A montage of eight images depicting, from top to bottom, the World Trade Center towers burning, the collapsed section of the Pentagon, the impact explosion in the South Tower, a rescue worker standing in front of rubble of the collapsed towers, an excavator unearthing a smashed jet engine, three frames of video depicting American Airlines Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon

The Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent Almighty created
The world to live in peace and harmony, joy and plenty!. But alas!
Countries and people avaricious and belligerent on the basis
Of religion, borders, castes and creeds and strike at others! Miserable!

September Eleventh attacks a series of four coordinated terrorist
Attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda against the United States
On the morning of Tuesday, September Eleventh Two Thousand and One
Resulting in three thousand  short of three fatalities, over Twenty Five Thousand
Injuries, and substantial long-term health consequences, in addition to about
$Ten billion in infrastructure and property damages!  SINGLE DEADLIEST
Terrorist attack in human history and the single deadliest incident for firefighters
And law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with Three hundred
Forty Three and Seventy two killed.72 killed respectively.

Four passenger airliners which departed from airports in the northeastern United States
Bound for California were hijacked by nineteen al-Qaeda terrorists. Two of the planes,
American Airlines Flight Eleven and United Airlines Flight One hundred and Seventy Five
Crashed into the North and South towers,, of the World Trade Center complex in
Lower Manhattan. Within an hour and forty two minutes, both Hundred and
Ten-story towers collapsed. Debris and the resulting fires caused a partial or complete Collapse of all other buildings In the World Trade Center complex, including the forty seven-story World Trade Center tower,and significant damage to ten other large surrounding Structures. A third plane, American Airlines Flight Seventy Seven,  crashed into the Pentagon In Arlington County, Virginia, which led to a partial collapse in the west side
The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight ninety three was flown toward Washington, D.C.,
But crashed in Stonycreek Township, Pennsylvania, passengers thwarted hijackers!

Suspicion quickly fell onto al-Qaeda. The United States responded by launching the War on Terror Invading Afghanistan to depose the Taliban, which failed to comply with U.S. demands to Expel al-Qaeda From Afghanistan and extradite their leader Osama bin Laden. Many countries Strengthened their anti-Terrorism legislation and expanded the powers of law enforcement and Intelligence agencies to prevent Terrorist attacks. Although bin Laden initially denied any involvement, later he claimed responsibility for The attacks. Al-Qaeda and bin Laden cited U.S. support of Israel, the presence of U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia, and sanctions against Iraq as motives. After evading capture for almost a decade, bin Laden was Located in Pakistan In two thousand eleven and killed during a U.S. military raid.

Destruction of the World Trade Center and nearby infrastructure seriously harmed
The economy of New York City- had serious effect on global markets. Most unfortunate!
Time to end such attacks forever in any part of the Globe!

30th August MUHARAM DAY

Muharram 2020: Wishes, Messages, Quotes, Images, Facebook post & Whatsapp status

Muharram the first month of the Islamic year is great
Second holiest month after Ramadan month- a treat
Muharam not a festival but a month long fasting
Almost mourning over Immam Hussain’s valiant death.

On Ashura, Muhammad’s grandson, Imman Hussain,
Died fighting in the Battle of Karbala almost fourteen
Centuries ago naturally a sad event mourned by all
Fasting , praying and mourning the day is spent all over.

Day differs among Shias and Sunnis in principle
All pious and devoted Muslims Allah’s disciples
And of course on the sighting of the moon in the month
But a day sacred and holy all observing with faith.

NAGORE SHAHUL HAMEED IS*42

IS*42 Indian Saint 42.

 

The Nagore Dargha Sheriff Mosque In George Town In Penang Island ...

In the Ramzan month just born, this week’s Envius Thoughts Sunday Story carries the life sketch of one of our noble Sufi Saints and I am sure our esteemed viewers from more than two hundred and ten countries in the world will enjoy this post and get some useful  and valuable inputs on an Indian Saint.

My N in my name stands for NAGAPATTINAM-and my family name is also that! NAGAPATTINAM VISWANATHAN SUBBARAMAN is my full name!

My home town is Thanjavur and Nagore is hardly 80 kilometers from my home. Officially also I had to visit Nagapatnam  district of which Nagore is a part. There is a NAGAUR  near Bikaner, Rajasthan where I spent a couple of years. Hence today’s Sunday story is special for me!

Shahul Hamid  is a mystic saint, Islamic preacher in Tamil Nadu and a 13th generation descendant of the renowned Sufi saint, Muhiyudin Abd al-Qadir al-Jalani. His tomb is located in the eastern coast of Bay of Bengal at Nagore, Tamil Nadu, India.

