In Memoriam

Today is the anniversary of the passing of Hz Khadim e Mohabbat (r). In commemoration a brief snippet from his teachings is offered below.


” Whatsoever becomes a veil obstructing the witnessing of the Real is an Iblees (satan) for the traveller on the spiritual path, even though it be the Garden. In fact at one stage even the higher visions become “Iblees” (obstructions). That which tears away all veils at every station is only the love of the Messenger of God, upon him be the Blessing and Peace of God.”

Abdal Hameed Adam was a well know Urdu poet who frequented the majalis of Hazrat Khadim e Mohabbat along with the likes of Saghar Siddiqui, Jigar Muradabadi and Khawaja Ibadullah Akhtar. It is related that these famous verses of Adam were actually first composed in the shaykh’s company and intended as referring to him.

جو تیرے فقیر ہوتے ہیں
آدمی بے نظیر ہوتے ہیں

تیری محفل میں بیٹھنے والے
کتنے روشن ضمیر ہوتے ہیں

ہے نور ِعبادت سے چہرہ ضوبار ہمارے راجہ کا
اور عشق کے تیروں سے چھلنی دل افگار ہمارے راجہ کا
ہر سمت سے میکش آ آکر عرفان کے ساغر پیتے ہیں
توحید کا بادہ خانہ ہے دربار ہمارے راجہ کا
اخلاص و وفا کے ہیروں سے بھرپور ہیں اسکی دکانیں
ہے شہر ِ تصوف کی زینت بازار ہمارے راجہ کا
ارباب ِوفا کے ہونٹوں پر ہیں تزکرے انکی عظمت کے
ہر خضر ِ طریقت کرتا ہے پرچار ہمارے راجہ کا
ہر کنج میں نخل ِتازہ ہیں ایمان و سکوں و الفت کے
اک خلدِبریں ہے دنیا میں گلزار ہمارے راجہ کا
وہ حسن کے جلووں میں ڈوبا ابھرا تو مجسم حسن تھا وہ
اک بار کیا جس نے آکر دیدار ہمارے راجہ کا
مشرق سے لے کر مغرب تک ہیں چرچے انکی سیرت کے
بے مثل ہے سارے عالم کردار ہمارے راجہ کا
ہم لوگ کسی بھی حالت میں محکوم نہیں ہیں غیروں کے
ہے راج ہماری دنیا میں اے زار ہمارے ر۱جہ کا

Iman (Faith)

Iman is the ornament of the faithless which is always in danger of being lost. It can really only be protected fully by Ishq (Love).

Hz Khadim-e-Mohabbat

Your Little Kingdom

The Kingdom of God is vast and the dominion that each man has been granted in the form of his own self is a province of that Kingdom. Therefore competent and efficient management of this dominion is loyalty to the Center.

Hz Khadim-e-Mohabbat (ra)

Nuzl and Nuzul

Nuzl…is the guest…and his Nuzul (descent) has it’s own glory. Nuzul e Nuzl (the descent of the guest) occurs only where there is forbearance, good character, liberality and patience. The descent will never occur where there is arrogance (which is “high” already) because a descent is always towards what is lower. Therefore  the descent is always towards the lowlands of forbearance and good character and cannot be towards the rocks of arrogance and hypocrisy.

The descent of knowledge (nuzul e ilm) only occurs so that we may ascend towards That from where knowledge has descended. Moreover only he who is “fit” for descent will be capable of ascent and it is in the nature of true knowledge (ilm) to lead upwards to Source of all knowledge, that which causes us to fall further is not knowledge at all.

Make your “self” ready like soft and fertile land so that you may be a worthy receptacle for the “descent” of knowledge. This is true “mujahida” (spiritual struggle) and this is a sign of acceptance (qaboliyat).
