THE FIFTY STATIONS IN THE CHISHTIYYAH SOJOURN TO ALLAH TA’ALA – PART 1

“And those who struggle and strive in Our Way, most certainly We will guide them to the Paths leading to Us.” (Qur’aan)

Compiled from the Teachings and Writings of Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Jalalabadi and Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi Quddisa Sirruhuma

THE SEVEN INTRODUCTORY STAGES

  1. Fanaa-fi-Shaikh (Immolation of one’s self at the altar of the Shaikh’s direction)

• I’tiqaad (Faith)—To believe that this Shaikh’s ta’leem and tarbiyat (teachings and training) are the most beneficial to one in the whole wide world.
• I’timaad (Confidence)—To be confident in the ta’leem and tarbiyat of the Shaikh to the extent that one does not exercise one’s own opinions and ideas.

  1. Mutaala’ah (Study)

• Shariat wa Tasawwuf Part One—Thrice the whole kitaab and thereafter the Chapter of Akhlaaq; i.e. the detestable traits and the praiseworthy traits applying what is read to one’s life and judging oneself in hypothetical situations.
• Lectures of Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (Rahmatullahi alaih). In his encyclopaedia of Mawaa’iz one will find a wa’z of Hazrat Thanwi on every station of this incredible sojourn to Allah Ta’ala.
• Malfoozaat of Hazrat Thanwi (Rahmatullahi alaih)
• Mawaa’iz and Malfoozaat of Hazrat Maseehul Ummat (Rahmatullahi alaih)
• Writings and compilations of Hazrat Hakeemul Ummat and Hazrat Maseehul Ummat (Alaihimar Rahmah)
• Ashrafus Sawaanih
• Hayaat-e-Maseehul Ummat
• Behishti Zewar

Note: Shariat wa Tasawwuf, Behishti Zewar and one of the remaining kitaabs on the list are compulsory for daily study.

  1. Payment of Debts

• Debts owed to people
• Outstanding Zakaat, Fitrah, etc.

  1. Huqooqullah (Rights Owed to Allah)

• Discharging of all Qazaa Salaat and Sowm
• Absolute obedience to the Shariat

  1. Huqooqul Ibaad (Rights Owed to the Creation of Allah Ta’ala)

• Study Huqooqul Islam of Moulana Thanwi and daily take stock of rights due to others.
• Study Hazrat Thanwi’s wa’z titled Khairul Irshaad li Huqooqil Ibaad (A Noble Instruction in regard to the Rights of Allah’s Creation).

  1. Muhaasabah (Stocktaking)

• Daily reflect over your actions and deeds. Express shukr over a good deed and resolve to continue with it. Express Towbah over an evil deed and resolve to abstain from it.

  1. Muraaqaba-e-Mowt (Meditation on Death)

• Daily reflect on death and the events to transpire thereafter.
• Alternatively study a kitaab on the events of Mowt and the stages thereafter. Hazrat Shaikh Zakariyyah’s Zikr-e-Mowt translated into the English language with the title Remembrance of Death is a valuable kitaab in this regard.
• Study Hazrat Thanwi’s wa’z Muraaqabatul Ardh (Meditation on the Earth).

PRAYER IN CONGREGATION IS ONE OF THE SUNNAH OF GUIDANCE AND THE IMPORTANCE OF SALAAH

Abdullah bin Mas'ud Radiallahu Anhu reported:

He who would like to meet Allah tomorrow as Muslim, he should persevere and be on guard with regard to observing these prayers (Salaah), when the call is announced for them (Athaan), for Allah has ordained for your Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam the paths of right guidance, and these (prayers) are among the paths of right guidance.

If you were to pray in your houses as this man who stays away (from the mosque) and prays in his house, you would abandon the practice (Sunnah) of your Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, and if you were to abandon the practice (Sunnah) of your Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, you would go astray.

No man purifies himself (makes Wudhu), doing it well, then makes for one of those mosques without Allah recording a blessing for him for every step he takes and raising him a stage for it, and effacing a sin from him for it.

I have seen the time when no one stayed away from it (Salaah), except a hypocrite, who was well known for his hypocrisy, whereas a man would be brought swaying (due to weakness) between two men till he was set up in the saff.
