The Coke studio thumpers, and sufi music lovers

To all the young people out there who love sufi music, the youth going crazy about baba bulleh shah’s songs.without even knowing what he wrote. Shouldn’t we listen and try to understand the poetry…..?? Offcourse which is not in our language, but we still dance to the tune. Because I think its “THE NEW IN THING….!!!!” People are trying to blind us with COKE studio and many sufi musi hubs like that….the beautiful ambience is breath taking….isnt it…?, the people playing different instruments, beautiful girls doing harmonies…..forcing us to be in the virtual world full of bliss and virtual happiness and not to ponder on the reality….but are we so lost , that we never think of what we are listening……lets give the thought today….

Bulleh Shah is believed to have been born in 1680, in the small village of Uch, Bahawalpur, Punjab, in present day Pakistan. His father, Shah Muhammad Darwaish, was a teacher and preacher in a villagemosque. Little is known about Bulleh Shah’s ancestry except that some of his forebears were migrants from Uzbekistan and that his family claimed direct descent from the prophet Muhammad…..!!!! (see the poetry latter, can somebody claiming to be the descendent of muhammad pbuh,can ever write such things…???)
He also received education from Maulana Mohiyuddin. His spiritual teacher was the Qadiri Sufi Shah Inayat Qadiri, who was a member of the Arain tribe of Lahore.


Sufism ……
So lets know a little about Sufism, what is Sufism….???

The word Sufi is most likely to be derived from the Arabic word “soof”, meaning wool. This is because of the Sufi habit of wearing woolen coats, a designation of their initiation into the Sufi order.
Sufism is known as “Islamic Mysticism,” in which Muslims seek to find divine love and knowledge through direct personal experience of God. Mysticism is defined as the experience of mystical union or direct communion with ultimate reality, and the belief that direct knowledge of God, spiritual truth, or ultimate reality can be attained through subjective experience (as intuition or insight)
Corruption of Tawheed in Allaah’s Attributes
Sufis totally deny all of Allah’s Attributes, such as His Face, His Hands, His Istawaa etc, using metaphorical meanings to explain His Attributes. Although the Companions and Tabi’een believed in them without any resemblance to His creation, the Sufi’s deem His Attributes to be a part of His creation. Ibn Arabi went as far as to say that he saw Allah during one of his ecstatic trances, in the shape of a young blond boy sitting on a Throne! (see Bezels of Wisdom, London 1980).

Union with the Creator
Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’aala is completely distinct from His Creation. He neither resembles His Creation, nor is He enclosed by it. Sufis however, with their deviant doctrine of Wahdat ul Wujood, believe contrary to this. Ibn Arabi, the Sufi scholar with whom which the concept of Wahdat ul Wujood is rightly attributed, asserted that since Allah’s Attributes were manifested in His creation, to worship His creation is similar to worshipping Him: “So the person with complete understanding is he who sees every object of worship to be a manifestation of the truth contained therein, for which it is worshipped. Therefore they call it a god, along with its particular name, whether it is a rock, or a tree, or an animal, or a person, or a star, or an angel.”9 This is how far the Sufis deviated because of their reliance on Greek and Eastern philosophy, rather than the Qur’an and Sunnah. To them God is not Allah Alone with whom no one else shares in His Dominion, but rather everything we see around us, and ultimately our own selves! Glory to Allah, who Stated “There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer” [42: 11].

Poetry Style
The verse form Bulleh Shah primarily employed is called the Kafi, a style of Punjabi, Sindhi and Siraiki poetry used not only by the Sufis of Sindh and Punjab, but also by Sikh gurus.
Just read few of the poems of the so called muslim poet, is this islam…????
Should we be the part of such thing……
Few of his works…….

Heer and Ranjha are already one.
But Heer, deluded, still searches the woods.
Here Ranjha is with her,
And she does not even know it.

I am tired of reading the Vedas and the Koran!
Obeisance has only abraded my forehead.
God was not in Mecca, nor any holy place.
But whoever finds Him becomes brightly illuminated.

Burn the prayer rug, break the clay pot,
Divest yourself of rosary, bowl and staff.
Those who love – proclaim repeatedly and loudly,
‘Eat the forbidden! Forsake halaal!’(a lawful diet)

Translated by Hajji Lok Makke Val Jande

The hajjis go to Mecca.
My beloved Ranjha is my Mecca.
Yes, I am crazy!
I am wedded to Ranjha.
Still my father pushes me.

Yes, I am crazy!
The hajjis go to Mecca
My bridegroom, within me, is my Mecca.
Yes, I am crazy!
Hajjis and ghazis both lie within us,
Thieves and pickpockets too.

Yes, I am crazy!
The Hajjis go to Mecca
But I am going to Takht Hazara.

Yes, I am crazy!
Wherever is your beloved, there lies Kaaba,
Though you search the four books
Yes, I am crazy!

Stay silent to survive.
People cannot stand to hear the truth.
They are at your throat if you speak it.
They keep away from those who speak it.
But truth is sweet to its lovers!
). Truth destroys shara (shariah
Brings rapture to its lovers,
And unexpected riches,
(shariah) obscures Which .
Those lovers cannot remain silent
Who have inhaled the fragrance of truth.
Those who have woven love into their lives,
Leave this world of falsehood.
Bulleh Shah speaks the truth.
He uncovers the truth of shara (shariah).
He opens the path to the fourth level,
(shariah) obscures Which .

What is left to say…?????
Shouldn’t we be thinking about it, people presenting anything in front of us, and we are consuming……just consuming …..not even thinking whats inside the beautiful packing.

Sufism , with sufi music is destroying the beliefs of true muslims
They are trying to destroy the concept of tawheed and oneness of ALLAH…..and we…..yes WE muslims are being a part of it…..Astaghfirullah….please please…think over it…..
