In the eyes of Mashaikh & Rulers

 

The respect and reverence given to Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra)  by the greatest other Mashaikh and Awliya has no parallel in the subcontinent. There is a famous saying that ‘Only eminent personalities can truly recognise other eminent personalities’ and this is why that all the great Mashaikh and Awliya of the time bowed their heads in respect in front of Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) and rushed to kiss their hands and feet. 

When Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) visited Brailly Shareef, the welcome given to him by Mufti-e-Azzam e Hind Maulana Mustafa Raza Khan Noori (the Beloved son of Ala Hadhrat Imaam Ahmed Raza Khan Brailly) is beyond describable.  Mufti e Azzam e Hind, alongside thousands of his Mureeds covered the several mile distance between the railway station to the Khanqah so they could catch a glimpse of the Young Prince of Hazoor Syedna Ghaus e Azzam(ra).  The crowd was so enthuastic excited about the visit that they picked up the car that Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) was travelling on their shoulders and carried it to their destination. Till this day, no dignitary has had such a reception that Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) received in Brailly Shareef.

During the duration of the three days that Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) stayed in Brailly Shareef, Mufti-e-Azzam e Hind(ra) refused to wear his sandals out of his respect and remained barefooted. Mufti e Azzam e Hind(ra) personally served as a Khadim of Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) and would pour the water jug with their own very hands so that Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) could perform wuzu. Mufti e Azzam e Hind(ra) also made several of his family members baith on the hands of Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) including Mufti Akhtar Raza Khan Sahib.

Another reception was organised in Faisalabad by Muhadith e Azzam e Pakistan Maulana Sardar Ahmad Qadri (ra). Maulana Sardar Ahmad Qadri(ra) covered the route from the railway station to his Madrassa (Jamia Rizvia) with rolls of white cloth so the blessed car that Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) was travelling in would drive ontop of this white cloth. The students of Maulana Sardar Ahmad Qadri(ra) report that there was a piece of area that was left uncovered; when Maulana Sardar Ahmad Qadri(ra) saw this, he immediately kneeled down and clean this area with his own Beard!

During the mehfil, Muhadith e Azzam e Pakistan Maulana Sardar Ahmad Qadri(ra) set-up a special stage. He made a three floor stage. Maulana Sardar Ahmad Qadri(ra) sat directly underneath the feet of Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) and then he made his own sons sit underneath his feet. This left all those who witnessed this in tears seeing the love, respect and reverence given by such a great personality (Muhadith e Azzam e Pakistan) to Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra).

Similiary, Qutb e Madinah Maulana Muhammad Ziauddin Razavi Qadri Madani ( Khalifah of Ala Hadhrat ra) not only spent time in the service of the Blessed Darbar of Hazoor Syedna Ghous e Azzam(ra) but also spent years as a personal servant (Khadim) of the blessed family of Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) in Baghdad Shareef. Maulana Muhammad Ali Jauhar and Maulana Shokath Ali Jauhar(ra) also were Mureed of the blessed father of Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) ; His Holliness, Naqeeb ul Ashraaf Shaykh ul Mashaikh Syedna Mahmood Hussamuddin Al-Gillani Al-Baghdadi (ra).

The respect and reverence given to Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) was not limited to within the Ahl-e-Sunnat but also from other schools of thought. The great Deobandi alims Maulana Muhammad Yusuf Binori and Mufti Muhammad Shafi(Karachi) were both very frequent in the gatherings of Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra). When the famous Ahl-e-Hadith Scholor Maulana Saeed Dawood Ghaznavi met Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) in the holy city of Makkah Sharif, he quickly tried to pick up the holy sandals of Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) out of respect.
