SHEIKH IBRAHIM NIASS AND HIS HOLDING FAST UPON THE SUNNAH OF THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD [PBUH]:
A LECTURE DELIEVRED IN THE EDUCATIONAL WEEK(IN COMMEMORATION WITH THE BIRTHDAY OF MAULANA SHEIKH IBRAHIM NIASS) UNDER THE TOPIC:
{INNOCENCE OF HIS EMINENCE SHEIKHUL ISLAM IBRAHIM NIASS ABOUT THE FALSE AND SLANDEROUS CLAIMS THAT ARE ATTRIBUTED TO HIM}
WRITTEN BY: HIS EMINENCE DR. SHRIFF SHARIFF IBRAHIM SALEH AL-HUSSAINY, CHAIRMAN OF THE FATWA [ADVISORY] BODY AND THE ISLAMIC COUNCIL OF NIGERIA, MEMBER OF THE COUNCIL OF MUSLIM JURIES, MEMBER OF THE WORLD MUSLIM LEAGUE ADVISORY ROLES IN THE WORLD. AT THE CONFERENCE HALL OF THE UNIVERSITY OF UMAR YAR’ADUWA-KATSINA STATE, FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA
May 15th 2016.

Sheikh Ibrahim may Allah be pleased with him had put in practice an ideology based on the Qur’an and Sunnah completely. And Sheikh as well applied Islamic religious practices as Allah has commanded regarding prayer, fasting, [zakat] poor tax and [hajj] pilgrimage. And Sheikh Ibrahim had also applied the Islamic Sharia in his relations, whether it is in the field of trade, marriage or other issues, beginning from the commandments[wasayaa] to the end of it and sections on fiqh [Islamic jurisprudence].

Sheikh Ibrahim had applied the Sharia in its entirety in his life time, and the life time of his followers, so Allah raised up the status of Sheikh Ibrahim with holding fast on to the Islamic Sharia in both Qur’an and Sunnah. It is therefore incumbent upon his students to know that this was the approach of Sheikh Ibrahim.

And we will give one example, some people who allege that Sheikh Ibrahim had more than one wife, and that he had violated the rules of Allah’s Sharia in marriage, this is not true in the sense that he told one of his wives during his last illness[before he died]: “If the order of Allah happened and I departed to my Lord, return to your country and get married. She then said to him: To marry after you? He said to her: I am not a Prophet to stop you from getting married, but I am rather a student of Sheikh Tijjani may Allah be pleased with him.” And indeed this virtuous Sayyadah returned back to her native country after the demise of Sheikh Ibrahim may Allah be pleased with him. And she acted upon this advice and got married and had a baby for another man. This statement would not be issued even among his students, as well as to be issued by a man who has reached his status and yet, he did it.

So what is expected from his students from where they belong from all nooks and corner is for themselves to commit to these principles, and for them to tread on his ideology. And for them to distant themselves from bid’ah[innovation] and newly invented matters and for them to be role models and leaders for this religion. This is my advice for my brothers in Allah and lovers among the divine knowers of Allah and the students of Maulana Sheikh Ibrahim may Allah be pleased with him. And am not the only one who raises his voice with his advice, there is no doubt that lovers of Sheikh starting from all his children by blood and his children in spirit, wherever they happened to be this is their views and stand. And this is their sincerity for Sheikh Ibrahim.

There is no one among us who is able to influence him with money nor honor. No matter what a man would say or do he would not be able to reach his status or position, or a level that Allah elevated him to. Likewise we, no matter how we describe or eulogize the Prophet [PBUH]. So no matter what we do we would not be able to reach one word that Allah Almighty mentioned in his great book regarding the right of the Prophet [PBUH], where he said:
{Verily, you possess the greatest of character}[The Pen: 4]

And the word “’Azeem”, “Great”, from Allah Almighty has no limit, and just like Allah Almighty raised our Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] upon all prophets and messengers. Same applies to awliyah or saints of Allah, Allah Almighty has raised the status of Sheikh Ibrahim may Allah be pleased with him, upon the entire Khulafah of Sheikh Tijjani, his Khulafah are many, but no one has ever come with a significance like how Sheikh Ibrahim came with. And this is the reason why we said, If Sheikh Tijjani was the seal, then Sheikh Ibrahim was spirit of this seal.

And as if Maulana Sheikh Ibrahim Niass may Allah be pleased with him knew what would happen after him in regards to deviation, weirdness, negligence of the obligatory acts and infringement of the sanctified rules as part and parcel of irregularities. So Sheikh may Allah be pleased with has expected from us to defend his[ hadrah] presence which was not known but holding on to the great book of Allah, which falsehood would not come in front of it nor behind it. And God willing, we will continue to work with his advice to us until Allah Almighty fulfill to his eminence his wishes for this Islamic religion and the one which he started working on, so that the concerned people with divine exclusivity who will come after him will complete it, God willing.

To be continued…………………….
