Hadrat Buraidah Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam said,

“I forbade you to visit graves, but visit them.” [Sahih Muslim, Book on Funerals, Vol. 1, Page 314]

Hadrat Ibn Mas’ud Radi Allahu Anhuma reported that the Messenger of Allah
SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam has said,

“I forbade you to visit graves, but you may now visit them, because they produce abstinence from the world and act as a reminder of the Hereafter.” [Sunan Ibn Majah, Book on Funerals, Page 112]


..:: Manners of Visiting the Graves ::..

1. The best manner of visiting the graves is to enter from the side of the feet and then to stand near the face of the deceased . The one should recite:

All Praise is due to Almighty Allah, Master of the Day of Judgment, Choicest Peace and Salutations upon the Master of humanity, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam), his family, Companions and all the Righteous Servants of Allah.

Few years ago, I received an email from a brother regarding the Ruling over saying and writing Sug-e-Madina, Sug-e-Taybah etc. for Human beings (Ashraf-ul-Makhlooqat). In connection to that email, I found many confused people objecting that Humans are labeled as Ashraful Makhlooqaat then why they use words like SUG (Dog) for themselves? The simple and straightforward answer is or can be... "Hum ISHQ kay banday hain kyun Baat bar'hai hay" but just for their satisfaction, following are some justifications and explanations to this issue.


Counter Questions:

First of all, I would like to put a counter question to them:

  • Why Hadrat Ali is called Sher-e-Khuda (Lion of ALLAH)?
  • Why Sayyiduna Hamza was titled Asadullah wa Rasooluh (Lion of ALLAH and HIS Messenger) by none other then Sayyiduna Rasoolullah Sallallaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam himself?
  • Why Hadrat Khalid bin Waleed is labeled as Saifullah (Sword of ALLAH)?
  • Why Sayyiduna Mihraan got the title of Safeena (Ship) from Sayyiduna Rasoolullah Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam?
  • And why Sarkar Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam himself called his companion as Abu Hurayra (Father of cats)? RidwanULLAHi Ta'ala Alaihim Ajama'een

ان الله عنده علم الساعه و ينزل الغيث و يعلم ما في الارحام وما تدري نفس ما ذا تكسب غدا وما تدري نفس باي ارض تموت ان الله عليم خبير
Undoubtedly, with Allah is the knowledge of the Hour, and He sends down rain and knows what is in the wombs of the mothers and no soul knows what it will earn tomorrow and no soul knows in what land it will die. Undoubtedly, Allah is the Knower, All Aware. [31:34]

The opponents say on the basis of this verse that the knowledge of all the above mention things known as Five Branches of Knowledge lies with Almighty Allah and no one else! By this they conclude that the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon Him) did not possess Ilm-e-Ghayb. This is indeed a hasty conclusion. Let us have an eye over some Authentic Commentaries of Qur'an to understand the real and true meaning of this verse.


Commentaries on the Above Verse of Holy Qur'an

Tafseer-e-Saavi Hashiya Ala Tafseer al Jalalain comments under this verse:

اي من حيث ذاتها واما باعلام الله للعبد فلا مانع منه كالانبياء و بعض الاولياء قال تعالى ولا يحيطون بشئي من علمه الا بما شاء قال تعالى فلا يظهر علي غيبه احدا الا من ارتضي من رسول فلا مانع من كون الله يطلع بعض عباده الصلحين علي بعض المغيبات فتكون معجزة للنبي و كرامة للولي ولذلك قال العلماء الحق انه لم يخرج نبينا من الدنيا حتي اطلعه علي تلك الخمس

..:: The Friday Jumu'ah Prayer ::..


Hadrat Salman Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah has said,

لا يغتسل رجل يوم الجمعة ، ويتطهر ما استطاع من طهر ، ويدهن من دهنه ، أو يمس من طيب بيته ثم يخرج ، فلا يفرق بين اثنين ، ثم يصلى ما كتب له ، ثم ينصت إذا تكلم الإمام ، إلا غفر له ما بينه وبين الجمعة الأخرى
“If a man takes bath on Friday; purifies himself as much as he can with ablution, applies oil from his oils, or uses any available perfume in his house, then goes out and, without squeezing between two men, prays what is prescribed for him, then remains silent when the Imam speaks (delivers sermon) his (minor) sins between that time and the next Friday will be forgiven.” [Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 1, Page 121, Book on the Friday Prayer]

Proclaiming "Ya Shaykh Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani"


Few amongst the people use to object that to proclaim "Ya Shaykh Abd al-Qadir Jilani" is Shirk because one is making partnership with Allah Ta’ala (committing Shirk) by asking for assistance from the creation of Allah Ta'ala. They say that one can only ask directly from Allah Ta’ala. The Ahle Sunnah wa Jama'at believes that it is absolutely permissible to say "Ya Shaykh Abd al Qaadir Jilani" when asking for assistance from those servants of Allah Ta'ala whom He has appointed as helpers of the Ummah.

We understand from the verse

اِیَّاکَ نَعْبُدُ وَ اِیَّاکَ نَسْتَعِیۡنُ
You alone we worship and from You alone we seek help (and may we always).

There are many narrations of predecessor Masha'ikh approximately 100 years before the birth of Sayyiduna Ghawth al-A'zam Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anho who foretold that shortly there will be born in 'Ajam [non-Arab state] a person who will announce that his foot is on the necks of all the Awliya-Allah. On his announcement, all the Awliya will place their heads under his feet and enter the shadow of his sacred feet.

AlaHadrat Imam Ash-Shah Ahmad Rida Khan al-Qadiri have quoted many narrations and annotations in this regard from which 11 (Eleven) will be presented below in accordance to the Qadiri number (11) with a hope that the Sublime Lord SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala will bless us with the Barakaat of both the Worlds... in sha ALLAH!


O Ghaus! You hold a place of prominence | Your feet are above others heads in eminence

NARRATION # 1 to 4:

All Praises is due to Allāh Almighty SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala, choicest Salāms and Salutations upon His Beloved Habīb, Sayyidunā Muhammadur-Rasūlullāh SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam, his noble family, the illustrious Sahābah and distinguished Awliya Ridwanullahi Ta'ala Alaihim Ajma'een.

A rich store of information about Gawth al-Aazam is conveniently available, to those familiar with the religious and spiritual tradition of Islam, in his names, his surnames, and the many titles conferred upon him by his devoted followers. It is not unusual for these to take up several lines in an Arabic manuscript, but let us start with the short form of His name:

O Ghawth! You hold a place of prominence ... Your feet are above others heads in eminence

Shaykh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani


A term applied throughout the Islamic world to respected persons of recognized seniority in learning, experience and wisdom. Its basic meaning in Arabic is “an elder; a man over fifty years of age.” [The spellings Sheikh, Shaikh and Shaykh may also be encountered in English-language publications.]

The True Meaning and
Excellence of Bay'at


The meaning of Bay'at or pledging spiritual allegiance is to be totally sold, which means to surrender yourself totally to a Spiritual Master (Murshid) to guide you to Allah.

Bay'at should be done on the hands of that person who possesses the following e attributes or else Bay'at will not be permissible. These are:

1. First and foremost, he must be a Sunni Muslim holding correct Islamic beliefs.
2. He should at least have that amount of knowledge which will enable him, without the assistance of anyone, to extract questions relating to Islamic Jurisprudence from Islamic books.
3. His Silsila (Chain of Spiritual Order) must be directly linked to the Holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) without a break in the sequence.
4. He must not be a Fasiq-e-Mo'lin (One who openly commits transgression and sin).
