‘WILAAYAT’ DISCUSSION ON WALI’S (SAINTS) – Bahaar E Shariat Vol 1

Wilaayat is a special closeness which Almighty Allah has afforded to some of His beloved servants through His Grace and Mercy.

Law: Wilaayat cannot be acquired by self-effort. It is bestowed by Almighty Allah. However, good deeds and virtuous behaviour is a means of allowing it to be bestowed. Some blessed personalities are blessed with this privilege in advance.

Law: Wilaayat is not given to anyone without knowledge. This knowledge is either that which one has acquired, or if Allah Wills, then knowledge is bestowed upon him before he receives the station of Wilaayat.

This is absolutely incorrect. To regard oneself independent and free from the need to adhere to the Shariat on the basis of this baseless view, leads to infidelity and heresy.

Law: No Wali is exempt from any Religious Obligation, no matter how exalted in status he may be. There are some ignorant ones who say that Shariah is only the path in order to reach the objective and they have already reached their objective, so there is thus no need for the path anymore (Allah forbid).
