Mawla Ali ShrineExcerpts from Hilyat Al Awliyah Wa Tabaqat Al Asfiya by Shaykh Abu Nuaym Ahmad al-Isfahani (Alayhir Rahmah). 

Excellence of Hadrat Sayyiduna Imam Ali al-Murtuda (KaramAllahu Wajhul Kareem)

The fourth sire of the people, is the beloved of Allah Almighty and of His faithful creation, the gate of the city of knowledge, the commanding orator, the master of reason and intellect, the explainer of allegories, the pure blessing, the moral authority, the instinct of certitude, the fathomer of truth, the dean of piety, the beauty of knowledge, the truthful explainer whose heart is full of wisdom, whose tongue is most inquisitive, and whose ears are most conscious; the chieftain of the pious ones, the mirror of sages, the righteous judge, the most forbearing sire and the righteous caliph, ‘Ali bin Abi Talib, Allah bless his countenance.

Advice of Hadrat Sayyiduna Imam Ali al Murtuda KaramAllahu Wajhul Kareem to Kamil bin Ziyad Radi Allahu anhu

Mawla E Kaynat Hazrat Ali ‘Abdu-Rahman bin Jandab narrated that Kamil bin Ziyad told him: ” ‘Ali held my hand once, and he walked with me in the direction of the cemetery. When we reached the open desert, he soughed a deep breath before he said to me, ‘O Kamil son of Ziyad, hearts are like vessels, the best are exceptionally conscious and vast. Learn from what I am going to tell you. knowledge is better than wealth. Knowledge guards you but you are guarding wealth. Knowledge dispenses justice, while wealth seeks justice. Wealth decreases with expense while knowledge increase with expense. He said: A learned man is better than one who prays and fights in the way of Almighty Allah. When a learned man dies, such a calamity befalls on Islam which cannot be removed except by his successor.

‘Ali, (Allah bless his countenance), said in poem:

Glory is due to none other than to the learned.

Guided are they and proofs to the seekers of guidance.

Everybody is honoured proportionate to his knowledge, But the illiterate are disgraced, as enemies of the learned.

Acquire knowledge, you will be immortal. All men are dead, only the learned are alive.

What is the meaning of Mujahidah(Spiritual Struggle)? Al Malfuz Al Sharif Vol 1

Madina Al Munawwarah Al Malfuz Al Sharif Vol 1 – Anecdotes of AlaHadrat, Imam Ahmad Rida Khan عليه الرحمة (Must Read)

Question: What is the meaning of Mujahidah(Spiritual Struggle)?

Answer: The entire concept of Mujahidah is enclosed in this ayah:

And those who tremble with fear in the presence of their lord and abstain from the desires of Nafs, Verily, their abode is Jannah. – (Surah An-Naziyat79, Verse 40,41)

This is actually known as Jihad al-Akbar (the great struggle in spiritualism). It is stated in the Hadith Sharif that after returning victoriously from Jihad with the Kuffar at Badr, the Holy Prophet of Allah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم stated:

Now we return from the minor battle to the major battle. – (Sharh Zurqani, Vol.1, p.324)

Utterances of Shaykh Abdal Qadir Al-Jilani radi Allahu anhu (Malfuzat Sharif) Part 1

Abdal Qadir Al Jilani radi Allahu anhuSayings, Sufi Quotes, Islamic Quotes by Shaykh Abdal Qadir Al-Jilani radi Allahu anhu (Malfuzat Sharif)

There is nothing worth talking about, until you have been hatched out of the egg of your wordly existence [wujud] and embraced by the wing of the sacred law [shariah].

When the heart puts the Quran and the Sunnah into practice, it draws near to Allah exalted is He.

Make praying for forgiveness [istighfar] the regular practice of your tongue, grateful acknowledgment [ [itiraf] the regular practice of your heart, and quiet calm [sukun] the regular practice of your innermost being [sirr].

Let others eat their fill, while you go hungry.
Let others enjoy respect, while you remain humble.
Let others become rich, while you remain poor.

