Dua for Transgressors

Once Hadhrat Ma’roof Karkhi (rahmatullahi alayh) with a few of his mureeds came by a group of evil doers who were singing and dancing.

A mureed said: “Hadhrat curse these transgressors who are so flagrantly transgressing the Shariah so that they be destroyed and society be saved from their evil.”

Hadhrat Ma’roof Karkhi (rahmatullah alayh) raised his hands and supplicated:

“O Allah! Grant these people more and better happiness than what they are presently experiencing.”

The mureeds were stunned with surprise.The group of transgressors had heard the words of supplication emanating from Hadhrat Ma’roof. The hearts of people are in the control of Allah Ta’ala. The effect of the Dua was so overwhelming on the transgressors that they broke their musical instruments and came crying to Hadhrat Ma’roof Karkhi. They sincerely repented and joined his circle of mureeds.

Addressing his disciples, Hadhrat Ma’roof Karkhi said:

O my Mureeds! All of them attained the goal (of Divine Proximity) without any dharb. Just reflect! How beautifully my hope has been fulfilled by Allah Ta’ala.”

Dharb literally means ‘to strike. In this context it refers to the special method of thikr which involves striking the heart with the Name of Allah by movements of the head. It is a prescribed form of spiritual treatment which is unrelated to the Sunnah.

Guidance is the prerogative solely of Allah Ta’ala. Sometimes He transforms the heart in a second and the evil doer instantaneously becomes a Wali. In this regard Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Shareef: “Allah draws to Himself whomever He wishes, and He guides whoever turns to Him in repentance.”

Examples of instantaneous production of Auliya of high rank are the Saahireen (magicians) of Fir’oun. They were instantaneously transformed and became Auliya the very moment the Haqq was revealed to them with their defeat at the hands of Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam).
