Download PDF: [S] The Jannati Door of Baba Fareed
Khawaja Qamarudeen – may Allah be pleased with him – also explains that, “There are many people who question me about the Jannati door which is found in the blessed Darbaar of Baba Fareed – may Allah be pleased with him – and they want to know how this came about. They also complain that they had seen many books of Hadith and the Tafseer and nowhere is this mentioned. At the same time, the Sunni claim that whoever walks through this door, he will enter Jannah. They ask us where we have found proof for this or in which book is something like this substantiated?”
I then asked them, “What are reasons that you people would consider someone to be a Jannati?” They remained silent and when they could answer, I said to them, “The answer is very simple. When a person brings faith on Allah and His Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him. When he believes in the Prophethood of the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him. When he is certain that the Qur’an is the Divine Word of Allah Almighty, when he believes in the Day of Judgement and that the deeds of people would be measured. When he believes in the reality of Jannah and Hell and reward and punishment, all of these things will make him into a believer?”
The replied yes, this would make a person be considered a believer.
I then asked, “Tell me, those who people enter the Jannati door at the blessed Darbaar of Baba Fareed – may Allah be pleased with him, do they also believe in these things or not? Obviously they also believe in all of these things and when they believe in these things, it means that they are people of Jannah. This is the reason that Baba Fareed – may Allah be pleased with him – has stated that no one will pass through these doors except pure believers.
“We have already established that these people have the correct beliefs, hence they are people of Jannah. At the same time, there is a hadith Shareef which is reported by Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah – may Allah be pleased with him – in the Bukhari Shareef wherein Allah Almighty has described that when a person becomes close to Him through the performance of Nawaafil, then the power of this person’s speech is in the Divine Control of the Allah Almighty, etc.
“Therefore, when Baba Fareed – may Allah be pleased with him – and other such Saints have mentioned these things about people entering Jannah, they are merely making it much easier for people. Hadrat Moulana Rumi – may Allah be pleased with him – has stated that when a tree can make the statement of ‘Anal Haqq’, then how is it impossible for a pious person to utter these words.
“When a tree speaking to Nabi Moosa – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – can become a manifestation of the Divine Being, how is impossible for human to become a source of this manifestation. In fact, such was the immense manifestation on this tree that Nabi Moosa – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – was actually commanded to remove his shoes when entering this area.”
