      HADHRAT MIR MOMIN ALI QUADRI        (رحمة الله عليه)

 

Hadhrat Mir Momin Ali Quadri (رحمة لله علىـہ) was a famous Shaikh of his time.  He is the honorable father of our great Shaikh Mir Asedullah Quadri. He was famous for tawakkal, charity and renouncement of worldly comforts.  We have provided below excerpts of What Shaikh Mir Asedullah Quadri said about his great father. 

 

Hadhrat Momin Ali Quadri (رحمة الله عليه) is my father, mentor and the first teacher who taught me the Alphabets.  He used to teach us (his children) right from our childhood.  He taught me Arabic, English, Urdu, Quran, Ahadith, logic, Islamic fiqh, and tasawwuf.  

During my secondary school days, Shaikh used to give me a passage in Urdu daily and asked me to translate it in English and Arabic. I was required to read that translation loudly in front of the whole family the next day.  Then he used to correct it.   This is how I learned and achieved mastery in Urdu, English and to some extent  in Arabic language.  

He used to teach Maths, Physics, Chemistry, English and other subjects on a regular basis and this resulted me doing top in every class throughout my school studies. He used to encourage us to write poetry and memorize Urdu Kalam in praise of dignitaries of Islam..

Shaikh also guided me to develop the right etiquette and virtuous characters in life.  In addition, he taught me wrestling and encouraged me to join Gym for regular exercise.  He imbibed in me the desire to do something good in life so that people remember long after we are gone from this world. 

I have never seen a Shaikh like Hadhrat Momin (رحمة الله عليه) who has done so much Zikr-e-Elahi.  I do not know how many million times he has recited Asma-e-Elahiya because he never disclosed this us.  He used to sit, like we sit in Qaeda in Salah,  from Salatul Zuhar till beyond Salatul Isha, getting up only for Salatul Asr, Maghrib and Isha. After Isha, his Murideen used to visit him. 

When we used to get up for Salatul Fajr, we used to find him on the Musallah doing Zikr after his Tahajjud prayers. He did that for decades. He also taught me Zikr which I continued for the rest of my life.  He was instrumental in developing in me the  love of Allah (سبحانه و تعالى), His Apostle Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), Sahabah and Awliya Allah. 

Hadhrat Hussain Shujauddin Siddiqui (رحمة الله عليه), the son and successor of Hadhrat Mohammad Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة الله عليه) once told me that he was 10 years older than my father but he and my father were very good friends as my father was  Murid and Khalifa of Hadhrat Shaikh Mohammad Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة الله عليه).  He also helped my father during his rigorous training (سلوک) under Hadhrat Mohammad Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة الله عليه). 

Hadhrat Piya Quadri (رحمة الله عليه), one of the most closest Murideen  of Hadhrat Mohammad Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة الله عليه was also  a great friend of my father.  He  used to visit us regularly long after the death of our father and had become like a member of our family. He used to tell us a lot about the life of Hadhrat Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة الله عليه).  His Mazar is located attached to a mosque in Nampally area in Hyderabad.   

My mother played a great role in our religious upbringing and character building.  She used to tell us stories of the Prophets, and  the dignitaries of Islam.  I remember we used to cry a lot in Muharram when my mother used to tell us about Imam Hussain (رضي الله تعالى عنه) and the episode of Karbala. During school holidays, she used to tell us about Ghousul Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه), Khaja Gharib Nawaz (رضي الله تعالى عنه ) and other   Awliya Allah. 

Once in my early childhood she told me that tea drinking was bad.  So I did not touch the tea for the following 20 years till I was employed.  Thanks to  my parents, it is because of them that I was saved from any type of bad habits in life.  

                                                 Shaikh Mir Asedullah Quadri 

 

With our Shaikh Mir Asedullah Quadri's permission, we have included four couplets from his Urdu Kalam here, that show his love for his great father Shaikh Mir Momin Ali Quadri (رحمة الله عليه).

