To Whom We Should Follow

Ek Jamana Sohbothe Ba Awlia

One moment association with Awlia Kerams’ intimacy, it is better than hundred year’s lack of ritual prayers. We are fortunate people that we are the followers of great Pir Mashaek Keram. Our Mashaek keram are the Gaws of particular age. Those are such kind of Awlia, other Pir-mashaek are dependent on them for increasing their spirituality. We are proud that our Mashaek keram has given great compassion on this inferior. To see these great neamat, other darbars are envious about that.

In Bangladesh if our Sirikoti Huzur, Rahnuma-e Shariat and Tariqat Hazratul Allama Alhaj Syed Ahmad Shah (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) had not set his holy feet, we would sink in disappointed. We are lucky that Sirikoti Huzur (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) has given us great sympathy by gifting jannat nashin Jamea Ahmadia Sunnia Madrasah. By establishing Jamea, Huzur Qibla uprooted permanently all kinds of conspiracy of Batil sects. Historically establishment of Jamea has great importance because after establishing Jamea, the Sunni Muslims have found right path of Islam. Jamea is focusing the light of Shariat. Without knowing the shariat, no Muslim can lead his life in the path of welfare, wellbeing and prosperity. Besides there are also need to be Tariqat. Moreover, Sirikoti Huzur, by giving the teaching of shariat he also gave importance of Tariqat. Both are important for leading anyone’s life on right path. For this, Huzur Qibla laid on many Khaneka Sharif in different district in Bangladesh from which pir bhai are achieving and receiving heart’s pleasure i.e. Fayez or Barkat.
When Sirikoti Huzur (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) saw in one of Bashkhali mehfil that there was lack of Hubbe Rasool or love of Nabi Karim Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam in general people’s heart while Huzur Qibla (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) reciting the Aiat of Quranul Karim – “InnAllaha wa Malaekatahu yousalluna alan Nabi; Ya Aiuhallazina Amanu Sallu Alaihe Wasallemu Taslima.” No person sent Durood Sharif to Nabi Karim Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam after reciting this Aiat sharif. Seeing this Huzur Qibla was very much upset. At that night, he had not taken any meal. Next morning Huzur Qibla said that Huzur Karim Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam ordered in dream to establish Jamea and this Jamea would be established in that place where there would be a mosque and a pond and that place would be situated neither in town nor in village.

Everyone was looking for this kind of place and at last, this place was found. This is the place where now Jamea is situated. At the first arriving in that place, Huzur Qibla quoted – Eha Se Elam ke Khushbu Mehek Raha Ha. Huzur Qibla Had given foundation of Jamea in 1954. This was want of age because this decade was such kind of era when it was the hard time to rescue the simple hearted Muslims from madness of batil sects. At this time the struggle of Haque (right) and Batil (wrong), Nur Muhammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi) had taken chief role by raising his voice in establishing Haque (right). From forty to fifty decades it was the golden age of establishing Haque (right) in Chittagong under the leadership of Sirikoti Huzur (Rahmatullahi Alaihi). In this era Hurzur Qibla (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) spent most of the time in Chittagong and with him, his successor quite competent Shahjada Rahnuma-e Shariat and Tariqat Hazratul Allama Alhaj Syed Muhammad Tayyab Shah (Rahmatullahi Alaihi). From his father and pir’s voyage to Bangladesh, would experience about purpose-ideal and aim of Shahen Shahe Sirikot (Rahmatullahi Alaihi).
Kham Karo, Islam Ko Basao! Dhin Ko Bachao!

