Allah Almighty says to the Prophet (sws) that he will also leave this world as the previous prophets did. A ḥadīth is very commonly known that Prophet said a Muslim must visit his grave to say asslamaulaikum when he comes for Haj or umrah. If this narrative is authentic, then don't you think it is in contradiction of the verse I have referred to above?
I saw a verse inscribed on a wall of a Pakistani Muslim boutique that says like this: "Allah allah karne se na milay allah, Allah walon se milne se miljaye allah (You can reach God by calling Him. The only way to access Him is to join the company of His friends)." I don't remember the exact sentence but it was like this, my question is-is this shirk (polytheism) or just a sufi prose?
Could you please provide me with the names of at least few books on tasawwuf/tareeqat/tazkiya mysticism that are based on the Holy Qur’an and Sunnah. I want to study such works as are very reasonable and logical. Which books are reasonable on this specific topic according to Farahi School?
After a deep study of Tazkia-e-nafs by Amin Ahsan Islahi and Burhan by Javed Aḥmad Ghamidi I am clear about tassawuf. But just want to know the exact nature of the karāmāt because if people get benefit from them then is it not good? What is the difference in the sufi karāmāt and spiritual experiences of yogi meditation?
What is the status of the practice of celebratings urs of the dead sufi saints? Was this practice conventional during the lifetime of the Prophet (sws)? What did the Prophet (sws) use to do when he visted graves? Did the Khulafa-e Rashideen celebrate any urs for the Prophet (sws) after his passing away?
If Sufism is not Islam then what should a Muslim's attitude should be about the great Sufis like Baba Frid Ganj Shakar, Khwaja Moinuddin Ajmeri, Khwaja Qutbuddin Bakhtiar kaaki and others?.
I have read numerous hadeeth that greatly encourage Dhiker(Ziker). The prophet said that the only regret that the people of paradise will have is not doing enough of it.
