Ghuloo in the Faza'il-e-AA'maal
Quotes from Fazail-e-Aa'maal (Ta'alim book)
I've found the following from Fadha'il A'maal' (Thaalim book) & Fadha'il Haj of Zakhariya Sahib, the famous books of Tabligi Jamaat that the Tabligi people used to read openly after the prayers in many masjids and in their homes, mainly in Asian countries. Also this Urdu book has been translated into many languages except Arabic. Here I've quoted some fabricated stories with reference from the above mentioned books for your eyes, to check whether is it allowed to preach this type of stories in our masjids that would corrupt our belief (Aqeedah).
See Fazail Hajj (Urdu page 138, Tamil page 225)
"When you see the green dome then it should be with awe and reverence and you should take care of the honour of the Huzoor and reflect that in that pure dome is he who is the best of creation, leader of the prophets and virtuous the Angels. The place of the holy grave is superior than any other place and that place which touches the holy body of the Huzoor is superior to the Ka'bah, superior to Arsh, superior to Kursi in fact superior than everything in the heavens and earth."
See Fazail Hajj (Urdu page 141, Tamil page 224)
"When you visit anyone's grave, you should proceed from the direction of the feet because if Allah has given the dead the power of Kashf then it is easy for him to see you because when the dead turns to his right in his grave then his sight falls towards your feet. And when anyone approaches the grave from the head side of the dead then the dead has trouble and difficulty in seeing you"
See Fazail Hajj (Urdu page 164, Tamil page 267)
"One person asked Khidr that, "Have you ever seen any wali who is better than you?" Khidr replied, "Yes, I have. I once visited the masjid of the prophet. I saw Imaam Abdur Razzaq Muhaddith and he was teaching Ahadith. The crowd and I listened to the Ahaadeeth from him. In one corner of the masjid there was a youngster sitting who had kept his head between his knees away from the crowd. I said, Do you not see that ahaadeeth of the prophet are being taught? Why don't you also attend the circle? He neither lifted his head nor did he look at me and said,
"In that place are those who listen to ahaadeeth from the slave of Razzaq. But I'm the one who listen to Ahaadeeth from the Razzaq, not from the slave of Razzaq."
Hadhrath Khidr said that , "If you are indeed speaking the truth then tell who am I? He raised his head and said that, "If I am not mistaken, then you are Khidr," Hadhrat Khidr then said, "From this I came to know that there are such wali of Allah whom even I cannot recognize."
See Fadha'il 'A'maal, Fadha'il Namaaz (Urdu page 13/14, Tamil page 26/27)
"It has been reported from a number of companions and from amongst them Hadhrat Uthman, Hadhrat Abo Hurairah, Hadhrat Anas, etc. In different wordings that there are some people who posses the ability of KASHF. They can feel the sins being committed by people. Therefore the story of the Imam of the world Hadhrat Abu Haneefa is famous that he used to see the sins of the people fall out as they performed wudu."
See Fadha'il 'A'maal, Fadha'il Namaaz (Urdu page 62/64, Tamil page 125/126 & 131)
Some people prayed for 40 to 50 years Isha and Fajr with the same wudu
The following is to be found in the Faza'il-e-A'maal [Virtues of Salaat - Part III (b) - Stories of the Pious (Story # XIII pages - 84-5), it reads;
Imaam Abu Hanifa (Rahmatullah alaih) is famous for his vigil, it is said that for thirty, forty or fifty years (according to the information of different narrators) he offered his Fajr prayer with the Wudhu for Isha. He would go to sleep only for a few minutes in the afternoon saying, "It is 'Sunnat' to sleep in the afternoon."
It is said about Said bin Almusayyab (Rahmatullah alaih) that for fifty years he offered his Fajr prayer with the 'Wudhu' performed at Isha.
Imaam Ghazzali (Rahmatullah alaih) on the authority of Abu Talib Makki reported the same practice by no less than forty 'Tabais', some of whom had been doing it for forty years continuously.
Abu Atab Salimi (Rahmatullah alaih) is reported to have been fasting during the day and weeping during the night for full forty years.
It is said about a Sayyed that continuously for twelve days he has been offering his Salaat with the same 'Wudhu'. For fifteen years, his back had not touched the bed. He would also go without food for days together.
The last paragraph reads as follows;
Besides the above, there are numerous records of the pious pursuits of the Heroes of Islamic History. It is difficult to cover all of them in this book. All that has been said here is sufficient to serve as examples. May Allah, through his grace, grant me and the readers of this book the strength to follow in the footsteps of these blessed people! 'Ameen'!
PEACE BE UPON THOSE WHO ACCEPT GUIDENCE
