Translation:

[Birth]

In his daily diary, Maulana Zakariyya Kandhlawi himself has reported his birth with the following words:

“10 Jamadil Thani 1369 AH (30 March 1950) Thursday at 5:30 am, Zubair (May Allah protect him) son of Maulvi Muhammad Inamul Hasan was born”.

It was a stroke of a good sign that two days after his birth, Shaykh-ul-Islam Maulana Syed Hussain Ahmad Madani, who was travelling to Muzaffarnagar, Bijnoor and several other places, visited Maulana Zakariyya’s house at 11:00 pm on the night of 12 Jamadil Thani (1st April 1950). He received the good news of the birth of Maulana Muhammad Zubairul Hasan, son of the third Hazratji Maulana Muhammad Inamul Hasan, son of Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Ikramul Hasan Kandhlawi. The birth took place at Saharanpur, in Maulana Zakariyya’s house on 10 Jamadil Thani 1369 AH (30 March 1950). Maulana Madani expressed his happiness and blessed him with his Du’a. [Footnote: Haji Abdul Wahab stated in a meeting that Maulana Hussain Ahmad Madani did not allow anyone to kiss his hand and immediately pulled it away. However, when Maulana Zubair used to kiss Maulana Madani’s hand when he visited Saharanpur at a very young age, Maulana Madani would not forbid him]. On the seventh day after his birth (16 Jamadil Thani / 15th April 1950 Saturday), Maulana Yusuf and Hazrat Maulana Inamul Hasan left the Tabligh Markaz Nizamuddin Delhi at 3:00 AM and had tea and breakfast with Shaykhul Islam Maulana Madani in Deoband. They reached Saharanpur and after offering prayers to the newborn congratulated his mother. They returned to Nizamuddin Delhi after Asar on the same day.

There is no mention of an Aqeeqah during this occasion in Maulana Zakariyya’s daily diary, but it is inferred that the Aqeeqah happened on the arrival of these gentlemen where the Aqeeqah ceremony was also performed on the same day. His name was suggested as Muhammad Zubair Al Hasan. His two elder brothers were Muhammad Anwarul Hasan and Muhammad Muazul Hasan.

Translation:

An elder sister of  Maulana Zubairul Hasan was the late Khula Khatoon. She was born in Rabiul Thani 1367 AH (March 1948) in Kandhla and died in Delhi on Rajab 1371 AH (April 1952). Her life was only a short 4 years. While this tragedy occurred, their respected father Maulana Inamul Hasan was on a Da’wa tour in Pakistan accompanied by Maulana Yusuf. On this sad news, Maulana Zakariyya and Maulana Ikramul Hasan travelled to Delhi to express their condolences.

Sadiqa Khatun, the second younger sister of Maulana Zubairul Hasan, was born on Friday, Rabiul Thani 1372 AH (December 1952). She is married to this humble writer (Muhammad Shahid).

[Maulana Zubair’s Father]

Maulana Zubairul Hasan’s father, Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan, was born on 18 Jamadil Awal 1336 AH (20 February 1918) in his native land of Kandhala. After memorising the Holy Quran, he read basic Arabic and Persian books from his maternal grandfather, Hakeem Abdul Hameed.

In Shawal 1351 AH (February 1933) he enrolled in Jamia Mazahir Uloom and started his education with books of intermediate level, Sharh Jami, Kunz al-Daqaiq, etc. He then joined the class of Daura e Hadith Sharif in 1354 AH (1936) (at the age of 18).

After completing his studies, he remained in the service of Maulana Ilyas Kandhlawi and participated in the work of Da’wa and Tabligh. He also took Bay’at with him and spent many times in Jamaat with Maulana Yusuf. Throughout Maulana Yusuf’s emirate, he was his friend and travelling companion. In the words of Maulana Syed Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi, he bore Maulana Yusof’s “heart and mind”. ‘In 1384 AH (1965), he became his successor and the third Hazratji.
He was authorized to pledge allegiance to Maulana Ilyas through the spiritual chain and was qualified as his Khalifa.

Page 76- Maulana Saad demands Musafaha

blank

Translation:

After the death of Maulana Zubair, the first Tablighi Ijtema was held in Raiwind (Pakistan) in Muharram 1436 AH (November 2014). At the closing prayer of the Ijtema, an incident, or more so, a tragedy, occurred. Such tragedy broke the ways and limits of modesty, obedience (Abdiyaat) and ‘Fanait’ (considering oneself as nothing) which were established by Maulana Ilyas, Maulana Yusuf and Maulana Inamul Hasan in Da’wa and Tabligh. It happened that the Shura and the wise people unanimously decided that the Musafaha (ceremonial handshaking) of the departing Jamaats should be jointly done by Maulana Saad and Maulana Zuhairul Hasan (May Allah protect them) on stage. 

After the Mashwara (meeting), Maulana Saad strongly addressed the Shura members and said: “Maulana Zuhair shall not do Musafaha together with me, I shall do Musafaha alone”

All the attendees of the Mashwara were disgusted by this remark. They replied that it was already decided in the Mashwara that the Musafaha shall be done by both of them together.

The demand and remarks of Maulana Saad came to the knowledge of many people. It shocked many people and raised many concerns. There was a fear that an ugly conflict would arise (at that blessed gathering).

