Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) session with Hazrat Khizhar (عَلَیْہِ الصَّلَاۃُ وَالسَّلَام)

Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) say’s when he started his divine trainings in the wildernesses of Baghdad; he met an individual who was very attractive and had a Religious and sparkling face. The person inquired if he would like to stopover with him. Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) said that he would love to. The person then stated that this could only be done if you promise to be obedient to my commands and never to question my sayings or actions. Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) instantly agreed upon this. The person then ordered Abdul Qadir Jilani to sit at a recommended place and not to move till he returned back. The person left and returned approximately after one year and found Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) still seated at the prescribed place. He spent a few moments with Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) and then asked him to sit and wait for him once more. This person left and returned again after one year. He once again spent some time with the Great Saint and then left again giving him the same orders as he had done twice. He then came back after a year and along with him brought some milk and (bread). At last he proclaimed “I am Hazrat Khizhar (عَلَیْہِ الصَّلَاۃُ وَالسَّلَام) and I have been asked to eat this food with you and so they ate.

Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam’s foot is on the shoulders of all the Saints

Once Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) was giving a speech, he went into a spiritual stage and proclaimed; “My foot’s on all the Auliyaah’s Shoulders”. There were many Saint’s present when he stated these precise words and instantly all of them bowed their necks. Sheikh Ali-bin-Haaiti (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) was also present in the convention who, immediately rushed toward Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) and really placed Huzoor’s foot on his neck. Hazrat Sayyidi Majid (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) say’s “When Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) uttered these phrases, every Saint (Wali) on planet lowered their necks.”

Hazrat Makaarem (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) say’s; “The day Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) made this speech, each and every Saint (Wali) distinguished that the “flag” of King-ship was presented before Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ). On this particular day, all Saints (Wali) globally bowed their necks on his orders.”

Hazrat Sayyedi Sheikh Khalifa-tul Akbar (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) say’s “I saw the holy prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) in my dream and I inquired about the speech of Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) my foot’s on all the Auliyaah’s shoulders.”

He states; they holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) replied; “Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) has pronounced the truth and nothing but the truth and why he should not say so, when his is a true Qutub and I am his Caretaker.”

Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) is also the writer of numerous volumes on an immense quantity of topics. His volumes overflow with oceans of Knowledge, Intelligence and spirituality. The most renowned volumes amongst all others are; Ghuneyah-tut Taliben and Futtuhul-Ghaeeb. Exceptionally many of his speeches were noted in script by many prodigious scholars that attended his gatherings. Many of these texts are still well-preserved in their actual form upon this day in different places of the world.

Transformation of people began by providing speeches and educating them in the Madrassa which belonged to Sayyedi Sheikh Abu-Saeed-Makhzomi (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ). The people of Baghdad and adjoining cities now arose to gather to the speeches of Huzoor-e-Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) in huge numbers and the Madrassa became very small for the gatherings. A time came when there was not enough place inside the Madrassa, people were forced to assemble out on the pavements and street to attend to his speeches and guidance. Later a few houses surrounding the madrassa were bought and merged to make the madrassa area big but to all surprises even this proved too small. The sitting place (Mimbar) of Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) was then shifted in a great open area where approximately more than 70 thousand people could easily attend in each of his speeches. It was one of his miracles that even the person sitting last in the gathering could easily and clearly understand and hear him just as the person who was sitting in front of him. Please note; IN those days the invention of loudspeaker was still not made and His Excellency (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) would stroke the heart of each and every person attending the speech even if they were huge in numbers. His speeches turned out to be so eminent that in a very small spell, it fascinated people hearts from all parts of the world, hence making Baghdad the heart of education and spiritualism once again for ever. He would deliver speeches usually on Friday, Wednesday and Sunday and the exercise continued for about more than 40 years. May Almighty Alah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) always shower more and more spiritual blessings upon him (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ)? Ameen!

The King of Awliyaah and Aqtaab of the entire world

Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) was born on the 1st of Ramadan 470 Hijri which appears to be the most favored date amid the learned scholars of Islam. His birth was a great sacred sign for the Muslim Ummah as it was not only the birth of a child but it was actually the upcoming of the Sultan of all the (Awliyaah’s), which had been forecasted for centuries before his holy birth. There are many marvelous events which encircled the birth of Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ). Hazrat Sayyeduna Shahabudden Suharwaardi (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) mentioned the following miracles (Karamaath) which encircled the holy birth of Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) in his famous book “Manaaqib-e-Ghousia”.

