On Friday 10am, Hazrat Maulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (db) delivered a 25 minute Bayan at Khanqah Imdadia Ashrafiya, Karachi. Every word of Hazrat Wala Db was full of the Love of Allah (SWT) and gave us a glimpse of Hazrat Wala’s Nisbat e Ehsani & Dard e Dil.
Everyone present on this occassion was amazed by the effect of Hazrat Wala’s Bayan and felt extreme love of Allah (SWT) in every word of Hazrat Wala’s Bayan.
Hazratwala (db) later added, listen this bayan atleast 3 times.
>> Pehli dafa main safai hogi, Dosri dafa main ragrai hogi, aur Teesri dafa main chamka diya jaye ga.
Friends, sacrifice yourself for Allah. Whoever sacrifices himself for the Master of the Universe, Allah grants him the pleasure and delight of all the women of the world, the taste of all the sweetmeats of this world and the pleasure of all the biryani and kababs of the universe in His name. The capsule of all the pleasures of this world is in the name of Allah.
If He had no taste, how could He have created taste in these things? If Allah had no delight, how could He have created taste in kababs and chickens and how could He have juice in sugar cane? If He has no juice, how can He create juice in sugar cane which provides sugar for the whole world?
Moulana Jalalud-deen Rûmi (Rahimahullah) says,
“O heart, is sugar sweeter or the Creator of sugar?” Is the moon more handsome or the Creator of the moon?
Where are going after leaving Allah? The consequence of all those involved in romance is the organs of urine and faeces. Thousands of people have lost their honour there.

So my dear friends, how do we attain that rank where our hearts can be brimming with intense love for Allah so that we may become totally obedient to Him?
Remember that we can never be totally obedient to Him until we develop intense love for Him. Why? Because if we love our hearts more than we love Him, then we will not hesitate in the least to break His commands should we experience any difficulty to our hearts.Consider the following example: A beautiful woman passes by. Our heart is inclined to look at her. If we love Allah intensely (more than our heart) then we will displease our heart and please Allah by not looking at her. If, on the other hand, we love our heart more, then we will go ahead and sin by casting a lustful glance at her,thereby pleasing the heart and at the same time displeasing Allah. Thus in order to stay away from sins, it is necessary that the love of Allah be more than anything else.

Friends of Allah, Love of Allah February 6th, 2009
Once while I was traveling through the city of Kanpur on my way to visit Mawlana Siddique Sahib, I happened to come upon a particular place where many businessmen of Kanpur had gathered. Mufti Manzoor Sahib of Jami’aatul ‘Uloom was also present as part of that gathering. The businessmen appointed Mufti Sahib as their spokesperson to inquire from me regarding some matter that had been troubling them. They inquired, “It has been stated that individuals need not be very much involved in this world and to set aside worldly affairs. It will then become difficult to go about having sleepless nights in order to take care of the various tasks regarding the businesses, such as to deal with the union, to order the merchandise etc. If no love is involved therein, how do we make our businesses flourish? Businessmen normally keep busy in that regard.” I responded to them stating that Allah Ta’ala does not restrict the legitimate love of one’s spouse, children, parents or even one’s business, in fact, even intense love for them is permissible. All Allah Ta’ala is asking from us is to overcome all the attachments of this world with the love of Allah.
وَالَّذِینَ اٰمَنُو ٓااَشَدُّ حُبَّالِّلّٰہِ
(Surah Al-Baqarah; Ayah 165; Juz 2)
If the love for one’s mother, father, spouse, children, business and factories etc. is fifty percent, then increase your love for Allah to fifty-one percent. Just increase your love for Allah one more percent and you will become a complete believer. Allah Ta’ala has used the word ‘ashad‘ in the Qur’an. You can ask ‘Ulema regarding the difference between ashad and shadeed.
Ashad and shadeed love will be tested. How does one know if someone is overcome by the love of Allah or by the love of wealth? It will be examined by the means of a test. For example, there are two candidates running in an election, both of them are your friends. Both of them will come to you to convince you to vote for them. Now how would it become clear that who you love the most? You will vote for the one who you love the most. Similarly, when it comes to the battle between Allah’s Will and ours, then it will be tested through whether you follow the orders of Allah or your own desires. Then it will become apparent whether the love of Allah is dominant in you or whether it is the love of one’s desires.