Haji Abdul Wahab called upon Maulana Zuhair to his room. With his patience, insight, and compassion he advised Maulana Zuhair with the following words:

“My son, (your father) Maulana Inamul Hasan, used to send me to the outer Halaqa to do Musafaha (with the foreigners). I advise you to go and conduct the Musafaha there”

Upon this, Maulana Zuhair replied in his dearest manner without any hesitation, “I am like a son to you, I will do as you say”. He then went to conduct Musafaha at the foreigners section.
After the death of the late Maulana Zubair, when the issues of leadership rose and the unity of Da’wa and Tabligh in every country was affected, some of the so-called ‘wise’ people tried to divert the main issue.

Translation:

After the death of the late Maulana Zubair, when the issues of leadership rose and the unity of Da’wa and Tabligh in every country was affected, some of the so-called ‘wise’ people tried to divert the main issue. They started saying that it was a disagreement between two persons where each of them wanted to be the Ameer. These irresponsible ‘intellectuals’ wanted to spread hate and anger amongst the people and wanted to cause a rift between these two parties.

When this matter came to the knowledge of Maulana Zuhair, he immediately denied it in writing and speech. He stated in clear writing that had no desire to become Ameer, and it would be unimaginable for him to claim such when his father Maulana Zubair was not the Ameer of Tabligh.

The full text of his writing was read all over the world through WhatsApp and other sources and is now included in this book as well. The writing is as follows: 

[Start of Letter]

Bismillahirrahmanirraheeem

Respected and dear friends of Tabligh, May Allah SWT help us to do what he pleases.

Assalamualaykum WRTWBKTH

Many brothers have asked this lowly servant and wanted an explanation of whether this lowly servant wishes to become the next Ameer of Tableegh, or is seeking Emirate, or is the reason for Nizamuddin’s current leadership dispute.

In this regard, this lowly servant humbly submits that he neither wants Ameership nor demands it. How can he do so when his father, the late Maulana Zubairul Hasan never sought to be the Ameer nor claimed it during his life? He always demanded others subject themselves to local and global Mashwara. As such, how can this lowly servant claim such a thing?

[End of Letter]


As soon as this letter became public, the atmosphere became clear and the misunderstandings created for their purpose disappeared automatically. People now know that the matter was not bilateral but one-sided. Maulana Zuhair has completely protected himself from the temptation of leadership and subordinated himself to the World Shura.

[The Interrupted Hajj Routine]

Maulana Yusuf, Maulana Inamul Hasan and Maulana Zubairul Hassan used to go for Hajj on a fixed routine. After the death of Maulana Zubair, when the whole system of Da’wah and Tabligh, unfortunately, deviated from the Manhaj of the Elders, this routine was affected.

There was a possibility that their Hajj trip for Dhul-Hijjah 1437 AH would take place as usual. However, the trip was cancelled due to the continuous incidents and problems occurring in Nizamuddin Markaz. The reason for this can be understood from a letter written by Maulana Zuhair which he wrote to Maulana Ibrahim Dewla and Maulana Saad dated 27 Shawwal 1437 AH (2 August 2016).

[Start of Maulana Zuhair’s Letter]

Respected and Honorable Maulana Ibrahim and Maulana Saad (May the blessings of Allah last upon them)

Assalam O Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Baraktuh

It is stated that until now, I had planned to go on Hajj according to the arrangements made. However, my intention has now changed. The reason for this is due to the current situation in the Markaz. Four of my friends from Mewat came on a friendly visit to meet me after spending 40 days in Tabligh with Maulana Khubaibul Hasan. After the meeting and upon leaving my room, some of the 2 months Tarteeb People took all four of them to the basement. They were abused and beaten until they bled. They had to be admitted to the hospital as a result. All this difficulty they endured was just because they came to visit me.

The current circumstances of being in this place and the recent incidents have worried me and my family. Even my mother has advised me not to go for Hajj this year. Due to this, I have decided not to go for Hajj this year. I have also informed Mufti Shehzad to return our passports. I will be going to Saharanpur for two days in the morning. 

I just want to let you know this in writing. Wassalam

blank

Translation:

During this entire journey to Medina, Hazrat comforted the late Maulana Zubair and took special care of his food and drink. Knowing that they liked samosas very much, Hazrat appointed a servant to buy them from the market every day.

After receiving Ijaza and Khalifa, Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan used to allow people associated with Dhikr, Amal, Ihsaan and Sulook to associate themselves with Maulana Zubair.

[An excerpt from Maulana Zakariyya’s Daily Diary]

“Today, on Friday prayers, Zubair was given Ijaza (permission) to accept allegiance (on the chain of Maulana Zakariyya) in Masjid Nabawi. The letter of Ijaza was given to Maulana Zubair by Abdul Hafeez. Abdul Hafeez wrote the letter the night before. In the morning, Abdul Hafeez went to the holy Masjid, took a short nap and saw the holy Prophet (SAW) in a dream. In that dream, Zubair was clothed with a long coat and turban tied on Zubair’s head with the holy Prophet’s (SAW) blessed hands. Barakallah!’’

[An entry from the third Hazratji’s (Maulana Inamul Hasan) diary]

Respected father Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan has recorded this memorable pledge of allegiance in his diary with these words!

“10 February 1978, Friday, Hazrat Sheikh (Maulana Zakariyya) permitted the taking of allegiance for my dear Zubair under his chain in front of Bab Majidi in Medina today. Oh Allah, accept and grant him what you love and are pleased with! In Maulvi Najibullah’s letter, it is mentioned that Maulana Zakairyya mentioned the date to be 3 Rabi-ul-Awwal 1398 AH (10 February on Friday)”

Translation:

(As part of their training in Tareeqat and Ihsaan) Maulana Zakariyya instructed Maulana Zubairul Hassan, “If someone asks you to bring an item for him, don’t do it. If they ask you why, tell them that Zakariyya has forbidden it.”

