We will quote in what follows Imam Shafi’i’s explanation of the Ghawth as being the Qutb, and this proves its being established and that they refer to one and the same thing, so know this. Verily, the Awliya’ of Allah [i.e. And the states of the Nuqaba’ and the Nujaba’ are veiled from the common, but they are revealed to each other. Another hadith which supports the meaning of many of the above narrations is related on the authority of Sa’d, which states: “Indeed, Allah supports this Ummah by their weak members, through their prayers, supplications, and sincerity,” and in another narration, “Is it not through the weak among the Ummah that you are granted provision and victory?”, 20. [Quran, 5: 35] And wasila (a means of approach) in its general indication includes tawassul (intercession) by persons, and through actions. Verily, the Awliya’ of Allah, no fear shall come upon them nor shall they grieve. If there is anyone in my community, it is ‘Umar ibn Khattab.” [26]. Published. those who believe in the Oneness of Allah (God) and fear Allah much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden), and love Allah much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)], no fear shall come upon them nor shall they grieve. Our Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) then described these people and then read the following Ayah in which Allah (SWT) says in the Qur'an: "Behold! So when the Qutb dies, Allah replaces him with the best of the four Awtad. The word, in its different forms, appears in the Quran over 200 times. The holy Quran says: “No doubt! Books on Awliya Allah As per the Hadith of Bukhari, Muslim and others, there are three categories of people in Muslim Ummah. Reverence for Awliya Allah have been an important part of both Sunni and ShiaIslamic tradition that particularly important classical saints have served as the heavenly advocates for specific Muslim empires, nations, cities, towns, and villages. It is thus stated in the book, Fath al-Majid: The miracles {karamah} of the saints of God {awliya' Allah} are the products of divine attraction and grace, and this affair does not depend upon the person or his knowledge and intention—like the karamah of 'Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) on numerous occasions and the karamah of 'Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) when he came to Iran and talked to Prophet Daniel in the town of Shush. Since my childhood, each year on the 11th of Rabi Al Thaani, I have been attending the proceedings of the anniversary of the passing of Hazrat Ghawth-al-A'zam Syed Abdul Qadir Gilani (Jilani), Rahmatullahi-alayh (Mercy of Allah be on him), the Sultan of Awliya*, (friends of The Almighty) the "Royal Falcon" of the mystic way. It was rather 'Ali ibn Abi Talib ('a) who had come to Shush and talked with Prophet Daniel ('a). Another point upon which the Wahhabis differ with the Sunnis and the Shi`ah is the issue of miracles {karamat}. Nujaba and Abdal.” At the beginning of it, he writes: It has reached me that some of those who possess no knowledge deny what is famously known among the noble Awliya, namely, that among them exist Abdal (substitutes), Nuqaba (chiefs), Nujaba (nobles), Awtad (supports, or pegs), and Aqtab (poles, or axial pivots), while there are numerous hadiths and narrations which affirm their existence and reality. Finally, Ibn ‘Abidin quoted Hafiz Ibn Hajar who said in his Fatwas: The Abdal were mentioned in numerous narrations, some of them authentic (Sahih), and others not authentic. Hudhayfa ibn Yaman said: “The Abdal in my community are in Syria, and they are 30 men on the way of Ibrahim (asws)… And the group (of righteous Awliya’) in Iraq are 40 men… 20 of them are on the way of ‘Isa (asws), and 20 of them have been given some of the instruments which the Khalifa Da’ud (asws) was given.”, 6. And it is incumbent upon Muslims to obliterate them whenever they have the opportunity to do so.7. General wilayah General wilayah is the closeness to Allah of anyone who always prays on time. Further, when he does not get any help from God he throws- himself in His presence and continues in this state, begging and praying and humbly entreating and praising and submitting his needs in fear and hope. Not one of them dies except that Allah replaces him with another one to take his place, and they are now the supports of this earth. Whenever one of them dies, Allah substitutes another one in his place.”, 11. Yet, they persistently find fault with charities, alms and ziyarah to the graves of leading figures of the religion, and consider that all the problems of Muslims emanate from these issues. This indicates that this hierarchy of Awliya’ is not only occupied by men, but also by women. So the hearts of the remaining Prophets and Angels and Awliya’ are to his heart like the light of the distant stars compared to the perfect light of the proximate Sun. The Awliya’ of Allah love Him and strive hard to please Him, while the Awliya’ of Shaytan strive to displease Allah. From this verse there are two criterion of a Wali: A Wali is someone who occupies a very close station to Allah and is protected by Allah from major sins and repetition of sins in general, and kept in a state of obedience. Of course, there are two stones and two hills whose Qur'anic sanctity made Muslims honor them. This page was last modified on 31 August 2012, at 00:28.

