Aulia's are the chosen friends of Allah. They are the one who have drunk from the fountain of eternal life during their life time on earth. They are those devotee and sincere bondsman on the earth who remember Allah ceaselessly and spend their life seeing inner purification through endeavor, toil, abstinence and prayer. They are the one who cease to depend on the "creation" and give them selves unto the creator, seeking sustenance from sources unimaginable, attain nearness to the divine light through constant worship and service to humanity. Their journey is endless. They are shore less sea with out any bottom and craving for Allah with out any limits.
Each part of their body is completely rid of non-divine influence. Their heart
become like a clean mirror reflecting back the reality of things. Their judgment does not
err. Being giving the divine light, they see the things in their true perspective. They see
every thing including Angles, Souls, Divine Thorns, the "Lohe-e-Mahfooze", the
guarded tablet in the seventh Heaven containing records of all events distinct to take place
from the beginning to the end of the universe. They see the past, the present and the future
In the Holy Quran Sura "Yunus" Ayat 62 the verse says:-
Behold! Verily on friends of Allah, there is no fear, nor they shall grieve.
Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has said in Hadith Qudsi quoted below:-
Allah has said " The most value worshiper of my bondsman, seeking my nearness, is the one I have opposed on him; and my servant continues to draws me near Me through the work of supererogation, until I love him. And when I love him, I am his ears so that he hears Me, and his eyes so that he sees Me, and his feet so he walks by Me, I am his hand so that he do work by Me. When he raises his hand in the prayers,I grant his request, when he seeks refuge unto Me, I protect him".
The most Merciful Allah has bestowed powers in them by which whatever Aulia Allah thinks and says become " KUNFA YA KUN" ( be and it become). Hundred of people have been declared as dead have been brought to life by these Aulia Akram back to life again. Dead animal and birds has been also restored to life again although their bodies have been deteriorated since long. Thousand have been cured by them with out medicines including those living far away from them. Prophet like Hazrat Easa and Hazrat Moosa would envy their super-natural phenomena. They all are humble followers of Prophet Mohammed (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) so low before the Prophet how great would be they are. One wonder why people hesitate very much to pay due respect to these great personality, spiritually perfect and enlightened ones------the Saints, who have been laid to rest after their last breath on earth. Such people had a strong feeling that to visit the shrine of a Saint tantamount of a sin of "Shirk".
According to their belief, these Prophet & Saints who have been laid to the rest has gone forever and nothing can be achieved from them. Even their bodies have been eaten up leaving no trace behind the grave. Further they have in their minds as to why should they seek any assistance or fulfillment of their desires from them or from any one else even they have enough of faith on Allah who the giver of Raizaq (food), cure (shifa), IIlm ( knowledge). No one can deny their on Allah of getting all the things from Him, but do they all the things from Allah. If not, then why not? Few example and conversation will convince them for change in their approach. To visit the Aulia's (saints) to go to their Mazar (Durga, Tomb, Shrines), or to kiss their hand, feet's, or their "Chaddar" covering place on their Mazar or even to their request them for grant of wishes (Murad) or to seek their help to solve the problems does amount to Shirk or Bidat. Remember that Saints are alive and alert and have innumerable powers bestowed to them to them by the Grace of Allah even though laid to rest. Similarly, It have been proved I our other articles " The prove of Aulia (Saints)". A little bit of more explanation will make people overcome the gross misunderstanding in their minds who are allergic in matter of Shirk and Bidat.
Some erroneous type of concept of many people has been developed towards the acknowledgment of Aulia (Saints) in the religion of Islam. Some of them do not know about the reality of this magnificence Aulia Akram (Holy Saints) and some of them say that, These Sufis and Saints are baseless since there is not any type of zikar in Quran and Hadith. For both the type of communities, Allah ALL MIGhtY and His Prophet Mohammed (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has delineate by giving orders in the Holy Quran and Sunnah.
In the Holy Quran LA ILLAHA ILLAL LA HO WAHDAHO LASHARIQA LAHO Allah (GOD) revealed:
Behold! Verily on the friends Of Allah (GOD) there is on fear, nor shall they grieve; those who believe and (Constantly) guard against evil. For them is Glad Tiding, in the life of the Present, And in the Hereafter: No change can there be in the Words of Allah (GOD). This is indeed. The supreme Felicity. [10:62]
In another words Allah TA'ALA have revealed in the Holy Quran:-
None one can be its guardian except Al-Muttagun (The pious, Saints) But most of them know not [8:34]
Allah TA'ALA declares that:
"Verily, he who has purified the Nafs has attained victory, and he who has despoiled it has lost.