The men who are in the path of Tareeqat and Ihsaan can understand the real spirit and essence of this instruction. It is the same with the root and foundation of Chishtiya. The essence is to follow, obey, love and be linked with a Sheikh. Such was the obedience to the Sheikh that he (Maulana Zubair) even refused a simple demand from a person like myself (Shahid) to bring a clock to him. He fully obeyed the instructions of his Sheikh (i.e. don’t do anything for anyone).

May God Almighty have mercy on him.

[Second Permutation of the Ilyasian (Maulana Ilyas) Chain]

As it is known, Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan had permission to take pledges of allegiance in all four chains of Tariqa from Maulana Ilyas. Muhammad Ilyas gave him this permission on the last day of his life on 22 June 1944 (1 Rajab 1363 AH) in the presence of scholars and Mashaikh. He said the following:

“Maulana Inam is an excellent person. He has been very much involved in the work (of Da’wa) and Zikr and is also part of the (Tablighi) Jamaat. However, he (says) that he intends to do more teaching than Da’wa”

Maulana Inamul Hasan had accepted Bay’ah from only a few people during the lifetime of Maulana Yusuf. However, after assuming the great burden as the Ameer of Da’wa, people from the East, West, North and South turned towards him. The chain of allegiance and Irshad continued to widen day after day. In almost all countries of the world, Maulana Inamul Hasan’s mentors and hand-picked people were present. Despite all of this, no one other than Maulana Zubairul Hasan was allowed to take the pledge of allegiance under the chain of Maulana Inamul Hasan (Only Maulana Zubair had the right to take Bayah under Maulana Inamul Hasan’s chain).

This permission was given to Maulana Zubair on the advice of Mufti Zainul Abidin (Faisalabad, Pakistan), Maulana Qazi Abdul Qadir (Jhawariyan Pakistan) and Maulana Muhammad Umar Palanpuri on 16 November 1983 (10 Safar 1404 AH).

[Two more Ijaza in the Qadri chain]

Maulana Shah Abdul Qadir Raipuri was one of the great pious people and among the godly persons of his time. His spiritual lineage spread widely. Many Khalifas and authorised scholars continued his Sulook and Ihsaan until today. Among his Sufi Khalifas were Maulana Syed Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi and Maulana Iftikharul Hasan Kandhlawi who were widely known due to their distinctive qualities. The late Maulana Zubairul Hasan had the permission and Sufi Khalifa from both these two personalities (making him part of the Qadri Chain.

This book continuously emphasizes the importance of allegiance and its place in Da’wah and Tabligh. This has been clearly explained and emphasized in the last four or five pages of this book. Authentic and reliable historical references have been provided. This fact should be clear to the readers. It has happened that despite giving his entire life and wealth with full sincerity in Da’wa and Tabligh, Maulana Ilyas, Maulana Yusuf, Maulana Inamul Hasan, Maulana Haroon, Maulana Talha and Maulana Zubair never denied for a moment nor in single words the importance of Suloo, Ihsaan, Tariqa and Shari’ah to Da’wa and Tabligh.

In such a situation, whoever denigrates this work of Da’wa calling it having turned into a “Peer and Murshid cult”, such person has not only deviated from the footsteps of his superiors and family elders but is also helping and agreeing with opponents and enemies of Sulook and Ihsaan.

Translation:

In this Ijtema, Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan was very weak in health. It was advised that the ceremonial handshake (Musafaha) was to be done by his son Maulana Zubairul Hassan instead. All local and foreign Jamaats took the Musafaha with him.

[Ijtema of Hyderabad]

On 17, 18 and 19 Shawwal 1414 AH  (30, 31 March and 1st April 1994), an Ijtema was held in Hyderabad. Due to the long distance and the intense heat, Hazratji felt dizzy and fainted while taking Bay’ah.

On the same day, after Asr, there was a Nikah in which he was supposed to perform the Sermon. Due to Hazratji’s illness, Maulana Umar Palanpuri did the sermon and Maulana Zubair performed the Nikah instead. A total of eighty-four marriages took place. Maulana Zubair also led the Friday prayers during the Ijtema. Hazratki offered Friday prayers at his place of stay where this writer led the prayers.

[Ijtema of Belgaum (Karnataka)]

27-29 Jumadi Al-Thani 1415 AH (3-5 December 1994) – An Ijtema was held in Belgaum Karnataka. This was probably the first Ijtema in which Maulana Zubairul Hassan against the tradition of the past years, was not present due to his illness. So I (the writer) was tasked to accompany his father (Maulana Inamul Hasan) with a strict guideline from Maulana Zubair that I should serve his father well and keep myself on top of his every need.

Maulana Zubairul Hassan then travelled from Delhi by air to attend the Tarnal Valley Ijtima from the Belgaum.

 [Maulana Zaubair’s foreign travels with his late father]

Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan made 147 trips to 33 countries in his 32 years as the Ameer. The entire history of these travels has been contained in another book from this writer, entitled “The Biography of Hazratji Volume 3”.

In this book, only a few of the journeys are mentioned. Emphasis is given to the journeys in which Maulana Zubair also accompanied him.

