Statement of the Mujadddid of the 14th Century

Sayyidina A’la Hadhrat, Azeemul Barkat, Ash Shah Imam Ahmed Raza Khan Fazil-e-Bareilwi (radi Allahu anha beautifully states: “It is Huzoor Pur Noor, Sayyidul Mubaarikeen (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) whose dust from his blessed Sandals is blessing to the heart and the soul and Surma for the eyes of Imaan. He made that water blessed that was used to wash the hands of the Muslims; and requested that water for drinking, even though, I swear by Allah, that the Barkat that is in the hand, tongue, heart and soul of the Muslims was also bestowed to them by him. All these blessings were through the Sadqa (virtue) of his blessed Sadals. This was all done for the education of the Ummah and as a warning for those who are lost in their dreams – that if do not understand it in this way, then listen to the action of your Leader (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). Awaken and become a attainer of the blessings of the Awliyah and Ulema. What kind of an ignorant and deprived person is he who cannot recognise the Tabarukat and belongings of the beloved of Allah and who does not gain blessings from them. “(Badrul Anwaar fi Adaabil Aathaar)

Another blessed statement of A’la Hadhrat (radi Allahu anha) regarding the respect of a picture of Naalain Shareef

“If this is respect and Barkat of a picture, then imagine the Barkat and excellence of the real Naalain-e-Pak, (slipper/s). Place your sight on the belongings of the times such as Cloak and the Turban and then that which is thousands of times more excellent than these Tabarukaats, in other words, the blessed finger nails, since all above mentioned were belongings, and the blessed finger nails, is the part of the actual blessed body and even more excellent and exalted and superior, is the blessed hair from the blessed beard of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). The Imaan of a Muslim is witness that the seven skies and the seven earths cannot reach the excellence of one blessed hair (of Rasulullah sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). It is evident from the sayings of the A’imma-e-Kiraam that there is no need for evidence of any certification. All that is required is that it be associated to Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).” (Badrul Anwaar fi Adaabil Asraar)
