Valayat - unbound love for our Spiritual Guide, our Moula based on true knowledge, is the bedrock of our Faith - Deen. Based on my reading of the Book - ' The Prophet' by Khalil Gibran where in the Chapter on Love he answers Almitra, what Love truly means, I have reflected in the context of my Faith and offer as a tribute.
The journey continues……

BELOVED A’LI QDR MOULA MUFADDAL SAIFUDDIN (TUS)
OUR VALAYAT – OUR FEELINGS – OUR THOUGHTS
ARE ONE AND THE SAME AND WITH EACH PASSING DAY MORE INTENSE -
MORE DEEP - MORE REFRESHING - MORE UPLIFTING – EVER MORE
In the Book Almitra asks him to speak about LOVE.
LOVE (true valayat in our Deen) in this Presentation
is personalized as MOULA. In so doing I am sharing
my thoughts and tassvurat in the context of
Valayat of our Aqa Moula (TUS)
Almitra asks about LOVE and the protagonist
answers. Here I have equated ‘love’ with MOULA
Just relax , read and reflect, and share your
Then I on behalf of the multitude said - Speak to us
of our Moula
And he raised his head and looked upon the people.
And there felt a stillness upon them. And with a
great voice he said:
1. WHEN MOULA BECKONS TO YOU, FOLLOW HIM , THOUGH HIS
WAYS ARE HARD AND STEEP
1. When LOVE beckons you, follow him, though his ways are hard and steep.
2. And when his wings enfold you, yield to him
3. Though the swords hidden amongst his pinions may wound you.
4. And when he speaks to you, believe in him
5. Though his voice may shatter your dreams, as the north wind lay waste the garden
6. For even as LOVE crowns you, shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth, he is for your
7. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tender branches, that quiver in the sun. So shall he
descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth
8. Like sheaves of corn, he gathers you unto himself.
9. He sifts you to force you from your husks. He grinds you to whiteness. He kneads you until you are
10. All these things shall LOVE do unto you, that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that
knowledge, become the fragment of life's heart
11. But if in your fear you would seek only LOVE’S peace and LOVE’S pleasures. Then it is better that you
cover your nakedness and pass out of LOVE’S threshing floor
12.. In the season less world where you will laugh, but not all your laughter, and weep but not all your
1. When MOULA beckons you, follow him, though his ways are hard and
To many apparently it may seem to be a difficult proposition to follow
on 'sirate mustaqim' to adhere to it, to hold steadfast in the face of
worldly charms and temptations.
But for those whose hearts are instilled and glowing with the love of
Ahle Bait (S.A.) and their Dai, those who are riding this world of
talatum , sitting calmly in 'safina -tun - nazat' for them this sirat - this
way , this lifestyle, becomes a broad avenue, the journey becomes a
Namaz, roza, zakat, to keep ones self away from munkar aamal, to
overcome ego, the primordial sin, to be humble and patient in the face
of adversities - ways are hard and steep.
They are hard and steep to those who fail to comprehend. For one who
understands that it is his MOULA who beckons, it becomes a source of
spiritual joy and bliss.
2. And when his wings enfold you, yield to him.
Come rushing towards him on his nida, do not
tarry to weigh the options, just say:
labbaik ya DaiAllah - here I am O MOULA.
Rush towards him like a child rushing into the
arms of his father. MOULA’s wings are so
encompassing, so nurturing, that once engulfed in
them, you will feel like in HEAVEN for the rest of
Yield to him in Hamd and Shukr. He is here to
gather you, protect you and take you along with
3. Though the swords hidden amongst his pinions may wound you.
Yes indeed. Once you commit your self to be his true follower, he will scrape
off the rust that is corroding your mind and soul.
He knows you are an ‘angel in potentia’ and it is he and he alone, who can
make you an ‘angel in actu’.
He knows your inherent beauty and at the same time is pained by the
overlapping dross in your character.
He commands you to adhere to deeni seyar, to forsake worldly pleasures, that
to you seem like honey but in truth is poison.
It is not to hurt you but to uplift you.
He removes the festering wounds, which you think are adornments.
