Written by: Imam Fakhruddin Owaisi

As-Salam Alaykum,

Subhan-Allah, the Haram al-Sharif of al-Aqsa is a Jannah of peace, tranquility and ruhaniyyah, despite the Jahannum that the Israelis have created around it. It is from the most spiritual places in the world.

I had the honor of making the Jum'ah Salah in the Aqsa and the holy Wazifah under the blessed Rock (Sakhrah), from where our Prophet (SAW) went on Mi'raj!

I also visited the Haram al-Ibrahimi where our father Abraham is buried, the birthplace of al-Masih Esa Ibn-Maryam (AS) in Bethlehem and the Masjid of Sayyidina Umar ibn al-Khattab (RA) there as well.

One must salute the Palestinian people for their Sabr and Resistance against a most vicious and brutal enemy. Allah yarzuqhum al-Nasr ala man Aa'daahum, wa-'s-Sabr ala Balwaahum. Amin.

I personally view the catastrophe of Falastin (Palestine) in deeper spiritual terms.

Jerusalem represents the Heart of the Ummah, for me.

The Zionist Yahud represent the Nafs al-Ammarah, Hubb al-Dunya, and Shahawat.

Therefore, the physical control of the Yahud over Jerusalem is actually a symbolic reflection of the spiritual control of the Nafs al-Ammarah over the Qulub of the Ummah.

The Zahir and the Batin cannot be separated. Everything that is happening in the Zahir is a reflection of something going on in the Batin al-Amr.

Because the nafs, hubb al-dunya, Asabiyyah Jahiliyyah, Zulm and Fasad have taken over our hearts in such a way as never before, therefore the Zionist Occupiers (who are the personification of all of that) have taken our al-Quds, which is our physical heart.

The real solution therefore, is not ranting and raving and political plotting, but the overall Tazkiyah of the Qalb of this wounded Ummah.

That is what our Master, Shaykhuna al-Hassan and all other Awliya-Allah and true Ulama are busy with, as they know this secret. Once our hearts return to Allah, Jerusalem will also return to Islam. At this moment, we don't even deserve it. 

Jerusalem needs men with purified hearts such as Sayyidna Umar (RA), not dunya-loving politicians who are slaves of their lower selves and miles away from the Hal and Qal of Sayyidina Muhammad (SAW).

Last year, when the Zionists wanted to destroy the Aqsa, a noble Muqaddam and Sharif lady from the Tariqah saw Mawlana Rasul-Allah (SAW) and all the Anbiya guarding the Aqsa in a circle.

She asked him if the Aqsa would ever be destroyed?

He replied:

"At the moment, we Prophets are protecting it, but Allah can do whatever He wants".

The Jihad will continue around Bayt al-Maqdis till the Day of Judgment, as the authentic Hadith states.

Sayr al-Qalb is the last Diwan of Shaykh Ibrahim (RA). In it he writes of his journey to al-Quds and al-Khalil:

Wa Arrajtu li'l-Quds ish-Sharifi wa ba'dahu

Saraytu li-Barham al-Khalili Muwaffaqa

Alayka Aya Barhamu ba'da Muhammadin

Salatun wa Taslimun yazidani Rawnaqa


And I traveled to al-Quds al-Sharif and after that…

I journeyed to the Prophet Ibrahim al-Khalil, with all success!

Upon you Oh Ibrahim…after Muhammad...

Be all peace and greetings…ever-increasing in their Light

Then cursing the evil Zionist occupiers and praying for their destruction and the purification of Jerusalem from them, he writes:

Alayka Salat Ullahi thumma Salamuhu

Wa Tatrudu Ushkul al-La'ini min al-Qudsi

Alayka Salat Ullahi thumma Salamuhu

Wa Tasta'sila al-Khubth al-Yahudi min al-Ussi

Wa Tuhlika Dajjal al-Yahudi wa Tuhlikan

Ibanan wa Dayanan fayakmulu li-Unsi


May the Peace and Salutations of Allah be upon you O Prophet

And may you chase away the accursed ones (Zionists) from Jerusalem

May the Peace and Salutations of Allah be upon you O Prophet

And may you root out the wicked ones of the Yahud from their bases!

And may you destroy the Dajjal of the Yahud and destroy…

Eban and Dayan, so that my delight be complete!

(Indeed, the Zionist terrorists, Eban and Dayan were all destroyed)

And he also wrote:

Sa'altu Ilahi an Yudhilla bi-Sur'atin

Isabati Isra'ila Ahli-Ghaba'i

Wa Tahhir lana 'l-Quds al-Sharifa wa Ahlikan

Ibanan wa Dayanan Riqaba Ima'i

Laqada Harabu Isa wa Yahya wa Muhmmadan

Fahab li-Yahud al-Qudsi Kulla Bala'i

Wa Harrir lana Sina bi-Musa wa Muhammadin

Wa Isa wa Ibrahima Ahli Ala'i

Wa Takhfida Johnsona Bi-Jahi Muhammadin

Wa Sirr alladhi qad Ja'a bi-Ghari Hira'i


I asked my Lord to Humiliate very soon…

The wicked bunch of the Israelis, the foolish ones!

