Sayyid Muhammad ‘Alawi al-Maliki

By Mostafa Badawi

Just before dawn on Friday the 15th of Ramadan of this year the Muslim community lost one of its most eminent scholars and men of Allah. Sayyid Muhammad ‘Alawi al-Maliki came from a long line of eminent scholars...

May Allah have mercy on his soul and perfume his resting place. Ameen.

Our hotel, the Dar al-Sa’adah, overlooked the Meccan Holy Mosque. Once while walking from the hotel to the Great Mosque, I longed to visit Sayed Muhammad ibn 'Alawi al-Maliki at his residence. He had taught various Islamic subjects from his home in Rusayfa, Makkah al-Mukarramah. I did not want to go there while the Sayed was not there, though.
I looked towards the Masjid al-Haram and imploring Allah, The God of the East and the West for direction, I said: “Yaa Allah. Wys vir my ’n teken kanala.” (“O Allah, please show me a sign.”).
Suddenly, a deluge of spiritual rain fell from the heavens, its expanse covering the entire Masjid al-Haram.
Suleiman, Dawood and I, together with many of the ’Ibaad-u-Ragmaan Qadiri Jamaa’ah males went to Maliki Street, Rusayfa that evening. Sayed Muhammad ibn 'Alawi al-Maliki was at home, sure enough.
That sign showed to me the status that the Sayed enjoyed in the Sight of God . May Allah, The One Who Loves His believing slaves, Always Watch Over Sayed Muhammad ibn 'Alawi al-Maliki and the people of his house.

One Wednesday evening in May 1997, al-Sayed Muhammad ibn 'Alawi ibn 'Abbas ibn 'Abdul 'Aziz al-Hasani al-Maliki al-Makki had said to us (in Arabic) in York Road Woodstock: “Allah will grant all of you the Haj.”
“Insha-Allah,” some chorused.
“Amen,” rang from other members of the Jamaa’ah.

Allah, The One Who Provides for His Slaves from sources he never could imagine, Had Brought the words of the Sayed to fruition.

The Day of Wuquf, 9th Dhul Hijjah 1422 AH, was on Thursday, 21 February 2002. I had another Haj in a million, Alhamdu-lillaah.
