Shaykh Hafiz Mohammad Habib-Ur-Rehman (R.A)


The Leader of the Saints Khadim-e-Khaas of RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam Hazrat Qibla Peer Hafiz Muhammad Habib-ur-Rehman Sahib (Rahmat Ullah Aleih) known as Lasani Paak is a Wali-e-Kamil, blessed with immense love of Rasool Allah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam great wisdom and vast knowledge of Fiqah, Hadith Sahreef and Holy Quran. The day this blessed saint came to this world, Qibla-e-Aalam Hazrat Hafiz Abdul Karim (R.A) known as Hazrat Qibla Bava-jee Sahib declared "This child is a Wali by birth".

Hazrat Lasani Sahib (R.A) came at a time when people needed a source of help, and formula and that formula is the eternal love of RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam. Lasani Sahib (R.A) spread the message of Islam and invited Muslims to the real centre of knowledge and power which is Madinah-tul-Manawarah. Lasani Sahib (R.A) always advised his devotees to love RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam from the core of their hearts. He devoted not just his entire life but also his generations for the spread of the message of love for the final Messenger of Allah (Rasoolulah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam).

Hazrat Lasani Sahib (R.A) used to deliver Dars of Holy Quran for hours and hours. No one could ever question his intelligence and command on the knowledge of Hadith and Holy Quran. Once a scholar came to Hazrat Lasani Sahib (R.A) with a Za'ef (fake) Hadith and said, "Hazrat this hadith is correct." Hazrat Lasani Sahib (R.A) replied, "No janab it's not correct." The scholar said," But look it's written in the books". The Great Shaykh Qibla –e-Aalam Lasani Paak (R.A) replied, "I just asked RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam and He told me which hadith is correct." This is the nature of the link between Hazrat Lasani Paak(R.A) and the Master of the Universe Sayednah RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam. His major contribution is striving to weed-out the za'ef Ahadis.

Lasani Paak (R.A) used to open Quran-e-Kareem with his eyes closed and would start his lecture from the very page and Juzz of Holy Quran that would open. Based on the theme of that section he would answer questions and clear misconceptions of people. Acting upon the sanctified words of our sacred mother Sayadiah Ayesha Sadiqa(R.A) that the entire Holy Quran is nothing but praise of RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam; he would link each and every verse of Holy Quran to the glory, grandeur and dignity of RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam. Muslim scholars round the whole Muslim world admire Qibla-e Aalim for this speciality of him.

Because of being in true and deep love of RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam Hazrat Lasani Sahib (R.A) was blessed with great spiritual authority .Countless of his miracles can be narrated but the most important of them all is that none on earth ever witnessed Qibla-e-Aalam doing even a single minor action that was in contrary to the blessed Shariah of Rasool Allah (SAWW). Qibla-e-Aalam always remained surrounded by visitors, his mureedein, religious scholars and the lovers of RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam but each single of them bears the witness that Qibla-e-Aalam surrendered his own self totally for the will of Allah Almighty and the Holy commandments of RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam. He is unanimously accepted as the torchbearer of holy Shariah of RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam.

The Miracles of Hazrat Lasani Sahib (R.A) are countless. Once a man travelled from Pakistan to England by road, as he approached the Middle East, heavy rain and heavy winds came. He struggled hard to drive and feared the worst which was death. Finding himself totally helpless among the mountains, he called upon his Sheikh Hazrat Lasani Sahib (R.A), as a result of which Alhumbdulilah he survived from the storm. He went Pakistan, reached Eidgah Sharif and sat at the door waiting to be called .As he was called in, Lasani Sahib (R.A) without any prior information from the man said "Oh Janab what happened to you at the mountains?" The man was surprised that how Qibla-e-Aalim knew everything which he faced. The man narrates that his eyes were full of tears on realizing the love, concern and the strong spiritual connection of his beloved Murshid Hazrat Lasani Sahib (R.A) with him.

