Chosen friends of Allah.
are the chosen friends of Allah. They are the one who have drunk
from the fountain of eternal life during their life time on
earth. They are those devotee and sincere bondsman on the earth
who remember Allah ceaselessly and spend their life seeing inner
purification through endeavor, toil, abstinence and prayer.
They are the one who cease to depend on the "creation"
and give them selves unto the creator, seeking sustenance from
sources unimaginable, attain nearness to the divine light through
constant worship and service to humanity. Their journey is endless.
They are shore less sea with out any bottom and craving for
Allah with out any limits.
part of their body is completely rid of non-divine influence.
Their heart become like a clean mirror reflecting back the reality
of things. Their judgment does not err. Being giving the divine
light, they see the things in their true perspective. They see
every thing including Angles, Souls, Divine Thorns, the "Lohe-e-Mahfooze",
the guarded tablet in the seventh Heaven containing records
of all events distinct to take place from the beginning to the
end of the universe. They see the past, the present and the
future before them.
In the Holy Quran Sura "Yunus" Ayat 62 the verse says:-
Verily on friends of Allah, there is no fear, nor they shall
Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has said in Hadith Qudsi
has said " The most value worshiper of my bondsman, seeking
my nearness, is the one I have opposed on him; and my servant
continues to draws me near Me through the work of supererogation,
until I love him. And when I love him, I am his ears so that
he hears Me, and his eyes so that he sees Me, and his feet so
he walks by Me, I am his hand so that he do work by Me. When
he raises his hand in the prayers,I
grant his request, when he seeks refuge unto Me, I protect him".
most Merciful Allah has bestowed powers in them by which whatever
Aulia Allah thinks and says become " KUNFA YA KUN"
( be and it become). Hundred of people have been declared as
dead have been brought to life by these Aulia Akram back to
life again. Dead animal and birds has been also restored to
life again although their bodies have been deteriorated since
long. Thousand have been cured by them with out medicines including
those living far away from them. Prophet like Hazrat Easa and
Hazrat Moosa would envy their super-natural phenomena. They
all are humble followers of Prophet Mohammed (sallal laahu alaihi
wasallam) so low before the Prophet how great would be they
are. One wonder why people hesitate very much to pay due respect
to these great personality, spiritually perfect and enlightened
ones------the Saints, who have been laid to rest after their
last breath on earth. Such people had a strong feeling that
to visit the shrine of a Saint tantamount of a sin of "Shirk".
to their belief, these Prophet & Saints who have been laid
to the rest has gone forever and nothing can be achieved from
them. Even their bodies have been eaten up leaving no trace
behind the grave. Further they have in their minds as to why
should they seek any assistance or fulfillment of their desires
from them or from any one else even they have enough of faith
on Allah who the giver of Raizaq (food), cure (shifa), IIlm
( knowledge). No one can deny their on Allah of getting all
the things from Him, but do they all the things from Allah.
If not, then why not? Few example and conversation will convince
them for change in their approach. To visit the Aulia's (saints)
to go to their Mazar (Dargah, Tomb, Shrines), or to kiss their
hand, feet's, or their "Chaddar" covering place on
their Mazar or even to their request them for grant of wishes
(Murad) or to seek their help to solve the problems does amount
to Shirk or Bidat. Remember that Saints are alive and alert
and have innumerable powers bestowed to them to them by the
Grace of Allah even though laid to rest. Similarly, It have
been proved I our other articles " The prove of Aulia (Saints)".
A little bit of more explanation will make people overcome the
gross misunderstanding in their minds who are allergic in matter
of Shirk and Bidat.
us start with the following question:-
Is it a Shirk to kiss "Ghilaf" the outwards covering
of Kaaba Sharif?
b) Is it a Shirk to kiss "Hajra e Aswad" a stone of
c) Is it a Shirk to kiss the Holy Quran the book of Allah?
d) Is it a Shirk to kiss Hands and Feet's of parents face?
e) Is it a Shirk to kiss Wife, Children, Parents, Face?
f) Is it a Shirk to kiss Trophy Cup or Award?
Now refer A) "Ghilaf of Kaaba is kissed by the visitors
Tears are visible in their eyes when they touch the Ghilaf,
their lips utter prayers, their hearts throbs with emotion,
through each one known that the "Ghilaf" is made of
material prepared by human hands and it costs thousand of Riyals.
The cost of the material has absolutely no worth before them
but real philosophy behind all these kissing's is the Holy place
covered with Ghilaf, through Kaaba itself is built of stone
refer B) "Hajra e Aswad" a stone of Kaaba Sharif and
is kissed by the visitors performing Tawaf." Here is saying
of Hazrat Umar (r.a.u.) is worth quotation. Addressing the "Hajra
e Aswad", He said "O! Hajra e Aswad", I know
thy worth is no more than a piece of stone but since the Holy
Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) kissed thee it becomes
binding on me to follow in his foot "steps". It has
to be kissed either by lips or by show of hands in case o rush.
