Jamia Sufiya has made significant progress over the last four years. Every day new features are added to its grand buildings and activities. Sheikh-e-Tariqat, the founder and chief of Spiritual Foundation and Jamia Sufiya has been making constant efforts to make Jamia Sufiya a world renowned and unique University of Sufism. A delegation of members from various fields from Great Britain have visited and toured the campus of Jamia Sufiya and appreciated the work being done in this direction by his Eminence.
How can you help?
You all know that power and wealth are like sunshine and shade. They are subject to rise and fall. Business and commerce may wane. Let us see what our Creator proclaims in his Holy book.
Everybody should see what investment he has made for the hereafter (Day of Judgement). (Al-Quran)
Whatever poverty, wealth we have here, in reality does not belong to us. Our real investment is that which we will make as a fixed deposit for the life coming after death. This is the only practical way where we can help ourselves.
Brothers and Sisters! I intend to overtly speak the truth to those who have a heart. Friends! I do not need to say anything about the fund raising practises prevalent in our society. There are some bad and corrupt elements in our society who have made it a flourishing business in the path of Deen (Islam) and which has also become a stumbling block for the people who are wealthy, generous, sincere and consider giving donation and charity their religious duty. But for them it is well nigh impossible to distinguish between right and wrong, true and false, honest and dishonest. Therefore when all the requisite legal formalities were completed for the grand projects of Spiritual Foundation then the big question arose in mind as to how do we would raise the fund for these grand projects. It is said that God helps those who help themselves. So this internal voice of heart encouraged us and the two grand projects of Spiritual Foundation started with the formula: How do you help yourself?
It has been said that charity should begin at home. With the merciful help of Allah his Eminence Hadrat Allama Syed Muhammed Jilani Ashraf Kichhauchavi came forward and endowed seven acres of his farmland to the Spiritual Foundation, he also donated his personal property for the project of Lucknow.
For the two grand projects of Spiritual Foundation, His Eminence began the charity from his home. It is because he says before we invite our friends and well wishers for this great mission, it is our moral duty to begin with the self. So that the well known saying "charity begins at home" could be brought into practical demonstration.
Both the grand projects of Spiritual Foundation accelerated the speed of their tardy construction when his Eminence put forth his feelings with an open mind, the proposal of fund raising before his well wishers, friends and followers. Allah is Praiseworthy! Friends and well wishers of his Eminence responded to his appeal. In this way the work of spiritual village began to gradually increase in pace. Whatever you have seen and learnt in relation to the projects of Spiritual Foundation has been the major contribution, generosity and large heartedness of his well wishers and of the divine help. I profusely express many thanks to Allah, and blessings of the Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) and the spiritual yearning of all Saints of Allah, that Spiritual Foundation is upholding all the ethical values in front of you in a practical form. Now the stage is all set to make your financial contribution/assistance towards it. I make an earnest appeal to all. Please come forward and do not let this auspicious and golden opportunity go empty handed. Allah the Almighty proclaims:
Whatever you own is perishable and whatever you send to us is imperishable. (Al-Quran)
Your own help is also included in this call of Allah.
You have seen and learnt about what services of Spiritual Foundation offers. For God's sake do not ignore it as an attempt of fund raising. At the time of extending help do not even think that you are favouring your religion. But thank your lord that he favoured you with his grace to get his work done. Make sure that this will not put me in any monetary loss rather it will bring countless rewards and fortunes for me. This will also bring benefit to my world, my family, my earthly life. The greatest benefit out of it will be the investment made as a fixed deposit for my eternal life. Keeping such spirit in mind and not caring for worldly profit and loss and for the pleasure of Allah may you graciously contribute to Jamia Sufiya and Spiritual Foundation. There lies the security and success of both worlds.
All should pray the following dua individually:
O my Allah give me courage so that I could make any financial contribution to the grand projects of Spiritual Foundation and Jamia Sufiya and bestow upon me your guidance and continue in future as well so that I may meet succes in this world and the hereafter. In this way I could accumulate my provision for the hereafter. Ameen.
Please note that the following couplet will work as a beacon of light in the dark:
waqt-e-tulu dekha waqt-e-ghroob dekha (I saw the rise and fall of time)
ab fikr-e-aakhirat hai dinaya ko khub dekha. (Now worry for the life after decline )
May Allah guide us all on His righteous path.
