Some erroneous type of concept of many people has been developed towards the
acknowledgment of Aulia (Saints) in the religion of Islam. Some of them do not
know about the reality of this magnificence Aulia Akram (Holy Saints) and some
of them say that, These Sufis and Saints are baseless since there is not any
type of Zikr in Quran and Hadith. For both the type of communities, ALLAH ALMIGHTY and HIS PROPHET MUHAMMED (S.A.W.) has delineate by giving orders in the
Holy Quran and Sunnah.
In the Holy Quran;
LA ILLAHA ILLAL LA HO WAHDAHO LASHARIQA LAHO, ALLAH revealed:
Behold! Verily on the friends Of Allah there is no fear, nor shall they grieve;
those who believe and (Constantly) guard against evil. For them is Glad Tiding,
in the life of the Present, And in the Hereafter: No change can there be in the
Words of Allah . This is indeed. The supreme Felicity. [10:62]
In another words Allah have revealed in the Holy Quran:-
None one can be its guardian except Al-Muttagun (The pious, Saints) But most of
them know not [8:34]
Allah declares that:
"Verily, he who has purified the Nafs has attained victory, and he who has
despoiled it has lost.
Allah also states that:
"That day of Qiyamat (the day of doom) neither wealth nor sons will benefit
anyone, but that person who comes to Allah with a reformed hearts".
Through these Surrahs reference of Holy Quran it is undoubtedly defined that
Aulia Allah (Saints) are not erroneous but also ALL MIGHTY ALLAH keeps them His
comrade. Also Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W.) has briefly clarified this issue of
Aulia Akram (Saints) in Hadith.
Hazrat Saad Bin Abe Waqas (R.A) has narrated that, Once Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W.)
said that "Allah alleviates the nations but through His devotees friends".
In this Hadith which is narrated by Hazrat Saad Bin Abe Waqas (R.A.), Prophet
Mohammed (S.A.W.) has defined that Allah helps the nation as a sum or
individually only because of His friends which are Aulia Akram (Saints).
Hazrat Eabad (R.A.) has narrated that once Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W.) said that"
In MY nation there are forty Abdals (devotees) because of whom the system of the
world exists. Cause of them rainfalls and due to them you are helped.
Hazrat Annas (R.A.) narrates that once Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W.) said that "This
world will not remain vacant from forty Abdals (devotees). Those who will be
from the grandsons and nation of Hazrat Abraham (A.S.) and due to them you will
All the authentic principals of Aulia Akram (Saints) are to be found in the Holy
Quran and Hadith. This clearly untrue the saying, that Aulia Allah (Saints) are
baseless or flawed and since there is not any Zikr of these Sufis and Saints in
Holy Quran and Hadith is absolutely erroneous and against the teaching of Quran
& Hadith. Even though, Allah and His propitiate Prophet Mohammed ((S.A.W.)) have
explicitly defined about these enormous celebrities. As we can see that these
Aulia Akram are the major part of Islam and also they are one the most lightened
path for the true believers and followers.
The spiritual statue of this Saints Undoubtedly is below the prophets, yet they
are recognized as true successor of them. Their spiritual heights and
achievements are enormous, glittering and unforgotten as they have attracted the
suffering masses to their fold through their supernatural acts and mystic deeds.
The suffering humanity not in their life time but even after passing of hundred
of years after their breathing the last continues to be blessed even to this day
and look up to them relievers of their worldly needs spiritual problems such as
incurable, misfortunes, untold, miseries and natural calamities.