Now refer C) "HOLY QURAN" is printed on a piece of
paper and has it outer thick cover which looks like a book but
is kissed by the deepest reverence and emotion for very fact
that right inside the revelation from Allah. People dont
kiss Novels and story books, through they are made of same material.
refer D&E) Hands, feet, faces are apparently noting but
bones covered by flesh, skin and hairs, but to a kisser it has
a different meaning he respect and loves those part of the body
of beloved persons.
refer F) Apparently, Trophies are made of metals and materials
and have some monetary value, but to winner of the reward it
becomes priceless article. The feeling of honor, respect and
enthusiasm when combined together in the mind of the recipient
make him kiss the trophy.
to a person who have no inside knowledge of the meaning of these
kissing's would thing that all these kissing's are ridiculous
ceremony, but to a person with sight all such kissing's are
formalities is a matter of love, sentiment, respect and honors.
It is thus proved beyond doubt that such kisses do not fall
in the category of Shirk or Bidah in any manner.
kissing of feet or hand, Chaddar of Holy Saints the friends
of Allah, to whom all the reverence is due, does not tantamount
to Shirk or Bidat from any arguable angle Regarding request,
appeal, Wishes, or desires to be granted by Saints also cannot
be rightly termed as "Shirk or Bidat" for the very
reason that people do request their friends relatives, parents,
their bosses, government official and higher up pleading for
help. Do the convinced persons not file Mercy Petition to the
Head of the State to save their lives? Though the life and death
is in hands of Allah? Do not the children, even the grown ups
request or demand that religion so rigid that at every step
they issue fatwas, especially ruling about "Shirk or Bidat".
May Allah guide and make them realistic and sensible in their
approach particularly in the manner of faith.
is the prime source, the acts of Aulia-the enlightened Saints,
are nothing the attribute of Allah channeled through them.

Proof of Aulia.
erroneous type of concept of many people has been developed
towards the acknowledgment of Aulia (Saints) in the religion
of Islam. Some of them do not know about the reality of this
magnificence Aulia Akram (Holy Saints) and some of them say
that, These Sufis and Saints are baseless since there is not
any type of zikar in Quran and Hadith. For both the type of
communities, Allah ALL MIGhtY and His Prophet Mohammed (sallal
laahu alaihi wasallam) has delineate by giving orders in the
Holy Quran and Sunnah.
the Holy Quran LA ILLAHA ILLAL LA HO WAHDAHO LASHARIQA LAHO
Allah (GOD) revealed:
Behold! Verily on the friends Of Allah (GOD) there is on fear,
nor shall they grieve; those who believe and (Constantly) guard
against evil. For them is Glad Tiding, in the life of the Present,
And in the Hereafter: No change can there be in the Words of
Allah (GOD). This is indeed. The supreme Felicity. [10:62]
another words Allah TA'ALA have revealed in the Holy Quran:-
one can be its guardian except Al-Muttagun (The pious, Saints)
But most of them know not [8:34]
TA'ALA declares that:
he who has purified the Nafs has attained victory, and he who
has despoiled it has lost.
TA'ALA also states that:
day of Qiyamat (the day of doom) neither wealth nor sons will
benefit anyone, but that person who comes to Allah with a reformed
these Surrahs reference of Holy Quran it is undoubtedly defined
that Aulia Allah (Saints) are not erroneous but also ALL MIGHtY
Allah keeps them His comrade. Also Prophet Mohammed (sallal
laahu alaihi wasallam) has briefly clarified this issue of Aulia
Akram (Saints) in Hadith.
Saad Bin Abe Waqas (r.a.) has narrated that, Once Prophet Mohammed
(sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said that "Allah (GOD) alleviates
the nations but through His devotees friends".
this Hadith which is narrated by Hazrat Saad Bin Abe Waqas (r.a.),
Prophet Mohammed (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has defined
that Allah helps the nation as a sum or individually only because
of His friends which are Aulia Akram (Saints).
Hazrat Eabad (r.a.) has narrated that once Prophet Mohammed
(sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said that" In MY (sallal
laahu alaihi wasallam) nation there are forty Abdals (devotees)
because of whom the system of the world exists. Cause of them
rainfalls and due to them you are helped.
Annas (r.a.) narrates that once Prophet Mohammed (sallal laahu
alaihi wasallam) said that "This world will not remain
vacant from forty Abdals (devotees). Those who will be from
the grandsons and nation of Hazrat Abraham (a.s.) and due to
them you will be helped.
