  15. 15. RECAP PREVIOUS LESSON Actually, Muslims are already taught ‘Adab ’ in following the Prophet from the categorization of “Hukm taklifi ” and Fiqh : [1] Fardh ‘ain before Fardh kifaaya; [2] Wajib before mandub (sunnat ); [3] Removing harm (mafsadah, or mungkar) has priority over bringing new benefit (maslahat); [4] That which is near or closest, before the far and the distant; [5] Concern for our shortcomings rather than relishing or indulging in self-praise; [6] Aakhirah (eternal Hereafter ) has precedence over Dunya (temporal world). etc. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)

  18. 18. “VERILY, in the Messenger of Allah you have a good example for everyone who looks forward [with hope and awe] to Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah unceasingly.” (Qur’an: Ahzab: 33: 6) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  19. 19.  “Imitation (or copying, emulating someone) is the sincerest form of flattery (praise)!” is an English proverb.  It reveals an obvious truth which we should consider, whether we have acted truthfully and sincerely, when we regard our Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. as the most beloved and best of Allah’s creation (khayr-al-khal-qil-lah).  He, whose name is “the praised one”, indeed is praised by Allah, Who is the Creator of every creation: “And thou (Muhammad) standest on an exalted standard of character.” (Qur’an: Qalam: 68: 4) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  20. 20.  Note: Therefore ultimately it is in the Prophet Muhammad’s noble akhlaq that we must strive to imitate and instil in ourselves.  Yet, mere outward conformity alone can lead to hypocrisy ( nifaq) or ostentatious (riya ’) or even conceit (‘ujub). We seek refuge in Allah s.w.t. from being afflicted by these evil traits.  The inner cleansing (tazkiyya al-nafs ) and constancy (istiqomah) in striving (mujaahada), with seeking Allah’s Taufiq and Guidance, is crucial. Thus, apart from having correct belief ( Aqeedah), conforming with correct ‘Amaliyyah (outward deeds) we also require inculcation of noble disposition (akhlaq al-kareema ). All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  21. 21.  As in every Islamic religious sciences (‘ ulum al-Deen) viz. QUR’AN, QIRA’AT, AHADITH, FIQH, AQEEDAH, SEERAH, etc. which can be traced and linked to unbroken chains of transmitters ( ISNAD) back to the Prophet s.a.a.w. so too is the imperative in matters of spiritual practices – the traditional methodology.  And thus at the stage of development termed variously as TAZKIYYATUN NUFUS, or TASAWWUF or AKHLAQ, which is the practice of Islam at the level of IHSAN – one preferably needs to be “upon the spiritual way or practices”, linked through examples of practices of righteous scholars, which has an unbroken chain of transmission back to the Prophet s.a.w. termed as “ TARIQAH “. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  22. 22. ADVICE FROM MY PARENT, TEACHERS AND PREDECESSORS *  There is a special type of TARIQAH, only for those elites referred to as the “Al-Muqorrabun”, but these people are extremely rare today as mentioned: “And those Foremost (in Faith) will be Foremost (in the Hereafter). These will be those Nearest to Allah (al-Muqorrabun):In Gardens of Bliss: A number of people from those of old, and a few from those of later times.” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013) (Qur’an: al-Waqi-’ah: 56: 10-14)
  23. 23. ADVICE FROM MY PARENT, TEACHERS AND PREDECESSORS *  Even at the time of Imam al-Habib ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Alwi al-Haddad (rhm.a), he realizes that every Muslim should be upon a general type of TARIQAH, which is inclusive and for the general Muslims – unlike the specialised TURUQ (plural of Tariqah) that requires ‘Bai-’at ’ (personalised investiture), etc. before being allowed to practice its Awrad and Dzikr. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  24. 24. ADVICE FROM MY PARENT, TEACHERS AND PREDECESSORS *  Regarded as a MUJADDID of the Ba-’Alawi of his time, Imam alHabib ‘Abdullah bin ‘Alwi al-Haddad incorporated within the teachings and practices of Islam which BANI ’ALAWY scholars spread (especially in the Nusantara) , all the three components of AQEEDA-FIQH-TASAWWUF.  Regarding AQEEDAH – in following the Madzhab of Imam Abul Hassan al-’Ash-’ary; and FIQH of Madzhab Imam Ash-Shafi-’ie, incorporating some practices unique to Ahlul-Bayt.  While in TASAWWUF, actually it already provides a TARIQAH, but of the general type, which has been consistently but ‘unconsciously’ and inconspicuously practiced for generations since then. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  25. 25. ADVICE FROM MY PARENT, TEACHERS AND PREDECESSORS *  To differentiate this TARIQAH from the specialises TURUQ, he termed it as the way or the “TARIQAH - AHLUL-YAMEEN”.  A ‘TARIQAH’ is a methodology involving spiritual practices of Dzikr, Wirid, Du’a, Suluk, etc. - practiced with supervision or guidance of an accomplished teacher who serves as Mursheed (Guide).  For generations our ‘Ulama in Nusantara have been fulfilling this role – without need to use the term TARIQAH, even. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  26. 26. ADVICE FROM MY PARENT, TEACHERS AND PREDECESSORS *  As many of these practices in this “TARIQAH - AHLUL-YAMEEN”, or “TARIQAH BA-’ALAWY”, are already supported with basis from authenticated sources from the Prophet s.a.w. , and from established practices of well-known ‘Ulama for generations by generations of practitioners, it can be followed by all Muslims, even without the personalised “Bai-’at”, unlike in other TURUQ.  Thus we find in this region, that the Muslims here already practices almost similar if not identical spiritual exercises viz. Awrad, Dzikr’, Du’a, Ratib, etc. from how Islam was taught for several generations - without any fanfare avoiding ostentation. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  27. 27. ADVICE FROM MY PARENT, TEACHERS AND PREDECESSORS *  Thus, with humility, we are taught to strive upon this so as to be included amongst those referred to as the “Ashaabul-yameen” . “For the companions of the Right Hand. A (goodly) number from those of old ― And a (goodly) number from those of later times.” (Qur’an: al-Waqi-’ah: 56: 38-40) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  28. 28. ADVICE FROM MY PARENT, TEACHERS AND PREDECESSORS * In fact, he, Qutb-al-Irshaad wa Da’wah Habib ‘Abdullah bi ‘Alawi alHaddad gave us the Path of Ba-’Alawiy (Tariqah Ahlil Yamin) – the path of our Saadat (noble Elders) whose sign is : “to remove all signs ” of it being a Tariqah * * with spiritual link (sanad) from its founder: al-Imam al-Faqih al-Muqaddam Muhammad bin ‘Ali Ba-’Alawi - of Hadramawt, Yemen (653 H /1232 CE), and then connected continuously with an unbroken chain of teachers/masters / elders all from amongst the descendants of our Prophet Muhammad s.a.a.w.