On the night before the birth of Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) his father Sayyedi Abu Saalaeh (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) saw in his dream the holy, noble Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) who gifted him the happy tidings: ” Abu-Salaeh! Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) has sanctified you with a spiritual son. He is my very beloved and also the beloved of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) and he is the most high-ranked among all the Awliyaah and Aqtaab of the Universe.”

When he was born, he had the birth imprint of the holy footprint of Rasoolullah (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) on his shoulder. This is the evidence of his Wilaayat and Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) gifted delightful greetings to his parents in their dream that their beloved son would be the Sultan-ul-Awliyaah and those who confront him would be deceived (Gumraah). On the night of his birth approximately 11 hundred males were born in Jilaan Shareef and every one of them was a (Wali Allah) friend of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ).

He was born on the night before the holy month of Ramadan. During the whole month of Ramadan amid Sehri and Iftaar time, he not once consumed milk from the time of (sehri) and afore the spell of Iftaar. In common words, he fasted from the very day he was inborn. His sanctified mother mentioned: “He would never cry asking for milk the complete day and would only consume milk at the time of (Iftaar) Subha-nallah! Masha Allah”.

Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) was not alike other offspring’s who would contribute their precious time playing and tricking around. From an affectionate age, he would spend his time in the true memories of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ). By chance if he ever anticipated joining other children, instantly from an invisible source a voice would be heard saying: “Come towards (Me) dear blessed” Initially, on hearing this say, he would become frightened and would rush to his mother and be seated on her lap. As the time passed, he became familiar to this voice, and now instead of rushing to his mother, he would sacrifice the thought of playing and dwelled in the memories of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ).

When he was approximately 4 ½ years old, according to firm narrations, his mother signed up his name into a local Madrassa in “Jilaan” shareef. He thus started his initial learning’s at this very Madrassa and stayed in this Madrassa till the age of ten. Through this certain period of time numerous amazing happenings followed. Each time Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) entered the Madrassa he witnessed spiritual figures marching by side and stating: “Make way for the Friend of Almighty Allah(عَزَّوَجَلَّ)” His son Sayyidi Abdur Razzak(رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) says that once my father was inquired when he principally came to know of his Wilaayat and Huzoor Ghous-e-Pak (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) answered by saying: “When I was about ten years old, I witnessed (Angels) marching alongside on my way to the Madrassa and when we would arrive at the Madrassa I could hear them say: “Make way for the Wali Allah, Make way for the friend of Allah’ It was when this persisted that I distinguished that I had been sanctified with the blessings of Wilaayat.”

Shah Abdul Latif Bhattai (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) advising harmony with his poetry globally

In view, Shah Abdul Latif Bhattai (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) was a graceful man, of an average size. He was solidly built, had cloudy ochre eyes, with a wide and tall forehead. He developed a beard according to the size permitted in the holy prophet’s Sunnah. He had a sincere and cautious review about himself and consumed much life in deep thoughts and self-examination, because he was always worried about his virtuous and religious development with the only reason of searching connection of the sacred. He would often investigate loneliness and think about seriously on the blazing queries flowing in his imagination toward mankind’s spiritual soul:

Reasons to create man-kind ?

 What is his Objective on the Globe? What is his Connection with his Originator?

 What is his Final Goal?

These queries agitated him and drove him towards loneliness and self-examination. He despised inhumanity and could never cause true misery to man-kind or even to an animal-kingdom. He proclaimed a very straightforward life of tolerant. His meal consumption was plain and cautious, so was his getup which was generally ingrained yellow, the shade of the getup of usually monks, Sufis, and hermit, tailored with ebony filaments. Until today, his remains are safeguarded at “Bhitshah” (where his tomb stands), along with so of his monuments such as a marching cane, a pair of eating receptacle, one originated of Sandal-wood and the other of luminous rock, which he utilized for consuming and drinking. His tall beret and his ebony headdress are firmly safeguarded.

In expedition of spiritual candor, Shah Abdul Latif Bhattai (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) well-traveled to various sectors of Sindh and also visited to the adjoining grounds as far as Lasbella, Multan, Jaiesalmeer and Bhuuj. He was well acknowledged among the well-known Sultans and Shahs at crest of might and laws of “Kaalhooras” in the province of Sindh. Nevertheless he well-travelled concerned only towards Islam in the clique of monks, hermits and frequently solo stepping in towns and cities, to comprehend the genuine directives of Islam enclosed in nature. During his journey he traveled towards the highlands, canyons, coastlands, plains and elevations where he encountered the traditional elementary inhabitations. He simultaneously journeyed towards the “Barren Hills” in the south city area of Hyderabad, Sindh.

