Sufism is new hope for Muslims all over the world



Sufism is new hope for Muslims all over the world


If Allah loves a people, then he afflicts them with trials. Whoever is patient has the reward of patience, and whoever is impatient has the fault of impatience.

Source: Musnad Ah?mad 23122, Grade: Sahih


Allah swt says in the Quran:



And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sâbirun (the patient),( Holly Quran 2:155)

In This Blog I am presenting some benefits of a forgotten Sunnah of our Prophet PBUH,.
Here in this blog I have discussed 3 important issues of Muslim Ummah, (1) The Joblessness of Muslim Youths, and present harsh conditions for muslims, poverty and social evils, (2) Revival of a Forgotten Sunnah of our Prophet PBUH and it's contribution in re-uniting muslims.
(3) Third issue is our lack of unity and sectarianism.
InshaAllah the revival of this forgotten Sunnah will solve our all three problems at once and for all and we muslims will again taste the taste of golden days of Rashidun Caliphate.
Each & every sunnah of our Prophet PBUH is a blessing for all of us.
Reviving a sunnah will revive our dead ummah again to life.

In the time of trouble and hardship and poverty & distress and joblessness the Muslims needs someone who gives them support and gives them hope and gives them shelter and gives them strength to endeavor the hard times and the Muslims need someone who has sympathy with them and who supports the grieving muslims. Who will support muslims?.

The real and genuine and pious Muslim whom we will select can support muslim youths, he can give them hope and strength to bear the hard times, he can listen different problems of Muslims and he can resolve their problems in the Mosque, we do not have any need to go to the courts of justice to solve our own problems.

He is our Judge, he can solve our family problems, he can solve our business problems, he can solve our property problems, he can solve our social problems, then why we are wasting our time and money in the courts and advocates.

Our youths are in trouble, our young girls are without marriages and our old people are worried about the future, in this situation who will give hope and who will give shelter and support and who will give courage to bear the test of time ?, it is we, we must support ourselves.
For this, we need to revive a dead Sunnah of our prophet PBUH, reviving a dead sunnah has great rewards according to a Hadith.




This is a long discussion therefore I request you to read it patiently, Allah will reward all of us, inshaAllah.







I only request from the readers that they only read this article and decide after thinking positively.
I will first write here some scientific survival benefits of this Islamic institution for humans.
Here in this article I am not telling you that you should follow it, nor I am forcing anybody to accept it, here I only want to clarify that  this Islamic institution has some benefits. it has survival benefits for the Muslims in particular and beneficial for the humankind in general.
In the last, I will try to prove that how this islamic institution is beneficial for the survival of muslim population, there is a big misconception in all sects of Muslims that it is a Biddah or an innovation in Islam, even the followers of this Islamic institution consider themselves to be biddatis, but actually it is their misconception too, the most beneficial aspect of Islam is in such obscured condition only due to some people who were not pious but they posed themselves as pious and they defamed this institution of Islam, I will discuss these charlatans and clowns in details in the end.
First, I will show some most important survival benefits of , this Islamic institution,  until recently I too had misconceptions about this Islamic institution  but The God guided me in correct time and I reached on good terms with this most neglected Islamic institution .




Today, i.e. 2018 AD or in modern days we Muslims are passing through very tough time, even although there are 50 % Muslim countries in the world and the Muslims are second largest in population in the world and by 2070 the Muslims will be in majority in the world as all other religions are shrinking in terms of followers even atheism is also shrinking after a up-surge during 1990.
Here we are concerned about only Muslims, we do not consider here about the affairs of non-muslims, we muslims are in trouble, the muslims are being targeted and the muslims are blamed for the acts of terrorism, the terrorism is used against muslims as a tool for defaming us and our religion, enemy governments of the world is using the terrorism as a tool to target our religion, they found this tool very effective and false terrorists acts performed by the enemies of Islam are labelled on the muslims, the terrorists acts are actually either performed by the non-muslims or they are produced by payments to the criminal parties, anyhow the blame is only on muslims, Muslim youths are persecuted on the false grounds of terrorists acts which they never performed, the muslims are denied visas, the muslims are denied jobs and the muslims are discriminated in all aspects of the life, the result is the weak financial condition of muslims in each and every country, muslims are forced to live in poverty, they are forced to live in ghettos, they are kept in constant fear and muslims and Islam is mocked and every chance of mocking of Islam is not spared, be it cinema or be it news in the newspapers or be it cartoons, this strategy is followed in each and every enemy country, even in Muslim countries muslims are kept under fear, false or fake islamic jihadi groups are formed by the enemies of Islam and they are operated by the enemies and they are shown in news that these and those group is Islamic and they did this and they did that, in reality the enemies are doing all that shit and blaming on muslims,.

Any normal intellectual person can think that “How come the muslims do this, even though they are weak and they are in minority?”.
All the acts of terrorism have only benefited the enemies, then “How come muslims are constantly doing these to benefit the enemies?”.

The present time is a time of test for muslims, the present time is the time of punishment for the muslims, the God is punishing the muslims for the disobedience they did in the recent past, when the God has given them a chance to rule the entire world, but the muslims ruled it by their own
kingdoms and empires and they did not tried to improve the religious conditions of other non-muslims, the muslims kept the majority of non-muslims in the darkness of bad religions and now the God is punishing muslims for keeping other humans in darkness, for the God all humans are equal, all humans are his own creatures, all humans are equally lovely, the Jews were punished in the past several times due to the same mistake, the same mistake the muslims have done and now they are in torments and under punishment, now only the God can forgive muslims, and the way is to ask him his forgiveness, the God is merciful he can forgive us at any moment, the thing which is separating us from forgiveness is the disintegration of muslims, the lack of unity of muslims and plenty of sects in Islam, even if we all muslims ask forgiveness to the God he will forgive us at this moment and he will restore our past glory instantly.

This is the scenario today for the Muslims, what we need now? We need unity of Muslims?, then  I am not telling that our hundreds of sects should merge together to form a Muslim unity, no it is not necessary, it is not even necessary!, the thing which we need is only love and brotherly & cardinal relations among all the sects of Islam.