AlaHadrat Alaihir raHmah and His Taqwa

AlaHazrat gumbad

AlaHadrat Imam Ahmad Rida radi allahu anhu’s entire life was adorned with meticulous following of the Shari’ah and Sunnah of the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam and his taqwa had reached an elevated level. I shall present some incidents from his life that show that he not only had taqwa but had also attained the rank of wara’a [Abandoning a part of the permissible for fear of falling into the impermissible]. In accordance to the verse, No men can be its guardians except the pious, he was a perfect muttaqi [Pious and Godfearing] and a gnostic.

1. The last Ramadan in his life was in 1339 AH. The weather in Bareilly was very hot and he was weak and ill, as these were his final years. The Shari’ah exempts an old man [Al-Shaykh al-Fanī: an old man who cannot fast now, and cannot hope to expiate in the future either] from fasting and expiate by charity instead and for the ailing, they are allowed to expiate when they are healthy again [To fulfil an obligation at a later time]. Despite these dispensations, AlaHadrat’s taqwa demanded otherwise. This was not his fatwa but his taqwa. He said:

The hot weather in Bareilly will not allow me to fast but the weather in mountainous regions is cooler. Nainital is not far from here and I can fast in the mountains of Bhowali [83 miles north of Bareilly]. And I am able to go there; hence, it is obligatory for me to do so.

 

He spent the whole of Ramadan there and fasted the whole of Ramadan.

2. He passed away on the 25th Safar 1340 AH. He was ill for months and in the last months, he could not even walk. The Shari’ah permits that in such conditions, one can pray at home but AlaHadrat would pray in the congregation. Four men would carry him on a chair to the masjid and he continued to participate thus as long as he was physically able to do so. Read the rest of this entry »

Golden Words of Wisdom by Ameer al-Mu’mineen Sayyiduna Mawla ‘Ali al-Murtudah Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu

Panch Naare Punjatan Ke Ek Naara Haidari ” YA ALI ” karamALLAHu wajahul karim !

  • To meet somebody with gaiety and cheerfulness is the first act of a good deed.
  • It is also an act of prayer to ponder over the work of nature.
  • To have suspicion in one’s belief is equivalent to polytheism.
  • Improper modesty is the course of misfortune. Very few people are convincing company.
  • Showing appreciation is the reason for receiving Divine blessings, and ungratefulness is the reason for receiving difficulties or hardship.
  • Respect is from amongst the excellent of marvels and charity is from amongst the most excellent forms of worship.
  • Death is an uninvited companion.
  • In every second are hidden difficulties.
  • To be victorious over your worship is an excellent feat.
  • An intelligent person lowers himself to attain a high status while a foolish person raises his status thereby disgracing himself.
  • Intelligence falls into 2 categories: Natural disposition and adaptation.There is no benefit from accommodated intelligence without the intelligence of natural disposition: for example sunlight is useless to one who cannot see.
  • Friendship is a relationship proficient from birth.
  • To be ashamed of ones sins augment ones eyes, to be proud of ones good deeds destroys ones eyes.
  • The companion that destroys worship, his desires and extensive worship for one day is the enemy of the soul.
  • An intelligent person always remains sad and remorseful.
  • In idleness one is reminded of gallantry.
  • To combine charity with obligation is wickedness.
  • To speak ill of an open sinner is not backbiting.
  • A persons true worth is hidden under his tongue.
  • To forgive is the best form of revenge.
  • A wise person is he who due to his previous experiences goes about doing things a different way.
  • Even though there is fear in speaking the truth, yet in it is salvation. Though it is simple to lie yet in it is definitely destruction.
  • Restlessness combined with patience is definitely more inconvenient.
  • A poor person is he who has no friends.
  • Knowledge with practise is liberating and practise without sincerity is useless.
  • Poverty, whom many people feel ashamed of, is better than that wealth which leads to sins and wrong doings making a person face dishonour and disgrace.
  • There is never a shortage of experiences and an intelligent person is he who progresses by it.
  • To fear difficulties is a strange condition of adversities.
  • To forgive easily is supreme respectability and to be vengeful is extreme meanness.
  • The recognition of a respectable person is when anyone is generous then he too treats that person with generosity and if anyone is meek towards him then he too becomes docile, and a wicked person is that person, when approached with submission then he treats that person with generosity and if he is approached with generosity the he becomes negligent.
  • The reason the Ulama are poor and helpless is, because the ignorant are plenty who do not understand their value.
  • For a criminal to plead guilty is the best form of amnesty or intercession.
  • An intelligent person when remaining silent ponders about the Almighty SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala and His creation, and wherever he looks, he learns a lesson from around him. Read the rest of this entry »