The verses of his poem include the experience of “Sindhi Sailors” and their sailing expedition to Srilanka and Java. For approximately three years durations, he journeyed with monks and hermits, in pursuit of the faith, harmony, and reconciliation in the highlands of “Lasbella”. At various parts in the “Risaloh” it is remarked that he has been travelling with these hermits to these great, sacred and serene places. He also journeyed to very distant locations in the “Thaar” Desert such as “Junnagaadh” and “Jaisaalmer”.

All though Sindhi authors have not considered toward poetry for children yet still many authors and organizations have been generating positive things for the youth. The most wonderful voice of “Sufism” in Sindh belongs to the “Risaloh” of Shah Abdul Latif Bhattai (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ). This evident collection of magical poetry transmits the vast custom of “Sufism” in a vivid and rich territorial language.

Family tree and Urs of Shah Abdul Latif Bhattai (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ)

A famous Muslim scholar, educator and an original writer of poetry, Merza Caliche Beige has performed a tremendous benefit to Sindhi research by compiling data relatively of the initial life of Shah Bhattai, from the discussions that he had regularly secured with numerous old kin still existing, who acknowledged these details from their parents and ancestors for they had viewed Shah Abdul Latif Bhattai (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) personally and had even voiced with him.

His forefathers had come from (Herat) which is still the 2nd biggest city of Afghanistan to Sindh, after it was removed by “Timur” and his Mongol combatants. Shah Abdul Latif Bhattai (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) was the grandson of Abdul Karim Bullree (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) who was a supernatural wordsmith of great honor, his poetry in Sindhi is living and his honoring is still guarded at Bullree in the formation of an Urs.

Syed Habib Shah (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) was his father who lived in “Hallah-Haveli” a small town 40 miles from “Mattiarri” and next to the village of “Bhitshah”. Afterwards he left the venue and migrated to “Kottri” where Shah Abdul Latif Bhattai (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) spent some part of his immature life.

Shah Abdul Latif Bhattai (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) obtained his greater scholarship in the Maaktab of Akhund Noor Muhammad in fundamental Persian and Sindhi. He is also recognized to have recollected great verses of the holy Qur’an. His communication in Persian with present-day scholar “Makhdoum Moin-uddin Thattavi” as included in the Risaalah-e-Owaisi which brings onlookers to his scholarly ability. In his poetry he addresses Sindh and its adjoining territory; he drafts the remote cities such as Samarqand and “Constantinople” which is now called “Istanbul” he also unfolded about (Saamuundi) Sindhi sailors and their shipping methods journeys as deep as the “Malaabar” shores “Ceylon” which is now called Srilanka and the island of Java. His poetry was early interpreted into German language in 1866 approximately 100 years after his demise by a German Islamic scholar and preacher who was captivated by Sindhi language and culture in around 1860’s. With the support of Sindhi philosophers he gathered a collection of the earliest verses and named it “Shah Jo Risaloh”.

Knowledge and Erudition of Ala Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan Barelvi (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ)

Ala Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) being the grandson of a national hero could not remain detached from Independence activities. Eventually he did not physically take any effected measures but still flag stoned the way for Independence with his radiant principles located in the Holy Quran and Hadith. He was not in favor of Muslim-Hindu unification. This was the essential concept which can truly be named the infrastructure of an Independent Muslim country “Pakistan”. There is so much quoted about him from various personals some of which are enlisted below:

 (Cited in “Tarjuman-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat”, Khi, December, 1975).

Nobody between his generations was as effective as to dominate the plurality of Muslim Ummah of Pak-Indo Sub-continent all apart from North to south and from East to West.

The Administrator of Atlas of Islam, University of the Punjab, Lahore) Quotes: –

A just Philosopher is the perception and voice of his people and an Islamic Philosopher whose support or logic is the holy Quran and the Sunnah of the holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) and is the observer of science and the announcer of truth, justice and the donor of humankind. It will not be UN realistic if I say that Moulana Ahmad Raza Khan (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) was a philosopher of the very type.

Professor Dr. Muhammad Qaiser the vise –chancellor of Karachi University states: More than (50) P.H.D degrees were accomplished on Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) on Sunday, May 26, 2013 in Karachi Pakistan. Articles from his books are also included in the syllabus of Karachi University books.

His Highness Sheikh Abdullah Madani of Madina-e-Munawarah stated: “Research work on Hazrat Ahmad Raza Khan (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) is in evolution throughout the Real Arab world”.

Dr. Abdul Nabi Hameedi of South Africa called for betterment of the teachings of Hazrat Ahmad Raza (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) for the well-being of harmony and peace.

