Naqshbandi order is refered to the sufi order or path revealed by Allah (SWT) to the great shaikh of 8th century Hijrah shaikh Baha’uddin Naqshband Bukhari, who lived in Bukhara (currently Uzbekistan) and this order was named upon his title “Naqshband”.
Mujaddidi order is named after the great shaikh of 11th century Hijrah, Shaikh Ahmed Faruqi Sirhindi, who lived in Sirhind, Indian Punjab. He was called “Mujaddid Alf Thani”, the reviver of the second millenium.
According to the Ahadith of our beloved Prophet (peace be upon him), this Ummah is divided mainly in two parts, the First (Awwal) and the Last (Akhir). As one hadith says: My Ummah is like rain, its not known whether the first part of it is better and greater, or the last one.
Mujaddid Alf Thani said the Akhir (Last) part of this Ummah starts when one thousand years have passed to the passing-away of our beloved Prophet from this world. In early Ummah’s, there used to come an Ulul-Azm prophet (a great prophet) who brought a new Sharia and revived the humanity. Since our beloved Prophet is the last one, after one thousand years there had to come some one who was heavily gifted by Allah to revive this whole Ummah, the Shariah, the Tasawwuf and to separate the Bida’ah from Din.
So shaikh Ahmed Sirhindi Mujaddid Alif Sani was sent as a great Waliullah (saint) and was given many rewards from Allah. One is that he is Mujaddid Alif Sani, the revivor of the second millenium. Second is that he was rewarded by the Title of “Qayyum”, the one with whose help the universe and the whole world is maintained and stable.
Above is the basic information about the shaikhs of Naqshbandi Mujaddidi Order. My purpose is to show you the glories and greatness of this order. Here are the points:
Since Mujaddid Alef Sani is the greatest Waliullah of the second millenium, every coming waliullah in this Ummah, wherever he lived or whatever tariqa or order he belongs to, is under the Wilayat of Shaikh Ahmed. Every single person in this second millenium Hijrah, who receives Fuyooz (single: Faiz) or spiritual bounties, has to receive through him. He is the transmitter of Faiz to this whole Ummah in this last millenium.
Hazrat Mujaddid had Ijazat (perfection) in all the tariqah’s. He was given Khilafah from Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani directly, after four centuries. Not only spiritually, but also physically. Shaikh Jilani had given the Khirqa (gown) of Khilafah to his son, and had asked to transmit it down the line so that it reached Shaikh Ahmed Faruqi by a qadiri shaikh of his time Shaikh Sikandar Kethali.
Hazrat Mujaddid was given complete bounties and fuyoozat of all the tariqahs as he has mentioned in his letters. No other shaikh of this time has got so much fuyoozat of any tariqa. All the founders of tariqahs asked him to prevail and preach their tariqa. But then our beloved Prophet came, and asked him to preach the Naqshbandi order as it belongs to the most beloved of the Prophet’s companions, Sayyadna Abu Bakr Siddiq. So Shaikh Mujaddid preached this order.
The Naqshbandi order was revived by Shaikh Ahmed and was later named Naqshbandi Mujaddidi order. This contains all the bounties of the great founders of four tariqahs. This order has direct fuyoozat from Rasullalah (SAW) and his beloved companion Siddiq-e-Akbar. So this is the best tariqa available today to adopt.
I don’t want to say other tariqas in existence are not valid. They are all good and highly appreciable. But the matter is that this tariqa is related to the greatest companion of the holy Prophet. Waliullah’s say this tariqa has such fazeelat over others, as had Sayyadna Abu Bakr over other Sahaba.
Going back, this tariqa leads to the best of humans after prophets. Going down, it has been predicted by Shaikh Mujaddid and other waliullah’s, this tariqa will descend to Imam Mehdi, who will teach people the Zikr of this tariqa. He is the final shaikh of this tariqa, as has been said by Shaikh Parsa, the khalifa of Hazrat Baha’din Naqshband.
Today is the End of Times. This is second and last millenium and has to end with Qiyamah. This is the worst time of all in this Ummah. It is utmost necessary to take the help of some Shaikh to save one’s Iman and Din. Without the help of some Kamil Shaikh it is almost impossible to save Iman.
Therefore, I would advice people who dont’ have shaikh in sulook, that look for some who is related to Naqshbandi Mujaddidi order. There are many, and you may find a mujaddidi shaikh in any part of the world. Although other tariqas are all good, they are very hard to adopt. Naqshbandi Mujaddidi order is the easiest and fastest to reach the bounties of Allah. Moreover, to find a shiakh of other tariqas is extremely difficult, as very few are existing. Most of them are even not Kamil, so find a Shaikh-e-Kamil and save your Iman today.