[The three tours of Sri Lanka]

During Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan’s tenure as the Ameer, his first foreign trip was to Sri Lanka. It started from Delhi in Jamadil Thani 1387 AH (August 1967) and ended on 11 September (6 Jamadil Thani) in the same year. Maulana Umar Palanpuri, Maulana Haroon and many of his regular friends travelled together.

(1) Hazratji made his second journey to Sri Lanka on Delhi 3 Rajab 1393 AH (3 August 1973). It ended on 2 September while returning to Bangalore etc. Maulana Umar, Maulana Ahmad Lat, Maulana Haroon, Maulana Zubair, Maulana Muhammad Bin Sulaiman, Qari Muhammad Zaheer, etc. accompanied him. One sad fact is that this second journey was the last journey of Maulana Haroon (before he passed away). It was also the first journey of Maulana Zubairul Hasan.

(2) Maulana Inamul Hasan’s third trip to Sri Lanka was for Madras (Chennai) Dundee Gu. The journey started on 2 June 1976 (3 Jumadil Thani 1396 AH) and ended on 27 June (28 Jumadil Thani) reaching Delhi.

Muhammad Zubairul Hasan. Raiwand, Tuesday after Isha

During the journey of Muharram 1403 AH (November 1982), the late Maulana Zubair accompanied his father on the journey and continued to explain the virtues of Juma, five daily prayers and the virtues of dhikr after Asr. After a long journey to Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Bangladesh etc., he arrived in Delhi while passing through Karachi for their Ijtema.

Muharram 1404H – During the annual meeting held in November 1983, on the mutual advice of two distinguished personalities of Da’wa and Tabligh, Mufti Zainul Abedin and Maulana Qazi Abdul Qadir, Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan took a great step to protect the doctrine and methodology of Da’wah and Tabligh. He formed an Aalami (World) Shura to safeguard the effort’s noble aims.

The late Mufti Zainal Abidin himself penned down his advice to Hazratji:

[Start of Mufti Zainal Abidin’s Diary]

(An important piece of advice with Hazrat Ji Maulana Inamul Hasan Sahib)

After the Ijtima on 12 November 1983 (6 Safar 1404 AH), at the time after Isha, I (Mufti Zainal Abidin) and Qazi Abdul Qadir Sahib requested Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan to form a Shura for the work. We also advised him to give permission (to accept allegiance) to Maulana Zubair (his son). Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan remained silent.

”کبرت کلمۃ تخرج من افواھھم” 

The word that comes out of their mouths is too big

23 Jamadil Awwal 1419 (7 October 1998) Monday – Maulana Zubair instructed me on the phone that a warm letter had arrived from Sahibzada (Maulana Saad). I should come to Delhi and see it.

So, the next day, I came to Delhi and Maulana Zubair read the letter in front of me. After reading the letter, Maulana Zubair, who was a man of God-gifted patience and forbearance decided that it was best that I stop my Da’wa travels for now. This was despite that it was Hazratji himself who had always instructed and allowed me to travel in the past. I decided not to go to Raiwand Ijtema that year.

Maulana Zubair thereafter informed Maulana Saad “Shahid has decided not to go. We have decided to accept and make Sabr on this matter”

Alhamdulillah! We thank Allah SWT who made us to be the ones being envied upon, and not the ones who are envious!

24 Jamadil Thani (7 November 1998) – Maulana Zubair sent a message to me while leaving for Lahore. He mentions that things have more or less settled now and I should come as well. I can take my ticket and visa from Brother Sharafullah. I however apologized and declined to go. I told him that I didn’t want Maulana Saad to cause any commotion there. Such chaos would damage the work.

The previous year’s Ijtema of 1418 AH (1997) was held on 7-9 November (6-8 Rajab). A few months before this gathering, Maulana Umar Palanpuri passed away. Maulana Zubair participated in this gathering with full respect and dignity.

A few days before the Ijtema of 1419 AH (1998), Maulana Saeed Ahmad Khan passed away in Madinah and was buried there in Jannatul-Baqi.

Maulana Zubair along with his main convoy participated in the Raiwand Ijtema. {Page 320} He followed all matters decided in Mashwara and observed good manners. Before his departure,  he performed the last Dua while giving some words of advice to the people.

In Bangladesh Tongi Ijtema, on Saturday after Asr, Maulana Zubairul Hasan’s talk was translated by Maulana Qari Jubayr into Bangla.

After Isha, this humble writer went to the tent of the Ulema of Bangladesh and met many scholars there. Some of them were students of Hazrat Sheikh Maulana Zakariyya. Shaykh Ghanim also came to my tent for a meeting. He was given the book “Insight into the Da’wah and its Understanding (English edition)”. The unpublished Arabic translation was also shown to him.

On Sunday, after Fajr prayers, I (Mohammad Shahid) and Aziz Mohammad Saleh along with Maulvi Abu Jafar Bangladesh went to the Markaz in Shondhra. This Markaz was established eight to ten years ago by Maulana Abdul Rehman Mufti Azam of Bangladesh. A department specializing in Hadith was also established here. When I was taken to this department, I was shown some of my books of Hadith. They told me that they had established this department after being inspired by my writings. They also used some of my writings to establish the department’s principles and curriculum.

Here, a few students also showed me their research on the Takhreej of Fazail Aamaal. I made a photocopy of it for myself.

After Asr today, in a special ceremony (part of the Tongi Ijtema), Maulana Zubairul Hassan performed thirteen Nikahs. After Maghrib, Maulana Ahmed Laat gave the Bayan. After dinner, a trip to Thailand and surrounding countries was suggested.