Once an old man met me in England and told me something really amazing. He said that he knew Qibla-e-Aalm Lasani Paak (R.A) possessed modern higher education of that time. But one day when he looked at the handwriting of Qibla-e-Alam in some of the letters, he could not witness the reflection of it there. He was shocked at this and kept thinking why Lasani Paak (R.A) wrote in such a way? Months past, the same man read a local newspaper in which he saw a photocopy letter of RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam. When he matched, he realized that the handwriting of Qibla-e-Alam Lasani Sahib (R.A) exactly matched the handwriting of Rassol Allah (SAWW). That was where he got his answer of why Qibla-e-Aalm adopted this pattern of writing. In fact, Lasani Sahib (R.A) tried to follow every aspect of RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam.

Once in Madinah Paak an Arab approached Lasani Sahib and asked him…"I wish to ask you a question regarding the Roza Paak of RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam." Lasani Sahib replied, "Bismillah." The man said Hadith says,"do not treat the Prophet's Moqam as a statue", what do you say of this? Lasani Sahib replied."Oh Brother the reason why RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam said this was just to inform the whole Ummah that statues are dead and have no value and when you visit RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam he is indeed Alive.

These days People perform Chilleh (seclusions) for 40 days. Lasani Sahib went to Madinah Paak and was accepted by RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam as soon as he reached and said:

"Oh king of my soul accept my presence here"

It was solely out of profound love for RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam that Hazrat Lasani Sahib (R.A) visited Madinah tul Manawarah countless times. The crux of teachings of Hazrat Lasani Sahib (R.A) is Madinah Paak ,Madinah Paak and only Madinah Paak! His message remains that only Madinah Paak is the centre for every good and that we should return towards our centre. We should love RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Sallam profoundly and view each single matter of our lives in the perspective of this purified love.

Alhamdulillah, Eidgah Shareef is strongly intact with the same message and working for the same mission even today.

She replied you are too young to pray Salah is not compulsory upon you yet, when you are older you could pray. At that tender age all they desired and love was the religion of Rasoolulah (Salal lah aley hi wasalam).

They used to say to there friends at school do not waste your time in life but only worship Allah.

At a young age they learnt Hadith: Mishkat Sharif, Ahya il ulum, Masnavi Sharif, and Fiqh, and other Kutb of hadith and tafseer. The knowledge of Bawajee Sahib (Rahmat ullah Aley) was immense.

They took Bayyah with Baba Fakeer Muhammad (Rahmat ullah Aley) at the age of 25. Baba Faqir Muhammad became an Aashiq of his Maureed Bawajee Sahib (Rahmat ullah Aley). Bawajee Sahib (Rahmat ullah Aley) loved there Shaykh so much that whatever they brought they presented to the Shaykh first before his own family. Within a short time both Maureed and Shaykh could not live without each other. They became so close that Baba Fakeer Muhammad (Rahmat ullah Aley) treated them like there own son and gave them Khilafat. Bawajee Sahib (Rahmat ullah Aley)'s Shaykh said "Whatever order I got from Rasoolulah (Salal lah aley hi Wasalam) I am Fulfilling and I am passing over the Ammanah to you". Bawajee Sahib (Rahmat ullah Aley)'s Shaykh handed over the Sufi Cloak (juba) and the Imamah Sharif and other things. They advised Bawajee Sahib (Rahmat ullah Aley) the ruling of the Spiritual World.

They immediately made plans and set for Hajj. During the journey they had a fire in the ship, everyone was panicking with worry, Bawajee Sahib (Rahmat ullah Aley) said to everyone LISTEN forget the worldly things only remember Allah, after this advice Bawajee Sahib (Rahmat ullah Aley) went upstairs to pray voluntarily prayers.

You will be buried at that place and people will be benefiting up till the day of judgement. Whoever takes your hand in allegiance on the day of judgement my intersession will be compulsory upon that person.

Bawajee Sahib (Rahmat ullah Aley) (Rahmat ullah Aley) came back and told everyone that my King told me this, that you will be buried here, Ulama and big Scholars made comments against this saying, after the passing away of Bawajee Sahib (Rahmat ullah Aley) they realised what a Shaykh Bawajee Sahib (Rahmat ullah Aley) was.
