The following are details of groups of Awliya living on earth at any give time:

1.There are at any given time 4000 Awliya living on earth. They are not known and recognized by the general public. In fact, amongst them one does not know the other and they themselves are not aware of the validity of their actions and devotion.

All these are hidden from them and the general public.

2.Three hundred(300) from this group are statesmen involved in the administration of this world. They control all transaction in this Duniyah. They are the leaders of all Pious people in the Divine Court of Allah Ta'Ala. They are known as AKHYAR.

3.Amongst these 300,there are 40 who are known as ABDAL-BUDALA.

4.Amongst these 40,seven(7) are ABRAR.

5.Amongst these 7,four(4) are AWTAD.

6.Amongst these 4,three(3) are NO'QABAH.

7.Amongst these 3,one(1) is known as the GHAWTH or QUTB. He is the most senior of them all and the Head and Chairperson of the spiritual assembly.

Shaykh al-Akbar(ra) in his famous Futuhat al-Makkiyyah records in the 157th section of the 31st chapter as follows: The seven(7) ABRAR are known as ABDAL, who are appointed the Wilayat(control) of the seven(7) sections of this earth.They are seven(7) selected ones and blessed with enormous duty by Allah Ta'Ala.They protect these seven regions with great exactitude.Shaykh al-Akbar(ra) also says that he met them in the scared Haram of Makkah al-Mukarrama.He greeted them and they replied to him and also had a discussion with them.Shaykh al-Akbar(ra) states that he had not found anyone more attractive and handsome than them neither had he seem anyone more absorbed in IBADAH than them.Shaykh then said:"Yes!I did certainly meet one person similar to them in a town called Konya."

Qutbanniyya By Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani

To accomplish these three standards of conduct is to reach the level of Qutbanniyya, to become a Qutub.

The scholars are the inheritors of the prophets.

This does not refer to those scholars who gained their knowledge from books, but rather those Aqtab to whom Allah opened these six powers in their hearts, and the knowledge of their seven personal names.

To be continued .......Insha Allah

Bro, there are many AwliyaAllah around the world. There are pictures of them. Even the Abdals,some are known to men some arent. Example one well known Abdal is the late Shaykh Ahmed Habbal Al Rifai of Damascus who every scholar of Syria knew about

Shaykh Ahmad Habbal Al Rifai A Rare Pearl Of The Ummah





And here is some videos of more AwliyaAllah from around the world. Amongst them there might be some who are Qutbs, some who are Abdals and some who are Nuqabah etc..

The existance of Abdals are mentioned in numerous Hadiths. I quote you one or two:

From Umm Salamah: “Disagreement will occur at the death of a Khalif and a man of the people of Madina will come quickly to Makka. Some of the people of Makka will come to him…and swear allegiance to him between the Corner (Rukn) and Maqam. An expeditionary force will be sent against him from Syria…when the people see that, the Abdal of Syria and the best people of Iraq will come to him and swear allegiance to him… Recorded by Abu Dawud (Kitab al-Mahdi, #3737), Imam Ahmad (6:316), Ibn Abi Shayba (8:609), Abdur- Razzaq (11:371 #20769), Tabarani (M. Awsa', 2:35 #1153, 9:176 #9459, and M. Kabir, 23:296, 389-90), Hakim (4:431), Ibn Hibban (15:158-59), Abu Ya’la (12:370 #6940 Hasan), Ishaq ibn Rahawayh, and Ibn ‘Asakir in Tarikh Dimashq (1:292 93). Mundhiri, Ibn Hibban, Hakim, Dhahabi, and Haythami (7:315) said it is Sahih


Abu Darda’ said: “When Prophethood ended – and they were the supports (Awtad) of the earth – Allah substituted their places with 40 men from the nation of Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon him), who are named “Abdal” (the Substitutes). Not one of them dies except that Allah replaces him with another one to take his place, and they are now the supports of this earth. The hearts of 30 of them contain the same certainty (yaqin) which Sayyidina Ibrahim (asws) had. They did not succeed or rise above the other people with much fasting or prayer…but rather through being truthful in their scrupulousness, having noble intentions, having sound wholesome hearts, and giving all the Muslims sincere counsel, desiring by that the Pleasure of Allah, with patient forbearance, and a merciful core (of being), and humility without being meek. They do not curse anyone, or harm anyone, nor do they see themselves as being higher or nobler than anyone under them, or envy those above them. They do not fake their humility, nor fake their being dead to the world, nor are they ostentatiously impressed with themselves. They do not love the world, nor love for its sake...”Recorded by Hakim Tirmidhi (Asl #51), and Ibn Abi Dunya (K. Awliya, #57) from Abu-z Zinad.