There are many Islamic reformist groups who know the present bad conditions of muslims and they are trying to reform muslims since last 100 years, there are many reformist groups in each and every sect of islam, there are really some good people, they have good intentions, they are dedicated and they are really pious and genuine, what they all are doing since last 100 years ?, they all are trying to make muslims on true islamic paths, they all have genuine intentions, they belong to all sects, they can be Sunnis Barelvis, , they can be Tablighis, they can be Wahhabis, they can be Salafis, they can be ahle Hadiths, they can be Shia, they can be Deobandis, they can be Biddatis, and they can be any muslims, but they all have good and genuine intentions, they all have good and dedicated pious people in them, they all are working to improve the muslims since last 100 years, but their efforts are not bearing any fruits, the condition of muslims is constantly deteriorating exponentially, in spite of all these reform work, the condition of muslims is in constant declination since last 100 years, strange ! isn't it. 
The reformers are doing their best efforts to improve the conditions of muslims, they are teaching true Islam to the muslims, they are teaching pure hadiths, pure Quran, pure and clean Islamic lessons, these all reformers of all sects are using pure Islam for teaching, but the results are not satisfactorily, the condition of muslims is deteriorating day by day and since last 100 years the muslims are in social decline in spite of all these reformist efforts.
Where is the error ?, are those reformists not using correct Islamic teachings?, No, they all are using correct Islamic teachings, in spite of all those reformers belonged to different sects, but they all are using same true Islamic teaching, the Quran & the Hadiths are same in all sects, the sects differ in minor matters, these minor matter does not have any big and substantial bad effects, these differences are in some customs, in some rituals and in some practices, such differences are grossly considered as innovations or Biddah, these innovations are not serious to cause a great decline in Muslim ummah and these innovations are not serious enough to cause great deterioration of the muslims all over the world, then what is the error ?, if these biddahs are not serious, then where is the error or mistake  ?
The Answer is that....
All these Muslim reformers are lacking one common thing in their syllabus or in their curriculum, what is that thing?
That thing is...
These all reformers are not providing the things which the Muslims as humans want; the Muslims are after all human beings, they too need some things which all humans needs, the humans have psychology, and the psychological necessities must be fulfilled to lead a happy life.
The Original Islam, which Prophet Mohammad PBUH preached had that psychological ingredient, but after the death of the prophet Mohammad PBUH and after the abrupt termination of the Rashidun Caliphate that psychological factor disappeared from the muslims, only true Islamic teaching survived, that psychological factor was not written or recorded one, therefore it got easily evaporated from the Muslim society after the catastrophic termination of the Rashidun caliphate, .
What was that Psychological ingredient?, why it is secret, why it remained obscured till now ? How it remained obscured centuries till now ?
Now I will disclose this secret, actually all secrets in world are not kept hidden, many great secrets are kept open in front of the eyes of general people only they are merely not noticed by the people, therefore they remain as a secret, if we keep something as a secret, then people will surely try to find it out due to curiosity, This Islamic psychological ingredient too is not completely obscured but it was so badly abused and misused by some charlatans in the past that the people turned away from it completely, and hence this ingredient became invisible and we muslims got deprived from its benefits.
I will now describe it first scientifically and then you will understand it completely and you will recognize its benefits.
That psychological ingredient for the humans is the “Psychological desire of Humans to follow & admire a leader”, “even though the leader is abusive and even though he has some human weaknesses in him.”

The human psychology is such a complex phenomenon of mind and intellect that is responsible to form our personality, our instincts and our desires are governed by our survival tactics incorporated in our psychology and finally into our genome through the course of millions  of years of development and survival strategies which our ancestors faced back in history.
All humans have a natural desire buried in his subconscious mind for admiring and following a leader, we want to follow a leader, we want to admire a leader, we want to respect an elderly person of any religion or faith, it is in our genome, it is in our psyche, it is an essential part of our survival tactics, back in millennia, our ancestors were successful in survival in harsh conditions only due to following the group leader who succeeded in rescuing our ancestors safely in a safe place, in a cave or on a tree or even on the other bank of a river.

This is Just a brief part of a long psychological lesson...
In the below paragraphs copied from Wikipedia, I just copied to show you that it has scientific basis, and these paragraphs are just a drop in an ocean, for details please read by clicking the Links given below.

Need to Belong & need to Follow

Belongingness is the human emotional need to be an accepted member of a group. Whether it is family, friends, co-workers, a religion, or something else, people tend to have an 'inherent' desire to belong and be an important part of something greater than themselves. This implies a relationship that is greater than simple acquaintance or familiarity. The need to belong is the need to give and receive attention to and from others.

The need to belong is a goal-directed activity that people try to satisfy with a certain minimum number of social contacts. The quality of interactions is more important than the quantity of interactions. 


Just knowing that a bond exists may be emotionally comforting, yet it would not provide a feeling of full belongingness if there is a lack of interaction between the persons. The belongingness hypothesis proposes two main features. First, people need constant, positive, personal interactions with other people. Second, people need to know that the bond is stable,  So, the need to belong is not just a need for intimate attachments or a need for connections, but that the perception of the bond is as important as the bond itself. Individuals need to know that other people care about their well-being and love them.
Lack of constant, positive relationships has been linked to a large range of consequences. People who lack belongingness are more prone to behavioral problems such as criminality and suicide and suffer from increasing mental and physical illness. Based on this evidence, multiple and diverse problems are caused by the lack of belongingness and attachments. It therefore seems appropriate to regard belongingness and attachments as a need rather than simply a want.
Roy Baumeister and Mark Leary argue that belongingness is such a fundamental human motivation that we feel severe consequences of not belonging. If it wasn’t so fundamental, then lack of belonging wouldn’t have such dire consequences on us. This desire is so universal that the need to belong is found across all cultures and different types of people.

Abraham Maslow suggested that the need to belong was a major source of human motivation. He thought that it was one of 5 human needs in his hierarchy of needs, along with physiological needs, safety, self-esteem, and self-actualization. These needs are arranged on a hierarchy and must be satisfied in order. After physiological and safety needs are met an individual can then work on meeting the need to belong and be loved. According to Maslow, if the first two needs are not met, then an individual cannot completely love someone else.

According to Baumeister and Leary, much of what human beings do is done in the service of belongingness.  Human culture is compelled and conditioned by pressure to belong. The need to belong and form attachments is universal among humans. Those who believe that the need to belong is the major psychological drive also believe that humans are naturally driven toward establishing and sustaining relationships and belongingness.

Evolutionary perspectives.

