Shaikh ‘Umar al-Qahiri- Know as Sadaqatullah Appa (சதகதுல்லாஹ் அப்பா)

The zealous missionary and elegant Sufi poet, Shaikh ‘Umar b. ‘Abdu-l Qadir al-Qahiri, popularly known as ‘Umar Waliyullah (உமர் வலியுல்லாஹ்) in the Arwi region, was a reputed scholar and a devout Sufi. His grandmother was a daughter of the renowned Arwi Saint,Shaikh Sadaqatu-Llah b. Sulaiman al-Qahiri, known more commonly as Sadaqatullah Appa (சதகதுல்லாஹ் அப்பா).

His Education

He mastered the Arabic language and was well versed in theology [aqidah], jurisprudence [fiqh] and spirituality [tasawwuf]. He attained his early education and was initiated into theQadiri path by the venerable Shaikh Muhammad al-Nuski, popularly known as Pal-Kudi Appa(பால்-குடி அப்பா). He was also initiated into the Qadiri path and anointed as deputy [khalifa] by the sage and saint from Hadramawt, Sayyid Jifri Tangal.

His Travels

He journeyed extensively to spread the message of Islam. He also went to perform Hajj and Ziyarah of Habib al-Mustafa, Allah bless him and give him peace, in Madinatu-l Munawwarah. Here he met the scholar and saint, Sayyid Muhsin al-Mukaibali. In his company, he witnessed unveilings and experienced spiritual openings. After five years in the city of the beloved Prophet - first as teacher then as principal of an institution there - he returned back to his birthplace in South India, Kayalpatnam.
His return back home marked the start of another crucial phase of his spiritual development and wayfaring. One day, while leading the congregational prayer at the Makhdum Mosque in Kayalpatnam, he heard the call from the pole of the age [Qutbu-z Zaman], Sayyid Muhammad Bukhari Tangal of Cannore, Kerala. He duly set off in search of his final spiritual master, who embraced him with open arms and initiated him into the Qadiri path and appointed him as his inheritor and a spiritual guide in his own right. Following this, Sayyid Muhammad Bukhari Tangal made a ceremonial visit to Kayalpatnam where he was warmly welcomed at the seashore by the people of the town who humbly gave bai’ah to him.
Following these momentous incidents, on the instructions of his Spiritual Master, he went to the Dutch East Indies in 1177 AH. He established a number of madrasas (known as Pesantharan) in the jungles of Aceh Daru-s Salam and other parts of Sumatra (present day Indonesia). Whilst there, he met many mystics resulting in much mutual benefit. He ended up spending fourteen years in missionary activities in the region. This intense period of continued meditation, spiritual practices and deep prayers resulted in spiritual openings beyond description. Allah bestowed upon him Divine Grace [tawfiq] and exhibited many miraculous exploits [karamat] at his hands, including curing people of their illnesses.

His Writings

On return to India from the Far East, he began composing spiritual odes [qasa'id] of utmost elegance on mystical themes. Twelve of his stupendous compositions have been collated in two anthologies, Nuru-l ‘Aynayn and Mukhammas Dhukhru-l Ma’ad. The most acclaimed of his works is Qasidatu-l Allafa-l Alif. The amazing lines of this poem speak of the importance of loving the holy Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), necessity of the spiritual path, perils of earthly life, amongst others.
The beauty of this 31-couplet composition lies in the fact that each of the 29 couplets between the opening and closing verses begin with a letter from the Arabic alphabet in order. In everyline, the starting letter is repeated between ten to fifteen times. Another literary feature of this masterpiece is that, sets of words (two words), identifical in form (both having the same letters in the same order), are skilfully used in the same verse with differing meanings to convey highly advanced Sufi thoughts.
Several commentaries have been written on this ode. The most comprehensive being ‘Awarifu-l Ma’arif by Shaikh ‘Abdu-r Rahman al-Naqshbandi which was last published by Ibrahim Kutty of Tanur, Kerala, in 1975. The renowed scholar of Abiramam, Shaikh ‘Abdu-l Qadir has also written a concise commentary. Another poem of his that begins with the words, Ilahi kam tubaqqini [O my God, for how long are you going to keep me alive!] is regularly recited in the Arwi region with much fervour and devotion.
Some of his poetic compositions include:
  • Ghara’ibu-n Nizam
  • Hidayatu-l Aghniya
  • Bahru-s Sirr
  • Sirru-sh Shaikh
  • Shikayatu-l Gharam ila Hamimi-l Maram
  • Tariqu-l Wasl
  • Mubaya ‘atush Shaikh
  • Basharatu-Llah
  • Kanzu-l Jinan
  • Malil ‘Ubaidi ma Yasha’u Yudabbir
  • Nizamu-l Mada’ih

His Characteristics

His state of being was such that he was regularly found in spiritual trance and absorption. Nevertheless, he never failed to fulfill his obligatory duties.  He drew a large number of followers to the Qadiri path by virtue of his knowledge, piety and exemplary character. He firmly believed that loving the holy Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) was the pre-requisite to climbing the spiritual ladder and keeping oneself off aberrations.