Huzur Qibla Sirikoti (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) well thought-out and said, “Ek Sher-e Bangla Se Keya Hoga”. To establish sunnat of Habib-E Khoda Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, there need thousand of Sher-e Bangla. For this reason, Huzur Qibla laid the foundation of Jamea Ahmadia Sunnia in the heart of Bangladesh and for the same context, Tayyab Shah (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) established Quaderia Taiyebia Alia in Capital city to save the sunni Muslims from the conspiracy of Batil sects. From this madrasah, thousands of Alem-e Dhin are taught about sunniat and spreading sunniat as well as Hubbe Rasool Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam throughout the world. In this noble work, Alim or Olamas’ contributions are compared to representative of Nabi and Rasool (Alaihimus salam). The person who will get opportunity to serve this kind of Madrasah, they will buy the Jannat in spite of living in this earth and after their departure from this world, they will receive uncountable virtues of Allah for their Sadka-e Jaria. Our Huzur Qibla has given us such kind of opportunity that we cannot afford to give in return anything. So we have to be more conscious about our given duty. If any carelessness occurs from us for our duty, we will suffer in long run. Therefore, Huzur Qibla (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) said that all pir vai should take the service of Jamea at the first position; then worldly occupation and work should take respectively at the second and third position. All good deeds are counted in that process. The message of Huzur Qibla Sirikoti (Rahmatullahi Alaihi):
Mujse Muhabbat Ha Tho Madrasah Ko Muhabbat Karo
Mujeh Dhekna Ha Tho Madrasah Ko Dheko
There were many Khalifas of Sirikoti Huzur (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) who were performed their duty accordingly and for that reason, they were able to rise on the throne of Khilafat. The contribution of Nur Mohammad Al-Quadri (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) who partook principal role to success Huzur Qibla’s mission is outstanding. During the establishing of Jamea, he said – Huzur! Jamea Me Jitne Lohe Ka Joruroth Hoga Hum Dhange Insha Allah. By hearing this speech, it is unutterable how much pleased Huzur Qibla was! I think those days, by pleasing Huzur Qibla (Rahmatullahi Alaihi), Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi pleased Allah Rabbul Ezzat and His beloved Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. There are many Ruhani Bacchas (Sons) of Sirikoti Huzur (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) but Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) was foremost.
Before foundation of Jamea, Sirikoti Huzur (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) asked his muridhan – How should be Jamea? Some of them said that Jamea should be made of fence or tin shed. Then Sirikoti Huzur (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) said to call his dearest murid Nur Mohammad. Sirikoti Huzur (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) asked Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) – How should become Jamea? Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) replied that Jamea should be a strong building made of RCC (Rod-Cement-Concrete) because our Huzur Qibla is Shahen Shah, his Madrasah should be like a Shahen Shah. By listening these words, Sirikoti Huzur (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) was very much pleased. Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) promised with Sirikoti Huzur (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) to give all iron for setting up Jamea and he would not take any food without arranging iron for Jamea. Hearing this Sirikoti Huzur (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) gave him Fayez or Tawajju by slapping on his back and from that day, he had ascended to the way of Tariqat in the highest stage. He was become Oli or Awlia.
After promising to arrange iron, Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) went back to collect iron for Jamea. At that time, he had no ability of buying iron. But on the way there he met with an merchant man who called for him to go with him to auction of scrap of some zip vehicles because Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) was very pious, honest and led his life in a simple way. The merchant thought that if Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) went with him, he would get profit in his business. There the merchant got profit and gave him the rest of the scrap vehicles and there might be almost 20-30 vehicles. By making hole in the field where those materials were kept on, Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) found that there were many vehicles and he sold some of these vehicles and earned a lot of money. From this money, he bought iron and returned to Huzur Qibla Sirikoti (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) and Sirikoti Huzur were so much pleased that he again slapped on his back and Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) soared up to the another higher stage. On that day, Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) was no more a general man but a famous merchant, chairman, councilor and got the important post of the government. It was only possible for his selfless love and immense belief to Murshid Qibla (Rahmatullahi Alaihi). It is the first and main duty for murid to slender without condition to the will of Murshid. This speech pierced into the subconscious mind of Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi). Provision less slender towards pir, it is the stair of ascending of murid’s soul.
Aap Jamea Ka Khidmoth Kare,
Jamea Aap Ki Khidmoth Karega
In the service of Kutubul Ershad Awlad-e Rasool Allama Alhaz Hafiz Quari Syed Muhammad Tayyab Shah (Rahmatullahi Alaihi), Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) was well versed until passing away this earth. He gained the “Khilafat” and adorned the title “Al-Quaderi” from this great murshid. When Huzur Qibla Rahmatullahi Alaihi commanded to observe Jashne Juluse Eid-e Miladunnabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, at first from Khaneka-e Quaderia Syedia Taiyebia nearby Baluardhigi, under the leadership of Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) Julus was held. It indicates the excellence of his position. We can realize, what a high status oli or Awlia he was! It is possible only for his extreme respect, belief and love for his murshid Qibla. He was one of the pillars of Silsila-e Alia Quaderia. He led the duty of Senior Vice-President of both Anjuman-e Rahmania Ahmadia Sunnia and Jamea Ahmadia Sunnia. He also performed social, political, and educational and welfare work where in every side his contributions are noteworthy. He is successful not only in worldly life but also in spiritual life. One of the examples of his spiritual superiority is that once in the Urs Sharif of Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) in Khaneka Sharif, there bought two buffaloes. While the treasurer Jakaria shaheb was calculating about management of the Urs Sharif, he heard some voice that called by his name but he did not give ear to this voice, another time he heard same voice called by his name. Seeing around, he observed that Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) was standing in the khaneka sharif and said him that the buffalo had torn out rope. Then he suddenly went to the field and saw that truly the buffalo had torn out rope (SubhanAllah).

There are other great Khalifas of Huzur Qibla Rahmatullahi Alaihi such as Abdul Khalek Engineer, Abu Bakar Rahmatullahi, Wazir Ali Shawdagar, Aminur Rahman Al-Quaderi, Alhaj Abu Muhammad Tabibul Alam Chowdhuri etc. but the contribution of Nur Mohammad Al-Quaderi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) is outstanding. Pir Sabir Shah Huzur Qibla rightly said that there are alluvial lands, seasons are good and water is available. If we do not perform our prescribed duty accordingly, it is bad luck for all of us. We should follow those great Khalifa-e Ezam to lead our life in the path of satisfaction of Allah and His Rasool Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. Ameen!
