Core teachings of Sufi Samrat Dewanbagi
The great reformer Sufi Samrat Hazrat Dewanbagi Hujur Qibla is imparting lesson the people to be ideal in character and Ashek-e-Rasul and enables them to attain nearness to Allah and His Rasul (Sm). Taking his teaching coming under his shade, many people are having peace in real life and can comprehend the reality of peace of Islam.
The teachings that Sufi Samrat provides people with to ensure the eternal peace and salvation in the worldly life and hereafter reflecting the ideals of Hazrat Rasul (Sm) in the real life. It has been stated in the holy Quran, "Those who have purified their souls, offer dhikr of the name of the Lord and offer prayers are successful." (Sura Ala, verse 14 and 15)
For this reason, Sufi Samrat Hujur Qibla by teaching mainly four lessons, which are--
(2) Immortality of Qalb (activating Dhikr in the Qalb),
(3) Deep meditation during prayers and
(4) To become an Ashek-e-Rasul.
(1) Self-purification: As stated in the holy Quran, “The man who keeps his soul pure is successful. And the man who makes his soul impure is ruined.” (Surah Shams, Verse 9-10) According to the Hadith from Bukhari Sharif, Hazrat Rasul (Sm) narrates, “Be careful! Surely there is in the body a small piece of flesh. If the piece of flesh is perfectly pure, the whole body is pure; it means entire human body is administered perfectly. And if it is polluted, the whole body is polluted. This part of the body is qalb (heart). So, it is crystal clear to all that without a purified soul no prayer can bring any blessings from Allah. It is required to know, how and in touch of which soul becomes impure; and how and in touch of which we can make our souls pure. Some of the materials of this world make soul pure and impure. Some of the inherent vices of the world are namely, lust, anger, greed, obsession, vanity and envy. These six inherent vices turn the soul into either pure or impure. Soul should be made pure by the power of fayez (spiritual power), a material of super intangible world. By attaining power of fayez from Awlia-e-Keram, soul can be purified. That is why Sufi Samrat Dewanbagi gives mankind the guidelines for achieving ideal character having a purified soul. His followers perform Wazifa (regular spiritual lessons) daily after five-time prayers and after late night (during Tahazzud prayers).
(2) Immortality of Qalb: The Holy Quran says, "The people, whose qalbs (hearts) have been refraining from the Dhikr of Allah, are clearly derailed." (Surah Zumar, Verse 22)
Allah the Magnificent has also stated in the holy Quran, “When you have finished prayers, remember Allah (offering dhikr) standing, sitting and lying.” (Surah Nisa, Verse-103)
That is why; Sufi Samrat teaches people to activate Dhikr in their qalbs saving them from being derailed and thus helps them to move on along the path of Iman. Hence Sufi Samrat Hazrat Dewanbagi teaches people to continue Dhikr in their qalbs always so that people can die with Iman even at the time of remaining fainted by offering Dhikr in the Qalb by obeying the directives of the Almighty.
(3) Deep meditation during prayers: Another teaching of Sufi Samrat Dewanbagi is to enable people to perform prayers (Salat) in devoted mind. As the Hadith Sharif says, “The prayers where comes the worldly thoughts, is not granted.” Therefore He teaches people the system so that the Muslims can perform payers with devotion being free from the worldly thoughts knowing Allah Hazer (present) and Nazer (witness) in Salat. If anyone performs Salat following his rules, no worldly thought comes in his Salat, for which they can achieve the Fayez, Rahmat, Barkat of Salat fully.
Hazrat Rasul (Sm) says, “Salat is the Meraz (meeting) for the Mumen.” While performing Salat following the instructions of Sufi Samrat Dewanbagi, someone become able to understand the reality of this verse of the Holy Quran.
(4) To become an Ashek-e-Rasul: The Holy Quran says, '[O Habib (Friend)] You say, if you want to love Allah, follow me, Allah will love you and forgive your sins. (Sarah Ale Imran, Verse 31). Again the Hadith Sharif says, 'The person who will not love me more than his life and property, parents and children and all other people can't be Mumen (Bokhari and Muslim Sharif). Without whose recommendations anyone will be able to escape the fire of painful hell, it is necessary to love Him (Rasul) at any cost more than our own beloved life. Like the Asheks (lovers) of the age of Hazrat Rasul (Sm), one even in this age, can become into Ashek of Allah and Hazrat Rasul (Sm) by purifying souls, continuing Dhikr of Allah in the Qalb, deep meditation in prayers and having an ideal character. Sufi Samrat Hujur Qibla teaches his followers how to come in close contact with Hazrat Rasul (Sm) and to have Deeder (sight) of Rasul (Sm) either in dreams or during the meditation. Sufi Samrat also says, “Iman (belief) means to love Rasul (Sm). He is such Imander (believer) according to how much he loves Rasul (Sm).”