One reason for the need to belong is based on the theory of evolution. In the past belonging to a group was essential to survival: people hunted and cooked in groups. Belonging to a group allowed tribe members to share the workload and protect each other. Not only were they trying to ensure their own survival, but all members of their tribe were invested in each other's outcomes because each member played an important role in the group.  Most people no longer belong to tribes, but they still protect those in their groups and still have a desire to belong in groups.


The need to belong is rooted in evolutionary history. Human beings are social animals. Humans have matured over a long period of time in dyadic and group contexts. Humans evolved in small groups that depended on close social connections to fulfill survival and reproductive needs. Unlike other species, humans receive most of what they need from their social group rather than directly from his or her natural environment, suggesting that the human strategy for survival depends on belonging. This explains why a large body of evidence suggests that people are happier and healthier when they experience social belonging. In contrast, lacking belonging and being excluded is perceived as painful and has a variety of negative effects including, shame, anger and depression. Because belongingness is a central component of human functioning, social exclusion has been found to influence many behavioral, cognitive, and emotional outcomes. Given the negative consequences of social exclusion and social rejection, people developed traits that function to prevent rejection and encourage acceptance.

Humans have a profound need to connect with others and gain acceptance into social groups. When relationships deteriorate or when social bonds are broken, people have been found to suffer from depressive symptoms. Having a greater sense of belonging has been linked to lower levels of loneliness and depression. Although feeling disconnected from others and experiencing a lack of belonging may negatively affect any individual, those who are depressed are more sensitive to these painful experiences. Due to the importance of social experiences to people’s well-being, and to etiology and maintenance of depression, it is vital to examine how depressed people’s well-being is enhanced or eroded by positive and negative social interactions.

Evolutionary leadership theory analyses leadership from an evolutionary perspective. Evolutionary psychology assumes that our thinking, feeling and doing are the product of innate psychological mechanisms. These mechanisms have evolved because they enable people to effectively deal with situations that (directly or indirectly) are important for survival and reproduction (reproductive success).

Evolutionary theory suggests that both leadership and followership were important for the reproductive success of our ancestors. Evolutionary leadership theory was introduced by Professor Mark van Vugt, Professor of social and organizational psychology (VU University Amsterdam and University of Oxford) in the book Selected: Why Some People lead, Why Others Follow and Why it Matters (Van Vugt & Ahuja, 2010). In the earlier German books "Evolutionäre Führung" (2006) and "Natürlich führen" (2013) by Dipl.-Psych. Michael Alznauer (Germany) the theme of leadership is also approached from an evolutionary viewpoint but with a slightly different focus.

The theory distinguishes itself from other theories of leadership by stating that:

leading and following are adaptive behavioral strategies that have evolved to solve social coordination problems in ancestral groups (e.g. moving to new areas, big game hunting or conflicts with other groups).
the relationship between leaders and followers is fundamentally ambivalent. The leader can abuse his position of power for his own benefit at the expense of others (see also the section leadership and dominance).


Humans evolved as social animals. The group offers protection and cooperation in hunting, gathering and sharing food to make group membership attractive to the individual. Some form of coordination may benefit group activities. Research shows that groups with leaders generally do better than groups without a leader. The core premise of evolutionary leadership theory (ELT) is that the primary function of leadership lies in facilitating group performance and effectiveness.

Considerations for followers.
If leadership benefits group performance then it is in the evolutionary interests of individuals to follow. ELT uses game theory to show that it is often more attractive for individuals to follow or not follow. When deciding whether or not to follow the individual will have two considerations:

the added value of following a leader
who is the right person to follow in this particular situation.
Evolutionary leadership theory assumes that these considerations (and other considerations about followership) are affected by evolved psychological mechanisms. These "instincts" determine the way we respond to leaders (even in modern times). We see that when there is no clear need for leadership, people react negatively to attempts to influence them. ...............

In modern times our subconscious mind make our youths to admires Heroes, Heroines, Players and wealthy persons, even in modern day our political leaders successfully fool us to vote them, the leaders are successful only due to psychological blackmailing of people's minds. up-till now you might have noticed that the humans always forms associations, clubs, unions and group and social gatherings, religious people generally form associations and meetup group, even the atheists too have clubs and unions where they find some spirituality, there are churches of Satan, atheists social clubs, the all other religions have spiritual leaders, the pagan polytheists have spiritual leaders and people follow them, people admire them and even though their spiritual leaders are charlatans people still follow them, .Therefore they are united in spite there are thousands of sects in them, & they are benefiting by following their preachers.

Therefore, the muslims too are humans, so the Muslims also need and the Muslims also have a buried desire in their genome to admire a leader and to follow a leader, after all the Muslims too are human beings, but unfortunately after the abrupt termination of the Rashidun caliphate the muslims lost the true leadership to which they can admire, But in the time
and life of prophet Mohammad PBUH the muslim ummah had a charismatic leader in the form of Prophet Mohammad PBUH and all muslims were admiring him and all were happy to follow him in spite he over burden muslims by Daily five times prayers, 30 day continuous Fasting and every three to four month alternating battles and Charity tax and many more burdens on muslims but those muslims were happily following all these and admiring the prophet PBUH and even they were ready to sacrifice their life for the prophet Mohammad PBUH. Why this desire of following the Prophet Mohammad PBUH was in those muslims ?, it was only because of love, if you love someone, you do all the things which he wants from you to do, all these burdens of worship were nothing in front of the love of a leader, these burdens are the tests of the God for the followers of the Islam even today, at the time of the prophet PBUH the Jews were frightening and they warned those muslims about the burdens which the prophet PBUH imposed on the muslims, there is Hadiths recorded in the Hadith books that the Jews were warning the people that your prophet will overburden you with charity tax and other demands and emotional blackmailing and he will make your life miserable by his demanding nature, and etc, but the muslims who had psychological desire to follow the prophet Mohammad PBUH overcame all these burdens and followed him, they loved him, .

Today we find the daily five time prayers very boring and burdensome only because there is none in front of us to admire and follow, if there happened to be any pious Muslim leader such as Caliph Abu-Bakr (God Bless him) today, we may have found our prayers tasteful, the taste is in love, if you are in love and your lover gives you bitter fruit you will eat it as it was a sweet fruit.
Therefore, you will surely taste the real taste of prayers Namaz and fasting and Zikr and other Islamic acts when you will fall in love with a pious Islamic leader father figure, whatever he will tell you, you will do it.
Our Daily 5 time prayers are burden and boring for us only because we do not have someone to love and we do not have love, our imam in our mosques is our paid servant, we do not love him.