Apart from receiving his ’ijazah-khirqa suffiya’ from Abu Madyan in Morocco (a student of Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani), he is also linked genealogically and spiritually to Imams of Ahlil-Bayt (descendants) of the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w..

  39. 39. ADVICE FROM MY PARENT, TEACHERS AND PREDECESSORS * METHODOLOGY : STRIVE TO LIVE UP TO FIVE ESSENTIAL PRINCIPLES (USHUL) IN LIFE. (1) ‘ilm (knowledge); (2) ‘amal (practice); (3) wara` (religious scrupulousness, piousness); (4) Khauf (reverential fear of Allah); and (5) Ikhlas (sincerity). * al-Manhaj as-Sawi syarhu Ushul Thoriiqah as-Saadah Aali Baa 'Alawi" All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  40. 40. ADVICE FROM MY PARENT, TEACHERS AND PREDECESSORS * Al-Habib ‘Abdullah bin ‘Alawi al-Haddad’ ’s advice regarding the ways of our pious predecessors (Salafus-soleh) and ‘ulama-al-’amilin, is one of : 1. humility (tawadhu’ ) , 2. inconspicuous (khumul ) and 3. value the unity of the ummah (ukhuwwah) by not projecting exclusivity but 4. exuding tolerance with wisdom (tasaamuh wa hikmah), 5. preferring Utlub-al-’ilm, Da’wah, Qudwah hasanah, jihaad fee-sabilil-laah, and 6. all based on (Hub-bun-Nabiy ) love for the Prophet, his household (Ahlil-Baytin Nabiy) and those who love them (Muhib-been). All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  41. 41. ADVICE FROM MY PARENT, TEACHERS AND PREDECESSORS * In fact, he, Qutb-al-Irshaad wa Da’wah Habib ‘Abdullah bi ‘Alawi alHaddad gave us the Path of Ba-’Alawiy (Tariqah Ahlil Yamin) – the path of our Saadat (noble Elders) whose sign is :  We do not claim exclusivity but rather we hope that we be included by Allah SWT into this category mentioned by Him in Surah al-Waqi-’ah.  This category in fact, is generic which is inclusive and is a preferred category than that which were actually coined by people viz. SunniShiite, Salaf/ Khalaf, Traditional/Modern, Sufi/non-Sufi, etc. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  42. 42. ADVICE FROM MY PARENT, TEACHERS AND PREDECESSORS * In fact, he, Qutb-al-Irshaad wa Da’wah Habib ‘Abdullah bi ‘Alawi alHaddad gave us the Path of Ba-’Alawiy (Tariqah Ahlil Yamin) – the path of our Saadat (noble Elders) whose sign is :  Without doubt there were many from this TARIQAH BA’ALWIY who gained elevation into the ranks of “al-Muqorrabun”, yet this were gifts or bestowals from Allah rather than mere claim to being one.  Indeed, they were people who live up to the injunction (motto) : “Removing all the signs of Tariqah” by being immersed only in learning, sincerely practicing and spreading the message of Islam with their AKHLAQ and IHSAN.
