Philosophy of

Sufi Emperor Dewanbagi

The religion that the holy Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) preached for the salvation of mankind is called Mohammadi Islam.It is based on the holy doctrines which were revealed to the Prophet of the world Hazrat Muhammad(pbuh) from Allah.Allah,the most exalted proclaimed in the holy Quran,”Today I perfected the Religion (Islam) for you, completed my blessing to you and selected Islamic life for you.” (Sura:Mayeda,verse no – 3).So,it is clear from this verse that Islam was the religion preached by all the prophets and messengers from Hazrat Adam(As.) to the final prophet Hazrat Muhammad(pbuh).That’s why the Kalimah of the followers of Hazrat Adam(As.) was ”La ilaha illallahu Adam Shafiullah.”During Hazrat Nuh(As.) the Kalimah was “La ilaha illallahu Nuh Nabiullah.” During Hazrat Ibrahim(As.) the Kalimah was “La ilaha illallahu Ibrahim Khalilullah.”During Hazrat Musa(As.) the Kalimah was ” La lilah illallahu Musa Kalimullah.”During Hazrat Isa(As.) the Kalimah was ” La lilah illallahu Isa Ruhullah.” And for us the followers of the last prophet Hazrat Muhammad(pbuh) the Kalimah is “La lilah illallahu Muhammadur Rasulullah.” That is to say, followers of each and every prophet and messenger at first pledged their allegiance to Allah as their Lord,then to their respective prophet or messenger by uttering their Kalimah.


Sufi Emperor Hujur Qiblajan says,” All the prophets and messengers from Hazrat Adam(As.) to the last prophet Hazrat Muhammad(pbuh) conveyed divine messages from Allah to their contemporary people.Those who abide by the commandments of Allah given by the messenger of that age were believers.Then,all the divine doctrines were collectively named a religion after the name of that particular prophet of that age i.e., Isayee Religion,Musayee Religion,Ibrahimee Religion etc.Even the last Prophet Hazrat Muhammad(pbuh) gave recognition to all the religions preached by the former prophets and messengers.He said,”I’m from the lineage of Ibrahim(As.)” which approves of all the former religions.He gave fulfilment to the religion of Islam preached by the other prophets by making necessary reforms of it.


In regard to this,Sufi Emperor Hujur Qiblajan says,”Islam was the religion of all prophets and messengers from Adam(As.) to the last prophet Hazrat Muhammad(pbuh)”.Every prophet and messenger updated the religion of Islam to make it adaptable for the contemporary people keeping the essence of religion intact.Following this tradition,the final prophet Hazrat Muhammad(pbuh) updated the religion of Islam to make it suitable and science-oriented for all mankind and for all time.As we don’t follow Islam preached by the other former prophets,rather we follow the Islam preached by the last prophet Hazrat Muhammad(pbuh),it should be named after his name.That’s why,Sufi Emperor Hazrat Shah Dewanbagi(Rh.) the greatest reformer the world has ever got named it Mohammadi Islam.In addition to this,some Tafsir writers also addressed Islam as Din-e-Mohammadi in their Tafsir-books.Besides,the rules and regulations of Islamic Shariah are also called Mohammadan Law.During the Umayyad Caliphate,the name of Muhammad(pbuh) was omitted from Islam.In this way,very tactfully the Muslim community were detached from Hazrat Muhammad(pbuh) and consequently,they turned into a guardianless community devoid of the true ideals of the Prophet(pbuh).This is why,we get confused whenever we hear about Mohammadi Islam.But the reality is there are many other doctrines and ideologies in the world which are preached in the name of their introducers.


Even different Mazhabs(School of thought) and Tariqas(Spiritual Order) we follow are also established in the name of their respective Imams and Preachers.For instance,Hanafi Mazhab has been named after the name of its introducer Imam Abu Hanifa(Rh.),Maliki Mazhab has been named after the name of Imam Malik(Rh.),Shafi’i Mazhab has been named after the name of Imam Shafi(Rh.),Hanbali Mazhab has been named after the name of Imam Hanbal(Rh.). In the same way,Qadiriyya Tariqa was named after the name of Gaus-e-Pak Hazrat Abdul Qadi Gilani(Rh.),Chishtiyya Tariqa was named after the name of Ghareeb-e-Newaz Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti(Rh.),Mojaddedia Tariqa was named after the name of Mojadded Al Fesani(Rh.),Nakshbandia Tariqa was named after the name of Bahauddin Nakshband(Rh.) and Sultanaia Mojaddedia Tariqa was named after Imam Syed Abul Fazal Sultan Ahmad(Rh.). Following the same tradition,different Tafsir(explanatory book of Quran) writers also named their Tafsir books in their own names.Such as-Tafsir-e-Jalalain,Tafsir-e-Ibn Abbas,Tafsir-e-Tabari,Tafsir-e-Ibn Kasir etc.


On the other hand,different Hadith collectors also named the collection of Hadiths of Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) after their own names i.e,Bukhari Sharif,Tirmiji Sharif,Muslim Sharif etc.As the Prophet of the World Hazrat Muhammad(pbuh) gave Quran the complete code of human life combined with Shariah,Tariqa,Haqiqah and Marifah for the salvation of mankind after long fifteen years of diligent meditation in the cave of Hera,it is called Mohammadi Islam. So,Mohammadi Islam isn’t a man-made ideology rather a religion selected by Allah and preached by Hazrat Muhammad(pbuh).In regard to the blessings of Mohammadi Islam Sufi Emperor Hujur Qiblajan says,”If a man can bear the ideals and teachings of Mohammadi Islam in him,he can perceive the peace of Islam in real life.”So,the religious philosophy Sufi Emperor Hazrat Shah Dewanbagi(Rh.) preaches to mankind is Mohammadi Islam which was given to the Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) fourteen hundred years back by Allah Himself.
