Tehreek Dawat e Faqr
Sultan ul Ashiqeen Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman has founded Tehreek Dawat-e-Faqr to spread the teachings of Faqr. Its objective is mainly to invite Muslims towards purity of soul in order to strengthen their relation with Allah. So as to improve their lives in both the worlds. Presently, this Tehreek is propagating message of Faqr through written literature, speeches, electronic media and verbal preaching to common people. This website is also the continuation of propagation.
Importance and Need of Tehreek Dawat e Faqr
Fact of matter is that in present world it has become more important to join path of Faqr than ever. Because the curses of greed, malice, dissolute, chaos etc. have captured the whole Muslim society. Since we have deviated from right path that leads to Allah, Allah’s will is also not in our favour. Religious scholars are dividing Muslim society in various sections on basis of differences in beliefs and ways of physical prayers. Though, much knowledge is being spread about the outward aspect of religion. But there aren’t any efforts to get spiritual knowledge of gnosis, recognition and closeness of Allah. Hence, everyone is oblivious of the true soul of religion .The results are evident in the form of downfall of Muslims all over the world.
Tehreek Dawat-e-Faqr is based on Allah’s command
وَلۡتَکُنۡ مِّنۡکُمۡ اُمَّۃٌ یَّدۡعُوۡنَ اِلَی الۡخَیۡرِ وَ یَاۡمُرُوۡنَ بِالۡمَعۡرُوۡفِ وَ یَنۡہَوۡنَ عَنِ الۡمُنۡکَرِ ؕ وَ اُولٰٓئِکَ ہُمُ الۡمُفۡلِحُوۡنَ۔
Meaning: And from amongst you there must be a group who would invite mankind towards recognition and closeness of Allah. They would bid righteousness and forbid evil. And (only) they are the successful ones. (Aal-e-Imran 104)
In this verse معروف means to recognize and familiarize someone. And “ یَاۡمُرُوۡنَ بِالۡمَعۡرُوۡفِ ” means to invite or advise others to have knowledge of recognition of Allah. Hence, according to this verse it is obligatory upon every true Muslim to bid this righteous path and forbid evil. Therefore every member of Tehreek Dawat-e-Faqr is performing the same obligation.
Righteous path to Allah’s gnosis which leads away from evil is the path of ‘Faqr’. No doubt! It is the only way for correction and rectification of the Muslims. We are disgraced in the world only because of diverting away from this path. As the poet of East Allama Iqbal says:
کیا گیا ہے غلامی میں مبتلا تجھ کو
کہ تجھ سے ہو نہ سکی فقر کی نگہبانی
یہ فقر مردِ مسلمان نے کھو دیا جب سے
رہی نہ دولت سلمانیؓ و سلیمانیؑ
Meaning: O Muslims! Other nations have subdued you only because you could not guard the treasure of Faqr. When Muslims lost this treasure, resultantly they lost their status near Allah. Eventually their worldly power and respect declined as well.
Faqr is Inevitable for Renaissance of Muslims
Since Faqr leads to closeness of Allah, it is the source of inward and outward betterment of Muslims. Hence, it is the only way of their progress and renaissance in the world and success in hereafter. Iqbal advises Muslims to regain this treasure which is the true legacy of our Holy Prophet.
ہمت ہو اگر تو ڈھونڈ وہ فقر
جس فقر کی اصل ہے حجازی
اس فقر سے آدمی میں پیدا
اللہ کی شان بے نیازی
مومن کی اسی میں ہے امیری
اللہ سے مانگ یہ فقیری
Explanation: You must dare to find the true Faqr which actually originated from pure soil of Hijaz (Madina). Only that Faqr can free a person from clutches of Satan and worldly desires. Consequently, developing within him the quality of indifference to desires, which is the attribute of Allah. So, beg Allah to bestow this ‘Faqr’ upon you, as the glory of a true Muslim lies only in Faqr.