Allah TA'ALA also states that:
"That day of Qiyamat (the day of doom) neither wealth nor sons will benefit anyone, but that person who comes to Allah with a reformed hearts".
Trough these Surrahs reference of Holy Quran it is undoubtedly defined that Aulia Allah (Saints) are not erroneous but also ALL MIGHtY Allah keeps them His comrade. Also Prophet Mohammed (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has briefly clarified this issue of Aulia Akram (Saints) in Hadith.
Hazrat Saad Bin Abe Waqas (r.a.) has narrated that, Once Prophet Mohammed (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said that "Allah (GOD) alleviates the nations but through His devotees friends".
In this Hadith which is narrated by Hazrat Saad Bin Abe Waqas (r.a.), 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).
Hazrat Eabad (r.a.) 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 Annas (r.a.) narrates that once Prophet Mohammed (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said
that "This world will not remain vacant from forty Abdals (devotees). Those who will be
from the grandsons and nation of Hazrat Abraham (a.s.) and due to them you will be
All the authentic principals of Aulia Akram (Saints) are to be found in the Holy Quran and Hadith. This clearly untrue the saying, that Aulia Allah (Saints) are baseless or flawed and since there is not any Zikar of these Sufis and Saints in Holy Quran and Hadith is absolutely erroneous and against the teaching of Quran & Hadith. Even though, Allah GE and His propitiate Prophet Mohammed (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) have explicitly defined about these enormous celebrities. As we can see that these Aulia Akram are the major part of Islam and also they are one the most lightened path for the true believers and followers.
The spiritual statue of this Saints Undoubtedly is below the prophets, yet they are recognized as true successor of them. Their spiritual heights and achievements are enormous, glittering and unforgotten as they have attracted the suffering masses to their fold through their supernatural acts and mystic deeds. The suffering humanity not in their life time but even after passing of hundred of years after their breathing the last continues to be blessed even to this day and look up to them relievers of their worldly needs spiritual problems such as incurable, misfortunes, untold, miseries and natural calamities.

When Allah Almighty (God) created the world, He send the messengers and saints from time to time reform the humanity so as to keep it from evil practices and make it adopt the path of righteousness. These messengers (Prophets) sent by the Allah (God), as the legend goes, number 1,24,000. The four revealed books namely Holy Zaboor, Holy Torah, Holy Bible and Holy Quran speak on the subject with vivid clarity. Of this large number of Prophets, the above-mentioned four books were revealed on the four noted Prophets namely; Holy David, Moses, Jesus Christ and Hazrat Mohammed (s.a.w.s.), respectively. Since according to the precepts of the Holy Prophet Mohammed Mustafa (s.a.w.s.) He is the final prophet, the chapter of prophethood stood closed some 1400 years ago following His birth and shall remain closed till the Doom's Day. According to a true Muslim's belief, acceptance by heart of the three prophets of Allah (God) namely; Holy Holy David, Moses and Jesus Christ from part his religious belief, among others, and his faith is never complete, if he does not sincerely believe in them and in the revealed holy books such a person cannot as such be treated and recognized as a true Muslim.
Next come the Mystics and Saints, a reference to whom is also made in the Holy Quran. The spiritual status of these saints, undoubtedly is below the prophets, yet they are recognized as true successors to them. The spiritual heights and mystical achievements of these saints are great, glittering and many, and they have attracted the suffering masses to their fold through their supernatural acts (miracles) Sufi (mystic) deeds. The suffering humanity not only in their life time, but even after passage of hundreds of years after taking veil from this materialistic world, continues to be blessed even to this day and looks up to them as relievers of their worldly needs spiritual problems such as incurable diseases, misfortunes, untold miseries and natural calamities. Hazrat Syed Baba Tajuddin Aulia (the Crown of Saints) as the title was bestowed upon him by Hazrat Ali Murtaza Muskil-Kusha (Karam Allah Talah Anha), the fourth Caliph of Islam. Babajan (Tajuddin Aulia) was one of the such greatest Sufi Aulia (Mystic Saint) witnessed by the 19th century. In succeeding pages, His (Taj Baba's) birth, His pious life, His family background (Lineage), Sufi Master's (Tajudin's) spiritual or mystical (Sufi) achievements, His benevolence on mankind, His renunciation and detachment with the material gains and worldly pleasures have been dealt with for information and guidance of the readers. It is to be hoped that the readers would get solace, spiritual (sufi) guidance, harmony and eternal happoness after going through these pages and would find the website as a guideline and divine light for drifting towards a spiritually (Sufi) refined life and mysteries of mysticism (Sufism).