And purify for us al-Quds al-Sharif

And destroy (Israeli Generals) Eban and Dayan, the Lowlifes!

Indeed they have fought the prophets Jesus, John and Muhammad (SAW)

So afflict the Zionists of Jerusalem with every hardship (O Allah)

And liberate for us (Mount) Sinai for the Sake of Moses and Muhammad (SAW)

And Isa and Ibrahim, the men of Lofty Status

And humiliate Johnson for the Honor of Muhammad (SAW)!!!

Indeed, Sinai was liberated shortly after the Dua of Shaykh Ibrahim (RA) and Johnson was also humiliated with scandals.

Likewise, we are sure that the rest of Shaykh Ibrahim's Duas will also be fulfilled. Amin

One should also read the Sahib al-Faydah's letter to President Jamal Nasser after the defeat of the (disunited and dunya-loving) Arab armies in 1967 and the loss of al-Quds al-Sharif. It is found in the collection of his letters entitled Jahawir al-Rasa'il.

After the Zionist burning of the Masjid al-Aqsa in 1969, Shaykh Ibrahim (RA) also wrote a letter to all Muslims asking then to boycott Israel and cut off all ties with it completely. This letter is also found in the Jawahir al-Rasa'il.

I attach here photos of me in front of the Dome of the Rock and in the al-Haram al-Sharif with Sidi Shaykh Ya'qub Qirrish, from the great Ulama of the Aqsa and Shaykh of the Shadhiliyyah in al-Quds. I had the honor of reciting the Isra wa-'l-Mi'raj Chapter of the Burdah in his Majlis inside the Aqsa after the Jum'ah Prayer!

Written by: Imam Fakhruddin Owaisi al-Tijani
As-Salam Alaykum Wa Rahmat-Allah,

We wish a Hajj Maqbul to all Hujjaj!

May Allah accept your pilgrimage to His Sanctuary and your Ziyarah to the Neighborhood of the Prophet (saw), and grant us all the same honor. Amin,
We share here some of Shaykh-al-Islam al-Haj Ibrahim Niasse (RA)'s amazing experiences during his first Hajj in 1937, as described in his Rihlah al-Hijaziyyah (Travelogue of his first Hajj)

The Sahib al-Faydah  (RA) described his inward experience of the Hajj thus:

تجردت عن ملبوسي اليوم محرما
تجرد  قلبي  عن  سواك  معظما


و إن طفت بالبيت المعظم قدره
إلهي فقلبي حول ذاتك  خيما


و سعيي بين الصخرتين مشاكل
لسعي مضى لي في الصفات تكرما


I removed my clothes today to adorn the Ihram
And my Heart removed all other than You, in honor of You

And indeed, when I circambulate around the Noble House (the Ka'bah)
O My Lord! My Heart has encamped around your Being


And my running between the two Mountains (Safa and Marwah)
Is complimentary to my (inward) running between your Attributes  (of Jalal and Jamal)

Upon looking at the blessed Ka'bah for the first time, Shaykh Ibrahim (RA) said:

اللهم إني نويت أن أتقرب إليك بالنظر إلى بيتك الحرام بالنية التي كان ينظر بها النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم

"O Allah! I intend to draw closer to You by looking at Your Sacred House with the same intention by which Your Prophet (SAW) used to look at it!".

The Shaykh (RA) also used to read his Divinely-Inspired Dua the Kanz al-Awliya in front of the Sacred Door of the Ka’bah. (I had the honor of doing the same during my last Umrah)

About the holy plains of Arafah the Shaykh (RA) wrote:

لبيك  تلبية  من  واصل  عرفه 
من كولخ منتهى الدنيا إلى عرفه

I pronounce  the Labbayk of a one who has Known and Arrived 
From Kaolack, the furthest point of the World to Arafah!

و الحمد في ذا و ذاك للإله  فما
للعبد مدخل في الأمر إن  عرفه

And all praise, in this and that, is for the Lord!
For the slave has no say in the matter, if he only knew!

A priceless voice of Sheikh Ibrahim Niass reciting the "talbiyah" while people around him were re-echoeing it during hajj season...
مقطع من صوت الغالي للشيخ الإسلام الحاج إبراهيم نياس يهتف التلبية والناس حوله يلبون في موسم الحج....

The Shaykh (RA) would also make this Dua when shaving the Hair of his head after the Pilgrimage:

اللهم هذه ناصيتي بيدك فاجعل لي بكل شعرة نوراً يوم القيامة و بارك لي في معيشتي
 و اغفر لي ذنبي و تقبل مني عملي

O Allah! This is my forehead in your Hands! So recompense me for every hair, a light on the Day of Judgment! Bless my livelihood, forgive my sin and accept my Actions!