Karamaat (Marvels) of Sayyiduna Mawla Ali al-Murtuda Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho

Countless Salutations be upon the cup-bearer of milk and potion; the approved one, the lion of Allah and the bravest of the brave… Countless Salutations be upon the shadow of power of the providence the lion striking with the sword and sovereign conqueror of Khyber!! ♥

CURE FOR A CRIPPLE: Allama Taaj al-Din as-Subki Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu states in his book Tabqaat that once Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu took Hadrat Imam Hassan and Hussain (Radi Allahu Anhum) and went to the Kaa’ba. Whilst in the Haram, they heard a person crying bitterly, begging Almighty Allah to forgive him. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu asked for this person to be brought before him. The person came to Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu dragging himself on the ground. He was a cripple. Hadrat Ali asked how he had become cripple and he said that he spent all his time openly committing sins. His father was a very pious Muslim who always warned him against sinning, but he took no heed. Once whilst his father was giving him advice, he became angry and beat his father up. His father became very sad and went to the Kaaba and cursed him. It was through the curse of his father, that he had become a cripple. The man said that he then realized his wrongs and repented sincerely in the Court of Allah and he also asked his father to forgive him. His father forgave him in fatherly love and was very pleased when he changed his life. The man then took an oath and said that his father asked to be brought back to Makkah, so that he may ask Allah to forgive his son and grant him cure. Whilst on their way to Makkah, their camel tripped, and his father fell off and was killed. The man said that from that day on he has been crying day and night in the Kaaba, begging Almighty Allah to grant him good health. When Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu heard this, he said, “If your father became pleased with you, then have faith that Almighty Allah is pleased with you.” Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu then read a few rakaats of Salaah and made dua for him. He then said, “Rise in the name of Allah! The cripple immediately stood up and was cured. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu said, AIf you had not taken an oath to say that your father had become pleased with you, then I would never had made dua for you.” [Tabqaat]

 

WALL STOPPED FROM FALLING: Hadrat Imam Jaa’far as-Saadiq Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu states that once Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu was seated against a wall deciding a case, when people sitting in the hearing began to shout and become panic stricken. They asked Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu to move away as the wall that he was sitting against was about to collapse. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu said, “Continue with the hearing. Allah is the Best Protector” The case continued. After the case had come to an end and when Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu left the area, then only did the wall collapse without causing any harm to anybody. [Izaalat al-Khulafa]

 

A SPY BECOMES BLIND: There was a person who used to sit in the companionship of Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu as a spy. He used to carry the information from the court of Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu to the opposition. Once Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu confronted him concerning this, and he denied this by swearing an oath. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu got into Jalaal and said, “If you are telling a lie, then may Allah take your sight away.” The spy immediately became blind and from that day on walked around with a cane in his hand. [Shawahid an-Nabuwwah, Page 127]

 

ANGELS SERVE HIS HOME: Hadrat Abu Dharr Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu says, “Once the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam sent me to call Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu from his home. When I reached his blessed home, I saw that the flour mill was in motion by itself, without being operated by anyone. When I told the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam about this, the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘O Abu Dharr! There are some Angels of Allah that travel the earth. Allah has also given them the duty of assisting my family.’” Read the rest of this entry »
