THE WORLD OF SIMILITUDE
 (THE SPIRITUAL REALM)
 

It is important that all 1.5 billion Muslims of the world should have authentic information about human soul and its realm (Aalam-e-Mithal) which consists 90% of the religion.  If you remain aloof from this important knowledge, you can never find the straight path of Islam. period.
 
We are providing below a brief account of  Alam-e-Mithal and its Administration  for the benefit of our readers.

 

   

The Administration of various worlds in this cosmos, as created  and run by Allah Ta'ala,  is very complex.  People have very little knowledge about it. Since this knowledge is  exclusive and important, it is given by Allah Ta'ala to a select few Awliya Allah.  If you want to know about it, learn the facts of Islam under a real Sufi Shaikh.  Do not waste your life in the company of  illiterate, blind, misguided so-called Islamic scholars.

It is in Quran - فَوَجَدَا عَبْدًا مِّنْ عِبَادِنَا آتَيْنَاهُ رَحْمَةً مِّنْ عِندِنَا وَعَلَّمْنَاهُ مِن لَّدُنَّا عِلْمًا ( Meaning - Then they found one of Our Servants on whom We had conferred a special favor  from Our Presence, and whom We had taught special hidden knowledge from Us) (Al-Kahf - 65). 

What is  Ilm-e-Ladunna  (Special Hidden knowledge) referred to in the above Quranic verse.   This is the knowledge of the Spiritual Realm (Aalam-e-Mithaal) which is given to Sufia-e-Karam / Awliya Allah as a special favor from Allah (swt).

Our Physical world is known as Aalm-e-Shahadah (the world of Manifestation - our Physical world).  We all know how our world is being governed.   The World is divided into continents, countries and regions.  We have about 195 big and small countries in the world which are Governed by Kings, Presidents, Prime Ministers, State  Governors, etc.  

Similarly, Aalm-e-Mithal (the world of similitude  or  the domain of souls / spirits )  also has a system of Governance.   Since that world is not seen by physical eyes, people know very little about it.    

There are two types of Awliya Allah in the world.  (1) those who are connected with the Governance of Aalm-e-Mithal, and (2) those who are not involved in the Governance of Aalm-e-Mithal.

Awliya Allah who are not involved in the Governance of Aalm-e-Mithal are broadly categorized as follows.

Majzoob - ( Absorbed in Aalm-e-Mithal )

Muhib -  ( Affectionate of Allah - SWT )

Mahboob - ( Beloved of Allah -SWT )

Fard - Supreme individual - ( the highest ranking Awliya Allah) - Among them, some are known as 'Habeeb'.

 

Awliya Allah who are connected with Governance of Aalm-e-Mithal, consists of  the following.

Qutub  (Governor) - There is a Qutub for every city and country as per his  rank and  seniority.
Abdaal (Regional  In-Charge) - Aalm-e-Mithal is divided into 40 Regions and an  Abdaal (Substitute)  is In-charge of that Region.
Autaad ( Zonal  In-charge ) - There are 7 major zones of Aalm-e-Mithal and an Autaad is made  In-charge of that zone.
Imam (Supreme Deputy) - Aalam-e-Mithal is primarily divided into two  Main Divisions and each Division  is looked after by an Imam.
Ghawth - He is the Head of administration of Aalm-e-Mithal
Governance of Aalam-e-Mithal has been explained to us by Prophet Mohammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wa Sallam).

It is in Hadith -   Tabarani said in his Mu'jam al-Awsat - that  Anas (Radiallahu Ta'ala Anhu) said that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wa Sallam) said: "The Earth will never lack forty men similar to the Friend of the Merciful (Prophet Ibrahim - Alaihis Ssalaam) and through them people receive rain and are given help. None of them dies except Allah Ta'ala substitutes (Abdaal) another in his place."

Commenting on the above Hadith, Qatada said: "We do not doubt that Al-Hasan al-Basri is one of ( the 40 )  abdaals.

Ibn Hibban also narrates this Hadith  in al-Tarikh through Abu Hurayra (Radiallahu Ta'ala Anhu) as: "The earth will never lack forty men similar to Ibrahim (Alaihis Salam) the Friend of the Merciful, and through whom you are helped, receive your sustenance, and receive rain."

Imam Ahmad narrated this Hadith in his Musnad (5:322) through Ibn Ata: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wa Sallam) said: "The Abdaal (Substitutes) in this Community are thirty like Ibrahim (Alaihis Salaam) the Friend of the Merciful. Every time one of them dies, Allah Ta'ala substitutes another one in his place."

It is in Hadith -  Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal narrates another Hadith in his Musnad (1:112) . 

The people of Syria were mentioned in front of Hazrat Ali ibn Abi Talib (Radiallahu Ta'ala Anhu) when he was in Iraq, and they said: "Curse them, O' Commander of the Believers (Amir al Momineen)."  He replied: "No, I heard the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wa Sallam) say: The "al-abdaal" ( the spiritual rank of Awliya Allah - translated in English as 'Substitutes' ) are in Syria and they are forty men, every time one of them dies, Allah Ta'ala substitutes another in his place. By means of them Allah Ta'ala brings down the rain, gives (Muslims) victory over their enemies, and averts punishment from the people of Syria."

Ibn Taymiyyah, the founder of Salafism,  accepts al-Ghawth al-A'zam Shaikh 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani as his Shaikh.  (refer Ibn Taymiyyah's  book  "Majmu`at  al-fatawa  al-kubra - He calls  him as  "Our Shaikh- Shaykhuna" and "My Master Sayyidi"Ibn Taymiyyah also accepts al-Ghawth al-A'zam (Radiallahu Ta'ala Anhu) as greatest Ghawth among Sufi Shaikhs.
 
Al-Dhahabi, who is considered a great scholar by Salafis, wrote in his book "Siyar a`lam al-nubala" about al-Ghawth al-A'zam (Radiallahu Ta'ala Anhu ). 

QUOTE - "al-Shaykh `Abd al-Qadir (al-Jilani): The Shaykh, the Imam, the Scholar, the Zahid, the Knower, the Exemplar, Shaykh al-Islam, the Distinguished one among the Awliya... the Hanbali, the Shaykh of Baghdad... "I say  there is no one among the great Shaykhs who has more Spiritual States and Miracles (karamat) than Shaykh `Abd al-Qadir" UNQUOTE"

The above Ahadith confirm two important facts of the Administration of Aalm-e-Mithal,  as follows.

(1) Spiritually, our physical world also falls under the jurisdiction of Aalm-e-Mithal  and its  administration.
(2) Awliya Allah responsible for the Administration of Aalm-e-Mithal are all  living in our physical world.

It is very difficult to understand Aalam-e-Mithal by verbal explanations. You need see and experience it yourself.   Therefore, it is important that you sit in the company of a real Sufi Shaikh who has first hand  knowledge about Aalam-e-Mithal.  He will first cleanse your Nafs (Tazkia) from materialistic attractions,  activate your Islamic vision with which you can see  the signs of Allah Ta'ala in the Cosmos and then explain Islam as enshrined in Quran and Sunnah.