On behalf of Maulana Saad, Muntakhab Ahaadith in Arabic and English were distributed throughout the day (during the Tongi Ijtema). Maulana Saad brought two bundles of the Kitaab with him from Delhi.
On the morning of the 21 January, Monday, Maulana Saad departed. The last bayan and final dua was performed by Maulana Zubair which took half an hour. President Hasina and Khaleda Zia also attended the prayers. This event was reported in the newspapers.

Again, on 15 Ramadan (24 October), he (Maulana Zubair) came to Saharanpur to serve Hazrat Sheikh Maulana Zakariyya for a day. He was accompanied by his father.

Maulana Izharul Hasan came from Nizamuddin Markaz to live in the monastic environment to serve Hazrat Sheikh Maulana Zakariyya for two days in the first of the 10 days of Ramadhan. Maulana Zakariyya however sent him back to the Markaz. This incident was explained in the Daily Diary of Maulana Zakariyya:

“Zakaria asked him to go back to Nizamuddin. He was needed due to the large number of people attending the Markaz.”

This year, for the first time, Maulana Zubair led the Eidul Fitr prayers in the Markaz.

Ramadan 1393 AH: This Mubarak month started with the tragic accident of Maulana Haroon. The entire month was filled with great sadness.

Maulana Zubair himself was greatly affected and heartbroken by this tragedy. This can be seen from the writings in his diary which he had written after the death of his late brother Haroon.

“The death of Maulana Haroon was an immense and heart-wrenching tragedy. He died at 11:35 am.”

At half-past twelve, the Janaza body arrived at Markaz by ambulance. The body was placed in the adjacent room of the mic. Ghusl was given after Friday. Maulana Saeed Khan, Maulana Ubaidullah, Mamun Iftikhar, Maulvi Dawood, Maulvi Sulaiman, Sufi Usman performed the Janaza ghusl.
The women folk were allowed to visit the Janaza before Asr. After Asr, the funeral prayers were performed at 64 Kumbe with Hazratji. At 6:55 pm {Page 380} Maulana Haroon was buried near (the grave) of his late mother. May Allah SWT forgive and have mercy on his soul.

Soon, it was not just Pakistan and Bangladesh, but Allah SWT allowed us to travel to Haram Sharif, America, England, Australia, Fiji, Mauritius, Germany, etc. Allah’s door of sustenance also opened for this writer providing him the necessary expenses for his domestic and foreign travel. When Allah gives, the servant takes. Soon, so many travel needs came that we had to refuse some of them.

With all these issues such as travels, etc (which would have been detrimental to the Work), by Allah, peace and contentment increased in our hearts! We believe from the bottom of our hearts that Allah SWT will protect this work. He will only use people who are greater or equal to Maulana Inamul Hasan to fulfil the responsibilities of Da’wah and Tabligh.

The final point to make is that this work is not a child’s play. The foundations set by Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan, his qualities and unwavering trust and belief in Allah are crucial elements to the work of Da’wah

The events that have been written in this chapter occurred in the last months and years of the life of Hazrat Sheikh Maulana Muhammad Zakaria.

Translation:

Maulana Zubairul Hasan recited the Quran in the last ten days. Maulana Umar Palanpuri accompanied him on this journey.

Even before this, Maulana Zubairul Hasan had performed Iktikaf for one night on 16 Ramadan with Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan.

Ramadan 1400 AH – A few days before the beginning of this Mubarak month of Ramadhan, Maulana Zubair returned from a trip to Bahrain, England, and America. He was accompanied by his respected father. Maulana Zubair and his father came to Saharanpur in the car of Mr Alhaji Hafiz Karamatullah to meet their relatives. After staying there for a night, he returned to Delhi exhausted. At the time, the month of Ramadan was about to begin.

As it was usually practised, Quran recitation (in Taraweeh) was conducted in Nizamuddin Markaz this year. The full Quran recitation was completed on the twenty-seventh night with Hazratji’s Dua. The Dua took 45 minutes and everyone was crying. The next day, Maulana Zubair recited random surahs from the Holy Quran (during Taraweeh).

Among the important events and incidents of this Ramadan is the death of Hafiz Maqbool Hasan. He was the Soofi Khalifa Majaz and was a person of great Karamat (i.e. miracles always occur on him). He was personally trained by Maulana Ilyas. His death took place on Sunday Midnight 13th of Ramadan (27th July 1980). Maulana Zubair visited Delhi accompanied by Hazratji to participate in his funeral and burial in Astana Shah Gul.

19 Ramadan (2nd August) – Maulana Zubair arrived in Saharanpur on a Sunday. He stayed at my house. He broke his fast and performed Taraweeh here. Many relatives of his family also gathered on this occasion.

Translation:

On the 20th of Ramadan, after reading the Quran at Maulana Zakariyya’s residence, I departed for Delhi using the Dehradun Express. I broke my fast at Muzaffarnagar station and safely reached the Markaz by 10:00 pm.

I had to return to Saharanpur on the third of Shawwal. However, when I mentioned this to Maulana Zubair, Maulana Zubair insisted that I should stay here in Delhi for now.

As I could not change my plan, I told Maulana Zubair that I would return after two days. I had some important work to do at Mazahirul Uloom Saharanpur. I reached Saharanpur (from Delhi) in the evening of Friday 8 Shawwal. After staying for one day, I left for Delhi again by bus on Sunday morning at 10 Shawwal.

