Hadith on the Abdal | The Existence of the Abdal that exist in al Shaam al Shareef [Syria]

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Alhamdulillahi Rabbil ‘Alameen wa afdhal ul salaato wa attammu tasleem ‘ala Sayyiduna Muhammad Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam

Sayyidil Mursaleen, Khaatamin Nabiyeen, Rehmatalil ‘Alameen, Shafee’il Mudhnibeen wa ‘ala Aalihee wa Sahbihee ‘Ajma’een wa man tabi’hum bi ihsaaanin ila Yawm il Deen

InshaAllah, this note seeks to clarify the existence of the Abdāl that exist in al Shaam al Shareef [Syria] contrary to the belief of some people who seek to deny that which has been proven by many of our pious predecessors and our Beloved Prophet sal Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. The Abdāl are from the Awliyah, the spiritual heirs of Sayyiduna RasoolAllah sal Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. They are hidden and hold high positions in the spiritual hierarchy. Many of us have been to Syria, we know that there is a mountain named Arba’een [Forty] which is named after the forty Abdāl who escaped there from persecution in centuries gone by.

Our beloved master, Sayyiduna al Shaykh Muhammad al Yaqoubi Hafidhahullah has mentioned the Abdāl of Shaam on many occasions. They say there is a great saying amongst the rijaalAllah, that whenever there is a gathering of forty Muslims, there is a Wali amongst them. The number forty is of great significance here, not only constituting the number of Abdāl but for other reasons also. Sayyiduna al Shaykh Ibraheem al Yaqoubi raheemahullah [the father of our master] was known to be the Qutb [amongst the highest ranks in the spiritual hierarchy] of Shaam.

The true adherents of Islam in its purity are the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah. In their ranks the truthful saints [Siddiqeen], the martyrs [Shuhadaa], and the righteous [Saaliheen] are to be found. Among them are the great men of guidance and illumination, of recorded integrity and celebrated virtue. The substitutes [Abdāl] and leaders [Imam] are to be found among them and the Muslims are in full accord concerning their guidance. This is the victorious group about whom Sayyiduna RasoolAllah sal Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “A group within my community manifestly continues to be in the truth. Neither those who oppose them nor those who abandon them can do them harm, from now on until the Day of Resurrection.” Read the rest of this entry »

Miraculous Happenings Before The Birth Of Beloved Muhammad (Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam)

Syedah Aamena Radi Allahu anha stated that as soon as the labour pains of childbirth started, an angel came and ask her to drink from a cup in his hand. This drink was whiter than milk and sweeter than honey. As soon as she drank this heavenly drink her pain disappeared and all fear left her.

Syedah Aamena Radi Allahu anha then saw the gates of Heaven open. The Angels came for the adoration of the new babe. Three Angels went towards the Kaa’ba. One Angel stayed over the Kaa’ba, one went to the East and other went towards the West. A light then Spread out lighting up the Universe. In this miraculous light, Syedah Aamena Radi Allahu anha stated , She could see distinctly the palaces of Palestine and Syria.

Then Four unkown ladies appeared miraculously before Aamena Radi Allahu anha to attend to the childbirth.

The First, who was very tall, said, she was Eve Radi Allahu anha, the mother of mankind.

The Second was Sarah Radi Allahu anha, the mother of the Prophet Issac Alaih salaam, and the grandmother of Jacob Alaih salaam, whose children were the Israelites, to pave the way for the forgiveness of the Jews, if they followed this child Muhammad Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam.

The Third was Princess Hagar of Egypt, the mother of Prophet Ishmael Alaih salaam. She came with Otto ( a sweet – smelling essence ) from Heaven, to express her love for this great grand-child from the descendants which fulfilled Allah’s ( Azawajal ) promise to her husband Prophet Abraham Alaih salaam, ” the world would be blessed through thy seed.”

The Fourth was Queen Asiya Radi Allahu anha, daughter of Mazahim. She was the wife of the Pharaoh of the time of Moses. She was that queen of Egypt who brought up Moses from a little child when he was found floating in the basket on the river Nile. She was the first person in the Pharaoh’s court who belived in Allah ( Azawajal ) upon seeing how small miraculous snake made by the staff of Moses ate up the bigger snakes of the Egyptian magicians. Whereupon the enraged Pharaoh tortured her severely, but in spite of this she refused to give up her faith.

In the hands of these four great nurses was Muhammad Salla allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam born with his foreskin already circumcised miraculously, with his navel cord already separated miracculously pure and clean without any kind of  blood or filth on it. Read the rest of this entry »
