DEVOTION TO PROPHET MUHAMMAD (P.B.U.H.)

 

 During the rule of the Turks, everyone offering prayers in the Holy Haram Sharif at Madinah was forced to leave the premises after the ‘Isha prayers. However, Hazrat Qibla-e-Alam enjoyed the special privilege of staying overnight inside the grill of the tomb of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.), accompanied by four other people. Whenever he visited the holy tomb, he was overawed by respect and his whole body trembled out of sheer reverence. Even in bitter cold, he would break out in a sweat, making his dress wet, while his complexion would turn pale or ruddy.


ADHERENCE TO DIVINE LAW & MANDATORY OBSERVANCE OF

PROPHET MUHAMMAD’S (P.B.U.H.) TRADITIONS

 

 Hazrat Qibla-e-Alam’s philosophy of mysticism was not forsaking worldly relations and becoming a recluse. He enjoyed good food; was well-dressed; and strictly followed the edicts of Islamic law in the administration of his day-to-day affairs. Observance of Prophet Muhammad’s (P.B.U.H.) traditions in letter and spirit was an integral part of his practice and temperament, and he emphasized the need to do the same to his disciples.


GLANCE--METAMORPHOSIS--ALCHEMY

 

 Hundreds of Hazrat Qibla-e-Alam’s followers were, in their early lives, habituated to wicked deeds or were hardened criminals--having been involved in thievery, robbery, drunkenness, roguery, knavery, and what have you. Nonetheless, they were totally transformed and became the exact opposite under the influence of his vibrant spiritual influence—as if transmuted by alchemy! Now, they started strictly observing the daily prayers and the Ramazan fasting; performed Hajj; and devoted themselves to public service, specifically assisting the needy. According to one estimate, the number of Hazrat Qibla-e-Alam’s followers exceeds six lacs, spread all over the world. On a broader spectrum, his blessings and instructions also encompassed the Genii in general, and it is a fact that Hazrat Qibla-e-Alam guided many a rebellious genie to the straight path.


RELIGIOUS & NATIONAL SERVICES

 

 As far as religion is concerned, Hazrat Qibla-e-Alam’s services are inestimable. He funded and was instrumental in the erection of scores of mosques, religious academies, caravanserais, and wells. He paid particular attention to the publication of literature on mysticism.

 

 In 1916, he inaugurated the construction of Masjid-e-Noor at Alipur Sayyidan, which was eventually completed in 1920. The total cost came to around six lacs of rupees, which was an enormous amount in those days.

 

 In March 1901, he founded the Anjuman Khuddamus Sufia, Hind. In addition, he started the publication of the monthly Anwarus Sufia from Lahore.

 

He was the patron of a number of religious and national institutions, including Anjuman Himayat-e-Islam, Lahore; Anjuman Hizbul Ahnaf, Lahore; Anjuman Nomania, Lahore; Anjuman Islamia, Amritsar; Nadwatul ‘Ulama, Lucknow; Muslim University, Aligarh; Anjuman Khuddamus Sufia, Hind; Anjuman Khuddamul Muslimeen, Kasur; Anjuman Ta’limul Qur’an, Lahore; Madrasa Saulatia, Makkah Mukarramah; Madrasa Naqshbandia, Mysore; All-India Sunni Conference; Anjuman Islamia, Sialkot; Central Muslim Association, Bangalore; etc.

 

In addition, he presided over many conferences and conventions, including, but not limited to, Tehrik-e-Khilafat Conference; Tehrik-e-Fitna-e-Irtidad; Tehrik-e-Sarda Act; Tehrik-e-Masjid Shaheed Gunj; Jam’iyat-e-‘Ulama-e-Hind (Sunni Conference); Ghazi Ilm Din Shaheed Case; Fitna-e-Mirza’iyat; Majlis-e-Ittihad-e-Millat; and the Pakistan Movement. He led them all dynamically and served them energetically.


THE NUISANCE & MENACE OF MIRZA’IYAT

 

From 1901 to 1908, he led a vigorous campaign against the nuisance of Mirza’iyat. Later, as long as he lived, he persistently repudiated this perfidious faction. Exactly as Hazrat Qibla-e-Alam had earlier predicted, Mirza Qadiyani died “Hell-bound” in a ghastly and disgraceful manner.