Therefore today in spite all our reformers are trying very hard to unite us, we are not uniting, we are not uniting only because we do not have a central figure or leader to unite with, Now the Salafis tell that the Prophet Mohammad PBUH is our leader, yes, correct, He is our guide and leader, but our subconscious mind see him very remote, we need immediate leader to admire and follow, this is our psychological urge,
our psychological need, our inborn instinct and our instinct cannot cope with a leader separated by 1440 year gap with us. We need a living leader.

Therefore the all our reformers are right and correct in their teachings, syllabuses, and curriculum,  only they have to add leadership in the syllabus, our modern islamic teaching is lacking in SPIRITUALITY, our mosques are devoid of SPIRITUALITY, we need Spirituality, up-till now you might have noticed that the humans always forms associations, clubs, unions and group and social gatherings, even the atheists  too have clubs and unions where they find some spirituality,
there are churches of Satan, atheists social clubs, the all other religions have spiritual leaders, the pagan polytheists have spiritual leaders and people follow them, people admire them and even though their spiritual leaders are charlatans people still follow them, . Therefore they are united in spite there are thousands of sects in them, & they are benefiting by following their preachers.

You might also have noticed that the Tableegh Jamat has large following in all Asian countries and even in western countries, this large following is only because of the people wanted to be associated, even though the  Tableeghi Jamat do not have a Caliph like leader, but this Jamat makes area wise and mosque wise Ameers, and common people love to follow the ameer
 and the followers of this Jamat admire the  head of this Jamat and people subscribe this jamat and attend its gatherings as this jamat provides them some social association and somewhat provides them satisfaction, that satisfaction for that the muslims are thirsty since last 1440 years. There are other minor groups who have a caliph like leader and they follow him and they are satisfied and benefitting, these minor groups are Dawoodi Bohra and some Shia sects.

Therefore it is highly in need that we muslims must have a really pious and dedicated and genuine leader father figure in
each of our mosque to follow him, he will provide us the spirituality for which we are thirsty and hungry, he will provide us in him a leader to which we will follow and we will admire him, He will unite us, he will unite all our sects, we have all true teachings of islam intact with us, our all sects are true and correct, no sect is deviated from the islam, all sects are dedicated and all sects want us to follow true islam, .
If we will have a Islamic leader in each and every corner of our locality, then we will taste the true taste of our daily five time prayers, our fasting’s will be a delicacy for us and our Islamic tax will be blessing for us. 
Our all social problems will be solved in his guidance, our Dowery problem, our all other social evils will evaporate.

Our modern muslims think that there are some sects which are indulged in innovation and Biddah, such activities as to revere the dead saints or walis and celebrate their death anniversaries as urs.


These Urs and other activites are actually our hidden desire to admire a leader, these poor biddatis/ innovator muslims are doing what our instinct dictates them, our psychology has an urge to follow a leader, and by this case of revering the dead saints or walis, we want to quench our thirst which
is buried since centuries, what we can do if our leaders are died, we poor people do not have living leaders, these poor biddati muslims are innovating in the love of Islam, in the love of the prophet PBUH and in the love to love a leader, what we poor people can do if we do not have any other opening to exhaust our natural urges., all the innovations are nothing but these are acts of love and acts of our urges which is in our genome, the God cannot punish what which is natural, our instincts and our nature are created by the God.

(((We do not consider our political leaders as our true leaders; they are charlatans and puppets of enemies))). There might be some good people in politics but it is better to ignore all politicians and politics in general.


There is no need to blame all sects of islam for deviation, all our sects are innocent, what they are doing as deviation is nothing but our psychological needs, therefore we must stop blaming each other, there is no benefit in blaming each other, our enemies are benefiting only, our enemies are using us, they are making us fight and they are benefiting by making us weak.

In the last, I wish we had a pious Muslim person sitting in each mosque to which we might admire, we might follow him, we love him, he guide us in our religious and non-religious
matters, if such person is not there then we must make SOMEONE TO SIT THERE, we must make him our leader by taking his hand in our hand, this practice is called Bayah or Bayat, .

Only such persons sitting in the mosques can provide us spiritual nutrition, we are deficient in spiritual nutrition since millennium, such person need not be a descendant of the prophet PBUH, he need not be any member of a series of the saints and walis. This is a correct Sufi, he need not be the descendants of the prophet PBUH, he need not be a link of the chains of the Saints, he need only be a pious muslim.
The prophet said that “ The one who is pious is lovely in the sight of the God, whether he be a Negro or an Arab, Black or White is no distinction”.

In the life time of the prophet Mohammad PBUH the muslims had a leader to love and admire, after his death the muslim selected Four Rashidun Caliphs, but after the unfortunate and abrupt termination of the Caliphate the muslims came under a state of spiritual coma, after a long period of 200 years of coma muslims woke up from this coma, and the early pious muslims scholars provided common muslims a spiritual platform, such pious muslims were the early collectors of Hadith, then there came the Four Imams, the Hanafi, the Maliki & the Shafii and the Hanabalis after them
followed by jurists and fiqah writers, after this some pious people provided the spiritual food to the muslims and these early pious people were termed as SUFI.

The earliest Sufi's were pious muslim scholars who were in love with the God and his final messenger prophet Mohammad PBUH, they were mad in the love, therefore they did somethings which can be termed as innovation or biddah, such mad acts for example were singing and dancing, But these early sufi's provided spirituality to a thirsty public and they provided comfort in the times of distress and torments.



The Sufism can provide us spiritual food right in modern time, if we do not allow charlatans to enter in Sufism.

The Sufism can provide todays muslims  relief from atrocities and harsh situation of today's muslims can be bearable if Sufis are made to sit in each and every mosque, we muslims are ready to admire them, we will seek knowledge and our daily five time prayers will be tasteful for us in the guidance of that Sufi.


The Sufism love everyone, it does not discriminates in sects, it does not blame other sects of deviations, actually all our
deviations are minor in differences, we must not allow our enemies to benefit from our differences.
The Sufism can unite all the sects of Islam, and in this way the God can forgive us, if we request him in a united voice.
In modern days of tribulations and torments for muslims, the muslims can only find comfort in the Sufism, there is hope that the God can forgive us and he can restore our past glory.

