How to Interact with Hadith by Sheikh Atabek Shukurov

Saturday, 31 March 2012

Sheikh Atabek Shukurov

Ibn Ata Allah

In the "Taj Al-Aroos" or "The Crown of the bride" by Ibn Ata'llah As-Sakandari (may Allah show him mercy) he states about the presence of heart in the prayer;

"The likeness of one who prays, without presence of heart, is like someone sending a King, a gift of one hundred empty boxes; thus deserving his punishment.

Whoever prays with presence of heart is like someone giving the king a precious sapphire; worth a thousand gold coins. The king will always remember him because of it."

Tunjjina invocation/Dua

دُرُود تُنجّينا

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرّحمنِ الرَّحِيم

اللهمّ صَلّ عَلى سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ صَلوةً تُنَجِّيا بها مِنْ جَمِيعِ الا هْوَالِ

وَالافاتِ وَ تَقْضِى لنا بِها جَمِيعَ الحاجاتِ وَتُطَهِّرُنَا بِها مِنْ جَمِيعِ السَّيِّات

وَتَرْفَعُنَا بِها عِنْدَكَ أعْلى الدَّرَجَاتِ وَتُبَلّغُنَا بِهَآ اَقْصى الغَايَات

منْ جَمِيعِ الخَيرَاتِ في الحياةِ وَبعدَ المَمَاتِ

اِنَّكَ عَلى كُلِّ شَيءٍ قَدِير

                            Tunjjina invocation

In the name of Allah, most gracious, most merciful,

O’ Allah, bless our Master, our Leader Muhammad,

and upon the family of our Master, our Leader Muhammad.

Blessings that would rescue us from all anxieties and calamities.

That , through it, takes care of all of our needs

and purifies us from all of our sins;

raise us to your lofty ranks;

Where we can reach the highest goal and all manner of goodness;

in our life and after our death.

Truly you have power over everything.

Miracles of the Men of Allah

Sheikh Atabek Shukurov delievered the following Arabic text on Miracles of the Men of Allah and the following is a translation.

Sheikh Ahmed Raf’i
Imam Izzudeen Al-Farooqi states in his book, “Conduct of the Muslims;” “I was informed by Abu Al-Hafiz Muhyiudeen Abu Ishaq related from my father Sheikh Umar Al-Farooqi that he said, “I was with our master, our Sheikh Ahmed Al-Kabir Ar-Raf’i Al-Hussaini (may Allah be pleased with him) during the pilgrimage; this was the year five hundred and fifty five. We had entered Medina on the day the caravans entered it; caravans from Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Morocco, the Levitate, the lands of the non-Arabs and this was more than nine thousand people. So when we arrived at the enlightened masjid, we dismounted our mount, we walked barefooted into the sacred Muhammadan prescient until we stopped at the aromatic room of Prophethood.

He said, “Peace be upon you dear grandfather.” The Messenger of God (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) replied, “And upon you peace my dear child.” Everyone present in the sacred Masjid heard his blessed words. Their presence for this great gift was a great blessing. He yearned; he whimpered; he wept and then knelt to his knees and said,

“When afar, I would send my soul,
To kiss the Earth for me as my deputy.
This is the realm of souls come to,
So extent to me your hand, to grace my lips.”

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) extended his illumined, blessed hand from his bright grave, so he kissed it whilst the people looked on.

There was thousands present in the sacred precinct, when his pure hand was extended. Major scholars of the time were present; Hayat ibn Qais Al-Harni, Sheikh Adi ibn Musafir, Sheikh A’qeel ibn Al-Mubaji. They grabbed his clothes and in that time they refused to follow a spiritual teacher. There was Sheikh Ahmed Al-Azhari Al-Ansari, Sheikh Sharifudeen ibn Abdussmai’i Al-Hashami Al-Abbasi present. All of creation was blessed and honoured by vision of the Muhammadan hand (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). They all swore allegiance to him, as did every scholar present, and may Allah mercy on those who did.

Sheikh Hakim At-Tirmidhi

Sheikh Yusuf Al-Nabahani relates, in the biography of Muhammad ibn Ali At-Tirmidhi, from Al-Manwi that one of his miracles was when he presented his contemporaries with all the books he wrote, they called him a disbeliever; so he threw them all into the sea. A fish swallowed them then spat then out after a few years and even now people benefit from them. He said, “Do not deny the miracles of the men of Allah, those who do not Love other than Allah (the exalted), as it is only a manifestation of truth.”

As-Sharani states in “the Answers of the ill” that Sheikh Abu Abdullah Al-Hakim At-Tirmidhi came out of one the valleys of Balkh with two books, one was the seal of the men of Allah. They denied him because of these books. They said to him, “You claim people prefer the men of Allah over the Prophets,” they were harsh because of these words. He gathered his books and put them into a chest and threw it into the Tigris. During the pangs of death, he brought out his hands from the water and brought out the chest. He said, “The owner of the sea told me that they have preserved my books until the hour. As the sacred law was revived and by teaching it.”

Imam Ghazali

One of the miracles of Muhammad ibn Muhammad At-Tusi, Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali, which was narrated by Al-Yafa’i from Ibn Al-Milqa from Al-Arshi from Al-Mursi, from As-Shadhali that Sheikh Ibn Hazim came to his companions with a book.

“Do you know it?” He said.
They said, “This is the Revival.” (Revival of religious sciences)

The Sheikh, mentioned, would curse Al-Ghazali and forbid reading this book. He uncovered his body and it showed signs of lashing. He said, “Al-Ghazali came to me in a dream and called me to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). When we stopped directly in front of him, he said, “O’ Messenger of Allah, he claims that I said about you, that what I did not say.” I was ordered to be beaten and I was beaten.”

Sheikh Abu l'Hassan As-Shadhali

Sheikh Abu L'Hassan As-Shadhali was asked,

"Advise me, my beloved."

He said,

"Do not move your feet, except to where you hope for Allah's reward;

do not sit, where you believe that you could become overcome, by disobeying Allah;

and not align yourself, except to he who increases your certainty.

And how few in number they are."

Iyqad al-Himam fi Sharh Al-Hikam by Ibn Ajiba page 114

Sheikh Al-Arabi Al-Darqawi

A man came to the Scholar of our Scholars, Sheikh Mawlaa Al-'Arabi, may Allah be pleased with him, and began to praise him to his face.

So he said to him,

"Do not mislead me with your words.

I know myself, when I am the most virtuous of beings

and when I am the least of beings.

The time in which I remember my Lord;

I am the most virtuous of beings

and the time when I do not remember Allah in,

I am the least of beings."

Or words to that effect.

Iyqad Al-Himam fi Sharh Al-Hikam Ibn Ajiba page 291-2

Ibrahim Ibn Adham

Ibrahim ibn Adham was one of the righteous predecessors. He was known for his piety and acts of worship.

He was once asked, "Have you ever felt happy in the world?"

He replied, "Yes, twice.

The first time, one day, I was sitting and a someone came to me and relieved himself upon me.

The second time, I was seated and someone came and slapped me."
