Issue Date: 2016
Description: All praises are for the Allah Almighty alone; none is worthy of worship but He. The Self-Subsisting, the One Who sustains and protects (the entire universe with His strategy); who is eternally Alive; he is seized by neither slumber nor sleep; whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth belongs to Him alone. No one can dare intercede with Him except by His permission. He knows all that is happening or has happened before the creation, and all that is about to happen after them and nothing is out of His knowledge. The Throne of His Empire and Power, encompasses the heavens and the earth; he is the most Honoured and the most Wise. Thousands of blessings and salutation for the Holy Prophet, the chief of Allah‟s creation, embodiment of Divine light, blessing on the entire creation, beloved of the Magnificent and the intercessor on the Day of Judgment. Whose sacred self is blessing in itself, salutations upon him by Allah, His angels and all the creation. He is the life for this universe and medium between Allah and mankind. He is forever present among the lovers of Allah, he listens and heals the broken hearts, converses with his lovers and is a source of compassion for seekers of Allah and the entire creation. In the history of mysticism, Faqr and spirituality no one has gained marifat of Allah without taking oath of allegiance on the hands of the perfect spiritual guide. No one became a perfect Saint and experienced supreme marifat and vision of Allah without the training of the perfect spiritual guide. Ghazali became renowned after he had left teaching the religious lessons to experience mystical states under the spiritual guidance of Yusuf al-Nassaj. Rumi got legendary after coming in servitude of his spiritual teacher Shams Tabrizi. He himself says that he could not have been elevated from a simple Muslim priest to the renowned Rumi unless he had not come in the servitude of his spiritual guide Shams Tabrizi. History is repleted with such examples. According to western thinkers, Islam has encountered political decline many a times but it never experienced spiritual decline. After the decline of Ottoman Caliphate and Mughals in subcontinent, the western colonization encouraged those schools of thought and sects whose foundation lies in opposition of spirituality and mysticism and its followers were named as infidels and polytheists. Some of these people were holders of the superior seats of shrines and to exploit the devotees of Sufis they were given vast lands. On the basis of these lands and to become powerful, part in politics became inevitable hence spirituality and mysticism wrongly became part of politics and feudalism. Sufis went into solitude when none remained for the purity of nafs (ethereal self). This area came under thugs, forgers and fraudulent. But remember! Seekers of Allah who strive hard to search the spiritual guide, they surely receive guidance and will keep receiving till the Day of Judgment. After succession to the throne of spiritual guidance and persuasion I wrote a pamphlet for the guidance of seekers of truth titled “Murshid Kamil Akmal” (The perfect and accomplished spiritual guide shortened in English edition to „the perfect spiritual guide‟). Its first addition was published in September 2005, second addition April 2006, third edition September 2007, fourth edition 2008 and fifth 2009. Now it is being published with amendments, modifications and additions in the form of a book with an ISBN, therefore this is the first edition as a book. The book “Murshid Kamil Akmal” is written for the guidance of seekers of Allah, to convey, who is the perfect spiritual guide? What is his importance? What we get after reaching him? And who is an imperfect and fake guide? The aim of publishing this book is not merely to be read and then kept aside. Instead, it is desired that the readers understand the purpose for which the book is written and then act upon it. This book is a guide for the seekers of Allah who are wandering in search of the true and perfect spiritual guide.