It is my wish that we must make someone a Sufi in our nearest mosque and make Bayat on his hand, we must
revive the Caliphate of Abu Bakr (R), in this way we can taste the sample of true Caliphate by imitating it now.
We must imitate and revive the tradition of caliphate of Abu Bakr (R), the Sufism can unite us, the Sufism can give us love and spirituality, by giving Bayat we can revive the Sunnah of our beloved prophet PBUH.
It is my desire that there should be someone to whom I will make my Murshid & I will become his Mureed.

In the time of trouble and hardship and poverty & distress and joblessness the Muslims needs someone who gives them support and gives them hope and gives them shelter and gives them strength to endeavor the hard times and the Muslims need someone who has sympathy with them and who supports the grieving muslims. Who will support muslims?.

The real and genuine and pious Muslim who will act as a Sufi can support muslim youths, he can give them hope and strength to bear the hard times, the Sufi can listen different problems of Muslims and he can resolve their problems in the Mosque, we do not have any need to go to the courts of justice to solve our own problems.
The Sufi is our Judge, he can solve our family problems, he can solve our business problems, he can solve our property problems, he can solve our social problems, then why we are wasting our time and money in the courts and advocates.
Our youths are in trouble, our young girls are without marriages and our old people are worried about the future, in this situation who will give hope and who will give shelter and support and who will give courage to bear the test of time ?, it is we, we must support ourselves.

There are Hadiths regarding the compulsiveness of making someone your Guide and making Bayat on his hand.

Whoever dies and did not make an oath of allegiance (to a Muslim leader) has died a death of jahiliyah (ignorance). [ Sahih Muslim, Kitab-ul-Immarah]”

Therefore, the Sufism in modern time can prove to be survival benefits for us in our modern hard time and in our difficult time in this modern world.
This is the psychological ingredient which is absent in our modern Islamic teachings and curriculum.
The Sufism provides unity in all our sects as it treats all sects are true and seek the pleasure of one God.
Because the Prophet Mohammad PBUH told that “ Narrated Anas bin Malik:

Allah’s Apostle said, “Whoever prays like us and faces our Qibla and eats our slaughtered animals is a Muslim and is under Allah’sand His Apostle’s protection. So do not betray Allah by betraying those who are in His protection.”

This means that all followers of all sects of islam are Muslims.

There is great importance of unity in Islam, the muslims cannot live without forming a unity and without forming a ameer.

please read this hadith...

"It is not permitted for three men to be in a desert place without putting one of their number in leadership." (Ahmad on the authority of 'Abd Allah bin 'Umar).

Therefore how come all muslims of the world think that they can live without forming unity and without following a common ameer ?


In the past various illiterate people and very often charlatans became Sufis and they abused the innocent muslims and their faiths.
There are Fake Sufis in each & every corner of Bombay & Lahore, every Donkey is Sufi , these are Charlatans and beware of such Sufis.

The modern muslims who are educated view sufism as a thing of ignorance and biddah i.e. invention after the death of the prophet Mohammad (PBUH), and there are muslims who are less educated and even uneducated who view these modern muslims as deviated persons from true islamic teaching, actually both these muslims are in misunderstanding, all sects in islam are right in intentions, sect creation is not desired in islam, but even if there are sects then if they believe in only one God & they believe in divine guidance through prophets & their books & they believe in divine judgement & in angels of the God and if all the sects of Islam believe in the termination of the prophet-hood after the prophet Mohammad (PBUH), then there is no harm if there are sects in islam.

The Sufism is not a sect of Islam, generally it is a great misunderstandings in the modern muslims that the sufism is a sect, and it is a innovative i.e. illegitimate sect, but in reality Sufism is not even a sect of Islam, the Sufism is mere an emotion of devotion to the God, it is the emotion of the pious muslims to devote to the God and his final messenger PBUH.


it is right that There are some people who happened to be sufis and they invented certain things for devotion, but their intention was not to invent things, but they invented in the state of ecstasy and annihilation in the love of the God, such acts are forgivable in the sight of the God as they are committed in the state of unconsciousness or unawareness in the state of emotional resonance.

When modern Muslims hear the word Sufism they see it with suspicion and they regard it either as a deviation from true Islam or they think it to be the innovation or Biddah in Islam.

I have presented here some scientific survival benefits of Sufism for humans.

Today the Muslims are in trouble, We are living among the most hostile enemies, muslims are denied Jobs, muslim youths are well educated but they do not have jobs, they are devoid of government jobs, they are denied in private industries and businesses, muslim youth are well educated, they are B.A,  B. Com, Engineers, B.Sc, B.Ed, M.Sc, Architects, Pharmacists, B.C.A. M.C.A, B.B.A. M.B.A, D.Eds, Diplomas, M. Com, B.Ds,  etc, etc, but their education cannot bring them bread, in such situations we should not beg to the government for employments but in such situation we must unite and gather money and we must start our own factories and businesses.
We muslims are a nation in ourselves, we are in millions and billions among the non muslims, we are humans and we have our needs, such as we need clothes, we need food items, we need fridge, we need washing machines, we need fan and air coolers, we need Television sets and computers, we need Air conditioning and we need furniture, we need education and we need books, we need motor cycles and we need cars, we need cosmetics, we need personal hygienic products, soaps and washing powders, we need building materials, bricks, cement, etc,  if we need all these items, then why we should not provide ourselves all these items ?, Now we should start our own factories and trading and business to provide ourselves these goods, in this manner we can offer jobs to our youths, Come let us collect money from muslims and start our own business !, I agree that in the beginning our factories will not produce good quality Fans and refrigerators and motor cycles, but at least we can provide jobs to our educated unemployed youths, then slowly our quality will also improve.
Instead of wasting money in marriages and in Religious gatherings and wasting money by purchasing all these mentioned items from non muslim traders, why we cannot gather money from muslims to start a Factory, we muslims are in millions and billions in each country, we can gather money and start Factories in each and every town and village, these factories will provide employments to our youths. We are nation in ourselves, we are equal to some countries in population, we are our own country. please do not wait and hope from others for help, help our self.

