Auliyaa (friends) of Allah are a pillar of light in every era. A whole era benefits from their spiritual high ranks, benevolence and blessings. Not only in the subcontinent of Indo-Pak, but if we look all around the world, we see that the extent to which these ‘chosen people’ (Auliyaa) have helped, worked for and protected Islam and Muslims, no other king or ruler or any person at the highest level (in worldly affairs) could ever reach that extent! The oncoming blessings of these Auliyaa are still continuing regularly, even today. Their tombs are still a place for reverting for helpless, afflicted people who visit these tombs, which, by Allah’s Will, are a source of peace and harmony for them.
In reality, the caste of Sufis is one. Neither does anyone except Allah, Accept them (Sufis), nor do Sufis accept anyone else but Allah! A Sufi is obsessed with the remembrance of Allah! A Sufi has no wish for any worldly gains, no link with this temporary world, which is why immediate distances and deaths have no affect on them. Allah Makes them like an immortal and Keeps them alive with their concentration and focus on Him only. Sufis are those people whom Allah Rewards!
Thus, for the inner peace and spiritual peace of our hearts, it is an excellent source of knowledge and a best act to read and implement the sayings and acts of these Auliyaa. Keeping this point in mind, we have made an effort to put in writing the teachings of the lover and follower of Muhammad (صلّى اللهُ عليهِ وَ سلّم), our spiritual teacher, Hazrat Khwaja Sayyed Umoor-ul-Hassan Shah Suharanpoori (May the Mercy of Allah be upon him), and the greatest Khalifa, Hazrat Shah Abdul Latif Meerthee (May the Mercy of Allah be upon him). I hope this effort will be a guiding light for all followers of Shah Umoor. This effort will lead to an increase in good, guidance and correcting of the society, and collective religious benefits, because the life of these Auliyaa has been a source of goodness and blessings. Their teachings and sayings clearly spread the message of goodness. The religious and spiritual work of Sayyed Umoor-ul-Hassan (May the Mercy of Allah be upon him) is an example of guidance for every sect of society. He spent his whole life in this path of Sufism, unlimited help of the needy people, and for the fulfillment of the evergreen purposes of Islam. His way of guidance and leading the people, resulted in enlightening thousands of closed and dark hearts. He is an enlightening pillar of Silsila Chishtiya Sabriya.
I hope that his sayings and wordings will give our hearts the fruits of righteousness. It will lead to good acts which is a characteristic of the believers of Allah. Especially for today’s young generation, this effort will teach them the fact that the religious and spiritual work done by these Auliyaa in every era, will be beneficial for the betterment of today’s era too. The intention with which this effort is being done, it will certainly be Accepted by Allah, because it is only meant for goodness and betterment of the society.
