Late Shah Ji, Supreme Spiritual Leader

Guests arrived in anticipation last night to mark the fourth anniversary since the Supreme Spiritual Leader, Shah Saab, passed away. Very few knew the secret that was to be revealed tonight that would to make this evening a momentous achievement in the history of the Sufi Spiritual Society. Those who knew of the upcoming events found it difficult to keep such exciting news locked away; they were desperate to tell everyone. But all was to be revealed very soon.

Following prayers and the recitation of Surah Yaseen to commemorate the memory of Shah Ji, male members of the Society and other guests visited the site at which the late Shah Ji rests. After paying their respects, they returned to continue the evening’s events. Qaari Saab performed Hamds and Surah’s from the Quran which was then followed by guests sharing their cherished memories of Shah Ji. The hearts of many were touched and brought tears to those that were humbled to have been in the company and presence of such an accomplished yet modest spiritual leader. Not only will his achievements and spiritual enlightenment be remembered and studied for years to come, insha’allah, but his warm and caring personality will never be forgotten. 

Then elite members of the society began their presentation to unfold the secret that had to be shared. They payed tribute to the DM Digital TV Network team and their family for encouraging Shah Saab, the current Spiritual Leader on pursuing the Sufism path and sharing his rare and hidden knowledge. As without them, they may not be here presenting such news. The atmosphere in the room could not be recreated there was a buzz amongst those who listened intently.

Hidden in the corner were antique, hand crafted  boxes that contained even more exquisite objects. As the contents of these treasure boxes were revealed one by one, heartbeats raced and guests murmured  to each other in disbelief. Could they really be in the presence of such rare relics? Were they actually sat beside items that very few have said to have seen? Such heirlooms are only ever talked about and remained rumours. Until now that is. After crowds were hushed and silence fell once again to allow speaker, Mr Tauseef Akhtar,  to tell us how these items were acquired.  Objects such as these are passed down generations and become dispersed with in extended families. But we have been in a very lucky position to have such a large collection present in one location. We’ll be sharing soon how the connection was made between the Society and original owners of the relics-and even that is an amazing story to tell.

These artefacts are from the time of our beloved Prophet Muhammad PBUH, his family and close advisers. One of which is Moh-e-Mubarak of the Holy Prophet’s  PBUH single hair from his head that has survived and remains intact. We also have a Mo-e-Mubarak of Hazrat Abubakar RA and thread hand-woven by Bibi Paak SUA. A single tooth of Hazrat Ovais Karni RA is also in the collection. This is even more significant for the Sufi Spiritual Society as their knowledge originates from Tareeqat-e-Ovaisia. The antique box also holds an original map of the Kab’ah that dates back 800 years and a pair of shoes belonging to Hazrat Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani RA. These magnificent relics are referred to as  Ziaraat.

Guests lined up to get a glimpse of  the collection and say their prayers. Many were stunned and examined the Ziaraat in awe, in disbelief! Phone cameras were armed and at the ready, those who had just discovered the secret wanted to tell their friends, their family, the world. They needed proof that they came so close to such rare objects. The air was electric. Simultaneous recitation of  Durood Shareef opened our hearts to what had just been revealed to us and we were all grateful that we were stood in this very room.  Our museum was only temporary so guests were ceremoniously ushered away despite many wanting to stay for longer.

Gifts of Gratitude

We receive many gifts where people express their gratitude for the services and help provided by Sufi Guidance. Whether it’s helping people overcome adversities they may face or providing advice, there are many experiences that you can read about on our testimonials page.
This particularly yummy cake was sent by Tasbiah from London in order to say thank you. I was able to pin point the exact location of her glasses that she struggled to find, whilst I was miles away in a remote location. From her home she called me and I told her that there were a pair of glasses near a bed. However these belonged to her sister so then I told her to look in her sofa. Delighted and shocked upon finding her glasses, she sent this cake. This genuine experience is completely true and provides a glimpse into the power of knowledge and its possibilities.

What is Zikr?

Zikr means remembrance of God (Allah). The Qur’an tells us to practice Zikr in order to expand our aliveness, increase our spiritual attunement and find rest for our hearts. In doing so, we invoke the immediate experience of divine attributes, specifically activating the energies of compassion and mercy and drawing blessings from the angelic realm.

‘Lá iláha illallah’ is the belief in the Divine Lordship of Allah (referred to as ‘ruboobiyyah’). Which means believing that Allah is the only one power who creates, gives life and death, and maintains the affairs of all that’s in this universe that exist in between life and death.

‘Allah Hoo’ becomes a complete sentence translating to ‘HE is Allah’. When the pronoun ‘Hoo’ is combined with the word ‘Allah’, it becomes a complete sentence: ‘HE is Allah’. Understand a simple grammatical principle that this is a complete sentence. The pronoun ‘Hoo’ gives it the meaning ‘HE is (exists), Whose name is Allah’.

‘Howa’ is a sacred and a secret name in spirituality of Allah. It is derived from ‘Hoo’ (verb), which states the one that exists, and always been in existence and will always be.

Condolences for a great Saint

20140507-171938.jpg
Today the Sufi Spiritual Society is in sadness and mourning the loss of the great Saint of Naqshbandi/Haqqani Tariqat Sheikh Nazim-Al-Haqqani Radhiallahu-anhu who was 92 yrs of age.

We offer our deepest sympathies and condolences to his family, friends & followers all around the world.

He spent a lifetime in service of the deen (Islam) and it is a great loss to the whole Ummet-e-Muslima.

He propagated the true core message of Islam into the hearts of a common person, by his teaching & simplicity.

We pray that Allah grants the Sheikh the highest place in Jannat.

But we need to remember that friends of Allah live on. Our actions speak for the love we have and had for them with continuity of their mission; by spreading the love of Rasool-e-Paak sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam (peace be upon him) in every heart & soul.

Shah Saab