His Passing

After a life spent in worshipful devotion and service to humanity, he left the earthly realm on 14th Dhu-l Qa’da 1216 A.H / 1804 A.D. Shaikh ‘Abdu-r Rahman of Kayalpatnam has composed an eulogy [marthiyyah] of 94 lines on him. His life and works have also been discussed by Sayyid Muhammad ‘Abdu-l Qadir in the manaqib entitled, Tal’atu-l Qamar fi Mawlidi-sh shaikhi ‘Umar.
May Allah be well pleased with Shaikh ‘Umar al-Qahiri, sanctify his secret and illuminate his resting abode. May He forgive us and bless us all for his sake.

Arusiyyatul Qadiriyyah( Twareeqath)

The ‘Arūsiyyah branch of the Qādiriyyah path (Arabic: الطريقة العروسية القادرية Aṭ-Ṭarīqatu l-‘Arūsiyyatu l-Qādiriyyah) of Islamic spirituality (Arabic: تصوّف Tasawwuf, syn. Sufism) is a Sūfi way that is followed in South India, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates and other parts of the world.
The ‘Arūsi way originated and took shape during the early part of the 18th century under the watchful gaze of scholars and savants from the Arwi region (modern-day South India and Sri Lanka). They inherited the mantle of the Qādiri path from Indian and Arab spiritual guides [1]
This branch of the Qādiri path derives its name from the 19th century renewer of the Islamic faith (مجدد Mujaddid) from the Arwi region, Shaikh Sayyid Muḥammad b. Aḥmad Lebbai, who is known by the Arabic and Tamil epithets Imāmu l-‘Arūs(Arabic: إمام العروس) and Māppillai Lebbai ‘Ālim (Tamil: மாப்பிள்ளை லெப்பை ஆலிம்) respectively[1].
The present spiritual guide (Arabic: مرشد Murshid) of the order is Shaikh (Dr) Taikā Shu’aib b. Aḥmad ‘Abd al-Qādir aṣ-Ṣiddīqī[2]. His son, Taikā Naṣir b. Taikā Shu’aib aṣ-Ṣiddīqī, is the appointed deputy and successor-in-waiting (Arabic: خليفةkhalīfah).



The spiritual masters of the ‘Arūsi way have written substantially on the principles and propriety of the spiritual way. Shaikh (Dr) Taikā Shu’aib has summarized them as the “Fundamentals of the Way” in the covenant that one takes when the oath of allegiance (Arabic: بيعة Bai’ah) is uttered:
  • to perform with excellence all that God has mandated
  • to abstain with contentment all that God has prohibited
  • to beseech swiftly for God’s forgiveness when transgressions (mistakes, wrongs, or sins) occur; however minor or major
  • to recite consistently the stipulated litany of the order (Arabic: ورد الطريقWirdu ṭ-Ṭarīq) and other prescribed recitals