Early life

Shahul Hamid Badusha Kaadiri was born to Syed Hassan Kuthos Baba Kaadiri and Bibi Fathima at Manickpoor, in Pratapgarh district of Uttar Pradesh. He had his Islamic education at Gwalior under the guidance of Mohammad Ghouse. He left on pilgrimage to Mecca and then moved to Maldives, Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadu with his spiritual team. He led a simple and pious life, but believed to have performed lot of miracles giving him the name Nagore Andavar(meaning Sufi of Nagore). He was also called Meera Saheb.

History

Shahul Hamid Badusha Kaadiri cured King Achutappa Nayak(1529–1542 A.D.), a Hindu ruler of Thanjavur of his physical affliction believed to be caused by a sorcery. Shahul Hamid found a pigeon struck with pins in the palace attic to be the cause of the misery. He removed the pins from the pigeon resulting in the king’s health improvement. The ruler was satisfied and in return donated 200 acres of land to the entourage. In remembrance of the event, the practice of setting pigeons free is continued by worshippers. In the last quarter of 18th century, when the conflict between European powers, the nawab, the Maratha kings and Tipu Sultan of Mysore all came in focus of Thanjavur domain, the dargah was in focus for this strategic rivalry.

Architecture of Nagore Durgah

The tallest minaret of the dargah

It is believed that 60 percent of the shrines were built by Hindus Pratap Singh (1739–1763 A.D.), the Hindu Maratha ruler of Thanjavur, built the one of the five and tallest minaret (periya manara) with a height of 131 feet. This minaret is located on the west face just outside the main darwaza. This was erected 195 years after Shahul’s era. As a mark of respect people also venerate the sandals of the saint which are preserved in the shrine. The central part of the dargah is the tomb of the saint, Shahul Hamid, who is a direct descendant of Mohammed, through his grandson Hassan, through Abdel Khader Gilani, Sultanul Awliya, and approached through seven thresholds (four made of silver and three of gold). The saint also known as “Ganj e Sawai” meaning the doorway of one and a quarter. Whosoever asks will be bestowed with plenty “Barakah” as per the custom of giving a little more. Since the saint was celibate he is offered a “Sehra”, and not the customary chadar of flowers as at other dargahs. He was approached by a childless couple who were told they would be blessed with children but the first offspring would he his, meaning would be presented to him to adopt. There is a shrine for Shahul’s adopted son Yusuf and wife Ceytu Sultan (Sayid Sultan) Bibi. The doors of the shrines are open only during early morning and evening. Currently there are approximately 1500 male descendants, who are called Mujawars. There is a hereditary Khalifa, from among the descendants of the saint Yusuf (the adopted son, who is a saint in his own right). He is recognized as the first hereditary khalifa, the first born of the first born. This khalifa performs all the official religious duties. The work of administration and maintenance is the responsibility of a committee who operate under a scheme decreed by the Madras High Court.

There is big tank within the precincts, called “Shifa gunta”, and its waters are held sacred. Anyone bathing therein is cured of many maladies.  In the Nakaiyanthathi, the Tamil devotional poems, there is a mention about the tank as a haven of sweetness and comfort bedecked with the auspicious lotus.

There are other shrines built in his honour in Penang (Malaysia) and Singapore.The Singapore dargah has been built during 1827 and 1830 A.D. and has been declared a national monument. The above shrines along with the Masjid Jame at Chulia in Singapore and the Keramat Data Koya in Penang are influenced by the style of Nagore Durgah.]

Festivals

Kanduri festival is a 14‑day event celebrated for the annual urs(anniversary) of the saint. The urs is celebrated in commemoration of the anniversary of the saint’s death, and pilgrims participate in the rituals and rites. The word kanduri is derived from Persian word for table cloth. The festival is also called Qadir Wali Ke Fande festival. A saffron flag carrying ceremony is also observed when the flag is carried in procession from the devotee’s house after a procession in streets and hoisted on a tree known as Fande ka Fahad. The Islamic rites include the recitation of Quaranic verses and observance of Fatiha ritual. The main attraction of the festival is the presence of Fakhir Jamas(mendicant priests) and the disciples of the saint who witness the festival. On the 9th day of Jamathul Akhir month, at 10 p.m., one of the disciples (called pir) is chosen for the spiritual exercise of offering prayers to the saint. The pir throws lemons at the end of the prayers on the devotees, which is believed to provide miraculous relief to worldly sorrows. The festival is also seen as a sacred exchange between Hindus and Muslims expressing solidarity of mixed faith in the region. In the evening of the ninth day of Akhir month, the chariot containing sandal paste is pulled by the pilgrims and devotees accompanied by banging of instruments across the streets of Nagore. The sandal paste is received by the saint’s descendants and used to anoint the on the Rowla Sharif of the saint by the spiritual successor (Khalifa) of the dargaha.

