The Sufi Gaze !!!


compiled by Ali Hassan Khan

Below are some powers attributed to the sufis of the Chisti Tariqah by Zakariya Khandlawee al-Deobandee al-Hanafee (Mashaikh-e-Chist, Eng.Trans. Saadiq publications)

  • Any person, on whom Hazrat (Nizamuddin Deen al-Umri) cast his gaze would become a Shahid-e-Shuhood immediately. (Shahid-Shuhood is a high ranking Wali those who dwell in a lofty state of Divine Presence and Perception – Translator of Mashaikh-e-Chist) (page.192, Saadiq publications)

 

  • By a gaze of Hazrat Abu Ahmad (Khawajah Abu Ahmad Abdaal Chisti), a man could be transformed into a performer of karaamat. (page.145, published Majlisul Ulama of South Africa)

 

  • Hazrat Shaykh Abdul-Haqq Quddus Gangohi cast a powerful gaze of Tawajjuh on Moulana Jalal Deen. In consequsnce, his entire treasure of knowledge was affected. (page.188, Saadiq publications)

 

  • His (Khawajah Moinud Deen Chisiti) gaze was sufficiant to transform a man into a Sahib-e-Marifat.(page.45, Saadiq publications)

 

  • Khawajah Moinud Deen Chist became ba’yt to Hazrat Uthmaan Haaruni, and by his virtue of Tawajjuh, Moinud-Deen Chisiti attained perfection in sulook in a single day. (page.145, Saadiq publications)

 

  • Khawajah moinud Deen Chisti once passed by an orchard of a hostile Shiah chief, who would kill any person who adopted the names, Abu Bakr, Umar, and Uthmaan. Moinud Deen Chisti sat near the pond. The Shiah appeaerd in a furious state intending to kill Moinud Deen Chisti. But when Hazrat glanced at him, the shiah fell down. When he gained his consciousness, he was a transformed person and a staunch follower. (page.147, Saadiq publications)

Comment:

The Prophet’s ( صلى الله عليه وسلم) uncle Abu Talib was within sight of the Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلم), but he was not able to bring him to Islaam and Allaah said to him ( صلى الله عليه وسلم):

“Indeed, you (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) guide not whom you like, but Allaah guides whom He wills. And He knoes best those who are the guided” (Qur’aan 28:56)

Furthermore, the son of Nuh (عليه السلام) and the father of Ibraheem (عليه السلام) were within sight of these great Prophets, but they were unable to guide them.

Do the Deobandi’s believe in every tale without asking why the Prophets did not have these powers?

  1. without going into some lengthy answer, just analyse the ayat which has been deemed a proof against your claim against the sufis:
    “Indeed, you (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) guide not whom you like, but Allaah guides whom He wills. And He knoes best those who are the guided”

    the prophet was unable to guide a person (and a non-prophet was able to) is what is being mentioned in this verse! allah guides whom he will, through whoever he wills!

    stupid salafi.

  2. Asalaamulaykum Wa Rahamahtullahi Wa Barakatuhu.

    Brother Usama, that is poor manners on your behalf. People will not listen to your dawah if you use manners such as this.

    The last incident narrates:
    Khawajah moinud Deen Chisti once passed by an orchard of a hostile Shiah chief, who would kill any person who adopted the names, Abu Bakr, Umar, and Uthmaan. Moinud Deen Chisti sat near the pond. The Shiah appeaerd in a furious state intending to kill Moinud Deen Chisti. But when Hazrat glanced at him, the shiah fell down. When he gained his consciousness, he was a transformed person and a staunch follower. (page.147, Saadiq publications)

    The above story will make the laymen believe that the brother has special powers, therefore putting the Attribute which is solely for Allah upon this person. I know this, how do I know this, because I was once upon this way.

    You cannot narrate such stories without explaining them. You have to also understand that the people are simple, miracles this makes them turn away from Allah unless it is correctly explained.

    Another side point and this is my opinion, the reason this has no explanation is the that they cannot explain it from the correct view point of the Quran and Sunnah.

    I think you’ve missed the point, one of the incidents in this article narrates a man reciveing knowledge just by being looked at. How is this possible, when the Messenger of Allah (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) was taught by Jibreel.

    And Allah knows best.