Fundamental teachings of Sufi Samrat Dewanbagi
The Great reformer, reviver of Muhammadi Islam Sufi Samrat Hazrat Mahbub-e-Khoda Dewanbagi (Maddazilluhul Ali) Hujur Qiblajan is a world famous Tasauf Scientist. Those who have come to close contact with him and have got the scope to learn about the Creator, Creation, religion etc. have understood that how much he is sagacious, how deep his thinking world, how deep and wise the description regarding the Quran and the Hadith. In the eye of science, his thinking and analysis are research based, argument and contemporary. According to the Quran and the Hadith, he explained the fundamental subject if Islam relating to practical life and for this people are becoming aware to perform religion perfectly and are becoming able to get the real taste of religion. Sufi Samrat evaluations about fundamental Subject matters of Islam are presented below.
Kalema and its right explanation
Sufi Samrat Dewanbagi Hujur Qiblajan has uncovered his real mystery of Kalema and presented it rightly. He says, ‘To discuss about Kalema in detail, it is essential to be aware of its sentence and meaning. In that case, the idea about it be more transparent and the attractive information will come out. We will be able to perceive, every ‘Kalema’ is a phase (step/stair) to develop our soul and gain fulfillment in faith. For example, to pass M.A., one needs to pass the classes from 1 to M.A. in different phases in different schools, colleges and universities. In the same way to gain belief fully Kalema is a special phase in the field of learning spiritual teaching. Regarding Kalema, Sufi Samrat Dewanbagi says, “Kalema is not only the matter of oral pronunciation. To gain faith, through the obedience to the representative of Allah, a devotee has to go ahead to the believe (Iman) in different phases through spiritual attainment and the result of the Kalemas is felt in four steps gradually in full sense. To uncover the real mystery, Sufi Samrat Hujur Qiblajan has explained the Kalemas rightly and perfectly and it helps up to be believers and helps us to go on the right way.
Salat and its implementation
Salat (Prayer) is considered as the best phase of prayers. Sufi Samrat Dewanbagi says, “It is very essential for every Muslim how he/she has to perform his/her prayer (Salat) most effectively in the best way.
The preconditions of the prayers as follow as what are applicable for Salat with some importance:
• Obedience to Allah or Submission to Allah
• Spiritual purification
• Deep meditation without discontinuation
Hazrat Rasul (Sm) Says, “It is certain when a Mumen person is ready for salat, he/she talks to Allah.”
Sufi Samrat Hujur Qiblajan says, ‘Salat is the means of a devotee, to meet Allah, So it should be sanctified.’ So, through Salat, an Ashek-e-Rasul can communicate with Allah and talk to Him and Salat is the best means of desiring and getting from Allah. Actually Salat teaches a person to build an Ahmmadi character. Salat has been compulsory for the Muslims just to build up Ahmmadi character. For example, when we stand for salat, it looks an Arabic alphabet ‘Aleef’, when we go to ‘Ruku’, it looks an Arabic alphabet ‘Ha’, when we go to ‘Sejda’, it looks ‘Meem’ and when we sit down, it looks an Arabic alphabet ‘Dal’. In such a way, the combination of ‘Aleaf’, Ha, Meem, Dal, alphabets makes Ahmad that means to build up character of Hazrat Rasul (Sm) and leaving egoism fully it needs to show obedience in full sense to Allah. So implementing prayer (Salat) really, a person can be able to build up character of Nur-e-Muhammadi and Muhammadi characters will reveal in him and refraining from all sorts of sins, he/she will be able to gain the visit of Allah. For example, during Fazr time, getting up from sleep and standing for prayer, if someone keeps his/her mind in his/her qulb minutely, his/her ‘Sudurer Mokam’ opens. Then one kind of nur reflects from his/her qalb. After going deeper, a light is coming from far distance. It she/he goes deeper and deeper, the devotee sees Allah standing before him/her. If it happens in the prayer, sometimes the body shakes, someone cries unknowingly and the different organs shivers being afraid from Allah. Then the devotee feels peace greatly in the qalb (heart). Sufi Samrat Hujur Qiblajan says, if one wants to implement prayer (Salat) in reality, he/she needs to come to the contact (touch) with such a great man (Wali-Allah) who knows the method to see Allah in the prayer and who communicates with Allah, and learning the method of prayer, he/she must implement in his/her own life. Only then, prayer (Salat) will refrain a person from doing sin.