The daily private litany of the order comprises of the following 3 recitals [3] that must be recited the stipulated minimum number of times every waking day:
لا إله إلا الله ١٠٠
Lā ilāha illa-llāh (100 times)
"There is no god (worthy of worship) except Allah"
محمد رسول الله ١
[Sayyidunā] Muḥammadu r-Rasūlu l-lāh [ṣalla-llāhu ‘alaihi wa sallam] (1 time)
"[Our liege-lord] Muḥammad is the Messenger of Allah [upon him be blessings and peace]"
اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكْ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ وَصَحْبِهِ عَدَدَ مَافِي عِلْمِ الله صَلاَةً دَآئِمَةً بِدَوَامِ مُلْكِ الله ١٠
Allāhumma ṣalli wa sallim wa bārik ‘alā Sayyidinā Muḥammadin wa Ālihi wa Ṣahbihi adada mā fī ‘ilmi l-lāhi ṣalātan dā’imatan bi dawāmi Mulki l-lāh (10 times)
"O Allah, shower benedictions, peace and blessings upon our liege-lord Muḥammad, his family and companions, in the number that is in Thy Knowledge such that the benedictions may continue forever eternal as Thy Kingdom."
It is desirable to begin the litany with the following recitals [2]:
أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم
A’ūdhu billāhi min ash-shaitāni r-rajīm
"I seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the accursed"
  • The Basmala (Arabic: بسملة):
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
b-ismi-llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm
"In the name of Allah, the Universally Merciful, the Singularly Compassionate"
  • The Divine Longing
Ilāhi anta maqsūdī, wa riḍāka maṭlūbī
"My Lord, You are my Aspiration; Your Divine Pleasure is my Ardent Desire"
There is no designated time of the day in which one must perform the litany although the optimum times will be:
  • During the last third of the night after the recommended Tahajjud prayer (Arabic: صلات التهجد Ṣalātu t-Tahajjud)
  • After the obligatory sunrise prayer (Arabic: صلات الفجر Ṣalātu l-Fajr)
  • After the obligatory night prayer (Arabic: صلات العشاء Ṣalātu l-‘Ishā’) before retiring to bed
In addition to the above litany, it is recommended to regularly recite the devotional ode (Arabic: قصيدة Qaṣīdah), Shajaratun Fātiriyyah wa Silsilatun Qādiriyyah [3]wherein the intercession of the Masters of the 'Arusi way is sought to attain one's spiritual aspirations.


One of the characteristics of the ‘Arūsi way is the public gatherings of remembrance (Arabic: مجالس الذكر Majālisa dh-Dhikr) where the liturgical work, “Ratib Jalaliyya” (Arabic: راتبة جلالية , Rātibatun Jalāliyyah), is recited in congregation. The work was compiled by Shaikh Sayyid Muḥammad b. Aḥmad Lebbai. Traditionally, the gatherings are held on Thursday and Sunday evenings after sunset to commemorate Friday and Monday nights respectively. This is in accordance with the Islamic lunar calendar where the day commences after sunset.


The initiatic chain (Arabic: سلسلة Silsilah) of the ‘Arūsi branch of the Qādiri path is as follows:
  • The Lord of Truth and Sustainer of the Worlds, ALLAH
  • The Arch-Angel and Truthful Spirit, Jibrā’īl | Jibrīl (English: Gabriel)

Great Saint Sayyed Moula Muhammad Bukhary Thangal (QS)

His Holiness Bukhary Thangal was born in 1144 A. H. (1731 AD) in a beautiful Island called ANDROTH in the Indian Ocean of the Western Coast of Kerala. His real name was seyyid Muhammad. His father was Seyyid Ahmed a descendant of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Rasool Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam). 

He belonged to the famous clan of the house of Bukhary. After an illustrious service in the cause of Education, Spiritual knowledge and Social Service, His Holiness departed from this world at the age of 63 in 1207 AH (1792 AD) and is enshrined in Cannore[Kannur City] Kerala. His Holiness travellewd to various parts of India propageting Religion and morality to the people of various faiths, and especially to the Muslim. 

A deputy of Bukhar Thangal His Holiness Abdul Quadhir Valiyullah, a missionary in those parts is enshrined in Malacca and is the Maternal Grand Father of His Holiness Seyyid Muhammad Ma'apilli Lebbai Alim well-known as Imamul Aroos, founder of Aroosiyyathul Quadhiriyyah World Sufistic Order in South East Asia, including Sri Lanka and India (1232- 1316 AH/1816 - 1898 AD). 
Imamul Araqs served in Sri Lanka throughout the 19th century and was instrumental in erecting and refurbishing more than 355 Thakkiyas in Sri Lanka, most of them at his own expenses. He introduced a novel method of imparting the religion on short-term and long-term basis. While writing detailed books on Arabic Language on long-term basis he was the first to translate into Arabic-Tamil (Arwi), these religious books as a short-term method for beginners, and starting Arabic Colleges. Among them, Madrasathul Bari at Galbokke Weligama was the first Arabic College established in Sri Lanka (1884 AD.1302 AH) after the Portuguese onslaught.
The foundation for the Maradana Mosque was laid by Allama Imamul Aroos Ma'apillai Alim in 1840 AD/1256. Further, it has to be taken into consideration that, among the Mosques in the City of Colombo i.e. Bukhary Thaika - Forbes Lane, Devatagaha Mosque - Cinnamon Gardens, Magnamus Suadha Thaika - Old Moor Street, Layards Broadway Thakkiya, The Thakkiya just behind R. Premadasa Stadium, Kalandhar Sahib Thakkiya behind Kaleel's Nursing Home Maradana, Masjid Muhiyyaddeen (Mina Mosque) Dematagoda, Katakkalamarathady Thakkiya, Clifton Lane and The Temple Road Thakkiya were built under the aegis of Imamul Aroos Ma'apillai Kebbai Alim. 