 

ہے ثابت ہر دو عالم میں بڑھائ میرے مومن کی
ہمیں  حاصل ہے  ہرجا  رہنمائ  میرے مومن کی

Hadhrat Momin (رحمة الله عليه) is well known among Awliya Allah.  And his guidance is available to us all the time in every walk of life.


مجھے دونوں جہاں میں جو بھی چاہیں وہ دلاتے ہیں
زمیں  تا  عرش ہرجا  ہے رسائ  میرے  مومن  کی

 I get whatever I want in this life,  as I have realized that his Dua for me is a big source which helps me acquire anything I wish. 


ہیں  محبوب  خدا  ،  مقبول   دربار  رسالتۖ   ہیں
رسول اللہۖ   نے عظمت  بڑھائ  میرے  مومن  کی

 Hadhrat Momin (رحمة الله عليه) is favorite of Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) and His Apostle Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم).  It is from the Sadaqa of Rasullullah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) that Hadhrat Momin (رحمة الله عليه) has become so honored among Awliya Allah. 


خدا  کے  فضل  کی  بارش  کا  ابر دائمی  ہیں  وہ
برستی ہے جو ھم  پہ  وہ  ہے لائ  میرے مومن کی

 He is indeed like a cloud of Allah's (سبحانه و تعالى) beneficence over us head and whatever we receive  is because of this cloud of divine beneficence.

ANCESTORS

Shaikh Mir Momin Ali Quadri (رحمة الله عليه) is Syed, Al-Hassani wal Hussaini, as he is  direct descendant of Hadhrat Ghousul Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه).  It is reported that his ancestors migrated from Baghdad, Iraq to India when Khilji dynasty was ruling India.  Later they shifted to Deccan and settled at a place called Patancheru.  

 

SHAIKH'S FATHER 

It is reported that Hadhrat Mir Momin Ali Quadri's (رحمة الله عليه) grand father, Mir Rustum Ali Quadri (رحمة الله عليه) lived in Patancheru.  He was a well known Shaikh in that town.  People used to flock to him for Dua. 

His son, Hadhrat Mir Faizullah Quadri (رحمة الله عليه) (father of Shaikh Mir Momin Ali Quadri  رحمة الله عليه ) was employed in the Police Department under the Earstwhile State of Hyderabad.  He was posted at Hyderabad in 1915.  This was the reason for Hadhrat Faizullah Quadri (رحمة الله عليه) to shift his family to Hyderabad in that year.  

Hadhrat Faizullah Quadri (رحمة الله عليه) was a Sufi at heart.  He was  fond of Hadhrat Mir Momin (رحمة الله عليه) whose Dargah is located at a hill top in Hyderabad.  It is here that he prayed Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) for a pious son.  His supplication was  answered and a son was born in 1919.  He named the son Mir Momin Ali Quadri (رحمة الله عليه).

 

BIRTH

Hadhrat Mir Momin Ali Quadri (رحمة الله عليه) was born on Friday, May 2, 1919, corresponding to Sha'aban 1st, 1337 AH.   

 

EDUCATION

Hadhrat Momin Ali Quadri (رحمة الله عليه) was taught Arabic, Quran, Hadith by his father Hadhrat Mir Faizullah Quadri. Later he joined a Madrasa where both religious and worldly education was imparted. His entire education was done in the Earstwhile State of Hyderabad. After completing high school, he joined a College affiliated to Osmania University and completed BA. Later he completed Bachelors Degree in Unani Medicine.  

 

BAYA, IJAZA AND KHILAFA 

Hadhrat Mir Momin Ali Quadri (رحمة الله عليه) took baya on the hand of Shaikh Mohammad Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة الله عليه) at the age of 21 years.  It is reported that he had undergone rigorous religious training  on the hands of Hazrat Mohammad Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة الله عليه). He used to sit alone inside a Mountain Cave at Banjara Hills in Hyderabad and used to do Zikr Jaher for hours every night.  Those days Banjara Hills was a mountain covered with thick forest and wild life. 

