Result of Enmity with Sultan-Ul Awliyaa Shaykh Muhammad Mohsin Munawar Yousafi Al Naqshbandi

As a Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, there was a time when Sayyidi Shaykh Muhammad Mohsin Munawar Yousafi had a business. Sayyidi Shaykh owned the largest fish farm in the entire Punjab province of Pakistan. The size of that farm which was spread over acres of land was so huge that the director of fisheries especially at that time had to come to inspect. These were the early days when Sayyidi Shaykh recently had taken Bayt (Pledge of Loyalty) with Huzoor Baba Ji Sarkar Hazrat Haji Muhammad Yousaf Ali Nagina (May Allah be Please with Him). Sayyidi Shaykh states that In those days, He suffered a great financial loss in the fish farm when a well-known trader called Billa, deceived Sayyidi Shaykh in the fish farm business.

As a result, business suffered such a huge loss that the fish farm was on the verge of closing down. As an opportunist, another man from the nearby village taking advantage of business crisis got the fish farm seized. However, Sayyidi Shaykh states that He suffered great mental disturbance and left all the matter to Allah Almighty. In addition, there was a Masjid built in the fish farm which Sayyidi Shaykh Muhammad Mohsin Munawar Yousafi had named  ‘Nagina Masjid’ in the remembrance of His Shaykh-e Tariqah, Hazrat Haji Muhammad Yousaf Ali Nagina (May Allah be please with Him). Hazrat Shaykh had built Nagina Masjid Himself within the fish farm premises. An iron rod was stuck out from somewhere in the Masjid due to which one day that person’s son, who taken part to get the fish farm seized went close to the naked iron rod. As soon as his son touched that rod, he received such an extreme electric shock that he died on the spot.

There is a wise saying of believers that whatever Allah Almighty wants to declare in front of people, public themselves start to talk about it. Similarly, the people who were present there when the incident occurred, when they saw that happening, they started proclaiming that the  man had got punishment for his depraved deed of playing a major role to get the fish farm seized.

The incident did not conclude here. In addition, the trader ‘Billa’ who deceived Sayyidi Shaykh from the beginning with the sole Intention to harm Sayyidi Shaykh’s Fish Farm, suffered such a heavy loss that he, who was once very stable financially and hence, was very rich became bankrupt in a very short span of time. He brought his family literally on roads because of his act against the fish farm. Sayyidi Shaykh refers to a seeing that after some time when this whole Incident occurred, He was once crossing the Ravi Bridge when at the toll plaza he saw that the once a millionaire Billa’s son was giving tickets to the people who were crossing the bridge.

According to Sayyidi Sultan-Ul Awliyaa Shaykh Muhammad Mohsin Munawar Yousafi, If a person commits a sin and seeks forgiveness then there is a chance for forgiveness from Allah ﷻ but If a person Is disrespectful and hurts Awlia Allah (Friends of Allah), thereupon, there is no chance for forgiveness for that person from Allah ﷻ.

With respect to the aforementioned, a Surah from the Holy Quran revealed the incident of when a disbeliever was disrespectful to Prophet (Peace be Upon Him).

تَبَّتْ يَدَا أَبِي لَهَبٍ وَتَبَّ

مَا أَغْنَىٰ عَنْهُ مَالُهُ وَمَا كَسَبَ

سَيَصْلَىٰ نَارًا ذَاتَ لَهَبٍ

وَامْرَأَتُهُ حَمَّالَةَ الْحَطَبِ

فِي جِيدِهَا حَبْلٌ مِّن مَّسَدٍ

– Holy Quran Chapter 111 (Surah Lahab)

Translation:

 May the hands of Abu Lahab perish, may he (himself) perish.

His wealth avails him not, neither what he had earned. 

Soon will he roast in a flaming fire,

And his wife, the bearer of the firewood,

Upon her neck a rope of twisted palm-fibre.

 

With reference to the incident towards which the Holy Quraanic Verses indicates,  we need to remember that Prophet (Peace be Upon Him) did not said anything and kept quiet but at this moment Allah Himself revealed/announced the punishment for Abu Lahab for being disrespectful to Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessing be upon Him). Furthermore, Allah Almighty did not only punished Abu Lahab but also his wife too who too, along with Abu Lahb was also involved in this filthy act.

In reflection to the above incident, It also proves that whosoever gets involved in an evil act of disrespecting or hurting the people who are the Beloved of Allah, they get direct punishment from Allah Himself. In addition, the people who get involved directly or indirectly in such devilish acts, also gets strong punishment from Allah Almighty in this world and the Hereafter.

As Awliyaa Allah from the Ummah of Prophet (Peace be Upon Him) are the Beloved of Allah. For this simple reason, Allah does not like any person to act distrustfully with the people whom He loves. May we remain under the blessings and on the footprints of Sayyidi Sultan Ul Awliyaa Shaykh Muhammad Mohsin Munawar Yousafi who teaches His lovers;  Adab (Respect), spreading the fragrance of Love and Service.
