Getting Our Wishes Through The Auliya Allah

Asking for Auliya’s help and asking them to fulfill our wishes is considered wrong and it is considered Shirk, Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam writes about that:

 

Translation: Maybe that at this point, people would think going to pay respects to Auliya Allah and asking them for fulfilling our wishes is shirk, then the answer for this is that asking for intercession (Shafa’at) through those who fulfill our wishes can never be wrong.  When it is well established that Almighty Allah gives them the knowledge of both the worlds, as given in the Hadith, then what is there to be surprised if the same Lord gives them the knowledge of what is going in the heart of the one far away…………when the intent of Almighty Allah is that these Auliya should be famous, as shown just now, then what if Almighty Allah Himself fulfils the wishes of those who ask for their help?  For this reason, even though centuries have passed, but still people crowd at the shrines of the Auliya.  If people did not get their wishes through them, then why would anyone take the trouble to go to their doors and why would anyone spend thousands of rupees as Isaal-E-Thawab? (Maqaasid ul Islam, Vol. 4, Pg No: 84)

 

An Analysis Of Thinking About The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) In Namaaz

 

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) went inside the Ka’aba and saw that they had made images of the Prophets (May peace be upon them), so He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) washed them away with saffron-mixed water.  From this Hadith, Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam draws the conclusion that the vision of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) which comes to our mind when we think about the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) ought to be respected as it is related to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam):

 

Translation: See! Those images all come under idols, their respect was not necessary, neither according to the Shariah and neither according to logic, but only because they had a certain relationship with the Prophets and it was said that this is image of this Prophet and this of that, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) showed some consideration for them and when He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) wiped them out, He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) wiped them out with saffron-mixed water and did not allow any disrespect of them.  If some of present days’ harsh people were present, then their nature shows us that they would have dirtied their hands only for this and would have considered this as a proof of Tauhid.  Accordingly, some of these people have clearly written that thinking about something worse is better than thinking about the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).

 

Now consider!  The vision of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) which develops in our mind when we think about the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has a certain relationship with the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and will any person with Iman say that it is worse than the worse animals?  Those people will surely explain this in some way or the other, but all those are not to be talked about.  What we say is this.  The vision which had certain relationship with the person of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has been insulted.

 

In light of the respect of the Companions, these people should themselves think, if they had said such a thing about the Companions, then how they would have treated them. “(Maqaasid ul Islam Vol. 10, Pg No: 163, 164)

 

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) Is Always Immersed In The Vision Of The Almighty Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala)

 

While discussing asking for help from somebody other than Almighty Allah, Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam unravels the secrets of Tashahud (At Tahiyyat…):

 

Translation: This calling out (Ya) is because the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is always immersed in the vision of Almighty Allah.  Who has the courage to call Him then?  But look at His benevolence! Call out to us, whenever you want, we will listen to you, especially when you are in the presence of the Lord Almighty Almighty Allah, then think about us and send your Salaam to us.  This is the secret of Salaam in Tashahud. (Maqaasid ul Islam, Vol. 10 Pg No: 163)