This is the reason Prophet (May Allah Bless him and grant him peace) would make the following supplication: “Oh Allah, I ask of Your love, and the love of that person who loves You and of those actions which attract Your love. Oh Allah, make Your love greater to me than the love of myself, my family and of cold water.” Aameen!

Hazrat Mawlana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Sahib (Damat Barakatuhum) commenced his discourse by relating a recent incident of a scholar who came from Rangoon which is located in Burma. Hazrat Wala (DB) said: “He came from Burma, Rangoon, from a lengthy distance. This is the real thirst. All of you people live in Karachi and deem it difficult to come here. Where is Rangoon and where is Karachi? Rangoon is in
Burma.” In other words, look at the distance between Rangoon and Karachi.
“Is attaining the friendship of Allah an ordinary gift? If one has a connection with an ordinary police inspector or a or a senior government official, then people proudly boast about the connection they share with such and such person. Then what would one say about a person who has a connection with Allah Ta’ala? Who is greater than Allah? No one is greater than Allah, He is the Greatest. In turn, a connection with
Allah Ta’ala is the greatest gift, but to attain a connection with Allah Ta’ala one must have Taqwa.”
Allah Ta’ala has said, “None is My friend except those who are muttaqi (God-fearing),” those who are fearful of Allah Ta’ala and protect themselves from all sins. This is why it is very important to leave sin. Leaving sin is the base of attaining the friendship of Allah. If one does not leave sin, then one will be stuck in a state of sinning until one dies, and will face Allah Ta’ala in that state, as a sinner.
Therefore my friends fear Allah. While fearing Allah do not displease Allah regardless of how much struggle one may have to endure. Do not displease Allah Ta’ala even for a single moment whether the nature of the sin is minor or major. Allah Ta’ala is the Greatest, a minor sin is also considered a grave sin to the One that is the Greatest.
The blood shed by sacrificing one’s haram desires is the horizon of becoming a saint. Taqwa means to curb the fulfilling of the desires of the heart. Shed the blood of all your haram desires and all the four horizons of your heart will become red. The sun of this world rises from one horizon, that is from the east. But when the saints adopt piety by sacrificing all their haram desires and enduring grief in the path of Allah, then all the horizons of the heart become red and the sun of Allah’s friendship and relationship rises in the heart.
And if one did not sacrifice his desires, then what will he achieve? He will attain darkness upon darkness and pollution over pollution. He will get a foul odour and a disgraced name. No one on earth will call him Hadhrat. When the creation comes to know that a person is the head (of evil), they snatch all noble titles away from him. One of the punishments of sin in this world is that all titles of honour are snatched away from one in this world.
What will be the condition of that heart whose every horizon has the sun of Allah’s proximity rising from it? When a man called Khurshid (sun) came to me one day, I recited the following couplet to him:
When Khurshid obtained the creator of Khurshid (the sun) in his heart, then ask Khurshid the condition of his world.
خدا سے بڑھ کر کوئی باوفا نہیں
