Talash-e-Mard-e-Haq, Allama Iqbal's Advice & Masnavi of Rumi (R.A.)

Iqbal & Rumi: The Wisdom of East

Tribute to Allama Iqbal on his 74th death anniversary. A new blog for his spiritual mentor Maulana Jalal-ud-din Rumi (Rehmatullah Alaih).

http://rumiurdu.blogspot.com/

The Masnavi is a poetic collection of rambling anecdotes and stories derived from the Quran, Hadith sources, and everyday tales. The Masnavi is a series of six books of poetry that amount to about 27,000 verses or 54,000 lines. The title Masnavi-Ma'navi means "Rhyming Couplets of Profound Spiritual Meaning."

It is advice of Allama Iqbal to make Rumi (R.A.) your companion in the path of seeking truth. Here is this advice from Books Javed Nama and Asrar-e-Khudi.

  1. Allama Iqbal said he had read the Masnavi 10 times, Well Iqbal was genius person really, All the sources of Allama Iqbal were spiritual, not western.

  2. For those who always speak against the Saints & Friends of Allah and dazzled by Western civilization. Please read the last two verses of Surah Fatiha

    6. Guide us to the Straight Way
    7. The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace , not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger , nor of those who went astray.

    Who have bestowed with Grace: (True Believers )The Prophets and Friends of Allah
    Who got anger and went astray in history: Dis-believers (Kuffar)

    Answer is simple. This criteria is set by the Owner of this universe who is The Creator of everything.

    1. brother sura e fateha mein maghzub aur zaalleen dependant nahi hain ek dusray pe bal ke independant hain yani ae Allah na toh hamein maghzub logon mein shumar kerna aur na he gumraah logon mein.
      aur maghzub se murad woh ahin jo beshak ek bar bhi maghzub huey.

      aqal mandd ko ishara kaafi hai.

    2. Yes these are independent. Tafaseer mein in ka zikr hai. Tafseer-e-Usmani hai k

      جن پر انعام کیا گیا وہ چار فرقے ہیں نبیین و صدیقین و شہداء و صالحین کلام اللہ میں دوسرے موقع پر اس کی تصریح ہے اور المغضوب علیھم سے یہود اور ضالین سے نصاریٰ مراد ہیں۔

    3. Well if somebody speaks against Auliahs w/o required knowledge, then this act reflects their _Lesser Intellect_ actually... As it is their _Deficient Intellect_ that sanctions them to talk about a subject that they don't know anything of...
      Also on the Internet, one comes across many people who seem to own "a mouse and keyboard", and they need to comment on _every_ topic too, as their arrogance instructs them to... IMO, it is better to leave them to themselves and pray for them (though one doesn't want to pray for them...)

      Take care, Sir!

    5. Jazak'Allah Faqar nice post, Auliahs work according to inspirations (Ilham) received from Allah. Everyone get inspirations from Allah but only believers and Auliahs recognize these inspirations.

      Allah’s Inspiration To Every Man: Conscience
      http://www.harunyahya.com/en/books/543/Articles__I_/chapter/771

      A great scientist and inventor Nikola Tesla (Raised by the Ottoman Empire) has more than 700 patents to his name including alternating current, motor, coil, wireless communication... He received inspirations from ALLAH and invented many inventions...

      "Tesla engaged in reading many works, memorizing complete books, supposedly having a photographic memory. Tesla related in his autobiography that HE EXPERIENCED DETAILED MOMENTS OF INSPIRATION. During his early life, Tesla was stricken with illness time and time again. He suffered a peculiar affliction in which blinding flashes of light would appear before his eyes, often accompanied by VISIONS. Much of the time the visions were linked to a word or idea he might have come across, at other times they would provide the solution to a particular problem he had been encountering; just by hearing the name of an item, he would be able to envision it in realistic detail. Modern-day synesthetes report similar symptoms. Tesla would visualize an invention in his mind with extreme precision, including all dimensions, before moving to the construction stage; a technique sometimes known as picture thinking. He typically did not make drawings by hand, instead just conceiving all ideas with his mind. Tesla also often had flashbacks to events that had happened previously in his life; these began during his childhood..."