His two illustrious Sons Al Quthub Seyyid Abdul Quadhir popularly known as Khalwath Nayagam and Al Quthub Sheikh Shahul Hameed well known as Jalwath Nayagam greatly contributed to the Spiritual and Social welfare to the people of Sri Lanka and Managed the Thakkiyas/Madrases and Mosques established by their father. His Grand Son His Holiness Thaika Ahmad Abdul Quadhir Valiyullah, very popularly known as Periya Sheikh Nayagam followed their footsteps and was instrumental in further constructing Thakkiyas in remote areas of Sri Lanka, which is continued to be followed by his Son Al Haj as Sheikh Afdhalul Ulama Moulavi Fazi, Aroosi Dr. Thaika Shu'aib Alim B.A. Hons. M.A. PhD. D.Litt (Jalali). 
Bukhary Thangal was very bold, emphatic and at the same time very eloquvant and gentle in imparting the Spiritual thoughts in the minds of the people with his strong exhortation. It is said that more than 400,000 people have entered the right path upon his preaching based on the Holy Qur'an and the teachings of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam. Bukhary Thangal held severe divine powers since his childhood. He exposed such powers on various occasions. 

Bukhary Thaika was established by Imamul Aroos in memory of his Holy Saint with the unstinted support and co-operation extended by his disciple Marhoom Muhammad Haniffa Ibnu Wappu Marikkar Khaleefathul Bukhary, popularly known as Haniffa Bass at Forbes Lane Maradana Colombo 10 in the year 1881 (1299 - m AH) to serve the noble cause started by Bukhary Thagal for the past 122 years. 

Special ceremonies are being conducted on the 3rd day of Shawwal (Day after Eid ul Fitr) each year in commemoration of His Holiness Bukhary Thangal.
The 216th year commemoration which will be held on a grand scale on Sunday 5th January 2003 under the distinguished patronage of His Holiness Al Haj As Sheikh Thaika Ahmad Nasir Alim (Jalali) Son of His Holiness Al Haj As Sheikh Afdhalul Ulama Dr. Thaika Shu'aib Alim the sixth deputy of Bukhary Thangal and the present head of Aroosiyyathul Quadhiriyyah World Sufistic Order at the Ratheeb Hall of Al Masjidul Bukhary Thaika, No. 25, Forbes Lane, Maradana Colombo 10. The Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation will air live broadcast from 10.00 a.m. to 11.30 a.m. 

The great adventures of the famous warrior Hyder Ali of Mysore was checked by the faiths of Bukhary Thangal. Devastation and panics of the war let loose the Western part of India was averted by the efforts of Bukhary Thangal, in the 18th century. Hyder Ali was fascinated by the Spiritual Supremacy and charm of Bukhary Thangal and became his devoted disciple. He pledged under the hands of Bukhary Thangal that he would conduct no more expansionist war. 
The whole world is aware of the Statesmanship and bravery of the great Tippu Sulthan who was the first freedom fighter in the Indian soil and fought bravely and fiercely to woost the British Imperialists from India. Tippu Sulthan even became his deputy in the Spiritual field. 
Another great Saint of Tamil Na'adu His Holiness Umar Valiyullah of Kayalpattanam (1162 - 1216 AH/1748 - 1801 AD) went to dense forest of Indonesia known as ATCHE Island on the command of his Spiritual Master Bukhary Thangal, stayed there for 14 years amid too much hardship, among the Tribals, Nomads, Pegans and brought about 11 Million people into the right path. The religious schools and colleges established by Umar Valiyullah are still serving in the Malayan Archipelago on the basis of the Arabic curriculum started by him. They are still in existence. 

Imam al Aroos was the third deputy and spiritual successor to Bukhary Thangal and was the greatest spiritual figure after the devastation of Portuguese.
It has to be noted with great concern when there was a dire need of a place of worship for the Muslims of Colombo, the leading Muslims of that era found a place a place in the heart of the City of Colombo i.e. Maradana (now known as Maradana Mosque) and invited the most respected Saint at that time Sadaquathullah Appa, (Sadaqthullahil Qahiri.RA)the father-in-law of this luminary and the second deputy of Bukhary Thangal, who could not accede to this request and directed him to attend.
