The Maqam of Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin from Halab


The Maqam of Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin Alayhi Rahma from Halab:

Bismillah …

Assalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, We pray this finds everyone well, wrapped in Allah’s mercy and steadfastly traveling the path to eternal felicity, in sha Allah.

Shaykh Abdullah Ibn Muhammad Najib Sirajuddin al-Hussaini Alayhi Rahma was a descendant of Imam Hussain bin Ali Abi Tlib on his father’s side, Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin was born into an honorable and pious family, on the verge of the collapse of the Ottoman Sultanate in 1923 CE. During his childhood, Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin was surrounded by the love and care of his father, Shaykh Muhammad Najib Sirajuddin , who was also a leading scholar of Tafsir, Fiqh, Hadith and Tasawwuf. Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin was known for expressing much respect, benevolence and love towards his family. It is also said that he was very enthusiastic about helping his mother in her domestic tasks. He loved his father dearly as well, and after his father passed away he always began his writings with homage.

Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin Alayhi Rahma was one of the Greatest ‘Ulama and Awliya of the past century and an extraordinary scholar and saint who dedicated his entire life to the service of Islam and It is without doubt that Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin Alayhi Rahma had an important role in defining the scholarship of Aleppo (Halab) during the past century. The Noble Shaykh was known to see the Prophet Peace Be upon Him whilst asleep and awake and one time Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin Alayhi Rahma saw the Prophet, upon him blessings and peace, ordered our liege lord ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib to dress the Shaykh with his cloak, and another time the Prophet himself dressed him with his noble hand, and another time the Prophet told him: “You are our dedicated servant,” after which he would say: “The Prophet is pleased to have me as his servant.” and some of The ‘Ulama have even said when the Shaykh would begin writing his books on The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) it was as if the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) was standing in front of the Shaykh and the Shaykh was describing the Exalted Attributes and physical beauty of Rasul Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin was truly in love with The Best of Creation Rasul Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) and the Qutb of Damascus al-Arif Billah Shaykh Abdul Rahman Shaghouri Alayhi Rahma called him “the Pole of Prophetic love of our times.”.

There was a brother in Saudi who told Shaykh Rabbani that a friend of his was wondering for a while about how to learn more about the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). One night in his dream he saw the Prophet, and so he asked the blessed Prophet, “Ya Rasul Allah, how do I learn more about you?’

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said to him, “If you want to know about me, then read the book Sayyidna Muhammad Rasul Allah by Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin Alayhi Rahma.”

This book was banned in Saudi, so he asked the beloved Prophet where to find it as he has never heard of it. In the dream he heard the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) say, “Go to Aleppo (Halab), and you will find it.”

This man never knew who Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin Alayhi Rahma was, or what this book was. He went to Halab and he found out about the book; he read it and it transformed his life.

Similarly, one of The Shuyukh, a Halabi himself Shaykh Muhammad Qaylish, mentioned, ‘’I used to be a common person. I was 15 or 16 and I read this book and it transformed me. I used to take this book after ‘Isha, lock my door and sit under the light, and I used to read and cry in yearning for the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). I used to cry in love for the Prophet. I used to cry out of my sense of distance from the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). I would cry at the beauty of this man (peace and blessing be upon him). I would cry at how far I was from his radiant example. Those tears melted how I was, and it transformed me.”

Shaykh Muhammad Qaylish, when Shaykh Rabbani met him, was in his early twenties, and he was truly a remarkable man. It is as Imam Busiri said, ‘by the mention of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), do hearts come to life and sins and errors are forgiven and cast off. And I long that I live through him, content and successful, and that I meet him and have no burdens upon me. A Prophet, perfected in his qualities, until he was called the Beloved.”

Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin Alayhi Rahma’s Magnum Opus ‘’Our Master Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam’’ is considered to be his best work, and this was the book that was recited to Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam in their dream and then placed onto the Kaba, The Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said ‘’put this book that Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin Alayhi Rahma wrote on the Kaba.’’ And many Brothers and Sisters have had many Dreams of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam after reading this blessed book and other books authored by Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin Alayhi Rahma and the reports of many Ulama and Awliya who saw the Prophet with Shaykh Abdullah Alayhi Rahma on his side in their dreams are countless and many people have had dreams of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam with Shaykh Najib Sirajuddin Alayhi Rahma sitting on one side of Rasul Allah and Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin Alayhi Rahma sitting on the other side of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.

In a time when Islam was weakened severely in many ways, one man inspired the people to return to the righteous path as no other. And even though Aleppo is the city of scholars, some said that no scholar was left in Halab (Aleppo) any longer after his passing away.

  2. salaam alaikum dear sidi,

    Can u please tell me where this book is available?

    (Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin Alayhi Rahma’s Magnum Opus ‘’Our Master Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam’’ )

    wassalaam

    • Walaykum Salam Sidi, there are Two Volumes of the Book ”Our Master Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) in The English Language.

      A Brief Introduction to The Book and The Noble Shaykh Alayhi Rahma:

      Modern times have made it even more important that Muslims acquaint themselves with their Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam), not only for the sake of their personal spiritual development, but also for the sake of the religion as a whole. There has perhaps never been a time when the world was more in need of an authentic depiction of the Best of Creation (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). ‘Our Master Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)’ is a unique work discussing the noble qualities and characteristics of the Final Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) in a way that is infused with love and devotion. In the first volume of this book, the author depicts all the fine attributes of our Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) with respect to his physical beauty, his eloquence and wisdom, his exalted status, his sublime character and his mercy (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam).

      This incredible expression of Prophetic love was written by the scholar of Aleppo, Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin al-Hussaini (Alayhi Rahma), who was not only a Hafiz, a leading scholar of Hadith and exegete of the Qur’an, but also a true Saint, referred to by scholars as ‘The Pole of Prophetic Love of our Times’. His book is the product of true scholarship and virtue.

      ‘It is as though the Shaykh (Alayhi Rahma) was looking directly at the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) before him as he wrote, deriving his beautiful expressions from the light of his (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) countenance, so that by divine providence his insight was opened, and he grazed in the pastures of subtle secrets, uncovering the beauty and perfection of the Messenger’s (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) character, imbibing the fragrance of the Prophetic Sunnah, bathing in the light of the Muhammad reality and its meanings, and tasting of its fruits, and then gathering all of these illuminations in a work so noble and rarefied that it would not be surprising if it were to be read to a sick person and so cure him.’ Shaykh Muhammad al-Ninowy
