The sainthood of Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him)

The sainthood of Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him)

 

Somebody asked Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him): When did you first become aware that you are a Wali (Lit. friend) of Allah Most High?

 

Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him) replied:

 

Translation: When I was 10 years old and I would step out of my house to go to a Madarsa, I would see angels walking around me.  When I would enter the Madarsa, I would hear them call out: “Move aside!  Make room for the friend of Allah Most High to sit!

 

(Bahjat Ul Asraar, Pg. No. 21; Qalaaid Ul Jawahir, Pg. No. 9; Akhbaar Ul Akhyaar Farsi, Pg. No. 22; Safinatul Auliya, Pg. No. 63)

 

It is mentioned in Qalaaid Ul Jawahir:

 

Translation: Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him) says:  When I would attend the Madarsa in my childhood, an angel in the guise of a human being would come to me everyday and take me to the Madarsa.  He would order the students to make room for me and would sit with me until I returned to my house.  I never knew that it was an angel.  Once I asked him:  Who are you?  He replied:  I am an angel.  Almighty Allah has sent me to remain with you in the Madarsa until you stay there.  (Al Qalaaid Ul Jawahir, Pg. No. 134, 135)

 

It is mentioned in Bahjat Ul Asraar and Qalaaid Ul Jawahir:

 

Hadhrat Muhiyuddin (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) says: As a child, whenever I would decide to play with the children, I would hear a voice: O privileged and fortunate one!  Come to Me, and I would run to the lap of my mother.  (Bahjat Ul Asraar, Pg. No. 21; Al Qalaaid Ul Jawahir, Pg. No. 9, Akhbaar Ul Akhyaar, Pg. No. 51)

 

Just think about the status of Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him)!  From childhood itself, he is being instructed to turn to Allah.  He is being protected from the material world and its pomp.  It was not his position to be busy in this material world, but it was to remove those submerged in the love of this world and immerse them in the love and remembrance of Allah Most High and to illuminate their darkened hearts.