From ‘Ali: “The Abdal are in Syria, and they are 40 men. Whenever one of them dies, Allah substitutes another in his place. By means of them, Allah brings down the rain, gives victory over enemies, and diverts punishment from the people of Syria.”Recorded by Imam Ahmad (Musnad, 1:112 #854 and Fada’il as-Sahaba, #1675), Diya’ al-Maqdisi in al- Mukhtara (2:110), Ibn ‘Asakir in Tarikh Dimashq (1:289, 296), Hakim Tirmidhi in Nawadir al-Usul (Asl #222), and Muhammad ibn Abdul-Hadi in Fada’il al-Sham (p. 43 #15). Shurayh narrated from Miqdad, who is older than ‘Ali. Munawi in his Fayd al-Qadir, Haythami (10:62 #16671), Sakhawi (Maqasid #8), and Suyuti (Jami’ as- Saghir #3035) said it is Hasan, and it has over ten routes of transmission from ‘Ali as stated by Munawi.

Belief in Qutb, Ghawth and Abdal

Q: In defense against those who believe that Islam is devoid of spiritual ranks of merit, mysticism, or miracles; what is the basis for belief concerning the awliya and their hierarchy? What is agreed upon as regards their existence and the existence of the Qutb?

Wa alaykum as-Salam:

The Holy Qur'an explicitly mentions the Awliya and describes them as the Believers who fear Allah:

أَلا إِنَّ أَوْلِيَاء اللّهِ لاَ خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلاَ هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ

Behold! verily on the friends of Allah there is no fear, nor shall they grieve;[10:62]

So we must all agree that there are Awliya and that they exist co-terminally, which means co-everlastingly, with the Religion.

Next, the Holy Qur'an explicitly mentions that the Believers have "levels" (darajaat), and that "He raises" (yarfa`u) some of the Believers above others:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِذَا قِيلَ لَكُمْ تَفَسَّحُوا فِي الْمَجَالِسِ فَافْسَحُوا يَفْسَحِ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ وَإِذَا قِيلَ انشُزُوا فَانشُزُوا يَرْفَعِ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَالَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْعِلْمَ دَرَجَاتٍ وَاللَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرٌ

O ye who believe! When ye are told to make room in the assemblies, (spread out and) make room: (ample) room will Allah provide for you. And when ye are told to rise up, rise up. Allah will rise up, to (suitable) ranks (and degrees), those of you who believe and who have been granted (mystic) Knowledge. And Allah is well- acquainted with all ye do. [58:11]

and that:

وَفَوْقَ كُلِّ ذِي عِلْمٍ عَلِيم

"above every knowledgeable one there is one more knowledgeable," [12:76]:

and that "those whom Allah has particularly graced" are defined as "the Prophets, the Siddiqs, the Shuhada', and the Righteous" in that order:

وَمَن يُطِعِ اللّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ مَعَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمَ اللّهُ عَلَيْهِم مِّنَ النَّبِيِّينَ وَالصِّدِّيقِينَ وَالشُّهَدَاء وَالصَّالِحِينَ وَحَسُنَ أُولَـئِكَ رَفِيقًا

[4:69]

and that some Prophets were exalted above others. So we must all agree that there is a hierarchy of Believers in general, and hierarchies of Awliya and Prophets in particular.

The early scholars of hadith were very interested in the topic of the Awliya' and they gathered not only the hadiths but even non-Prophetic accounts about their states and miraculous gifts, and even dreams. For example, Ibn Abi al-Dunya's al-Awliya and the compilations respectively entitled al-Awliya' and Karaamaat al-Awliya' by the two Hanbalis al-Khallal and al-Lalika'i, as well as Abu Nu`aym's renowned Hilyat al-Awliya.

These books are available to us but ignorance is human and people tend to be the enemies of what they don't know, including "those who believe that Islam is devoid of spiritual ranks of merit... or miracles." The Holy Prophet, upon him blessings and peace, said that the only cure for the malady of ignorance is to ask.

The Companion Sufyan ibn `Uyayna said, "The learned scholar does not care for people's positions or feelings when he disseminates the Divine wisdom; if you accept he praises Allah, and if you reject he praises Allah." (As for the term "mysticism," it is best to steer clear of it since it is largely misunderstood to mean something ethereal or purely spiritual and tends to betray the fact that the Awliya are the most practical and act-oriented people of humankind.)