Ramadan 1419 AH: Taraweeh prayer in the Markaz was led by Maulana Zubair. On the twenty-seventh Ramadhan, I reached Delhi, participated in the prayer at the end of the Khatme Quran and returned to Saharanpur the next day.

19 Ramadan 1419 AH (8 January 1999): On the night of Friday, Maulana Zubair sent Maulana Ahmed Lat to Saharanpur to recite and offer (Taraweeh) prayers and complete the recitation of the Holy Quran in Mutikaf Sheikh. On the same night of this Ramadan, Maulana Muhammad Talha and Maulana Ahmad Lat were included in the spiritual chain of Hazrat Sheikh Maulana Zakariyya and were permitted to take Bayah as his (Soofi) Khalifa.

Hazrat Maulana Syed Abul Hasan Nadwi passed away on Friday 22 Ramadan (31 December) this year. On receiving this information, Maulana Zubair reached Delhi airport intending to go to Lucknow after completing his Itikaf. All arrangements for the trip were made. However, due to heavy fog and rain, the flights to Lucknow were postponed. He therefore could not make the trip.

Ramadan 1420 AH: The Taraweeh prayer this year was also led by Maulana Zubair. On one of the last nights (of Ramadhan), after the Quran recitation was completed, I returned to {Page 410} Delhi on the 27th morning of Ramadan.

Translation:

[The demise of 3rd Hazratji and the rain of temptations]

On 9th Muharram 1416 AH (9th June 1995), with the demise of the 3rd Hazratji, Maulana Inamul Hassan RA, the prosperous period that began in the blessed era of Maulana Ilyas RA ended.

Immediately after this sorrowful demise, several members of the World Council (Shura) established by Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan RA – namely, Haji Abdul Wahab, Mufti Zainul Abidin and Bhay Afzal among others, came to the Delhi Markaz of Tabligh. After the funeral and burial, on 12th June 1995 (12th Muharram 1416 AH), these members made two significant decisions in a Mashwara:

First: Without appointing any person as the Ameer, they appointed a (Shura) council of five people for the Banglawali Masjid. It was decided that these council (Shura) members would manage the affairs of Da’wah and Tabligh as Faisal (decision maker), alternating every week.

Second: the pledge of allegiance ceremony (Bay’at) is discontinued within the boundaries of Nizamuddin Markaz. Now, no one here will take allegiance (Bay’at) from anyone.

May Allah SWT bless the late Maulana Zubair! He took great care in this matter of Bay’at, honouring this decision of the World Shura after the demise of the 3rd Hazratjii. This is despite being granted the Ijazah and Khalifa by Hazrat Sheikh Maulana Zakariyya Kandhlawi for Tabligh purposes and despite many elders of the time having directed their students towards him for their spiritual progress. He had made it his routine that when he was asked to accept a pledge of allegiance (Bay’at) {Page 422} he would say that his father’s allegiance (Bay’at) is enough, “Continue following my father’s instructions and you can ask for clarifications if needed”.

He had made it his routine that when he was asked to accept a pledge of allegiance (Bay’at) {Page 422} he would say that his father’s allegiance (Bay’at) is enough, “Continue following my father’s instructions and you can ask for clarifications if needed”.

The author used to witness very often in his Majlis, that the people of Da’wa and the scholars would insist him to pledge allegiance to them, but he refused saying that it was forbidden by the Shura.

When a big and shady tree falls for any reason, not only its sound travels far, but the dust and dirt from its fall spread far and wide, affecting the air around it.

Allah SWT has created such a system. With the departure of His true lovers and sincere ones, the atmosphere of the world becomes dull and spoiled. Temptations that were avoided due to their blessing of nightly tears are open after their departure. Flattery and hypocrisy start, and inner evil causes hatred between hearts.

Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hassan RA was undoubtedly one of the distinguished devotees of Allah SWT in this era. He was considered one of the great saints, he was the Sheikh of “Sahib-e-Irshad” of his time. His unique qualities were Da’wah and Dua’. He was the embodiment of both Jala’l and Jama’l (glory and beauty). He was bestowed with the honour of empowerment and strength from Allah SWT. He was the best heir of Maulana Ilyas RA and the true successor of Maulana Yusuf RA. According to the unanimous decision of Maulana Zakariyya RA and all the elders at that time, he impeccably fulfilled his duties regarding this inheritance and succession (of the work of Da’wa).

So, it happened in the way it was meant to be… 

Upon his departure, the evil doors of temptations continued to open. As a poetry would say:

Translation:

یاروں نے گھر کے صحن میں رستہ بنا لیا

“As soon as the wall of my mud house fell. Friends began to use the courtyard of my house as a pathway.”

Since he was leading the global work as a global Ameer, the temptations also manifested at a global level.

Some of these temptations took such a dangerous form that shook the foundations of the Markaz of Tabligh Nizamuddin. As sincerity, devotion, and godliness slowly faded away, some perceptive eyes witnessed the souls of Maulana Ilyas, Maulana Zakariyya, Maulana Yusuf and Maulana Inamul Hasan RA shedding tears over it.

[The patience, endurance, and silence of the Maulana Muhammad Zubair R.A]

Even at that time and to this day, the world has acknowledged in all those challenging and patience-testing circumstances, the late Maulana Zubair remained a symbol of steadfastness, determination, resilience, acceptance, and contentment. Even in the face of the gravest incidents, he did not utter a word of complaint. He could have done a lot in retaliation and schemes could have been devised against them. Yet, he chose not to.