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikola_Tesla

      Technology is a mercy from Allah. The Unknown Genius Raised by the Ottoman Empire, Nikola Tesla:

      ...Let us consider some of the technological advances of the 20th Century; alternative current, the electric engine, radio, television, the development of mass communications, radar, sonar, cable-free energy, remote controls, thermodynamic engines, hydroelectric power plants, the arc lamp, the steam engine, lightning conductors, frequency measurement, speedometers, the Tesla coil, magnetic resonance, transformers, satellite communication technology, the neon lamp, fluorescent light, X-rays, the microwave. Amazingly enough, these discoveries belong to a single scientist. This genius, known to many as “the architect of the 20th Century,” is Nikola Tesla, a scientist with more than 700 patents to his name....

      http://www.harunyahya.com/en/works/108296/Technology_is_a_mercy_from_Allah__The_Unknown_Genius_Raised_by_the_Ottoman_Empire_Nikola_Tesla

      I posted above information because many of us (today's Muslims) don't believe on INSPIRATION (Ilham) and VISIONS of Auliahs. If a simple scientist can get inspirations from Allah for inventions then why not Auliahs?

  4. FB Update:

    These two lines by Senior Columnist Abdul Qadir Hassan in today's article speak a lot,
    ایک صوفی نے جو پیشگوئی کی تھی وہ میں مناسب وقت پر حالات کے اشارے اور کنائے دیکھ کر بیان کروں گا جس کے مطابق پاکستان کو کوئی اور گروہ پاکستان بنائے گا. میں اس گروہ کی آہٹ سن رہا ہوں

    Some words to the wise are enough. Wasif Ali Wasif (r.a.) already foretold this in his book Guftugoo-9, lets read it again...!! InshaAllah

    1. پاکستان کو کوئی اور گروہ پاکستان بنانے کا مطلب کیا یہ ہے کے وو گروہ غیر پاکستانی ہو گا ؟ امام مہدی کا گروہ ؟

    2. My guess would be that something will happen (world events) that will compel patriot expat Pakistani to come back to Pakistan, among them will be a person who will lead Pakistan. A time will come in Pakistan when pent/shirt wearing expat Pakistani's will be leading prayers in Masajids. There is definitely a group of nationalist Pakistani youth (20-40 years old) residing outside of Pakistan who are educated and know Islam well enough that they are Muslim by choice. Allah knows best.

    3. میں اس گروہ کی آہٹ سن رہا ہوں
      If we read AQ Hasan's last few columns we can see that Hasan sb, in the end of the columns, says that he has hopes from Jamat-e-Islami and Imran.

      I am also waiting for Abdul Qadir Hassan's next article :)

      Kuch cheezon par parda para rehna behtar hota, Allah ke raaz Allah hi janay.

      Mein to Sufi Barkat Ali (r.a.) ki book se aik baat parh kar darr gya tha. Unhon ne kaha tha "Agar mein app logon ko Allah ke raaz bata doon to app foran agay bata do ge. Iss liye mein app ko har baat nahin bata sakta."

      So mere liye to ye kafi hai jo Sufi Barkat Ali (r.a.) ne farma diya k Pakistan ki haan aur na mein aqwam-e-alam ke faislay hon ge. InshAllah

  8. Agreed, it has 100% possibility that Siachen and bhoja air disaster is some covert operation of the USA.
    CIA aik bar jiss ilaqay may ghuss jati hay to wahan pay ajeeb wa ghareeb waqiat ronmaa hotay hain.
    Iss qisam ke kaarwai ka koi saboot nahi hota, magar jab 50 sall baad secret files disclose ho jati hay to phir hamary mainstream controlled media ke naam nihaad danishwaron ke haqeeqat ka pata chalta hai

