Two Ways to Purify the Heart

Hadrat Shah Waliullah Muhaddith Dehlvi (may the mercy of Allah be upon him) has written that there are two ways in which the earth regains purity if there is filth upon it.

1. Water pours down in such abundance that the filth is completely washed away.
2. The sun shines down so intensely that all trace of filth is burned away.

Similarly, there are only two ways to attain purification of the heart. One way is to engage in so much dhikr that mercy rains down upon one’s heart to such an extent that it eliminates the filth and cures the diseases of the heart. The other is to remain in the company of a righteous Shaykh and serve him, and like the sun the heart of theShaykh shines its rays upon his heart. The resulting blessing (faidh) removes all signs of the filth and a person’s heart is rendered pure.

Thus, we should be frequent and regular in our dhikr so that AllahAlimighty grants us annihilation of the heart (fana-e-qalbi), a blessing attained after the heart is purified in which a person is forever occupied in the remembrance of his Lord. However, this does not mean that he always sits in prayer and forsakes all other responsibilities. Rather the opposite is true and he takes care of all his worldly and family responsibilities but with a constant awareness of and a deep connection with AllahAlmighty.

ADVICE FOR THE MUREEDS of Silsila Qaadria Barakaatia Radawiya Nooria


The question was posed to ḤuĎūr Tāj ash-Sharīá Muftī Muḥammad Akhtar RiĎā al-Qādrī al-Bareylwī ḥāfidhullāh,Could you please share with us any wazīfa (litany) or any áml which can be performed for the protection of our Îmân and a means of achieving spiritual peace?


ḤuĎūr Tāj ash-Sharīá ḥāfidhullāh replied, – The recitation of Durūd (and Salawāt) is the most superior of wazāíf, recite Durūd abundantly

One should recite the Durood Shareef as much as possible. The recital of the Durood Shareef gains immense Barakah for the reciter. This should also be remembered by the students, that if they do not have the time to recite the Wazifas, then they should continue reciting the Durood Shareef in abundance.


Always try and picture your Sheikh, whenever you are alone. Do so with total love and sincerity. Imagine that you are seated in front of your Sheikh and that the both of you are present in the court of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). Imagine that the rays of Noor (Light) is descending upon the heart of your Murshid and from his heart it is being transferred to your heart. If you continue in this manner, you will be freed of all your worldly concerns and you will become more spiritually elevated.

May Almighty Allah assist you in this world and the Hereafter, through the Wasila of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and all the Mashaa’ikh of the Silsila Qaadria Barakaatia Radawiya Nooria. Ameen.

    I used to receive ashiq e rasool articles regularly. It has stopped suddenly. Can you explain why. This website is helping so many muslims and non muslim. It would be appreciated if the articles start at the earliest.

      jazakALLAH for the concern InshALLAH soon articles will be regularly posted in 2-3 days and the reason for which the articles were stop because tahir ul padri came Mumbai so oppose him and his ideas which are against the Quran Shareef and Hadith Shareef Shariat E Rasool Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam so we were busy searching his videos and books in which He has written his Kufriyat Beliefs by which Ulama E Ahle Sunnat of India gave Kafir Fatwa on him so we were busy in spreading the message of truth on projectors so that innocent Sunni Muslims can be save from this Fitna all over mumbai under the supervision of ALL INDIA JAMAAT RAZA E MUSTAFA and Alhumdulillah in Mumbai Tahir Ul Padri gave his speech on 15th March in Birla Hall whose capacity was 1000 and backside seats were charged Rs1000 and Rs5000 front seat and 2 seats exactly in front was charged RS 50,000 till one day before but on the day they were giving the speech pass free but then also more than 350 seats were empty and on 17th March it was on Somaya Ground whose capacity was more than 1 lac Alhundulillah less than 5000 people came at the ground which disappointed Dr Tahir Ul Padri because in that 5000 half were people who came from Hyderabad , Banglore and Ajmer Shareef and half were those who were not aware of his Kufriyats if u also dont know his kufriyat visit this facebook page we have searched and uploaded more than 15 videos in which he Tahir Ul Padri has been found guilty Page is Proofs Against Tahir Ul Madri(madar zaat nagga) and we sent our objections and question to Dr Tahir Ul Padri for the Answers but he rejected to answer so than we Challenge him for the Munazira openly by advertising on the roads bill boards but than also he refuse now what else can we do for the Innocent Sunni Muslims who after all this fact they belive him sunni and Muslim May ALLAH ta’ala save all of us from all Fitnas and protect our Imaan in HIS Beloved Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam’s wasila Aameen

      Note : Padri is used against Qadri because for some to be Qadri it is compulsory for him to be a Muslim as he Tahir Ul Padri is now not from Muslims so it will be a sin to call him Qadri.