Extensive efforts were made to completely erase the name and work of his late father. Along with that, a lot of efforts were made to push Maulana Zubair himself against the wall. He was dealt with great disrespect. At every step, he was jeered upon. It was told that whether he was there or absent, it made no difference within the Markaz. Just as his father was never needed in the past, he was not needed as well. Regardless, it was his temperament, perfection and special quality that persevered. He used to go to the Markaz daily Mashwara at nine o’clock in the morning with an open heart, contentment and enthusiasm. Yet, due to the way the personal and Da’wa affairs were handled, he would return {Page 424} with great discomfort and sadness.

Translation:

Yet, due to the way the personal and Da’wa affairs were handled, he would return {Page 424} with great discomfort and sadness. In these sessions, he would witness the blatant display of power and authority. Still, he would remain silent, doing nothing more. When things became unbearable, he would at most skip participating in the Mashwara for consecutive days.

After the passing of his father, he embraced patience and contentment as his worship. He adopted silence as his practice. He observed and listened to everything in the Markaz from morning till evening with the seal of silence remaining unbroken on his lips. The inspiration for his conduct was undoubtedly guidance received from his late father in a dream. The words spoken to him were:

 “Tell Zubair and Shahid to keep silent but keep an eye on what each one is doing.”

Once, under similar harsh circumstances, when he returned to his room after Mashwara, his face bore a strong impression of sadness. At the same time, some of Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan’s special companions came into the room and asked permission to express their views on the situation. It was nearing the moment when the deceased Maulana’s eyes were on the verge of overflowing with tears. His bonds of restraint were about to break. However, the author (present in this gathering) immediately recited the poems of the famous Persian poet “Khaqani“. Not only did it cool down the rising tensions among the participants, but it also changed the topic of the gathering as well.

The poetry of Khaqani goes as follows!

قل ھو اللہ کہ وصف خالق ما است                         زیر تبت یدا ابی لھب است

مھر فروتر نشست خاقانی                                                                          نے مرا ننگ نے ترا ادب است

Qul Hu Wallah, that is the attribute of our Creator,
it is situated under the Surah Tabbat.
If Khaqani’s seat is lower,
neither is this a matter of shame for me
nor is it a place of manners for you.”

Such was the fate, that at every moment possible, his father’s 32 years of Imarat and work of Da’wah was negated in front of Maulana Zubair himself! It was blatantly said in front of the pulpit, that his 32-year Imarat has destroyed the work of Da’wah and must be gradually removed.

‌Sahebzada Sahib (Maulana Saad) continuously mentions in his speeches that till Maulana Yusuf, this work was {425} the real Da’wa & Tabligh. After that, it has been downgraded into an Organization* (Tahreek).

Translation:

‌Sahebzada Sahib (Maulana Saad) continuously mentions in his speeches that till Maulana Yusuf, this work was {Page 425} the real Da’wa & Tabligh. After that, it has been downgraded into an Organization* (Tahreek).

(*Translator’s note: Maulana Saad used the word ‘Tahreek’ or sometimes ‘Tanzeem’ which means ‘movement’ or ‘organization’ but in a negative sense. It conveys the meaning that Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hassan has downgraded the original Da’wah mission into a contemporary Islamic movement. When viewed this way, he indirectly means that Hazratji has made the movement useless and only claims to work for Islam, but in reality, they are working for a non-Islamic cause and not following the prophetic method of Da’wah)

Even ordinary listeners could not tolerate the poison in his sentence. Imagine how hurtful it was for the late Maulana Zubair! It was forbidden to mention Hazratji’s name in daily speeches or mention the activities of Dawah and Tabligh in his era. Such was the poison that It was even forbidden to mention the magnitude, popularity and reception of the work in foreign countries during Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan’s time. Maulana Zubair, who was a great servant of Allah, although expressed great sorrow over this, kept silent and never protested against it. If he had done something about it, there would have been no doubt that the entire world would have stood by him as the world was not blind to deny the position of Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan. 

In the first few years after Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan passed away, Maulana Saad used to say:

“There are two enemies of Dawah. First: Maulana Zakariyya, who gave my grandfather’s emirate (Ameership) to Maulana Inamul Hasan, and the other enemy is Maulana Inamul Hasan, who has downgraded this cause into an organization* (Tahreek).”

(*See previous Translator’s note)

Maulana Saad later realized the toxicity and danger of his words. He realized that it was not easy to hit two mountains at the same time. He would then stop criticizing Maulana Zakariyya and would only target Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan afterwards.

It is a glory-be-to-Allah and a lesson to be learned that those who claim to ‘fix’ the ‘32-year problem’ which they fictionally say it was caused by Hazratji, were not at all remotely comparable to his vast, profound personality and spiritual level. It is like comparing an atom particle to the Sun.

It is true as the Holy Quran says:

“It is not the eyes, but the hearts in the chests that have grown blind”.(46:Al-Hajj)

Also, in the last twenty to twenty-two years, countless quotes and sayings have been falsely attributed to Maulana Ilyas RA and Maulana Yusuf RA from the pulpit. All these false quotes were mostly baseless. This is the reason why thankfully, such quotes failed to spread in the Markaz.

