The Life of Hakeemul Ummat (52)

10. The Du’aa of Buzrugs

10.1 The Importance of Du’aa

In a statement of Nabi-e-Kareem (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam), he says:
“Should I tell you of that act which will make you victorious over your enemies and increase your livelihood? During the day or night, when you have the opportunity, make du’aa [supplicate] unto Allah Ta’ala for your need.”

Du’aa is the weapon of Muslims. For this reason the sinless body of Ambiya (Alaihimus Salaam) would frequently and commonly engage in du’aa. Among the causes of the calamities and destruction which have hit Muslims this day and age is that they do not resort to du’aa in their affairs.

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi was yet in the world of the souls [Aalam-e-Arwaah] when the Ahlullah became engaged in du’aa for him. When he came to this world then not only did the du’aa in absentia of the Buzrugs of that time remain with him, the occupants of the world of barzakh [life in the grave] maintained their focus of attention to him.

Similarly, when he would go to any Buzrug he would request du’aa.

What sort of du’aa would the Buzrugs make for him and what effects did it yield? A brief account is presented here.
