Jumma Muraqaba – Praying for the Ummah
Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem
Allahuma Sali Ala Sayyidna Muhammad
The following is a translation of a muraqaba/vision experience of Shaykh Banaras Owaisi QS:
“ I was reading Salatul Jummah and I went into a state of Muraqabah and saw that I’m traveling towards Makkah and then I reach to the blessed Kabbah. There I performed Umrah and then was told that I should call the Adhan on the rooftop of the Holy Ka’ba. After calling adhan I begin travelling towards the blessed lands of Madinah. I saw my Master ﷺ, and I fell at his ﷺ feet and kiss his Blessed Hands. My Master ﷺ told me that he is going to show me the doors of Jannah. Upon reaching the gates my Master ﷺ goes inside and took me with him. Upon entering through the gates, I heard a voice and it says to me, “ask what you wish.” I prostrate to Allah Kareem, and I ask for the whole Muslim Ummah to be forgiven and allowed entry into this Blessed Jannah. I turn to my Master ﷺ and I ask how will all the humans of the earth be judged? I was then shown the world, and I see people emerging from graves; some people where even coming out from underneath houses and buildings. I saw mountains of the earth fall in front of my eyes to tiny pieces and people coming out from underneath them. I fell back in prostration to Allah Kareem and I hear a voice saying, “90% of the Muslim ummah will gain entry to jannah”
We, the Mureeds and Lovers of Shaykh Banaras Owaisi QS, are of no doubt in the Wilaya of Shaykh Banaras Owaisi QS. That some from the Ummah other than the Prophet SAW will intercede is well- know, as established in the hadith in Tirmidh, Ibn Majah, and al-Hakim:
“ Abu Abi al-Jada narrated that the Prophet ﷺ said, “More men will enter paradise through the intercession of one man than there are people in the tribe of Banu Tamim.” They asked him “Other than you?” He said, “Other than me,” and it was said Uways al-Qarani was meant.”
Our Shaykh is also ‘Owaisi’ and it fits that because he inherits from the Owaisi Fountain, he also bears this responsibility of intercession like Sayyidna Uwais al-Qarni RA. May Allah SWT keep us united under the Dome of His Awliya— of Shaykh Banaras Owaisi QS!