All the authentic principals of Aulia Akram (Saints) are to
be found in the Holy Quran and Hadith. This clearly untrue the
saying, that Aulia Allah (Saints) are baseless or flawed and
since there is not any Zikar of these Sufis and Saints in Holy
Quran and Hadith is absolutely erroneous and against the teaching
of Quran & Hadith. Even though, Allah GE and His propitiate
Prophet Mohammed (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) have explicitly
defined about these enormous celebrities. As we can see that
these Aulia Akram are the major part of Islam and also they
are one the most lightened path for the true believers and followers.
The spiritual statue of this Saints Undoubtedly is below the
prophets, yet they are recognized as true successor of them.
Their spiritual heights and achievements are enormous, glittering
and unforgotten as they have attracted the suffering masses
to their fold through their supernatural acts and mystic deeds.
The suffering humanity not in their life time but even after
passing of hundred of years after their breathing the last continues
to be blessed even to this day and look up to them relievers
of their worldly needs spiritual problems such as incurable,
misfortunes, untold, miseries and natural calamities.

Allah Almighty (God) created the world, He send the messengers
and saints from time to time reform the humanity so as to keep
it from evil practices and make it adopt the path of righteousness.
These messengers (Prophets) sent by the Allah (God), as the
legend goes, number 1,24,000. The four revealed books namely
Holy Zaboor, Holy Torah, Holy Bible and Holy Quran speak on
the subject with vivid clarity. Of this large number of Prophets,
the above-mentioned four books were revealed on the four noted
Prophets namely; Holy David, Moses, Jesus Christ and Hazrat
Mohammed (s.a.w.s.), respectively. Since according to the precepts
of the Holy Prophet Mohammed Mustafa (s.a.w.s.) He is the final
prophet, the chapter of prophethood stood closed some 1400 years
ago following His birth and shall remain closed till the Doom's
Day. According to a true Muslim's belief, acceptance by heart
of the three prophets of Allah (God) namely; Holy Holy David,
Moses and Jesus Christ from part his religious belief, among
others, and his faith is never complete, if he does not sincerely
believe in them and in the revealed holy books such a person
cannot as such be treated and recognized as a true Muslim.
Next come the Mystics and Saints, a reference to whom is also
made in the Holy Quran. The spiritual status of these saints,
undoubtedly is below the prophets, yet they are recognized as
true successors to them. The spiritual heights and mystical
achievements of these saints are great, glittering and many,
and they have attracted the suffering masses to their fold through
their supernatural acts (miracles) Sufi (mystic) deeds. The
suffering humanity not only in their life time, but even after
passage of hundreds of years after taking veil from this materialistic
world, continues to be blessed even to this day and looks up
to them as relievers of their worldly needs spiritual problems
such as incurable diseases, misfortunes, untold miseries and
natural calamities. Hazrat Syed Baba Tajuddin Aulia (the Crown
of Saints) as the title was bestowed upon him by Hazrat Ali
Murtaza Muskil-Kusha (Karam Allah Talah Anha), the fourth Caliph
of Islam. Babajan (Tajuddin Aulia) was one of the such greatest
Sufi Aulia (Mystic Saint) witnessed by the 19th century. In
succeeding pages, His (Taj Baba's) birth, His pious life, His
family background (Lineage), Sufi Master's (Tajudin's) spiritual
or mystical (Sufi) achievements, His benevolence on mankind,
His renunciation and detachment with the material gains and
worldly pleasures have been dealt with for information and guidance
of the readers. It is to be hoped that the readers would get
solace, spiritual (sufi) guidance, harmony and eternal happoness
after going through these pages and would find the website as
a guideline and divine light for drifting towards a spiritually
(Sufi) refined life and mysteries of mysticism (Sufism).
Characteristic of Pir.
are not such instruments, devices, or yard sticks which can
indicate the statue of a real Pir or a Fake one. One thing is
certain that a moderate striving sheikh must at least possess
the following characteristics:-
His way of life will indicate clearly that he has reached a
stage of total self-denial; that he has fore shaken secular
connection and mortified sensual desires and that he has a full
pursuit against personal ego, statue and position.
Sheikh must be fully acquainted with the spiritual method of
inner up grading and inner illumination of the hearts of his
disciples. He must be at a stage where he can be termed as Fana-Fil-Rasul.
he is not in spiritual communion with the Holy Prophet (sallal
laahu alaihi wasallam) who is the basic fountain-head of excellence,
the Sheikh is imperfect. Without the communion of Holy Prophet
(sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) a communion with Allah cannot
hosen bondsman of Allah are those very sight provokes HIS (Allah'S)

knowledge of Holy Quran and must stand steadfast in following