On 25 Shawwal 1437 AH (30 July 2016), Maulana Ismail Godhra, Maulana Usman Kakusi Gujarat, Maulana Abdul Rehman Ruyana, Bhay Farooq Bangalore, Professor Khalid Siddiqui Aligarh, Professor Mohammad Hassan Lucknow, Professor Sanaullah Aligarh, Professor Abdul Rehman Madras, compiled a long letter with their signatures. It was entitled The responsibles of Da’wa & Tabligh and the well-wishers of the nation. This letter was sent to the responsible brothers of Da’wah & Tabligh in India, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Belgium, Egypt, France and Yemen, etc. It mentions this sinister attempt to tarnish the personality of Hazratji Maulana Inam-l-Hassan RA, making his personality and work worthless. it mentions the following:

“Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan has confused the work of Da’wa and Tabligh” with an organization*. It was said in front of the crowd that only in the time of Maulana Ilyas and Maulana Yusuf was the real work carried out. Later it was downgraded into an organization*. The harmful effect of this was that people started saying that Maulana Inamul Hasan failed to understand the work of Da’wah from these two earlier elders. The thirty (30) years period of Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan was a waste.”

(*See previous Translator’s note)

Having listened to these venomous words, in the last 20/22 years, hundreds of letters from the workers of Tabligh in India and overseas were received. They would ask more or less the following:

Has Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan not engaged in any notable endeavours during his 30-year tenure? Has he not undertaken any commendable initiatives? Didn’t the work Da’wah flourished during his time? The truth is, Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan’s existence was such a {Page 427} blessing that as soon as he passed away, the hearts weakened and chaos increased in the work and amongst the workers. Morale also declined day by day with no remedy in sight.

This writer himself has personally read and kept dozens of letters from elders of Tabligh around the world on this matter!

Due to his constant attack on Hazratji, in one incident, I confronted an old Muqeem (resident) who had been staying in the Delhi Markaz for many years. I begged him to mention Maulana Inamul Hasan’s name or relate any of his glorious stories in his speech.

On this request of mine, he replied in an apologetic and sad tone that as of now, he was only allowed to give speeches once every two months. It is without saying that he will soon be prevented from giving speeches anymore.

After listening to his reply, I had no choice but to accept his apology and the fact that this was the reality we were living in.

Glory be to Allah SWT and his unseen system at play! Despite all this, the Ulema, Mashaikh and Ahlul-Qalub of the time were all unanimous in acknowledging the late Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan. Hazratji fully followed the principles established by his predecessors while expanding the work of Da’wah & Tabligh universally. The strongest proof of this is that at the beginning of his Imaraat, some people from a certain region protested against him. The bad effect of their efforts began to reach Nizamuddin Markaz. Hazratji sought permission from Maulana Zakariyya RA to leave Nizamuddin Markaz. He wanted to migrate to Madinah Munawarah to participate in Da’wa there in the company of Maulana Saeed Ahmad Khan RA.

Translation:

Maulana Zakariyya RA replied in a very humble but strong tone:

“Moulvi Inam, don’t ever think of doing that! I am convinced with full certainty that no one in the Markaz has the capacity and capability to lead this work other than yourself.”

However, those who are enslaved by their desires can never understand the unseen system of Allah SWT. Such a system that Allah SWT himself makes those who sacrifice themselves sincerely for Islam, their name and work shall be made prominent forever. The greater fact is that Allah SWT protects their “ship”, and orders the “storms” to take their ship to the shore.

حفاظت جس سفینہ کی انہیں منظور ہوتی ہے

کنارہ پر اسے خود لا کے طوفاں چھوڑ جاتے ہیں

“The boat that God wants to protect,
The storms themselves bring it to the shore.”

So that has happened exactly here! In the form of a World Shura, the “ship” that has hit the shore and has now come to the coast in view. Rather than an individual system, a collective system began and the personality of Hazratji Maulana Inamul Hasan RA was recognized everywhere.

Referring to the title of this chapter “The Rain of Temptations”, it is concluded that in the twenty years of the late Maulana Zubairul Hassan RA, there were hundreds of small and big trials and incidents in which he was tested. He succeeded in them all with patience and perseverance.

Some of the trials were so severe that they affected Maulana Zubair RA for several weeks and months. However, he endured them all with patience and perseverance to ensure that the name of the Markaz and the collective work of Da’wah and Tabligh would remain untarnished and unaffected. I am writing this with Almighty Allah SWT as my witness, {Page 429} who is All-Knowing and knows what’s in our hearts.

Translation:

I am writing this with Almighty Allah SWT as my witness, {Page 429} who is All-Knowing and knows what’s in our hearts. I have seen Maulana Zubair repeatedly cry with hiccups in solitude, not for himself but for the work of Da’wah. When I would say words to console him, he used to reply:

“Shahid! My soul is in great difficulty. If I say anything, there is fear of Fitna. Yet if I remain silent, this work will suffer. Such is the responsibility that has been placed on me.”

[Acknowledgment of his patience by an old companion]

A gentleman based in Saudi Arabia, who has spent his entire life, wealth and time in the work of Da’wah and Tabligh, narrated this incident to me.

“Once upon a time, I was faced with a very difficult situation that even my friends turned away from me. As a result of this, my attachment to the work of Da’wah greatly decreased.

Suddenly, it occurred to me to go to Haram Makki to pray and cry in front of Allah SWT. While holding the veil of the Kaaba, I began to pray. At that time, there was an intense feeling in my heart that I should travel to Nizamuddin Markaz and present all my stories to Maulana Zubair and consult with him. So I contacted Maulana Zubair on the phone and asked for permission to come to Delhi. Maulana Zubair invited me to Delhi with great pleasure and favour. I arrived there and told in detail my stories, confusions, troubles and the distancing of my friends and the sufferings that had come from them.
