مقامات الأولياء
Status of Saints[Friends of Allah]

In fact, it has emerged in recent time or of late, some risky phenomena or occurrences, part of which is:
indulgence of some murids in somethings that are contrary to the ethics of the murids of Tariqah. And the danger of engagement in the likes of these issues is very huge upon murids, because the least effect of it is thickening the [divine] curtain upon [salik] who strives to reach the divine reality, so he would be in the swirl of confusion and misperception wasting his time in which is not require to indulge in it originally.

Part of these phenomena is engagement with some murids by regarding some awliyah [friends of Allah] more virtuous above others, or dividing or specifying their status knowing that it is only Allah Almighty who distributes positions and ranks. And not the awliyah who distribute them.

And each one of them Allah distinguishes him with position which has been preserved for him without claiming or fabricating for himself. And will downplay upon the position of awliyah who have came before him. Or who were higher than him in terms of position among the special people due to the achievement of worldly matters.
So, because of this Sheikh Ibrahim Niass may Allah be pleased with him has set up his approach and clarified it and walked upon it. And that is what his khulafah or predecessor and followers are upon now in many parts of the world.

براءة سماحة شيخ الإسلام مولانا الحاج إبراهيم نياس رضي الله عنه من الدعاوى الباطلة التي تنسب إليه زورا وبهتانا

Innocence of his eminence Sheikhul Islam Maulana Sheikh Ibrahim Niass may Allah be pleased with him
From the false claims that are attributed to him dishonestly and slanderously

In fact, his eminence Sheikh Ibrahim Niass may Allah be pleased with him is innocent from all the things attributed to him now of delusions and viciousness. And he has no link at all with what is happening now. And all these issues are affiliated to Sheikh Tijjani. However, the noble messenger of Allah[PBUH] is the master of the entire creatures. And if you have some ignorant people regarding the shoes of the Prophet [PBUH] more virtuous than some prophets, then this is an issue that takes [people] off the path [of Islam]. In fact, Allah Almighty has differentiated between mankind and inanimate [creatures], no matter what it is. And man is not compared with a shoe by virtue of being a prophet. And the likes of Sayyidina Ibrahim may the peace of Allah be upon him and the one who comes with a shoe with an impression that it is the lowest thing and then would say: Verily, this shoe is more virtuous than Sayyidina Ibrahim may the peace of Allah be upon him with his prophethood and messengership and his position in the sight of Allah, because if this statement emerged from a none believer, then is a different thing. And when it emerged from a person who entered the Tariqah to distort it he was initiated in it and others have commanded him to do that, then we have to say: Hasbuna Lahu Wan’emal Wakeel [Allah is enough for us as a shield] Allah is enough for him. And we have no comment on this, because the Tariqah of Tijjaniyah is a Tariqah of discipline. It is a Tariqah built on the holy Qur’an and noble Sunnah. And total reliance on this Tariqah is a virtuous blessings of Allah and there is no single person that would be able to reach the determination and effort or the strength and power that [Sheikh Ibrahim Niass] had reached.

And because of that, so if he [that man] became incapable of eulogizing his Sheikh and he would not get [anything to say] than to regard him above the Prophet [PBUH]. Or above a different prophet? If he were not a Muslim then he is doomed. But if he is a Muslim he needs to repent before he returns as a Muslim. And if others initiated him in into Islam to undertake this work to distort the Tariqah of Sheikh Tijjani, or distorts the approach of Sheikh Ibrahim, then we hereby say: Asbuna Lahu Wani’emal Wakeel, [Allah is enough for us a shield]. And Allah will separate between the two of us with the truth.

So, due to that, if you want to eulogize the eminence of Maualana Sheikh Ibrahim Niass, may Allah be pleased with him, do not regard him above Sheikh Tijjani, because the moment you did that, you have humiliated him in reality and have misstated his status and did not eulogize him. For example, you say someone has not given birth and he was not been born, if you say he has not given birth, there is no fault in it because Allah might have not provided him with a child.

But it is not possible to say that a man came into this earth without birth, this is not found. When you come and say that he [Sheikh Ibrahim] was not born, I would say that you have accused him that all his known children are not his children. So what sort of abusive behavior is bigger than this, because you said to a person that his entire children have no father?!

So because of this, it is very necessary for you not to stop holding fast unto the holy Qur’an and the noble Sunnah of the Prophet [PBUH]. And to give each waliyi his due in terms of glorification and reverence. And Sheikh Tijjani may Allah be pleased with him is the seal of the awliyah, he would never profess or proclaim [any superiority], and he had never commanded us to disrespect or belittle Sheikh Abdul Qadir Al-Jailani, or Imamul Shazili, not even Al-Rufa’ee, not even Al-Badwi not even Al-Mursi, but he used to revere all of them.

And part of what is known by everyone is that, a person that knows the value of something is the one who revers it. However, as for the ignorant he is like a blind who has no commander and does not know which hole he would fall in. So those people if they think by so doing, they would raise the status of Sheikh and revere him, but they have rather fell and lowered (his status) to the lowest ebb. But Allah would protect Sheikh from these false [exaggerative] claims.

So it is incumbent to clarify to people that Allah has protected and freed the eminence of Maulana Sheikh Ibrahim Niass, may Allah be pleased with him from all these falsehoods that are attributed to him, dishonestly and slanderously, considering [by those people] that that is his status. But as for the [mujazib] who is lured in a hallucinatory state or those who claim to be in hallucination, they had been like this since time immemorial. But their statements are regarded like the statements of lunatics or abnormal people, it is rejected and laughed over. However, it would not be viewed as an authentic issue that is built upon and it is not taken [ with any seriousness] and that is the nature of [majazeeb] hallucinated people.