Roza (fasting) and the best method
Allah, the Magnificent declared in the holy Quran. “O Mumeens (believers)! I have made the ‘siam’ compulsory deed as your forefathers and it is for your self can for.” [Shura-Bakara 02, Verse-185]
Sufi Samrat Hazrat Dewanbagi says, “Through taking fast, the believers can rectify their souls and at last get purified. If the soul is not purified, no prayer can be performed purely. If someone is not free from six instincts, he/she cannot be obedient to Allah and no one can gain necessary devotion for prayer. Making the evil forces controlled, Siam widens the way of prayer purely. So, Hazrat Rasul (Sm) said in the Hadit, “Everything has a door and Siam is the door of prayer.”
Depending on the flow of love (Fayez) on the Siam performer, The prophet (Sm) divided the Ramadan month into three parts; The first ten days for Rahmat, the second ten days Megferat and the final ten days for getting free from hell. Allah says, “Regarding fasting in the Hadith-e-Kudsid “Roza” is for Me and I am the gift in return.”
Sufi Samrat Hujur Qibla describes the reality of taking fast, into three classes; for example, fasting for ordinary people, fasting for middle class people and fasting for best classes Wali-Allah.
He says, “Refraining from only taking foods and drink and desires is fasting for ordinary people.” “Leaving taking foods and drinks and desires, to keep the mind allowing from planning all sinful acts is the fasting for middle class people.” “Leaving taking foods and drinks and desires and keeping the mind allowing from planning all sinful acts, to absorb in meditation deeply regarding Allah is the best class fasting or the fasting of Wali-Allah And this kind of fasting is the actual fasting.”
Regarding this, Sufi Samrat Hujur Qibla describes, if an animal is kept fast without food from evening to morning binding to a tree and it is given food in the evening. The condition of the animal is not termed as Roza. Similarly, just to leave the foods and drinks and other desires is not the aim for taking fast. Describing the fruitlessness of taking fast not in full sense.
Sufi Samrat Hujur Qibla teaches a person how he/she can keep fast in actual sense and can get the close cantact of Allah and His grace.
Hajj and the method of performance
The word Hajj originated from the Arabic word ‘Hajjun’. The dictionary meaning of the word is to taking vow or firm determination. According to the view of Islamic Shariah, On the 9th Zilhaj, after performing same specific deeds, then visiting Baitullah and assembling in Arafat Maidan (Arafat Field), to take vow to lead oneself according to Islamic rules means (is) Hajj. The world Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mostafa (Sm) performed his hajj in 10th Hijri. During performing the hajj on 9th Zilhaj, he directed all his followers to be present in Arafat Maidan and described the fundamental rules of Islam and he also wanted to know whether he could be able to perform all the activities in his life time perfectly or skillfully. Everybody admitted that he performed everything perfectly. Then a good news come from Allah, “Today I have fulfilled your religious for you and I have also fulfilled my gift on you and selected Islam as your religion,” [Shura-Mayeedah-5 : verse-3]
Hajj is essential or compulsory only for the solvent Muslims. Those who have the capacity physically, mentally and financially to go to Macca for performing Hajj can perform hajj at least one time and it is made compulsory. Hajj in made compulsory for the rich people because they are inclined to worldly matter. So, the indifferent feeling is created in them for performing religious rules. But performing the rules of Hajj and getting the training physically and mentally, they have the scope to be attracted religion. For example, during binding Ihram wearing two pieces of clothes without stitching, being bald headed and bare footed reminds the Hajj about his/her death. In Ihram condition, leaving everything, it is the decree to be absorbed deep meditation about Allah.