We are in millions and billions across every country, if we try to gather ONE Dollar 1$ per person and per month, then we can gather millions and billions of money per month, therefore we can open factories and businesses per month in each and every city, village, town, this only is possible if we have unity, and the Sufism can provide us the desired unity.

We can start Shopping malls, tradings, businesses, services, Factories and Hospitals and Laboratories, Educational institutions, security services, we can solve our own social religious problems in the mosques.

In the time of trouble and hardship and poverty & distress and joblessness the Muslims needs someone who gives them Jobs, gives them support, gives them hope, gives them shelter, and gives them strength to endeavor the hard times and the Muslims need someone who has sympathy with them and who supports the grieving Muslims. 
Who will support Muslims?  In our bad time?
Only we Muslims can support our self, no other person will give us comfort,.
How to support our self?
To support our self we need to know about our own strengths, & weakness.
What are our strengths?  In addition to our weaknesses?
Let me summarize it as follows,
We Muslims are in millions and millions in population, we are in each city and village and town,
Instead of spending our money in unnecessary eating Kentucky and Chinese fast foods and instead of wasting our money in marriage ceremonies and multi food feasts after marriages and instead of wasting our hard earned money in latest cars and bikes and mobile phones and clothes and dresses, and wasting money in ijtemas (religious gathering) we must consider gathering the money for the benefit of our society, the money spent on our society will come back to you in the form of happy society and strong Ummah and the reward from the Allah will be extra benefit for us.

For example, The upcoming Tablighi Ijtema  costs us 1.3 Million US Dollars.  In these 1300000 Dollars we might have started at least 4 Factories, Many shopping malls & Many trading businesses, which might have offered Jobs to hundreds of young Muslims, and hundreds of families might have become happy, but In this ijtema of Three days we are  wasting all this public money, and we are nowhere now.

If our businesses and factories are feared to be targeted by the enemy by legal challenges and false suits filed for sacking our money, then we must start our factories and businesses in anywhere in the world where our businesses are safe, but the profit of the money must reach the deserving muslim families in the form of muslim help.
For stability in our industries and businesses we should start our factories in collaboration with foreign multinationals.we can import modern machines and collaborating with foreign multinationals can provide us safety and stability in our businesses.

We must start such factories and industries and businesses where more men are required, i.e. more men will employed, we should not opt for more automation, as our aim is to provide more jobs to our unemployed youths.


We should keep in mind that already existing muslim businesses should not suffer by our starting of factories and businesses and industries.

We must start such factories and industries and businesses where more men are required, i.e. more men will employed, we should not opt for more automation, as our aim is to provide more jobs to our unemployed youths.

One more thing I want to discuss here that There are some Muslims whom the Allah has given resources and they are providing jobs to their muslim employees must thank the God that in such worst situations the God had made them capable of providing jobs to others, therefore I request to such wealthy Muslims that please treat well with your employees and please do not abuse your authority, please remember the God who has given you wealth and power he also can take your wealth back. 

There is a Hadith Narrated by Ali (R).

“Observe Salaah (the prayers), Observe Salaah And fear Allah with regards to your slaves and servants.“

I have observed that many muslim employers are not treating well with their servants and employees.

Here in this article I am not telling you that you should follow it, nor I am forcing anybody to accept it, here I only want to clarify that the Sufism has some benefits. The Sufism has survival benefits for the Muslims in particular and beneficial for the humankind in general.
In the last, I will try to prove that how it is not a Biddah or innovation, there is a big misconception in all sects of Muslims that it is a Biddah or an innovation in Islam, even Sufis consider themselves to be biddatis, but actually it is their misconception too, the most beneficial aspect of Islam is in such obscured condition only due to some people who were not Sufis but they posed themselves as Sufis and they defamed this institution of Islam, I will discuss these charlatans and clowns in details in the end.
First, I will show some most important survival benefits of Sufism, until recently I too has misconceptions about Sufism but The God guided me in correct time and I reached on good terms with the Sufism.

Now there are some Hadith regarding the Importance of Unity among muslims.

Hadith on Unity: Allah is pleased by Muslim unity and displeased by division

Abu Amina Elias • January 7, 2016

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, Allah the Exalted is pleased with you by three things and displeased by three things. He is pleased for you to worship him without associating anything with him, to hold fast to the rope of Allah altogether, and to not become divided. He is displeased for you to gossip among yourselves, to ask many unnecessary questions, and to waste your wealth.”

http://www.islamicperspectives.com/howtoorganize.htm

-----------------------------------

The way of Islam wants us to organize ourselves and take care of our religious, social and other affairs is clearly outlined in the following verses of the Holy Qur`an:

"O you who believe! Obey God and obey the Messenger and those from among you who are in charge of your affairs; and if you differ over any matter, refer it to God and the Messenger, if you do believe in God and the last day." (4:59)


"(Believers are those) who run their affairs by consultation among themselves." (42:38)


"And consult them (O Prophet) in matters (of public concern)." (3:159)


"And let there among you be a group of people who invite to all that is good, who enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong." (3:104)


If we read these verses casually, they do not seem to contain much guidance, but if we ponder over them with devotion due to the words of God and take into account related ahadith, we find that they contain a complete outline of the way Muslim affairs are to be organized and run. And if, furthermore, we put them into practice in our communities and societies, they will provide a solution for many of our existing problems and take us out of our present miserable state of affairs.

These verses give us five principles, which may be called the five pillars of the Islamic organizational structure.

First Pillar: Muslims should run their affairs through a decision-making body (ul al-amr). The above Qur`anic verses assume the existence of such a body; Hadith states it more explicitly, teaching that wherever there are three or more Muslims they must choose one of them as their amir (leader):

"It is not permitted for three men to be in a desert place without putting one of their number in leadership." (Ahmad on the authority of 'Abd Allah bin 'Umar)

"When three persons go on a journey, let them put one of their number in command." (Abu Da'ud on the authority of Abu Sa'id)

The idea of these ahadith is not that only when there are three Muslims and only when they are on a journey that they should have an amir but rather that even if there are three of them and even if they are on a journey they should appoint one of them as their amir. So choosing an amir is all the more necessary for communities of Muslims consisting of hundreds or thousands of individuals and leading a settled life in a city or country.

It is also interesting to note that while Hadith sometimes talks of amir, the Qur`an only talks of the plural ul al-amr, which should be interpreted to mean that while there should be a single person as the head of a group of Muslims, the decision-making power should be exercised rather by a body or bodies consisting of more than one person; in other words, power should not get concentrated in the hands of a single person (except in the case of very small groups).

The obligation to choose a decision-making body is often respected within religious Muslim groups like Ikhwan, Jama'at Islami, Tablighi Jama'at and smaller groups all of which have hierarchies of amirs. But these groups make no effort to unite with larger Muslim communities found around them, who also choose decision-making bodies. Yet this is precisely the intention behind the words of God and His Messenger. These words do not tell us that Muslims in a city should be split into various groups and then each of these groups should choose an amir of its own. Rather, they clearly teach us that Muslim communities in various cities, countries, etc. should as a whole also have decision-making bodies.

The reason that various jama'ats (organizations, parties) and organized religious groups among us do not try to unite with the Muslim community as a whole is that they know that their support among Muslims at large is rather small and as a result their influence in the community-wide decision-making bodies will be limited, which is something they hate. Each one of these jama'ats and organized groups wishes that it is its members who should be among the ul al-amr and not anyone else and with this desire for power they live with the vain hope that one day a sufficiently large number of Muslims will join them and then they will form the decision-making bodies in various communities.


As various jama'ats and organized groups thus live in their unrealizable dreams of power, fighting and discrediting each other, the affairs of the larger Muslim communities around them remain in a mess and subject to influence from destructive elements from within and hostile powers from without.


Muslim communities in North American cities, for example, are at present like ships without any recognized captains, moving aimlessly in the turbulent social sea around them, ready to sink any time, while those on board fight and argue with each other and each group among them hoping to be able to hijack the ship.


In Muslim countries there of necessity exists governing powers, but in view of the failure of Muslim elements to try to choose decision-making authority in accordance with Islam, this governing power becomes available for grab to repressive dictators and open to CIA and KGB interference.


Second Pillar: The first pillar of the Islamic organizational structure, then, is the principle that no community of Muslims, large or small, should be without ul al-amr or a decision-making body.


The second pillar is that this body must be chosen by the community. One of the Qur`anic passages quoted earlier says that the believers' affairs are run by consultation among them. Since the choice of the decision-makers is the first and important step in the running of the affairs of a community, this choice is also subject to the principle of consultation and must therefore be made by a process of election involving the whole community.


After their election the decision-makers still remain bound by the principle of consultation. They cannot decide whatever they desire or whatever suits them, but rather must reach their decisions after duly consulting ahl alra'y(1) (people having an opinion on the matter concerned). This is clear from 3:159, where the Prophet, may he be blessed evermore, is commanded by God Most High to "consult with them (i.e. the Muslims) in matters (of public concern)".


In view of the fact that Muslim decision-makers must make their decisions, at least in important matters, after due consultation with the community, the function of the decision-makers really reduces to collecting views found in the community, giving them a coherent form (if these views conflict with one another) and then execute the decisions so reached.


Third Pillar: If a decision-making body comes into being by election and functions by a process of continuous consultation with people of opinion, then (and only then) the decisions reached by such a body are binding on every member of the community provided those decisions do not conflict with the clear teachings of Islam. This is the meaning of the words of God:


"Obey God and obey His messenger and those among you who are in charge of your affairs" (4:59)


Fourth pillar: This consists of the principle that if differences arise among some sections of the community, including the decision-making body, they must be referred to God and His Messenger. Verse 4:59 continues:


"And if you differ over any matter, refer it to God and the Messenger, if you do believe in God and the last day."


Note that in this part of verse 4:59 ul al-amr and the decision-makers are not mentioned. This has two implications:


a) Differences can arise not only between ordinary members of the community but also between ul al-amr and other members of the community.


b) When differences do occur, whether among ordinary members of the community or between such members and ul al-amr, they are not referred to ul al-amr but to God and His Messenger. In other words, ul al-amr are a body of persons whose job is to decide matters on the basis of opinions found in the community (including the opinions they themselves hold) and then execute these decisions. They are not meant to act as judges to settle differences when such differences become serious. The role of judges belongs to two authorities that are higher than everybody in the community including the ul al-amr. These two authorities are God and His Messenger.


How can disputing parties take their differences to God and His Messenger? In the time of the Messenger, this was simple: the disputing could go to the Prophet and he could settle the matter either through a direct revelation from God or through the use of nur or light that he possessed. In our time, differences can sometimes be settled by referring to the Qur`an and Hadith. However, differences among Muslims often concern the Qur`an and Hadith themselves, which are interpreted differently by different parties. To deal with such situations there clearly arises the need for a body of persons, knowledgeable in Islam, to which questions of interpretation may be referred, when settling such questions is essential for the health and harmony of the community. This body must be as independent as possible and must not be under any kind of influence of the ul al-amr or any other section of the community.


If differences do not affect the health and harmony of the community, then the parties concerned may simply agree to disagree, co-existing like brothers and leaving it to God to decide, on the day of judgment, the truth of the matter in which they differed. This approach would be yet another way of "referring differences to God..."


It is the obligation of the disputing parties to refer their differences, when they cannot co-exist with those differences as a united community, to independent Islamic judges as mentioned above. However, if the parties fail to thus seek resolution of their differences or fail to accept the decision of the independent judges and as a result engage in a fight which threatens to disrupt the life of the community, then it becomes the obligation of the entire community to first try to make peace between the disputing parties on a just basis through arbitration and if this fails, to fight or pressure in some way the party which refuses to accept the just solution proposed by the community or by the independent judges acceptable to the community. The Holy Qur`an says:


"If two groups among the believers fall to fighting, make peace between them; but if one of the groups goes on acting wrongfully against the other, fight ye (all) against the one that acts wrongfully until it reverts to the command of God; and if it reverts then make peace between them with justice and be fair, for, God loves those who are fair. Believers are but brethren, so make peace among your brethren (whenever two parties among them are at odds), and remain conscious of God, so that you may receive mercy." (49:9-10)


In regards to the above verse it is important to note that keeping order and harmony in the Muslim community is ultimately the responsibility of the community, for, it is to the community of the believers that the above verse addresses and gives instructions about how to deal with conflicts that threaten its harmony. Under most circumstances, though not in North American cities, a Muslim community will have to delegate its function of maintaining order and harmony to a police force, but this police force must under all circumstances remain answerable to the community who is its source of authority. It can in no case assume an authority independent of the people. In other words, there is no police state in Islam.