4. And when he speaks to you, believe in him.
You should have an unflinching conviction that what he says
and does is mukammil haq and you should have kamil
yakeen of his exalted position.
‘jeh kahe ya kare, haq chhe sarasar
samju te’ samjo – na samju na samjo ‘
Nothing can be more simpler than this.
Look around you, and you will surely find a great number of
mumineen, many you may know personally, who on account
of their unflinching faith in Moula, made great sacrifices in
their life styles, came out of their comfort zones, struggled
stoically for a limited period, at all time having faith in their
MOULA and within a short time, achieved a full filled and
enriched blessed life for themselves and their families.
4.Though his voice may shatter your dreams, as the
north wind lay waste the garden
Yes it may be that his nasihat and farmans may shatter
your self nurtured dreams to which you have clung in
false hope. Moula says that 'interest' is cancer, you plead
helplessness and exclaim how it is possible to progress
without institutelized financing.
Moula says do shukr and kana’at (contentment) but
you are all for upstaging your standard of living on
borrowed funds - truly ' though his voice may shatter
5. For even as Moula crowns you, shall he crucify you.
Even as he is for your growth, he is for your pruning.
Is there a single personality - a wali in this big wide world, who
proclaims to his followers ' do not have any doubts my tabe-
eens. I will vouchsafe for you. I will take you with me to
Jannate - Nayeem. I will be there to welcome you on your
deathbed - for even as he crowns you.
But with this crowning there is one khidmat that Imamuz-
zaman (S.A.) has entrusted to his Dai. Like a dedicated
gardener, he for ever prunes the weeds, the unwanted growth
that impairs our aspiring and efforts to reach high. Our Moula
is entrusted with the task of metamorphosing us into angels,
and he is there everyday to prune the worldly desires that may
arrest our flowering.
6. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest
branches, that quiver in the sun. So shall he descend to your roots and
shake them in their clinging to the earth.
Ascends to your height - by nourishing your 'nafs nateka' with Fatemi Ulum and
Hikmat, so that you may ascend greater heights of marefat.
Like an alchemist he transforms the baser elements into roohani, thus making it
At the same time, he frees you from worldly clinging, he shakes your roots, and
frees you from the embedded materialism, the shackles of 'nafs ammara' are
broken into bits by his untiring efforts.
7. Like sheaves of corn, he gathers you unto himself.
This is precisely his sole mission. It is for this purpose that this roohani
farishta has come among us. Our Moula has repeatedly emphasized that
'Mumeneen ! I am not doing any ehsan, this is my mission, to gather you
and take all of you with me to mahle - noorani.
8. He sifts you to force you from your husks. He grinds you to whiteness. He
kneads you until you are pliant.
In the thresher of shariat Moula removes the husks of materialism and imparts
the whiteness of takva siyar. He cleans you of the dirt of ego and haughtiness.
With utmost care and love he imparts the Fatemi Ilm, which like water in flour
makes you humble and obedient.
9. All these things shall Moula do unto you, that you may know the
secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge, become the fragment
of life's heart.
By the taeed and nazarate rahima of Imamuz-zaman (SA) our Moula
spares no efforts, so that we may return to our manzil-e-maksood. He
makes you aware of the fact that, this is not your place, your dwelling is
the roohani alam, from which you had fallen and separated, and it is there
that we will be united and live in perpetual bliss ever after.
10. But if in your fear you would seek only Moula's peace
and Moula's pleasures. Then it is better that you cover
your nakedness and pass out of Moula's threshing floor.
If your sole aim is to attain roohaniyat and hurriyat, than
you have to pass thru the threshing floor, you have to
remain sure footed on the sirat, merely proclaiming full
throated time and again 'lakho jan si fida thai javu' will not
suffice, the sentiment should be reflected in day to day
If however, your intentions are superficial, and you ikrar is
only to remain in the community for social needs, then it is
better for you not to tread on the threshing floor, and you
know what will result…………
11. In the season less world where you will laugh, but not all
your laughter, and weep but not all your tears.
Your life, laughter and tears will be superficial, it will lack the
depth and moving emotions, you will fail to experience the
totality of life, its reality and its essence
