The Principles of the Haddaadiyyah
Mail to a Friend Printer friendly
One of the students of Yahya al-Haddadi stated the following lines as occurs in the cassette "al-Qawl al-Jaliyy"
And no soon had the caravan of Yahya disappeared from sight, travelling to Hajj, except that I beseeched him (with istighaathah), calling out "O Shaykh, reach me!" For indeed I am stirred by grief. I hold back my tears because your departure has made me cry.
The making of istighaathah (seeking rescue) and also using the phrase "reach me" (أدركني) is a well-known phrase of the Sufi grave worshippers who use the exact same word when beseeching their saints for help and relief. It is not surprising that all of this Ghuluww (exaggeration and extremism) towards Yahya al-Haddadi would lead some of his students and followers to fall into the likes of this. This is why the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) warned and prohibited his Ummah from excessively praising him. However, it seems that in the view of some of his students, al-Hajuri has reached a position loftier than 14 centuries worth of the men of knowledge, and he's combined the traits of the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) and that of the Companions and the Imaams of the Salaf, and if melted his flesh would become the verses of the Qur'an, so what else is left except to beseech him with istighaathah in difficult moments of excessive grief and loss of being!
