I’m hearing a lot of Quthubuzzaman these days. Can anyone please tell me what his speciality is?
I also heard people like Imam Shafi (r.a), Muhiyudheen Sheikh (r.a), etc were Quthubuzzamans of their time...
Can anyone please explain clearly?
Quthubuzzaman is the superiormost and the leader of all awlias of a time.. Its true that in many Sufi orders, the mureeds may claim their shaik to be Quthubuzzaman seeing the degree of themselves getting heightened by the shaik. And to a mureed his shaik should be superiormost to him... So i don't know whether that practice is wrong or not. Anyway Quthubuzzaman will exist in all eras, and then particularly its not Mahdi AS right now. Its true that many renowned Sunni scholars like Imam Bukhari R.A told Mahdi AS is already born. But Quthubul Aqthab Shaik Muhyuddeen Abdul Qadir jeelani R.A should also be then living at Mahdi ASs period but he was the Quthubuzzaman. That goes for many shaiks. Still to find the real Quthubuzzaman we cant listen to what mureeds say, coz they can exaggerate. But if a shaik proclaims himself as the quthub of the era, then we can agree he has greater chance of being the Quthubuzzaman. Coz the previous self proclaimed Quthubuzzamans did the same.