Hazrat Rasul (Sm) Says, “You die before your death, behave like a dead person, and be free from every worldly affinity. Ihram’ means the training behave as a dead person. A dead person cannot kill a life. In ‘Ihram’ condition, to kill a life in prohibited. If someone does so, it does not prove that his/her enmity is not dead. So, as a penalty of it, she/he has to sacrifice an animal. During the visit of Kaba Sharif, mind attracts Allah. Going to Tawaf Arafat Maidan, remembering the forgiveness of fore father’s (first father’s) sin, it creates repentance in one’s mind about his/her own sin. So, the Hajis pardon to Allah. Disobeying the order of Allah, for taking the taste of fruits of prohibited tree and for doing this sinful act, Hazrat Adam (As) became separated from Bibi Hawa (As), he had to apologize to Allah for 390 years with the collaboration of Hazrat Rasul (Sm), Allah forgave the sin of Hazrat Adam (As). Hazrat Adam (As) got the good news of the forgiveness of his sin. And after burning for a long time, in the fire of separation, he met Bibi Hawa (As) in the Arafat Maidan. Hazrat Ibrahim built ‘Kaba’, he stayed there. To show honor and obedience to him, his followers visited/rounded the kabaghar, During Hajj, the Hajji visit/round the kabaghar seven times. The main reason of doing this, following the Rasuls (Sm) behavior, it is to show honor and obedience to Allah’s friends. Going to Mina, the Hajjis have to scarify animals. Sacrifice means the performance of Ibrahim (Sunnate Ibrahim). As Rasul (Sm) sacrificed animals, going to Mina. The Hajis show the reverence, and obedience to their own prophet, his fore father Hazrat Ibrahim (As) and Hazrat Ismail (As), On the way, they have to throw stone to the Satan. Hazrat Ismail (As) threw stone to the Satan. To be sacrificed, while he was going with his father, the Satan pretended him. Having informed father Hazrat Ibrahim (As), father advised him to throw stone to the Satan.
As Hazrat Rasul (Sm) followed the rules of Hazrat Ibrahim (As) everybody throws stone to the Satan. On the same way, if one’s own Nafs creates obstacles, he/she has to learn to to cross the obstacles. Going to Madina, after visiting the Shrine (Rowja) of Hazrat Rasul (Sm) it creates deep love and reverence to Rasul (Sm).
Actually, to impose the decree of performing Hajj on the rich people means to attract them to the path of religion. Performing through real Hajj, The rich Muslims can get the real path of Islam.
It is said in the Hadith, The heart/soul of Mumeen is the throne of Allah. So, the house where Allah Himself lives is more valuable than that of Ibrahim (As). So, Rasul (Sm) says. “Momeen’s heart is the house (throne) of Allah.” (Abu Daud) Sufi Samrat Hujur Qibla has given the actual idea about Hajj so that people describing for salvation can realize the purification of heart and can get the close contact of Allah. According to the method given Sufi Samrat, a lot of people have become successful to perform Hajj.
Zakat and it’s significance
Zakat (poor-due) is one of the five fundamental issues of Islam. “Those who establish regular Prayer, pay Zakat and have faith in the Afterlife they have guidance from their Lord and such are the successful.” (Surah Luqman, verse 4-5)
It is not easy matter to anybody who earns lot of money and wealth by his own efforts and pays the little part of it to the poor. But Allah gave such kind of method for wealthy person that he pays willingly to the poor from his wealth. If you pay to poor and helpless people, your wealth will be increased and developed. Although it is a sacrifice of the rich, this sacrifice will be benefitted him. The benefit is that the rich man will attain the satisfaction of Allah and Hazrat Rasul (Sm). This sacrifice is called Zakat.
Charity is a noble virtue. On the one hand an affluent person’s attraction of worldly resources decreases, and on the other the poor and the needy in society are benefited from it. As a result, maintaining peace and discipline, development of society becomes easier. Charity is one of the characteristics of a real mu’meen (believer). The holy Qur’an says: “Those who establish regular prayers and spend from that I have given them (for sustenance), such are the real faithful.” (Surah Al Anfal, verse 3)
About the external and hidden aspects of Zakat Barapir Hazrat Abdul Qader Jilani (Rh) in his book ‘Sirrul Asrar’ has said, “After the domestic expense, the specified portion of the remaining riches distributed (among the poor) at the year-end is called Zakat according to Shariah law. On the other hand to give from the spiritual savings to the religious fakir and the poor of the Afterlife is called the ‘Zakat of Tariqat’.” Allah is the sole Owner of all resources. He bestows the resources on him who he wills. To create an opportunity to establish equality and fraternity in society, the Shariah law has made obligatory for a person the distribution of one-fortieth portion of the specified riches among the poor per year so that the rich cannot amass worldly resources in their hands. In this regard Sufi Samrat Hujur Qibla says—Distribution among the poor a portion of the riches possessed by a rich man is the external aspect of Zakat. And to uphold the identity of Allah to mankind by the possessor of spiritual resources is the hidden aspect of Zakat. For this, as paying Zakat from the riches of a rich man is obligatory, similarly to uphold the identity of Allah to mankind by the persons having Allah in them is also obligatory. As the poor becomes beneficial by receiving Zakat from the rich, similarly the derailed people attain nearness to Allah on receiving favour and guidance from the person possessing spiritual resources.
