المدرسين والشيوخ من الشيخ مير اسد الله قادري
Hadhrat Hussain Shujauddin Siddiqui Izzat (رحمة لله علىـہ) was the son and Successor ( Ja-e-Nashin ) of the Hadhrat Mohammad Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ).
There were many similarities between the father and son. They looked similar in height, face and style. Those who have seen the times of both the great father and his great son, expressed amazement at these similarities. Hazrat Hussain Shujuauddin Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ) was indeed a true replica of his great father.
Hazrat Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ) was born on October 21, 1909, corresponding to Shawwal 6, 1327 AH. His genealogical lineage from father's side meets with Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) in 33rd generation.
His mother died when he was 2 years old. Thus he was very affectionate of his father throughout his life. As compared to the rest of his brothers, he had the opportunity to serve his father for long years. He was the second one (among his brothers) to get Khilafah from his father. He was 18 years old then. The first one was his eldest brother Hazrat Abdur Rahim Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ).
Hadhrat Shujauddin Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ) completed his schooling in erstwhile State of Hyderabad and joined Government service. He retired as Tahsildar of Hosanagar District, Karnataka State in 1970. He did Hajj after retirement from Government service.
As has been described above, being the youngest son, he had the opportunity to serve his father for long years. He learnt Quran, Hadith, Fiqh, Theology and Tasawwuf under the able guidance of his great father Hadhrat Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ). He also completed all manaazils of Sufi traditions on the hands of his father and later emerged on the horizon as a bright star of among the great league of Awliya-e-Izaam.
Hadhrat Shujauddin Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ) undertook regressive training (Sulook) under his father. He once told me that there was a time when he used to walk 25 kilometers after 12 midnight doing Zikr-e-Jaher (repeating Allah's names loudly) through lonely rural area to reach a mosque located at a hill. He used to reach there just before Salatul Fajr. He used to do the Salah in the mosque in congregation and return to his home through the same rout on foot. This practice was continued for several years. He used to keep fast after fast, sometimes several days at a stretch right from his childhood. He once told me that his mother used to get amazed during his childhood at his continuous fasting for days at a stretch.
He gave Zakat of Allah's (swt) names (zikr of Asma-e-Elahiyyah) continuously for over 18 years. To repeat Allah's (swt) name one hundred thousand times is known as one Zakat. He once told me that he had repeated every Ism (name) of Allah (swt) more than ten million times each. He also taught me how to repeat the names of Allah (SWT) and explained how the facts of that Ism get unfolded when we wholeheartedly repeat Allah (SWT) names. In his supervision I also gave several Zakats of Asma-e-Elahiya.
I learnt a lot under Hadhrat Shujauddin Siddiqui's (رحمة لله علىـہ) guidance. He was at the helm of spiritual hierarchy for many years before his death. I was exposed to a great extent under his guidance as to how the spiritual administration works in this Universe and how important is the role of Awliya Allah in this regard.
He also informed me that Hadhrat Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ), his father gave Zakahs of Asma-e-Elahiyyah more than 20 million times each.
Shaikh Mir Asedullah Quadri with Shaikh Shujauddin Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ)
Hadhrat Shujauddin Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ) was one of the greatest celebrities among Awliya-e-Kubar. I am not saying it out of my affection for my Shuyooks.
I have observed them for years at a stretch and I used to get amazed at the life styles of these Awliya Allah.
I have never seen them doing anything which hurts people in spite of their big mistakes. They were like big magnates of affection. People used to rally around them in large numbers whenever they attended any function. Their trust in Allah (swt) and His Apostle (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) was like a solid rock. They were rare gems of tawakkal, humility and selfless living of perfect human beings (Insaan-e-Kamil). Whoever visited them and sat in their company for a few days became good Muslim. I saw some notorious men becoming pious Muslims in a few months and I used to get amazed at the change in their way of thinking and life style.
He had several thousand Mureedeen who are spread all over the world. I know some of his Khulafa who reached to great heights in Sufi traditions.
Hadhrat Shujauddin Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ) was a great poet. Compilation of his Sufi poetry titled "Kulliyaat-e-Izzat" was published in 1996 and is available in the market. Free Download version of this poetry will be made available on this site soon.
Hadhrat Shujauddin Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ) died on July 17, 1998, corresponding to 22nd Rabia I, 1417 AH at the age of 89 years. He was buried nearby the Dargah of Hadhrat Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ).
The grand Dome now under construction at Siddique Gulshan, over the Dargah of Hadhrat Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ) also covers the Dargah of Hadhrat Shujauddin Siddiqui (رحمة لله علىـہ).
His Urs is celebrated between 21-23 Rabia I, every lunar calendar.
He has two sons and 5 daughters. His eldest son, Hadhrat Mohammad Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui took over as his successor (Ja-e-Nasheen) and has successfully continued the traditions of his great father for the past 15 years.