Of course, it must be noted that if people honor them, and hold in high esteem the Prophet of Islam (s), the pure Imams ('a), the Qur'an, and the religious personalities, it is because they are among the sacraments of Allah and honoring them indicates the purity of hearts: ﴿وَمَنْ يُعَظِّمْ شَعَائِرَ اللَّهِ فَإِنَّهَا مِنْ تَقْوَى الْقُلُوبِ.﴾, And whoever venerates the sacraments of Allah—indeed that arises from God-wariness of hearts.10.

Also they will never fear for the future on worldly matters. So the dwelling of the Nuqaba are in the Maghrib, the Nujaba in Egypt, the Abdal in Sham, the Akhyar travel throughout the Earth, the ‘Umud are in the corners of the Earth, and the Ghawth is in Makka. He was characterized as "one who had knowledge of the Book," as Allah stated, "One with whom was knowledge of the Book said, 'I will bring it to you before your gaze returns to you…' (Q27:40)", and this is Asif bin Barkhiya (a non-prophet human), the scribe and relative of Prophet Sulayman (as), according to the Tafsir of Ibn ‘Abbas and the majority of commentators. By means of them, Allah brings down the rain, gives victory over enemies, and diverts punishment from the people of Syria.”, 7. It is in Quran - ِ ُمُهَل - نوُقَتَي اوُناَكوَ اوُنمَآ نَيذَِلا - ن َوُنزَحَْي مُْه لََوَ ْمهِيَْلعَ فٌوْخَ لَ اللََّ َءاَيِلوَْأ نَِإ لَََأ It is important to note that for this reason, the Prophet (s) and his successors ('a) and their relics as well as other religious objects must be honored as they are the manifestations of the religion and truthfulness of revelation.11. Allah says in the Quran: The most important issue with regards to seeking help from the Awliya’ Allah (the friends or beloved of Allah) is when they have died or so to say, living in another world, whether this act of seeking help is in the form of du'a (invocation) or asking for some extraordinary acts to be performed. “In the nations before you were people who were spoken to (muhaddathun) who were not Prophets. Whenever one of them dies, Allah substitutes another in his place. So I have collected these narrations in this booklet to be of benefit. Walī(Arabic ولي , plural Awliyāأولياء), is an Arabic word, its lexical meaning being “supporter”, “guardian” or “protector”. Allah says in the Holy Quran “Do not even think of those who are martyred in the way of Allah as dead, BUT THEY ARE ALIVE near their lord and given provision. They substantiate this statement of theirs with the verse, ﴿إِنَّكَ مَيِّتٌ وَإِنَّهُمْ مَيِّتُونَ.﴾, You will indeed die, and they {too} will die indeed,2. So when a need arises among the commonality, the Nuqaba plead to Allah to fulfil it, then the Nujaba, then the Abdal, then the Akhyar, then the ‘Umud, and if they are answered by Allah (it stops with them), and if not, then the Ghawth pleads, and he does not complete his request until it is answered. Awliya Allah, therefore, means Friends of Allah (swt). Thus, it is stated in the book, Fath al-Majid: The holy shrines, sacred places and graves of the awliya' which have become sites of ziyarah, charities, vows, etc. At the time when Europeans are mummifying their great ones and preserving the putrefied bones of inventors in affection for their scientists, why are the Wahhabis trying to destroy the relics and shrines of religious personalities especially the pure Imams ('a) and consider ziyarah to these great personalities as hindrance to development, where in fact these personalities are the fountainheads of guidance {hidayah} and enlightenment {irshad}?

From ‘Ali: “The Abdal are in Syria, and they are 40 men. Do you wish to offer Allah a manifest proof against yourselves? Quran Says about Awliya Allah: “No doubt! One of the most common verses used by those who believe that the Awliya of Allah are alive and can hear and answer their supplications is when Allah Says in the Quran: And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah, “They are dead.” Rather, they are alive, but you perceive [it] not (Quran … 4.