  9. Apart from considering weather weapon or HAARP, it is possible for USA, with conventional weapon i.e a missile hitting a civilian aircraft from above a high altitude drone or some stealth aircraft in the presence of heavy rain and thunderstorm no one can trace a missile from a high altitude stealth spy plane.
    The eye witness report that plane turn in a fire ball in the air.Our radar did not trace the American stealth helicopters in the abbotabad operation.So it has 100 percent chance that USA use his advance technology for fulfilling her evil designs in Pakistan and also in some other countries

    1. I think its a conspiracy theory. Our CAA and others departments are corrupt. So these kind of incidents take place. I think we have to look into our system , processes etc. Not blame to outsider's always.

  10. Jazaaq ALLAH for this post.The so-called 'enlightened' breed of Muslims have learned whirl dances from Jalal-ud-din Rumi's legacy but the truth is something else as highlighted in this post. It clarifies everything very well! - Regards - Roman Ahsan.

  12. Salam Alaikum All

    First of all Faqar sahab, you are doing great and thanks for all of your efforts.

    @Baktar-Noor
    I was reading the previous thread where Baktar-Noor sahab mentioned that Abdul Wahab sahab of tabhleeghi jamat sent messages to all of the elders to pray istaghfaar. I would like to know more about that , what would be the reason behind it, did abdul wahab sahab came to know something regarding pakistan and future? what are the talks going around with tabghleeghi people?

    Thanks
    Syed Hussain

    P.S. Please congratulate me as I just have Allah's blessing in the form of a baby girl.

      Further, Haji sb's message speaks about painful days ahead for Pakistan for we as a nation; do not seem to be willing to turn to Allah and do a solid tauba before the great purge begins!

    3. Thanks both of you and your wishes.
      I have two daughters now (first one is two years old) and the hadis of Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa(Sallala-hu-Alai-he-Wasslam) came in mind occasionally that if a person have two daughters and he grow them up , give them good tarbiat and education and marry them to good places, he and me will be together in jannat.

      Thanks again

  14. Read once again what a few days earlier on this blog i sated about these(judges of the upper level) puppets or actors in the evil drama for deceiving the masses

    "In Pakistan the most corrupt men are the judges of the supreme court and high courts including chief justice who is wasting the priceless time of the nation in only extending of dates in the corruption cases of the ruling devils,since last 3 or 4 years.
    After the completion of the government tenure, these corrupt devils will fly to their original masters e.g USA,England or some other western country.Every one know that the government is doing corruption in every matter but due to this lazy and useless judiciary no one is punished or sent to prison.Army chief and chief Justice is only actors in the drama played by the corrupt system. They are doing their acts according to their roll in this evil drama. they all are the same kind of people."

  16. As i sated a few days earlier these judges in the upper level of judiciary are nothing more than actors or puppets in the evil drama
    imposed upon us by foreign powers.These judges have no courage or zammeer to act upon. They talk about rule of law, what is rule of law? it is one on the basis of which
    the foundation of this country(Pakistan) is layed, it is part of the constitution that no law should be made or implemented in the
    country which is contradictory to the islamic law or Quran and Hadith.Now what this corrupt judiciary did for rule of law in pakistan since last couple of years? is it islamic verdict to a criminal? or at least it has some sort of justice? every one know it well.
    People wake up hum ney ghalat logon se tawaqaat wabasta kiay hain.
    ye west se maroob sooted booted kalay angrez hamaray liay kuch bhe acha nahi kar saktay.
    ye log ya to apnay nafas ke ghulam hain ya power ke poojha kartay hain.
    Ab iss evil dramay mai kuch rang bharnay ke liay kuch chehron ko tabdeel kia jayga aver kuch naiy chehray hamaray awam ko bewaqoof bananay ke liay
    iss dramay mai shamil kia jaiangay aver sadah looh log samjhain gay ke haalaat badal gaiy hain

    shame on people like these corrupt judges and the government devils
