Madani pearls of wisdom for the fortunate “Visitor to Madinah”
بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّ حْمٰنِ الرَّ حِیْم ط
Sag-e-Madinah, Muhammad Ilyas Attar Qaadiri Razavi عُـفِیَ عَـنۡـهُ presents Salam enriched with the utmost desire to behold Haramayn Sharifayn, to the visitor to Madinah Munawwarah and Makkah Mukarramah:
اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَیْکُمْ وَ رَحْمَۃُ اللّٰہِ وَ بَرَکَاتُہٗ
اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰہِ رَبِّ الْعٰلَمِیْنَ عَلٰی کُلِّ حَال
Mujhay tayri qismat pay rashk aa raha hay
Madinay ka tujh ko bulawa mila hay
O the fortunate “Visitor to Madinah”! Whether you are going to perform Hajj, or ‘Umrah, this is an extremely pleasant, spiritual and blessed journey. اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ, mercy will continuously be showered on you during the whole journey.
Point to be noted
Sometimes, angels come under the guise of a human being and test the visitors to Makkah and Madinah. Therefore, be cautious! Do not quarrel at all with any Muslim over there. You never know if you are being tested by provoking your anger through apparent behaviour. Therefore, keep away from anger, lest all your efforts go in vain.
Sanbhal ker paoon rakhna Hajiyon! Shahar-e-Madinah mayn
Kaheen aysa na ho saara safar baykar ho jaye
For the sake of “soil of Madinah”, do not spoil this blessed journey by missing Fard and Sunnah, telling lies, committing backbiting, tale-telling and unlawful gazing, having evil presumption, breaking promises, quarrelling and fighting, hurting someone’s feelings unlawfully, shaving the beard or cutting it to less than a fist length, having fun improperly, talking unnecessarily, etc.
Request to the “visitor to Madinah”
1 Humbly present my Salam in the blessed court of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم on every visit if possible, otherwise on some visits, or at least on one visit, and then make this request:
Sarkar! Chaar yar ka dayta hoon wasitah
Attar ko sada kay liye ker lo tum qubool
2 Salam to the blessed Shaykhayn [Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddeeq and Sayyiduna ‘Umar Farooq رَضِیَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُمَا], Sayyiduna Usman-e-Ghani, Sayyiduna Hamzah and all the martyrs of [battle of] Uhud, blessed personages resting in Jannat-ul-Baqi’, blessed personages resting in Jannat-ul-Ma’la and the blessed personages resting in Mataaf.
3 Make Du’a of forgiveness especially for me and my descendants, all the Mureeds (disciples) and Talibs, and for the whole Ummah.
4 Keep making Du’a for the progress of Dawat-e-Islami.
5 Take the blessed sand of Makkah Mukarramah and Madinah Munawwarah in your palm, recite Salat-‘Alan-Nabi on my behalf, kiss it directly without anything in between and keep it in any corner; perform this act once or few times.
6 It will be a great favour if you perform Tawaf of Ka’bah with the intention of Isal-e-Sawab for me, at least once.
وَالسَّلَام مَعَ الْاِکْرَام
