Grandeur of Fatimah bint Mohammad Prophet Mohammad and Fatimah Miswar bin Makhramah relates a tradition that the Holy Prophet said, “Fatimah is part of my body. Whoever makes her angry, in fact makes me angry.” (Bukhari) Miswar bin Makhramah related a tradition that the Holy Prophet said, “I severely dislike if someone hurts Fatimah as she is my most beloved daughter.

Sultan Bahoo | What is True Repentance? | Blog Post standard

Allah says in Quran: اِنَّ اللّٰہَ یُحِبُّ التَّوَّابِیْنَ Meaning: Indeed, Allah loves those who turn towards Him. (2:222) Definition of Repentance: It is very important to know why Allah has emphasized upon renunciation from wrongdoings and sins. As without knowing the true meaning of repentance, it is pointless just to utter the words of repentance. The dictionary meaning of repentance is to ‘turn back’ and ‘consult’. To elaborate the meaning of repentance Allama Raazi writes in Mukhtar as-Sahah: “Repentance means penitence or abstinence from sins, bad deeds and disobedience and turn towards the goodness and virtue”. According to sharia repentance is obedience and submission to Allah by abstaining from His disobedience, delinquency and sins. However, according to Tareeqat (Sufism) repentance infact means; فَفِرُّوْٓا اِلَی اللّٰہ Meaning: “Run towards ...

Sultan Bahoo | Faqr (Sufism) and Everyday Life | Sultan ul Ashiqeen standard

What is Faqr? My spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman says: The literal meaning of Faqr is indigence and poverty. However, according to the Mystics it is the destination of life about which Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) said the following; اَلۡفَقۡرُ فَخۡرِیۡ وَالۡفَقۡرُ مِنِّی Faqr is my pride and Faqr is from me. Certainly, Faqr is a remarkable inward rank and marvel. There is nothing comparable to it in the inward. Faqr is the eternal destiny of those people who abdicated all the luxuries of world and hereafter on the day of Divine covenant. Thus, they remained firmly devoted to the Almighty Allah only. Indeed, none of the charms and pleasures of universe could shake their steadfastness. Undoubtedly, Faqr is the ardent Divine Love. Faqr is the path ...

Sultan Bahoo | Miraj | Ascent of Prophet Mohammad standard

اے ختمِ رُسل، مکی مدنی، کونین میں تم سا کوئی نہیں ذیشان نبی ہیں سب لیکن، معراج کا دولہا کوئی نہیں Explanation: O seal of the Prophets! O master of both Makkah and Madina! There is no one in the entire cosmos and heavens as you. Though there are many Prophets but none bedecked, honoured and privileged with Miraj like you, O Prophet Mohammad! Miraj means the night ascent of Prophet Mohammad through the seven heavens to the presence of God. Moreover, this is the physical and spiritual ascent of man. The narration of Miraj never happened before that night and nor will it happen again. Hence, this is that meeting between the Lord and the slave which reveals passion of union. ...

Perfect Spiritual Guide – The perfect manifestation of Holy Prophet standard

Allah, the Magnificent, intended to have someone who could see and praise His Divine beauty, and obliterate everything other than Him. For this an incarnated mirror was required in which He could manifest His Divine beauty. This passion results in creation of human. The Holy Prophet is the perfect mirror of the Divine Essence. Sultan Bahoo says: Know! When the light of the One coming out of His isolated Oneness intended to manifest Himself in multiplicity, He graced (all the worlds) with the splendid sight of His pure Divine beauty. Both the realms started burning like a moth on the candle of His blazing beauty. Then, the light of the One concealed in the veil of م (M) of احمد ...

When Faqr is Accomplished That is Allah standard

When a person decides to travel, he progresses towards a fixed destination and does not look towards another direction. Similarly, when a seeker of Allah steps towards Faqr, he desires for the gnosis and connection with Allah and its final destination is: اِذَا تَمَّ الْفَقْرُ فَھُوَ اللّٰہُ Meaning:  When Faqr is accomplished that is Allah. A Qudsi Hadith says: “Whoever seeks  Me,  undoubtedly  finds Me. Whoever finds  Me,  he  recognizes  Me. One who  recognizes  Me,  he  begins to  love  Me. Whoever  loves  Me,  he  becomes  My  lover. One who loves Me passionately, I kill him. Whomsoever  I  kill,  his compensation  is due  on Me  and I  am  Myself  his compensation.” The Hadith “When Faqr is accomplished that is Allah” also mentions the same ...

Sultan Bahoo | Company of Fakir leads to Perfection of Faith standard

Every company bears effects on the personality of a person. It is the very nature of human being that he adopts the culture, traditions, behaviours, attitude, thoughts etc. of the society where he lives.

Innerself (Nafs) and Its Cure According to Teachings of Sultan Bahoo standard

It is a Qudsi Hadith: کُنْتُ کَنْزًا مَخْفِیًا فَاَحْبَبْتُ اَنْ اُعْرَفَ فَخَلَقْتُ الْخَلْق Meaning: I was a hidden treasure, I intended to be recognized and hence, I created the creation. Almighty Allah created humans for His recognition and gnosis (marifa معرفۃ ) but unfortunately they have forgotten this very purpose of their creation. The aim of life is not a hard one to accomplish nor does the way to Divine vision (Deedar-e-Elahi دیدار الٰہی) goes through ‘unbreakable’ veils or an odyssey. There is ‘a veil’ between man and Divine vision but its reality is thinner than that of an onion skin. It is innerself (nafs نفس). If one is not cured of this sickness then let it be assure that Divine vision ...
