Adhkiya: Excerpts of Preface

By Abdul Shaheed Azhary

These eleven lines are regarded as the preface of the book. The entire book is designed for those who want to get success in the next world. One has to prepare himself to obtain this goal. First step is to make his inner feelings and thoughts clear of any kind of dirts and the vices. The easiest way to do so is to adopt one of the pious Muslim(Sheikh) as his master, and obey his commands and rulings. أقرأ باقي الموضوع »

وَلِكُلِّ وَاحِدِهِمْ طَرِيقٌ مِنْ طُرُقٍ

يَخْتَارُهُ فَيَكُونُ مِِنْ ذَا وَاصِلاَ

Among the many tariqahs available, each one selects his own tariqah, and thus he reaches the goal through that tariqah.
9

كَجُلُوسِهِ بَيْنَ الأَنَامِ مُرَبِّيًا

وَكَكَثْرَةِ الأَوْرَادِ كَالصَّوْمِ الصّلاَ

like sitting midst the people as educator, increasing the number of wird (accustomed worships) such as fasting and prayer
10

وَكَخِدْمَةٍ للِنَّاسِ وَالحَمْلِ الحَطَبِ

لِتَصَدٌّقٍ بِمُحَصّلٍ مُتَمَوِّلاَ

and(like) service of people( ie scholars), loading wood so he can earn money and give in charity.
11

مَنْ رَامَ أَنْ يَسُلُكَ طَرِيقَ الأَوْلِيَاء

فَلْيَحْفَظَنْ هَذَا الوَصَايَا عَامِلاَ

Whoever wants to enter the path of awlia, let him keep the following instructions.

Every waliyy has his own way to adopt tariqah. It is not restricted to reciting some kind of dikr or following a specific Sheikh. There are many ways to follow; some people prefer a way while some other people prefer another way. The author provided us with some of the popular examples.

1.  The first example given here is to work as an instructor, teacher, lecturer or in any kind of educational field giving clear instructions to the way of Allah along with controlling his movements and activities.

2. Second example is engaging himself in the worship of Allah like performing Salah (prayer) or Sawm (fasting). He has to do them in large quantity.

3. The third example is serving the people. The word people indicates to religious scholars and sufis.(Ref: Hidaytul Azkiya)

4. The forth example is working hard to earn some money for feeding the poor and destitute. He carries the wood from the forest to make firewood and sells it in the market. Then he spends in charity the money he earned

4 إنَّ الطَّرِيقَ شَرِيعَةٌُ وَطَرِيقَةٌ وَحَقِيقَةُ فَاسْمَعْ لَهَا مَا مُثِّلا

The path is shariah, tariqah and haqiqah. Listen to it carefully with examples.

5 فَشَرِيعَةٌ كَسَفِينَة وَطَرِيقَةٌ كَالبَحْرِ ثُمَّ حَقِيقَةٌ دُرٌّ غَلاَ

Sharia is like ship and tariqah is like sea. Tariqah is as pearl in the sea.

6 فَشَرِيعَةٌ أَخْذٌ بِدِينِ الخَالِقِ وَقِيَامُهُ بَالأَمْرِ وَالنَّهْيِ انْجَلاَ

Sharia is to stick by the religion of Allah, to obey His orders and avoid his prohibitions.

7 وَطَرِِيقَةٌ أَخْذٌ بِأَحْوَطَ كَالوَرَع وَعَزِيمَةُ كَرِيَاضَةٍ مُتَبَتِّلاَ

Tariqah means to follow precautions, like wara’a (to avoid lawful things in fear of getting in to unlawful things) and to make strong determination, like riyadah (to exercise the soul and body to be accustomed to do good deeds) engaging in only Allah’s thought. أقرأ باقي الموضوع »
