Teacher at Darul Uloom Deoband
I returned from Malaysia after attending the 3 day-Islahi Program guided by Hazrat Maulana Hafiz Peer Zulfiqar Ahmad Naqshbandi Mujaddidi DB. This journey has been very fruitful in terms of spirituality and knowledge.
I, along with a group of 18 teachers at Darul Uloom Deoband led by Hazrat Maulana Salman Sahab Bijnori Naqshbandi Mujaddidi , had gone to take part in it.
In this program Peer Sahab DB tried his best to cover all the pearls of Sharia and Tasawwuf which help a Salik to lead a pious life.
As usual the talks of Hazrat Ji had a great impact on the audience. People could not help weeping while listening to his speeches or saying Aameen to his answered prayers.
Out of respect and love for Darul Uloom Deoband, Hazrat Ji had named this gathering as “ ملتقیٰ علماءدیوبند” (the Gathering of Deobandi Ulama). In fact, some years back when Hazrat Ji had visited Darul Uloom Deoband, he had lauded the institute professing the fact, “I have visited more than 57 countries around the world – east and west; Africa and America. In every country I found the graduates of Darul Uloom have already been serving Islam.”
Among the teachers of Darul Uloom Deoband were also those who had attended the Majlis of Hazrat Ji for the first time, specially Mufti Muhammadullah Khalili, Head of Internet department of Darul Uloom Deoband and Qari Aaftab Sb. They were also of the opiniion that :ایسا شیخ نھیں دیکھا ۔ (Never ever did we see such a Shaikh.)
Personally, as always I felt some unique features in Peer Sahab DB. “A look at the bright face of Hazrat Ji prompts the heart to immediately testify that such a face cannot be of any wrong person. It is very difficult to turn the sight away from that face.”
اتنی روشن ہے تری صبح کہ دل کہتا ہے *یہ اجالا تو کسی دیدہء نمناک سے ہے
(Your morning is so much illuminated that my heart witnesses, This light is due to any tearful eye.)
The talks of Hazrat Ji provide answers to my questions and remedy to my shortcomings. It has happened with me not only once, twice but thrice. I don’t say it happens with everyone but in my case I have observed it.
I have also observed that Hazrat Ji takes much care of the Sunnah. While mentioning the Prophet ﷺ tears would trickle down from the eyes of Hazrat Ji every time.
اک پل بھی محبت چھپ نہ سکی = جب تیرا کسی نے نام لیا
(Whenever anyone mentioned you, my love for you could not remain a secret.)
Many people ask that they want to do Bai’t on the hands of Hazrat ji DB. But it is very difficult to see him and get his Sohbah.
I would like to tell them if once they get a chance to do Bai’t on his hands and then they keep on listening to his speeches or studying his books, they would get the same benefit like those who get a regular chance to see and get his Sohbah. Because Hazrat ji DB’s Nisbat and Tawajjoh is very strong. If you perform your Ma’moolat punctually, you would find ALLAH Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, which is the purpose of a Momin’s life.
As far as Malaysia is concerned, it is a beautiful, clean and peaceful country. A large number of Indians, especially from Chennai, reside in Kuala Lumpur. A great number of Hindu brethren from Chennai dominate the gold business.