As for a specific terminology for the Awliya' the Prophet, upon him blessings and peace, did use certain terms such as Abdal (substitutes), or certain qualifications of intercession such as the hadiths in which he refers to certain arch-intercessors such as our liegelords `Uthman ibn `Affan and Uways al-Qarani. Ibn `Asakir in his Tarikh (51:282) narrates with his chain that when Imam al-Shafi`i finished memorizing the Qur'an he said to himself: "You have obtained the Qutb al-A`zam" i.e. the greatest axis or authority around which the Religion revolves.

However, the terms "ghawth", "qutb" and the like to mean individuals among the Awliya' may have been devised as a convention among later scholars (see, for example, the treatises by al-Suyuti in al-Hawi lil-Fatawi and Ibn `Abidin in his Rasa'il) and are not binding upon the Muslims as terminology. As the scholars say, "la mushahata fil-mustalah," meaning: "Don't nag about how we call things."

No doubt! Verily, the Auliyâ' of Allâh [i.e. those who believe in the Oneness of Allâh and fear Allâh much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which he has forbidden), and love Allâh much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)], no fear shall come upon them nor shall they grieve. (surah Yunus :62)


From the tafsir of Tustari(Sahl al-Tustarī’s) ---

Sahl said:
They are those whom the Messenger of God described, saying, ‘When they are seen, God is remembered.’(Ibn Ḥanbal, al-Musnad, vol. 6, p. 459; Tirmidhī, Nawādir al-uṣūl, vol. 4, pp. 80, 86.)
They are those who strive in God’s cause, who outstrip others in their [journeying] towards Him, and whose actions are constantly in conformity (muwāfaqa).(That is, in conformity with God’s will.)

Those are the true believers [8:4].

And he [Sahl] said:
All goodness comes together in four things, and through these they [believers] become ‘Substitutes’ (abdāl):5 an empty stomach, seclusion from people, the night vigil, and observing silence.
He was asked why the Substitutes (abdāl) are called Substitutes. He answered:
It is because they substitute their spiritual states (aḥwāl) [one for another]. They have submitted their bodies to the vigour (ḥīl) in their innermost secrets (asrār).6 Then they move from state (ḥāl) to state, and from knowledge (ʿilm) to knowledge, so that they are constantly increasing in the knowledge of that which is between them and their Lord.

He was asked, ‘Who are more excellent, the Mainstays (awtād) or the Substitutes (abdāl)?’ He answered, ‘The mainstays’. Then he was asked, ‘And how is that?’ He replied:
It is because the Mainstays have already arrived and their principles (arkān) are well established, whereas the Substitutes move from state to state.

5 -According to Sufi tradition, the abdāl or budalāʾ (pl. of badal meaning literally ‘substitute’), constitute one degree or rank in the spiritual hierarchy of saints or mystics after the time of the Prophet. They are said to be unknown to the generality of believers, but have a powerful influence in preserving the order of the universe. Sufi literature varies concerning both the different ranks that make up this hierarchy and the numbers within each of these ranks, but one that is generally agreed upon is as follows: at the apex of the hierarchy there is one ‘Axis’ or ‘Pole’ (quṭb), also known as ‘Succour’ (ghawth), who is the axis mundi or spiritual ‘pole’ of the universe; after the Pole come the two ‘Foremost’ or ‘Assistants’ (imāmān); below them come five ‘Mainstays’ (awtād) or ‘Pillars’ or ‘Props’ (ʿumud); then come the seven ‘Incomparables’ (afrād); then the Substitutes (abdāl); and so on down to ten ranks in total. The Substitutes in particular are mentioned in a number of ḥadīths, for which see: Ibn Ḥanbal, al-Musnad (Cairo, 1895), vol 1, p. 112; and Tirmidhī, Nawādir al-uṣūl, vol. 1, p. 165; vol. 2, p. 103. For a discussion of this hierarchy see, I. Goldziher, ‘Abdāl,’ EI2, vol. i, p. 94, and J. Chabbi, ‘Abdāl’ EIr, vol. iii, pp. 173–4.

The vast majority of Scholars from the Ahl as sunnah hold the view that Abdaals do exist. In fact, Hafidh Ibn as Salah has declared that there is consensus on this view. Hereunder follows the names of just a few illustrious Scholars who explicitly mentioned their views [Also refer to the introduction of Allamah Suyuti’s ‘Al Khabr ad daal’(Dar al usool)]. Check out the links:
