. myself) in this matter is that I make Isaal-e- Thawaab to the soul of my Peer every year. Firstly, Quran is recited, and if there is enough time, Moulood Sharif is read.
Thereafter the reward of this is conveyed.” –

Deobandi founder Rashid Aluned Gangohi

also accepts Urs to originally be permissible. He writes, “

It is known from Arabs that they used to commemorate the Urs of Hadrat Sayed Ahmed Badawi رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ on a large scale with much pomp, The Ulama of Medina used to especially observe the Urs of Sayyiduna Ameer Hamza رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ.
Whose grave (Mazaar) was at the mountain of Uhud. In short, Muslims throughout the globe, including the Ulama, pious and especially the people of Madina, used to strictly observe Urs, and that which is good according to Muslims is good in the sight of A1lah عزوجل “

[Fataawa Rashidia, Vol.1, Pg. 92]

PLACING OF GHILAF [cloth] ON THE GRAVE

Cloth on the grave is placed for respect. There is nothing wrong in it just as Cloth on Kaaba sharif is place to increase its respect.

1) Ghilaf or Chadar (cloth) is placed on the grave of a Wali or pious Muslim for the benefit of the visitors so that they may understand and realise the status of the deceased Muslim.

2) It is allowed to put on a Ghilaf on the graves of Awliya and Ulema when it is recognised that the majority respect the person in the grave. People are also aware of the holy person’s status and gain auspiciousness from the holy person who is resting in the grave.

3) In the famous Hanafi fiqh book, “Raddul Mukhtaar”, it is stated: “It is permissible to place a cloth on the Qabar of a Wali or pious Muslim so that visitors be more respectful when visiting the grave. We should also realise that the basis of action is upon the intention”.

THE BURNING OF INCENSE STICKS, LOBAAN, ETC.

To light incense sticks (agarbatti) and lobaan in the Mazaar of the Awliya (or the gatherings of Khatams) and for the benefit of the visitors is permissible.

One should bear this in mind that it is done not for the deceased but rather for the comfort of the visitors, as they will feel better in a sweet-scented environment.

The action of doing good deeds for others is also a means of Sadaqa and the deceased also receive the Sawaab of this Sadaqa performed by those who are living. In the end this is an act done to create freshness in the air only.

PLACING OF FLOWERS OF THE GRAVE

The placing of flowers on the grave of an ordinary or a pious Muslim is permissible.

Objection: Putting flowers on the graves
Sahih Al Bukhari – Volume 1, Book 4, Number 215
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: Once the Prophet (Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam), while passing through one of the grave-yards of MADINA or MAKKAH heard the voices of two persons who were being tortured in their graves. The Prophet ( said, “These two persons are being tortured not for a major sin (to avoid).” The Prophet then added, “Yes! (they are being tortured for a major sin). Indeed, one of them never saved himself from being soiled with his urine while the other used to go about with calumnies (to make enmity between friends).” The Prophet then asked for a green leaf of a date-palm tree, broke it into two pieces and put one on each grave. On being asked why he had done so, he replied, “I hope that their torture might be lessened, till these get dried.”

 

so putting flowers or petals on a grave is a established Sunnah.

Allama Tahtawi (radi Allahu anhu) states: “Some among our preceeding Ulama have given a legal verdict that the action of placing flowers or fresh branches is Sunnat and is proven from Hadith”.

Wet grass should not be removed from the grave because the wet grass prays the Tasbih of Allah Taala and gives solace to the buried. If it is removed then you have committed an unjust deed for the deceased.

Seeking / Asking Help from Aulia

Permissibility of constructing building over grave mentioned in Quran

[Kahf 18:9] Did you know that the People of the Cave and People close to the Woods, were Our exceptional signs?

[Kahf 18:10] When the young men took refuge in the Cave – then said, Our Lord! Give us mercy from Yourself, and arrange guidance for us in our affair.”


[Kahf 18:11] We then thumped upon their ears in the Cave for a number of years. (* Put them to sleep.)


[Kahf 18:12] We then awakened them to see which of the two groups more accurately tells the period they had stayed.


Section 2


[Kahf 18:13] We shall narrate their account to you accurately; they were young men who believed in their Lord, and We increased the guidance for them.


[Kahf 18:14] And We made their hearts steadfast when they stood up and said, “Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth – we shall not worship any other deity except Him – if it were, we have then said something excessive.”


[Kahf 18:15] “These – the people of ours – have set up Gods besides Allah; why do they not bring a clear proof regarding them? And who is more unjust than one who fabricates a lie against Allah?”


[Kahf 18:16] “And when you have disassociated yourself from them and all what they worship besides Allah – so take refuge in the Cave – your Lord will spread His mercy for you and arrange ease for you in your affairs.”


[Kahf 18:17] And O dear Prophet (Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him) you will see the sun that when it rises it shifts away to the right of their cave, and when it sets it shifts away to their left, and they are in the open ground of that cave; this is from among the signs of Allah; whomever Allah guides – only he is therefore guided; and whomever He sends astray – you will never find for him a friend who guides.


Section 3


[Kahf 18:18] And you may think they are awake, whereas they are asleep; and We turn them over to the right and the left – and their dog is on the threshold of the cave, with its paws outstretched; O listener, were you to look at them closely, you would turn back running away from them, and be filled with their dread.


[Kahf 18:19] And similarly We awakened them so that they may enquire about each other; a speaker among them said, “How long have you stayed here?” Some among them said, “We have stayed a day or part of a day”; the others said, “Your Lord well knows how long you have stayed; therefore send one of you to the city with this silver coin – he may then check which food available there is purer, in order to bring some of it for you to eat – and he must be courteous and not inform anyone about you.”


[Kahf 18:20] “Indeed if they come to know about you, they will stone you or turn you back to their religion – and if so, you will never prosper.”


[Kahf 18:21] And this is how We made them known for people to know that the promise of Allah is true and that there is no doubt concerning the Last Day; when the people began disputing among themselves regarding them, they said, “Construct a building over their cave”; their Lord well knows them; those who dominated in this matter said, “We promise we will build a  Masjid over them.”


[Kahf 18:22] So the people will now say, “They are three, their dog is the fourth”; and some will say, “They are five, their dog is the sixth” – just blind guesses; and some will say, “They are seven, and their dog is the eighth”; proclaim (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him), “My Lord well knows their number – no one knows them except a few”; therefore do not debate concerning them except what has occurred, and do not ask any of the People of the Book(s) anything concerning them.


Section 4


[Kahf 18:23] And never say about anything that, “I will do this tomorrow.”


[Kahf 18:24] Except “If Allah wills”; and remember your Lord when you forget, and say, “It is likely that my Lord will guide me to a more accurate way of virtue than this.”


[Kahf 18:25] And they stayed in their Cave for three hundred years * and nine more *. (* 300 according to the Solar calendar and 309 according to the Lunar calendar.)


[Kahf 18:26] Say, “Allah well knows how long they stayed; for Him only are the hidden of the heavens and the earth; how well He sees and hears! They do not have any supporter besides Him; and He does not associate anyone in His command.”