فرمایا: دیکھو ماں کی گود میں بچہ کتنے چین سے رہتا ہے، ماں کی گود سے اگر بچہ کو کوئی چھین کر لے جائے تو اس بچہ کا کیا حال ہوتا ہے، ماں باپ کی یاد اسے کس طرح پریشان کرتی ہے، لیکن ماں کی محبت بھی مخلوق ہے، سوائے اﷲ کے ہمارے حال پر دائمی رحم کرنے والا کوئی نہیں ہے، ماں باپ کا رحم بھی ان کی ذاتی صفت نہیں اﷲ تعالیٰ کی عطا ہے، اگر اﷲ ان سے وہ صفت چھین لے تو ماں باپ بھی رحم کرنے والے نہیں ہیں، جب کلکتہ میں قحط سالی ہوئی اور لوگ بھوک سے مرنے لگے تو ماں باپ نے بچوں کو کاٹ کر کھالیا تھا، ہاؤڑا میںجب ریل گذرتی تھی تو بچوں کے ڈھانچے راستہ میں پڑے نظر آتے تھے لہٰذا دنیا میں کسی کی محبت کا کوئی بھروسہ نہیں، ایسی اولاد بھی ہم نے دیکھی ہے جو ماں باپ کی موت کی تمنا کرتی ہے، ماں باپ کے قتل کی سازشیں کرتی ہے، ایسی بیویوں کی بھی باتیں سنی ہیں جنہوں نے شوہروں کو زہر دے کر دوسرے آدمی سے شادی کرلی۔ دنیا میں کسی کی محبت کا بھروسہ نہیں ہے مگر ایک اﷲ ہے جوزمین کے اوپر بھی ہمارا ساتھ دیتا ہے اور زمین کے نیچے بھی ساتھ دیتا ہے، ایسا باوفا، ایسا پیارا، ایسا محبوب، ہماری جان اور دل کو ایسا آرام سے رکھنے والا کائنات میں کوئی نہیں ہے، ذرا رومانٹک طبقہ کے لوگوں سے پوچھ لو جو یہ سمجھتے ہیں کہ عورتوں کو دیکھنے میں اور عورتوں کے ناچ گانے میں بہت مزہ آتا ہے، ان کی کھوپڑیوں پر قرآن شریف رکھ کر پوچھو کہ تمہاری زندگی کیسی ہے؟ وہ قسم کھا کر کہیں گے کہ جب سے ہم نے روزہ نماز چھوڑا ہے، اﷲ سے دور ہوئے ہیں، جہنم میں جل رہے ہیں
اُف! کتنا ہے تاریک گنہگار کا عالم
انوارسے معمورہے ابرار کا عالم
اﷲ والوں کے دل میں جو چین و سکون ہے وہ بادشاہوں کو کہاں نصیب ہے
شاہوں کے سروں میں تاجِ گراں سے درد سا اکثر رہتا ہے
اور اہل وفا کے سینوں میں اِک نور کا دریا بہتا ہے
اﷲ والوں کے سینوں میں نور کا، سکون کا دریا بہتا ہے۔
ماخوذ: دستکِ آہ و فغاں – الشیخ عارف باللہ حضرت اقدس مولانا شاہ حکیم محمد اختر صاحب دامت برکاتہم
When the sun (which is only a creation) in the sky can convert impurities to fragrant flowers and is creating bread in the oven, then what will be the condition of Allah’s sun of grace? When the rays of Allah’s mercy shine on the evil thoughts in the heart, those thoughts are changed to the light of piety. Allah does not require capability or a certificate for giving. Maulana Rumi () have said;
When Allah can grant filthy impurities such garments and Noor, then what will He be able to give his pure servants. Jalalud-din Rumi () is at a loss of vocabulary to express what bounties Allah grants those salikeen and murideen and those who tread His path.
When the sun of Allah’s grace rises on people’s hearts, their evil character changes to virtuous character. The love which was being sacrificed for decaying corpses is now being sacrificed for Allah in prostration. That love is expressed now by placing the head on the ground in prostration by saying, “Subhana Rabbiyal A’la”. Honor belongs to the one who places his head at the feet of the Creator of the head. He will have no difficulties.

You all believe in Maulana Thanwi (Rahimahullah). He says that if a businessman shows you a sample, and gives you an item which differs from the sample, you will call the businessman a cheat and a deceitful person. You will never buy anything from him again.
Shaytan always deceives. He shows you the cheeks and eyes of attractive people. What sample he shows you and what item he gives. He pollutes you in the organs of feces and urine. But you still have not left Iblees’ tail.
People say what must we do, there is nudity everywhere. Uncovered women do not give us a chance. I say why have you placed your nose under Shaytan’s tail. Safeguard your gaze.
Practise on the blessed statement of Rasûlullah Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. You will achieve piece. Allah will fill your heart with the sweetness of Iman and His love for every glance that you protect.
Friends, do not waste your lives. I am telling you with a painful heart and what more can I tell you? As Hadhrat Thanwi (Rahimahullah) said that if he had the power, he would have placed his heart in his friends’ hearts.
Allah has indicated two prescriptions of obtaining taqwa (piety) in these two verses. In the light of these verses I have showed you two ways of becoming a saint and becoming wealthy with the currency of the hereafter. When the entire world will kick you, only this currency will benefit you. What is this currency? It is the friendship of Allah. In order to attain taqwa, Allah has indicated in one verse that we should live with the people of taqwa. If you do not live with the people of taqwa, you will be consumed by negligence.