After some time Shaikh Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة الله عليه) asked him to perform Salatul Asr at a mosque close by the Dargah of Syed Ahmed Badepa (رحمة الله عليه) at Ahmed Nagar area in congregation, then go to Pahadi Shariff area, 25-30 kilometers away and perform Salatul Maghrib at a mosque close by the Dargah of Hadhrat Baba Sharfuddin Soharwardi (رحمة الله عليه) which was located at a hill top.  The only way to reach that mosque was to climb to the hill top through 200 rough stone stairs.  Shaikh used to perform Asr at Ahmednagar mosque and rush on his cycle to Pahadi Shariff to perform Maghrib prayers.  And he did that for over a year.  

It is reported that once Hadhrat Mohammad Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة الله عليه) asked him to lead Salatul Fajr at the Pahadi Shariff mosque for one month. Shaikh was confused as he knew that there is an Imam working at Pahadi Shariff mosque.  However, as per the instruction of his Shaikh, Hadhrat Momin (رحمة الله عليه) went for Salatul Fajr a little earlier and sat in the mosque and was thinking how to lead the prayers in the presence of the appointed people in that mosque. When the time for congregation arrived, it was announced that the regular Imam was sick and he could not make it for Salatul Fajr.  People looked for a suitable Imam.  They spotted Hadhrat Momin (رحمة الله عليه) sitting in a corner of the mosque and requested him to lead the prayers.  The regular Imam could not make it for Salah for the following one month and Hadhrat Momin (رحمة الله عليه) became the Imam for Salatul Fajr in that mosque for one month.

After years of rigorous training, Shaikh Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui gave him Khilafa.  

After the death of Hadhrat Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ) in 1962, Hadhrat Momin (رحمة الله عليه) had the opportunity to learn Tasawwuf under the able guidance of Hadhrat Badruddin Khaled Wajoodi Quadri (رحمة لله علىـہ). Hadhrat Khaled Wajoodi (رحمة الله عليه) also gave him Khilafa.  

Hadhrat Momin (رحمة الله عليه)   spent a few years in the company of Hadhrat Azizullah Shah Irfani (رحمة الله عليه) who was successor and Ja-e-Nasheen of Hadhrat Elahi Baksh (رحمة لله علىـہ), the Arabic and Hadith teacher of Hadhrat Mohammad Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ) at Darul Uloom, Hyderabad.

 

GOVERNMENT SERVICE

After completing Graduation, Hadhrat Momin (رحمة الله عليه) joined Government service.  However, he left the job after a few years and concentrated full time on religious education of people. 

 

SPIRITUAL EMINENCE

Hadhrat Momin (رحمة الله عليه) was famous for Tawakkal and charity. He never kept anything for himself or for his family.  There were no regular sources of income after he left the job.  For years, the house was run on meager income of some Arabic teaching.  Even this meager income was often given in Charity. Many a times there was no food at home for his kids.  The children used to have only one pair of Kurta and Pajama for the whole year that was made on the occasion of Eid al Fitr.  

Shaikh used to sit every day doing Zikr from Zuhar till Isha, sitting straight in the direction of Qibla, taking breaks only for Asr and Maghrib Prayers. He used to conduct classes for Quran understanding regularly in which Tafseer-e-Siddiqui was taught.  Many people used to attend these classes.

Everyday after Isha, scores of people used to visit the Shaikh   for religious education and for their problems.  Most of them used to be his Murideen.  Shaikh used to give baya in Quadri and Chishtee orders. People who were close to the Shaikh testify that he was a prominent member of spiritual hierarchy of great Awliya Allah of his time.

Piya Quadri (رحمة الله عليه), one of the close Murideen of Hadhrat Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة الله عليه) was a good friend of Shaikh Momin Ali Quadri (رحمة الله عليه).  He was a regular visitor of the Shaikh.  Even after the death of Hadhrat Momin Ali Quadri (رحمة الله عليه), he maintained the relations. He and his wife often visited Shaikh's residence. He died in 1985. His Mazar is located at Nampally area in Hyderabad.
