Muhammad Idrees Qaadiri Sahib

Can the Mureed of one Peer become the Mureed of someone else as well?

Question 1: What do the blessed ‘Ulama [Islamic scholars] and Muftis [Islamic jurists] state regarding the following matter: If a person is the Mureed of one Peer [spiritual guide] and then he wishes to become the Mureed in another spiritual order, can he do so? (Questioner: A reader of Mahnamah Faizan-e-Madinah)

Answer:

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّ حِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ   ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

If becoming a Mureed in another spiritual order means ending the Bay’at of the first spiritual guide who fulfils the Shar’i conditions and becoming the Mureed of another one, it is impermissible as it is not permissible to change a Peer without a Shar’i need, and Shar’i need means that the first Peer does not fulfil the Shar’i conditions. Similarly, a person is not allowed to become the Mureed of someone else while still being the Mureed of his first Peer who fulfils the Shar’i conditions. One must avoid it as well because the person who becomes the Mureed at two places does not receive blessings and favours from either of them.

However, one can become a Taalib of another Peer while still being the Mureed of the first one; becoming a Taalib means that he remains the Mureed of his Peer who fulfils the Shar’i conditions and becomes a Taalib of another Peer who fulfils the Shar’i conditions for receiving blessings and favours. However, it is necessary that he should consider it to be the blessings of his first Peer whatever he receives from the second one.

Beware

Remember that there are 4 conditions for a Peer:

1     He must be a Sunni Sahih-ul-‘Aqeedah [i.e. having correct beliefs].

2     He must have sufficient knowledge to find the solution of the matters he faces, from books.

3     He must not be a Faasiq-e-Mu’lin [one who openly commits transgression].

4     His spiritual order should be continuous to the Beloved Rasool  صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ .

If even a single condition is not fulfilled, it is not permissible to become his Mureed or Taalib.

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ

Islamic ruling on purdah from the husband’s brothers

Question 2: What do the blessed ‘Ulama and Muftis state regarding the following matter: What is the Islamic ruling on purdah from the husband’s brothers? Moreover, how should purdah be observed from the husband’s brothers in a joint family where all the husband’s brothers live in a single house? Please tell us. (Questioner: Bint-e-Basheer)

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّ حِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ   ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

It is compulsory to observe purdah from the husband’s brothers and other non-Mahram relatives as well. In fact, one should be more careful in observing purdah from them as shyness between a woman and such relatives is less because they are relatives and know each other. Due to this reason, there remains a greater risk of Fitnahs [evils] from them compared to a person who is a complete stranger. Moreover, even if a woman lives in a joint family, she will have to be careful [about observing purdah] from them. She will have to observe complete purdah of all body parts except for these five, i.e. face, palms, wrists, feet and ankles. Khalwat, i.e. being in seclusion, with them, or coming in front of them in such state that part of hairs, neck, forearms, shins and calves, stomach, back, or other body parts included in Satr is visible is strictly Haraam [prohibited] and a sin. Similarly, it is also impermissible and a sin to come in front of them in such thin clothes from which the colour of the body parts included in Satr is visible. A woman may talk to them only when there is a need, being extremely careful; she should not even behave informally at all while conversing with them, let alone having fun with them.

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ
