The Golden Chain (22.08.2021)
.Today is the Urs of our Shaykh, Sayyidina Shah Baha’uddin. May his Maqam be higher. He is a great holy man who served humanity and Muslims. Millions of people reached guidance through him. And this way is going on until Qiyāmah. This way is the beautiful way of our Holy Prophet ﷺ that leads to Allah ﷻ. It is the way of good people.
Tariqah is what keeps Islam clean among so much Fitnah. And the best one is the Naqshbandi Tariqah. It starts from our Holy Prophet ﷺ then Sayyidina Abu Bakr raḍiya Llāhu ‘anhu, and with names changing, it eventually reached Sayyidina Shah Baha’uddin Naqshband. Then, it was called Naqshbandi after him. And until Qiyāmah, millions of people have been and will be following it insha’Allah. His Maqam is very high.
Today is the anniversary of his death. And the day of his death is like a wedding – Urs. It is not sad for them to meet Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla. Contrarily, it is the day of happiness. Of course, it is sad for others. But their duty is to deliver people, Muslims, Ahlu t-Tariqah cleanly to our Holy Prophet ﷺ. This is their goal. Their goal is the pleasure of Allah ﷻ. May Allah ﷻ increase his Maqam. This is the vow our Holy Prophet ﷺ gave him in the Cave of Thawr during the Hijrah of our Holy Prophet ﷺ with Sayyidina Abu Bakr. The Hijrah is something that had to be performed for humanity and Muslims. All the Naqshbandi Mashayikh had gathered spiritually in the Cave of Thawr, not the Cave of Hira’, took bayah and made Dua for this way to continue. Pervert Firqas with a broken belief were cleaned out through them. Otherwise, there were many shaytans who wanted to destroy Islam.
There are Mujaddids – revivers who were meant to be on this way. Mujaddid Alf Sani, reviver of the second millenium Sayyidina Ahmad al-Faruqi came from this way. He called it the golden chain. It is an unbreakable chain. It will go on until the appearance of Mahdi ‘alayhi s-salam and until Qiyāmah with the permission of Allah ﷻ. May Allah ﷻ give guidance to people. And may those who are meant to be on this way enter it insha’Allah. May it be blessed for all of us insha’Allah. Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