As for the City of the Prophet (SAW), Madinah Munawwarah or Taybah (The Purified City), the Shaykh (RA) has written thousands of couplets in praise and yearning for it. More than 50% of his Diwan is about that. Here I just translate a few couplets from the Days of his Visit to Madinah Taybah:

يا طيبة المصطفى يا طيب رياك 
و الحسن  أجمعه يلقى من  محياك

علوت مكة ذات البيت إذ شرفت
بالبيت و البيت من طه فبشراك

مني  إليك  سلام  كلما  وردت 
بحجرة  المصطفى  أملاك  مولاك

O Taybah of the Chosen Prophet! How Sweet is your Fragrance!
Indeed, all beauty is encompassed in your Appearance!

You have surpassed Makkah, as Makkah is honored by the House (of God) 
And the House was ordained by Taha (SAW), so glad-tidings to you!

So accept Greetings from me to You
As long as the Angels of God roam around the Shrine of the Prophet (SAW)

Other than that, the Shaykh (RA) would also recite the Sirr al-Ziyarah prayer when would visit the Blessed Tomb of the Crown of Creation Sidina Rasul-Allah (SAW).

The Shaykh (RA) also writes:

"And among the signs of the acceptance of our Dua and fulfillment of all our desires was that whenever we would lift our hands for Dua, the rain would pour. This happened with the Abd al-faqir by the Ka'bah, by Arafah, and by Mina. And there were other matters which I cannot reveal".

The noble Caretaker of the Holy Ka'bah, Shaykh Abd-Allah al-Shaybi also gave Shaykh Ibrahim (RA) the rare permission to be alone inside the Holy Ka'bah with some of his special disciples!

It is also well-known that his Eminence the Emir of Kano, Sultan Abd-Allahi Bayero, who came from a Qadiriyyah family, prayed to meet the Qutb al-Ghawth of the Tijaniyyah in the precincts of the Blessed Ka'bah, and then immediately saw Shaykh Ibrahim (RA) in front of him. Thereafter, he took the Tariq al-Tijani from Shaykh Ibrahim (RA) in front of the Maqam Ibrahim and invited him to make his famed visit to Nigeria, where tens of thousands submitted to the Tariqah.

Many other important Tijanis also asked Shaykh Ibrahim (RA) to renew the Tariqah and Taqdim for them during his stay in the Holy Land. Among them were:

-Al-Sayyid Ali al-Tayyib, the great Idrisid Hassanid Sharif and Medinite Shaykh who spread the Tariqah in Indonesia and who was a descendant of the venerable Sidi al-Tayyib al-Sufyani (RA)

-Al-Sayyid Ali al-Kutbi, Host of the Tijanis in Makkah

-Al-Shaykh Abu'l-Qasim bin Ibrahim, Head of the Ulama of Sudan

-Al-Sayyid Muhammad al-Shinqiti, grandson of the great Mauritanian Tijani Master Sidi Muhammad al-Mukhtar al-Shinqiti (RA) who took from 40 of the disciples of Sayyidina Shaykh al-Tijani (RA). He also gave the Tariqah to the Sultans of Turkey, Egypt and Darfur. He died in Sudan.

Shaykh Ibrahim (RA) also mentioned that a person in Jeddah whom he recognized as the Khidr (A.S.) informed him that he is the Qutb of the Age.

He also mentions that a Moroccan Sharif from Fez greeted him at the corner of the Holy Ka'bah and told him that he was informed by one Meccan Saint that he would meet the Ghawth of the Age at the Corner of the Ka'bah during the Hajj this year, and because of the Ghawth's presence, everyone else's Hajj would be accepted. Shaykh Ibrahim (RA) asked the Sharif, "So who did you meet at the Corner of the Ka'bah?". The Sharif replied, "You"!

The Shaykh (RA) also mentions that in the holy plains of Mina, a Wali met him and told him:

أنت رجل ورثت مقام رجل ساكن في قرية فاس

 "You are a man who has inherited the Maqam of a Man from the town of Fez!"

In Makkah as well, he was also given the glad-tiding by the Moroccan Saint who migrated from Fez to Madinah, al-Sharif Ahmad al-Tibir (RA), that:

إني رأيتك تتولى جميع المشارب

"I have seen you take over all the Masharib (Methods and Understandings)."

All of this is taken from the Shaykh’s amazing Travelogue entitled al-Rihlah al-Hijaziyyah al-Ula in which he documents his first Hajj as well as his first Visit to Morocco. 

It is must read for anyone who wishes to know more about the early years of the Faydah.

What we have mentioned and translated is a tip of the iceberg. The Travelogue itself contains numerous Duas, Intentions and Actions for every point of the Hajj and Ziyarah, from leaving one’s home to entering again into one's home!

It also includes many of Shaykh Ibrahim’s experiences during this Amazing journey to Makkah, Madinah and Fas.

Of course, the Shaykh (RA) himself writes that what he did not mention in his work is far more than what he did:

و ما كتمناه مما لا أبوح به 
أضعاف أضعاف ما كنا كتبناه

And what I have concealed and cannot reveal 
Is multiple and multiple times more than what I wrote!

May Allah grant us all a Hajj-Mabrur and Ziyarah Maqbulah. Amen.
