Hadith-e-Nabawi sallallahu alayhi wasallam
- Hazrat Eabad (Razi Allah Anhu) has narrated that once Prophet Mohammed (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said that" In MY (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) nation there are forty Abdals (devotees) because of whom the system of the world exists. Cause of them rainfalls and due to them you are helped.
- Hazrat Saad Bin Abe Waqas (Razi Allah Anhu) Prophet Mohammed (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has defined that Allah helps the nation as a sum or individually only because of His friends which are Aulia Akram (Saints).
- Allah Most High says: "He who is hostile to a friend of Mine I declare war against.
My slave approaches Me with nothing more beloved to Me than what I have made
obligatory upon him, and My slave keeps drawing nearer to Me with voluntary works
until I love him. And when I love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, his
sight with which he sees, his hand with which he seizes, and his foot with which he
walks. If he asks me, I will surely give to him, and if he seeks refuge in Me, I
will surely protect him"
(Sahih Bukhari - Fath al-Bari, 11.340 41, hadith 6502) [src: suhba.org]
Abu Huraira Radi allaho anho reported Allah's Messenger (may peace he upon him) as
saying: Many a person with disheveled hair and covered with dust is turned away from the
doors (whereas he is held in such a high esteem by Allah) that if he were to adjure in
the name of Allah (about anything) Allah would fulfil that.
