A way of reformation

A way of reformation

Shaykh-e-Tareeqat, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـه wrote a letter on 1st Zul-Hijja-til-Haraam 1430 Hijri to a responsible Islamic brother of the department ‘Islahi Kutub’ [Reformative Books], a sub department of Al-Madina-tul-‘Ilmiyyah. This letter also contained the following matter:

I was privileged to briefly go through the book ‘Infiradi Koshish’ [Individual Efforts]. Except the 25 parables[1], مَـاشَــآءَ الـلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ most of the content is extremely wonderful. تَقبَّلَ اللّٰہ عَزَّوَجَلَّ (i.e. May Allah Almighty accept it). My request to you is that the practical method of individual efforts in which the persuasion for Ijtima’, Madani In’amaat and getting the other person ready to travel with the Madani Qafilah in the first meeting is mentioned, is this what we will have to follow? The one who hardly agrees to come to the Ijtima’, if in addition, we get him to say ‘yes’ for the Madani In’amaat and Madani Qafilah as well, then will he become a bearded Islamic brother adorning his head with blessed ‘Imamah and getting engaged in the Madani activities overnight? Is he not going to run away getting nervous and confused? It is my humble suggestion that whenever any organisational matter is written, then before printing it, it should be proofread by two or three such Islamic brothers who carry out the Madani activities of Dawat-e-Islami in public.

Please do not mind it, but passion is something else and experience is something else. It would be wonderful if Nigran-e-Shura agrees to proofread it, otherwise, Arakeen-e-Shura like Haji Ameen, Haji Zam Zam, Ameen Qafilah etc., should be requested to proofread it; because whatever has been printed from Al-Madina-tul-‘Ilmiyyah cannot be concealed. It is considered to be the guideline. Once again, I join my hands and request you to forgive me upon what I have mentioned. I have remained deprived of going through the book completely. It is possible that there might be clarifications somewhere in the book, or I have misunderstood it. Keep a big heart.

وَالسَّلَام   مَعَ   الاِکْرَام

Extracts of the reply of the Madani Islamic brother

وَ عَلَیْکُمُ   السَّلَام   وَ رَحْمَۃُ  اللّٰہِ   وَ بَرَکَاتُہٗ

A’la Hadrat, Maulana Shah Imam Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه states: Those who like justice are thankful to the one who guides them to the right path. (Malfuzaat A’la Hadrat, pp. 220)

I admit with extreme embarrassment that these mistakes are mine. I request you to forgive me. Changes in the example of individual efforts will take place as per your will. Out of the names you mentioned, I am in most contact with Haji Zam Zam Raza Attari[2]. اَلْـحَمْـدُ لـِلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ, I remain in contact  with him for consultation and reformation. I will اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ request others too and get it proofread by them as well[3]. Beloved Shaykh! You have written, ‘Please do not mind’. This is your extreme humility that despite reforming me in such a beautiful manner, you are still saying this. Beloved Shaykh! May Allah Almighty not show me the day when I take anything you say negatively to my heart. You are my Peer-o-Murshid [spiritual guide]. Even if you explain me something strictly or suppose, by punishing me, I will still remain satisfied and my heart will be joyous upon the fact that my Peer [spiritual guide] has brought his attention towards me. As far as Nafs is concerned, when does it desire good for anyone? May Allah Almighty save us from its evils. This world is only for a few days. Please be my support at the time of Naz’a [when soul is seized], in the grave and on the Day of Judgement. No matter how I am! I have certainly failed in following you duly, but am not a traitor, I am loyal and اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ will remain loyal.

Yours:

………………… Madani



[1] Actually these 25 parables are regarding the individual efforts of Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـه. Perhaps it is for this reason that he exempted them out.

[2] Alas! He has passed away on 21st Zul-Qa’da-til-Haraam, 1433 Hijri, corresponding to 8th October 2012.

[3] اَلْـحَمْـدُ لـِلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ, since many years, whatever is published by Al-Madina-tul-‘Ilmiyyah is also proofread from an organisational perspective.