Fifth Pillar: The last important principle around which Muslims are expected to organize their collective life is a process of continuous correction, reform and improvement through education, public criticism, etc. Just as a human body comes under continuous attacks from various injurious germs, viruses, etc. and must continuously fight them to stay alive and healthy, so also a body of people is threatened continuously by wrong ideas, attitudes and deeds originating from its members and must constantly counter these destructive and disintegrating tendencies for its collective health and life. The way to this is:


- enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong

- exhorting one another to truth
- invitation to all that is good
- education

The work of exhorting one another to truth, invitation to khayr (good), etc. is a collective obligation on the entire community. It is not limited to men of great learning or imams. Everyone should do it to his or her capacity. The only conditions are that one should know what one is talking about, that one should be sincere and that one should try to practice what one preaches.


In the last analysis, the work of correction, reform and improvement through exhortation to truth, invitation to khayr, etc. reduces to upholding in the community all the Qur`anic principles and commandments. No wrong can establish itself in a community where all the principles and commandments are upheld. A wrong can establish itself only when some part of the Qur`an is suppressed. In other words, every established zulm (injustice) in the society is directly linked to a zulm on a part of the Book of God. It is for this reason that suppression in any way of any part of the Qur`an is severely condemned by God:


"Verily, those who suppress or hide anything of the truth and of the guidance which We have sent down, after We have made it clear for mankind in the Book, they will be cursed by God and by all who (are entitled to) curse." (2:159)


The curse mentioned in the above verse falls both on those rulers or governments who in one way or the other hinder men from declaring any part of the message of the Qur`an as well as on those who let themselves be so hindered. It is fear of men that usually prevents people from upholding certain parts of the Qur`an and so Allah ordains that at least men who control mosques where the Qur`an is learned and taught should be chosen among those who "fear none but Allah" (9:18)


In a sense the last pillar of the Islamic organizational structure, namely, mutual exhortation to truth, mutual enjoining of right and forbidding of wrong and upholding of all the Qur`anic principles and commandments is the most important of all the five pillars outlined above. For if this principle is practiced, that is, if in a community there are sufficiently many knowledgeable persons who raise responsible voices when a wrong begins to establish or when a right thing does not get established, then not only all the four other principles will be put into practice but also the organizational structure thus established will function satisfactorily. On the other hand, if the last principle is not practiced by a sufficient number of persons in a community, then either the first four principles will not be applied at all or else the organizational structure resulting from their application will function unsatisfactorily and sooner or later collapse.

Hold fast to it and bite it with your molar teeth. Shun yourself from every innovated matter. Verily, those innovated matters are heresy, and every heresy is astray.” [3]

This hadeeth was narrated by al-Bukhaari in a number of places in his Saheeh, such as (7088) Kitaab al-Fitan, where he narrated that Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Soon there will come a time when the best wealth a Muslim will have will be sheep which he will take to the mountaintops and places where rain falls, fleeing for the sake of his religious commitment from tribulation.” And Muslim narrated a similar hadeeth in his Saheeh (1888), also from Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him), which says that a man came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and said, “Which of the people is best?” He said, “A man who strives in jihad for the sake of Allaah with his wealth and his self.” He asked, “Then who?” He said, “A believer in a mountain pass who worships Allaah and leaves the people alone.” 
The word sha’af [in the second hadeeth] means a mountaintop. The word shi’b [in the first hadeeth] means a gap or pass between two mountains. Al- Nawawi said in Sharh Saheeh Muslim (13/34): “This does not mean the mountain pass itself, rather what is referred to is being alone and isolating oneself. A mountain pass is mentioned as a metaphor because it is usually devoid of people.” 
The hadeeth indicates that it is preferable to isolate oneself from people and not mix with them in cases where a Muslim fears for his religious commitment because of widespread tribulation, where if he mixes with people he cannot be sure that his religious commitment will be safe and that he will not apostatize or deviate from the truth, or fall into shirk or abandon the basic principles and pillars of Islam, and so on. 
Al-Haafiz ibn Hajar said in al-Fath (13/42):  “This report indicates that isolation is preferable in the case of one who fears for his religious commitment.” 
Al-Sindi said in his footnotes on al-Nasaa’i (8/124): “This shows that it is permissible to isolate oneself, indeed it is preferable at times of tribulation.” 
In the second hadeeth quoted above the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) mentioned the believer who isolates himself second in virtue only to the mujaahid who fights for the sake of Allaah. Al-Haafiz said in al-Fath (6/6): “The believer who isolates himself is second in virtue only to the mujaahid because the one who mixes with people cannot guarantee that he will not commit sin, and these sins may be greater in number than the hasanaat (rewards for good deeds) that he gains as a result of mixing with people. But being isolated is regarded as preferable only in cases where there is tribulation.” 







































This is a long discussion therefore I request you to read it patiently, Allah will reward all of us, inshaAllah.

To be continued................inshaAllah




This self-employment philosophy is derived from the following incident during the time of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him): 

A man of the Ansar came to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and begged from him. He (the Prophet) asked: Have you nothing in your house? He replied: Yes, a piece of cloth, a part of which we wear and a part of which we spread (on the ground), and a wooden bowl from which we drink water. He said: Bring them to me. He then brought these articles to him, and he (the Prophet) took them in his hands and asked: Who will buy these? A man said: I shall offer to buy them for one dirham. He said twice or thrice: Who will offer more than one dirham? Another man said: I shall buy them for offered and bought them for two dirhams. He gave the two dirhams to him and took the two dirhams and, giving them to the owner Ansari, he and said: Buy food with one dirham for your family, and buy an axe with the second dirham, and bring it to me. The Ansar brought the axe to the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him), who fixed a handle on it with his own hands and said: Go, gather firewood and sell it, and do not let me see you for a fortnight. The man went away, and gathered firewood and sold it. When he had earned ten dirhams, he came to the prophet and told him that he had bought a garment with some of them and food with his earnings the others. (Abu Dawud, Hadith 1637)


This incident illustrates an important distinction between simply providing relief as opposed to making someone self-sufficient. Relief is generally a short term solution to a long term problem. Self employment through economic and social change is a long-term solution, which is why I focuses on projects that promote self-employment.
