Nazneena dedication to her humble Shaykh.
His Eminence Pir-e-Tariqat Hazrat Allama Maulana Muhammad Abdul Wahab Siddiqi R.A.
IN LOVING MEMORY
This dedication is to my dearest Shaykh (ra). He was a very faithful and sincere servant of Allah (swt) Almighty and a true lover and follower of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (owbp).
Hazrat Saheb (ra) was very humble and kind to everyone. He displayed patience and his calmness amid much provocation. It was a gift that he rightfully earned through his obedience and his discipline to Allah (swt) Almighty and His beloved Rasool (owbp). He proved to Allah (swt) and to the people that he was well worthy of his good and kindness.
He was always friendly and pleasant in his manners and his actions, and always generous in his advice to the people. Hazrat Saheb (ra) always dressed simply but carried with him a grace of premiership in such a manner that his taqwa was expressive from just looking at his face. People were dazzled in just his presence and were absolutely absolved in his direction.
Through love and affection of Hazrat Saheb (ra) such was the intensity of the transformation that people within his community and abroad who were deemed to be totally immoral, corrupted, and unfair in their dealings totally changed themselves.
Hazrat Saheb’s (ra) recitation of the Holy Qur’an was remarkable. Anyone who had the opportunity to listen to him, at the moment of his recitation their hearts usually filled with joy. It was not a dream neither a fantasy, it was real and very delightful. Many hearts were set free from the Shaitaan’s whispering. His Tilawat of the Holy Qur’an was so beautiful and melodious that many Shaykhs and Qaris from all over the world, especially Egypt, used to visit Hazrat Saheb (ra) and take personal recordings of his recitation. Even Non-Muslims were attracted to Hazrat Saheb (ra) rendition of Al-Qur’an. Masha-Allah Wala Hau-la Wala Qu-wata Illa Bil-La Hil-Alee Yil-Azweem
Hazrat Saheb (ra) was not only my spiritual teacher; he was my adviser, and my leader. He was also my hope, my strength and my hero. He was not only an Alim; he was a journalist, an author, an academic, a lecturer and a political scientist as well.
His teachings and his mission was the Zikr of Allah (swt), spreading the message of Allah (swt) and His Beloved Prophet Muhammad (owbp) and sending Darood and Salaam on our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (owbp) which led to peace, love and unity among the Muslim Ummah. As a true servant of Allah (swt) he was blessed with a quality that was absolutely outstanding, Alhamdu-Lillah.
The people who had the honour of meeting with him know exactly what I am saying. Those who were not fortunate enough to meet with this great humble friend of Allah (swt) should try to meet the fruits of his labour, which are his five children. They are his precious gifts, loving and wonderful children, in which anyone would be able to find most of his qualities.
I couldn’t be more proud than I am right now, knowing that myself and my family were very fortunate and blessed to meet and host this great and pious servant of Allah (swt), and his family in my little home. May Allah (swt) bless and keep him in peace and tranquility. And may Allah (swt) bless his loving family, my family, and all of his mureeds to be united with him and our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (owbp) at our demise. Ameen.
‘O Allah! (swt) Bestow wisdom on us and join us with the righteous in this world and in the hereafter.’
‘And let our entry be by the gate of truth and honour, and likewise our exit by the gate of truth and honour. Bestow on us mercy and dispose of our affairs for us in the right way. Ameen.