 “Fatawah” given by “His Highness, His Excellency (MUHAMMAD BIN ABDUS SALAAM DAGHISTANI – MUFTI MADINA-TUL- MUNAWWARA)

“All Glory is for Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) who is the only creator. I have examined closely of this brilliant and apparent book. Our pioneer and utmost experienced Ocean of extreme Knowledge, Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) has made visible the errors of those who have come out of hideaway, those who walk on the direction of the nonbelievers and the vicious ones, in his absolute book “Al Mu’tamadul Mustanad.” From between their dishonest faith, he did not leave anyone un-expressed.

Dear Intellectuals, it is necessary for you to hold on to this very “Book” which its writer has composed with extreme velocity. You will find in this very book radiant and apparent picture in counter of these bodies. Principally those bodies who determine to reveal the impartial which is previously obligated.

“May Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) award Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) huge compensation for he has given remedy and has explained his directives which are in his very book, “Al Mu’tamadul Mustanad”, in which are also the mandate of the “Ullamah” of Makkah-tul-Mukarramah and Madina-tul-Munawarah . Because of the misdeed and anxiety it has become essential for them as they (the misguided) are extending misdeeds on this planet and all those on their course.

“Inshallah Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) will eliminate those who act proudly and Inshallah Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) will surely bless Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) with delightful greetings and shower His sanctifications upon him and upon his people of the house and also upon those who will speak honestly till the day of compensation Ameen.”

Allama Mufti Muhammad Saleh Kamal (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ):

“The educated man on this planet, the Ocean of huge intelligence, the serenity of the eyes of the Ulema-e-Haq, is Moulana Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ).

Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) used plenty of his treasured life scripting Poetry. His scripts mostly existed of Praise “Naat-Shareef” for the holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) and Praise “Manqabats” for the friends of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ). It is apparent that his emotions and spirit was fallen in love with the holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) and is scripted within the horizon of “Shariah” and each “Verse” is filled with “Gems” of (Elhaam). (“Elhaam” is message which is stimulated by Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) into the hearts of “Auliya” the friends of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ). Just as the Prophets receive “Wahi” or Epiphany, the “Auliya” receive “Elhaam”.) His Poetry is basically the analysis of the verses of the holy Qur’an and the Hadith of the holy prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) and is largely in the Persian, Arabic and Urdu language.

It is an incident during Ala Hazrat’s probably second visit to Madina-Munawarah that his desire to see the holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) became exceptionally immense.

Constantly narrating “Durood” with extreme devotion and innocence in front of the Golden-grills of the holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ), he was confident within himself of witnessing the holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) physically. It was the second night of his visit at the doorstep of His Highness the holy prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) and suddenly he was blessed with the opportunity to see the sanctified beauty of our dearest Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ).

On that very night, Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan (R.A) in a condition of absolute compliance scripted a “Naat” in adoration of His Highness the holy prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ). The first verse of that Naat was: “Woh Soo’e La’La Zaar Phirtey Hain.”

The scripted poetry continues praising the sanctified prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) and finishes with the following verse:

“Koi Kuin Poochay Teri Baat Raza, Tujh Se Kutte Hazaar Phirtey Hain

Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) floored himself in severe loyalty and humbleness, and addressed himself as a “dog” of the sanctified Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ). At that moment, he was given the moment of seeing with his very own eyes, the sanctified personality of the holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) standing next to the Golden-Grill!

Personality of Imam Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه)

It is stated by Sayed Ayub Ali (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) when Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) was an infant, a teacher used to come to his residence to educate him. One day, the teacher was again and again advising Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) to pronounce a word, but Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) could not produce words vocally. The teacher was pronouncing the word with a “Zabr” but Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) was pronouncing the same word with a “Zer” alternatively. This very incident occurred again and again. Moulana Raza Ali Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) also observed this scene and advised Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) to come to him along with the Holy Quran. Ala Hazrat’s grandfather Moulana Raza Ali Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) detected that the writer had mistakenly placed a “Zabr” instead of a “Zer” and was surprised to see that the words produced vocally by Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) were perfectly correct. Moulana Raza Ali Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) inquired his grandson! Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه)! Why were you not following your instructor? He respectfully answered, “I had no command on my tongue”. Many other specific occurrences similar were witnessed; however, the Grace and Generosity of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَل) accompanied him all the time. This is referenced by (Hayat-e Ala Hazrat, V1, P68, and Maktaba-tul-Madina Karachi)

personality of Ala hazrat

At the age of 13 years, 10 months and 4 days, after learning the common sciences relying on the supervision of his honored father Moulana Naqi Ali Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) a “Dastar” (achievements in Islamic research) was rewarded to Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه). On that particular day, he created a “Fatwa” and forwarded it to his honorable father Moulana Naqi Ali Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) who inspected it and it was completely accurate. Apprehending to the skills of his beloved son, Moulana Naqi Ali Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) sanctioned Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) to uphold the position of a “Mufti” and Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) persisted this until the limit.

Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَل) sanctified Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) with abilities of distinct wisdoms. Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) wrote on more than (50) various sections of wisdoms and was a proficient in each every distinct wisdom. Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) was such an experienced stargazer and visionary that he (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) would adjust his timepiece just by examining the sun in the daytime and the stars at nighttime. The time he determined was regularly exact and correct with not even a moment’s difference. Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) was also an excellent and wonderful Mathematician. Earlier the vice President of Aligarh University, a superior Mathematician and heritor of various worldwide degrees, came to Ahmad Raza Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه). He shyly exposed the complication of the question but to his state of surprise Ahmad Raza Khan ( رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه  )answered the question instantly!, he proclaimed, My plan was to travel to Germany for the answer but it seems as if you were vigilant to the answer of this question in a book. When he returned the impact of this action, he raised a beard and became careful in performing Salah and fasting.

When people surrendered in finding the related references for Fiqh, they went to Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) who presented the right answers instantly. When these books were explored, they would find the verses or verdict written exactly as Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) had stated. We can only say that this is surely Almighty Allah’s (عَزَّوَجَل) gifted rare recall, that he even remembered the most aged books by heart.

Sayed Ayub Ali ( رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه  )states that one day Ala Hazrat ( رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه  )said, Some people who are unaware have written the title of Hafiz before my name even though I am not worthy of this title because I have not memorized the Quran. Sayed Ayub (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) states that on the same day, Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) started memorizing the holy Quran. His everyday habitual was most apparently from after he performed his “Wuzu” for (Esha-prayers) until the last time of (Esha-prayers). Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) memorized one Para (chapter) of the holy Quran each day and completed the 30th Para (chapters) on the 30th day.

Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) was a symbol of affection and love for the holy Prophet (صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْه وَاٰله وَسَلَّم). The love that Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) had for the holy Prophet (صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْه وَاٰله وَسَلَّم) can be widely recognized by reading “Hadaaiq-e-Baksheesh”, in which very line of every page is evidence of Ala Hazrat’s (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) love and affection towards the holy Prophet (صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْه وَاٰله وَسَلَّم). Every single verse which he( رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه )has phrased the holy Prophet( صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْه وَاٰله وَسَلَّم  )from the intensity of his heart, declares to his boundless love & adoration for the holy Prophet( صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْه وَاٰله وَسَلَّم). Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) never ever wrote complementary poetry in devotion of an essential or a ruler to impress or satisfy them, because Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) had genuinely approved the thralldom, and reverence towards the holy Prophet (صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْه وَاٰله وَسَلَّم).

Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) never addressed poor with disappointment and never dispatched those empty handed. He (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) always aided the meager and deprived. Before his demise, he (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) advised his companions and members of the family to attend the needy, delight them by nourishing them with luscious food and do not chastise or abuse them. He (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) always performed “Salah” (Prayers) with “Jamaat” and consumed very little meal, and did not slumber more than approximately two hours in a day.

Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) was on a visit to “Bareilly” in a train from “Peeli-Bheet”. During the trip, the train halted at “Nawab-Ganj” platform for a few moments. Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) with his associates came onto the platform to offer their “Magrib-Prayers. The associates were anxious the train may depart barring them, but Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) stayed very quiet and requested one of his associates to proclaim “Azaan”. In the meantime, the train-driver was engaged mysteriously in difficulties in starting the locomotive, the locomotive would not maneuver. All the engineers along with the superior officials of the platform assembled together to see what basically was the problem. “The engine is perfectly ok the driver proclaimed” abruptly a Pundit (Hindu priest) exclaimed, “A Darvesh is supplicating, maybe that is why the train is not maneuvering”. People surrounded Ala Hazrat (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) and as he finished supplicating and embarked the locomotive along with his associates the locomotive started maneuvering. It’s correct that one who is loyal and obedient to Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَل) the complete world becomes obedient to him.

Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan (رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه) has composed almost one thousand books and numerous “Fatawah” (Legal-Rulings) unluckily they have completely not been recovered and those recovered are entitled as (Alata yan nabawiyah fil Fataawah Radawiyyah). He has also translated the holy Quran in Urdu which is called Kanzul-Imaan.  

On the 25th of Safarul Muzaffar 1340 (28th October Friday 1921), at exactly 2:38 pm.