Worship and Rituals

Dargah is a commonplace of veneration of devotees of various religious faiths. Muslims believe that the saint is one who is close to God, hence they seek assistance either asking God through this holy saint’s closeness that he has to God, or, ask the saint himself based on the powers that God has bestowed upon the saint, due to his closeness and acts of worships he has done in his lifetime. The reason being is that Muslims believe that a soul doesn’t cease to exist after death, but instead it transcends to the next realm. A realm where the soul is more powerful, as it is no more bound to the physical needs and requirement such as hunger, thirst and tiredness. This isn’t an act that ascribes a partner to God (commonly known as Shirk), as the fundamental belief is that all powers are from the one and only, the most powerful God.

Other worship practices that can be found there, but not necessarily affiliated to Islam are offering flags and lighting lamps of ghee at the saint’s tomb. Devotees shave their heads near the tank and offer tin or silver-plated facsimiles of body parts, houses, sailboats matching their material needs.

With this we end this Sunday special story and we shall meet tomorrow as usual. Till then BYE!

MEELADI NABI -10th November

Maulidur Rasul (8413657269).jpg

India that is Bharat our holy Motherland is secular by principle and practice. Constitutionally assures freedom of religion and religious practices to all citizens- great INDIANS- Though people belong to different religions in this multi religious society , all have the holy right to observe any festival-social, religious, personal without any let or hindrance. Noble indeed is India and noble are the Indians- Indians first and Indians last!

Today is a holy day for our Muslim friends. This year tenth November today is MILAD UN NABI and naturally forms the theme for this week’s Sunday story in ENVIUS THOUGHTS.

Muslims in India observe Milad unNabi, which commemorates the Prophet Muhammad’s birthday. Milad unNabi is also known as Nabi Day, Mawlid, Mohammad’s Birthday or the Prophet’s Birthday. MILAD is MY LORD!!

Mawlid or Mawlid al-Nabi al-Sharifi- It is the observance of the birthday of Islamic prophet Muhammad which is commemorated in Rabi’ al-awwal, the third month in the Islamic calendar. 12th Rabi’ al-awwal is the accepted date among most of the Sunni scholars, while Shi’a scholars regard 17th Rabi’ al-awwal as the accepted date.

The history of this celebration goes back to the early days of Islam when some of the Tabi‘un began to hold sessions in which poetry and songs composed to honour Muhammad were recited and sung to the audience.. The Ottomans declared it an official holiday in 1588, known as Mevlid andil. Most denominations of Islam approve of the commemoration of Muhammad’s birthday;

Let us invoke the grace and blessings of Allah for world peace and harmony, plenty and prosperity, health and happiness.

With this we end this Sunday story and we shall meet tomorrow morning as usual. Till then GOOD BYE!

Allahu Akbar
Ashhadu la ilaha illallah
Asahadunna Mohammadu Rasulillahi
Hayya alassala
Lailaha- illallah!

Get up my brother, it’s Ramzan time
Call has come – rush to our shrines
Drink the nectar, pre-dawn porridge
And fast till the Sun is seen in the western ridge!

Sing in praise of Allah sure five times
Spare one fifth of what you earn
For those who suffer hard all times
Make them happy with what you can!

Polygamy surely not a ban
Without which happily live I can
Sunflower plant holds only one
Never a second flower born in its stem!

Allahu Akbar
Allah is undoubtedly great!

Asahadunna la ilaha illallah
To me Allah and Allah alone is God!
Asha ha duanna Mohammadu Rasulillahi
Prophet Mohammed last messenger of Allah!

Hayya lassalla
Come rush to namaz
Hayya alfalah
Get deliverance from the pain of Hell!
La ilaha illallah
Allah is holy and great!

Day is gone and time for namaz
Call is heard from the holy tower
Allahu Akbar
What a great mystic experience
Godly light from sacred Mecca
Heavenly light from holy Bethlehem
Divine light from hallowed Himalayas
All flash through mind’s layers!

Allah, Christ and Maheshwara
Blessing me fine to reach the Goal
Goal when reached redeems the soul
Through love and piety, peace and poise
Compassion and universal brotherhood all to rejoice!

Hayya alal falah
Get me the deliverance from the pains of hell!
Bismillah hirrahman nirrahim
Most merciful and benevolent Allah!
