Sufis


Ahl-i-Suffa, were the sahabas of veranda of Masjid-e-Nabavi who were praised for their self mortification and poverty by the Afzalul Ambiya Hazrat Mohammed (PBUH)
“Rejoice! For whoever of my community perseveres in the state in which ye are, and is satisfied with his condition, he shall be one of my comrades in Paradise”.
Ashab-e-Safa were the earliest Sufi in the Islam and the word Sufi has originated from Suffa, the veranda. 
Prophet Mohammed once said “ Ala fakhrun faqri wa faqra minni” – I am proud of Faqiri and Faqir is from me. The Sufis are the people who have taken the true intent of Islam forward and have spread the Message.
Ashab-e-Sufa spent their life in the company of Rasulallah (PBUH) and received the knowledge, safeguarded and propagated correct interpretation of Quran and Hadith to Tabaien and then the knowledge was propagated by Tabaien to Tab-e-Tabaien and then to Khulfa of various orders of Sufism.
Ilm-e-Haq is found in its purest form in the teachings and practices of these Sufi Saints of Islam. These are the Awliya Allah ,the friends of Almighty , in whose honor He says in Holy Quran ..
أَلَآ إِنَّ أَوْلِيَآءَ ٱللَّهِ لَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ
“Lo! verily the friends of Allah! no fear comes upon them, nor shall they grieve.”  -Quran-10:62
The hearts of the Awliya is the Arsh of Allah and the hearts of lovers of Awliya are the true seekers of Haq. This website has a single objective to disseminate the teachings and practices of Awliya Allah and help seekers reach nearness to Allah.
