KHATME KHWAJEGAAN

When a mureed is brought under the fold of a Sheikh/Murshid, then the role taken on by the Sheikh, is that of a physician. The Sheikh first makes a diagnosis of the mureed's spiritual condition, before prescribing to him suitable "medicine" which can be a remedy for his spiritual ailments. The medicine of the Shuyook for the mureed is taken from the "Science of Words" devised by the spiritual masters of the respective orders; which consists of special wazaaif for the treatment of specific spiritual ailments. A mureed is given a specific wazifa to read; ie: on an individual basis as prescribed by his Sheikh; and he may also be given permission to sit in a Halqa or circle of his fellow mureedeen to practice the spiritual exercise of "Khatme Khwajegaan".

Khatme Khwajegaan is a spiritual exercise consisting of Wazaaif, Aayaats of the Holy Quran, and certain divine attributive names of Allah; which are specially arranged by a patriarch saint of the spiritual order with a special numeral proportion attached; to bring about a desired result. By the repetition of certain words and phrases a definite result can be produced and found, in one's character and spiritual condition. Every vowel of every word of the wazifa has its psychologocal significance, and the composition of the words of the wazifa have a chemical and psychological effect on the mind and soul of the reader. The wazifa produces Noor ("light") which has certain spiritual characteristics, which has tremendous effects on the reader in the awakening of his spiritual faculties.

By pondering upon the meaning and "idea" behind the wazifa, and chanting it with sincerity and devotion; the eventual goal of Khatme Khwajegaan is to direct one's consciousness towards Allah and His Rasool (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), and to increase one's love for the Awliya Allah. Through this spiritual exercise the mureed is allowed to ponder upon the "ideas" behind the wazaaif and its implications; until this "idea" becomes a reality in one's life.

Etiquettes of Khatme Khwajegaan:

Khatme Khwajegaan can be read on a weekly or monthly basis; in a group or, individually - if one is given permission to do so. One should be with, wuzu, and a respectably posture, as well as utmost respect, should be maintained at all times. Each wazifa should be read with utmost concentration, sincerity and devotion. Towards the end of the sitting, the head of the group should supplicate to Allah and offer the sawaab as a "Hadiyya" (roughly translated as a 'gift') to the Holy Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), the Ambiyaa (alaihimus salaam), the Sahaaba-e-Kiraan (radi Allahu anhum), the Family of the Holy Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), the Taabaeen, Tabbe Taabaeen (radi Allahu anhum), the Shuhada (radi Allahu anhum), the Awliya Allah (radi Allahu anhum) and, specifically one's Sheikh.

N.B. One should not be under the impression that by offering this sawaab to our great leaders, that one will not obtain sawaab for this spiritual exercise. The reader who offers the sawaan to all our great leaders mentioned above, also qualifies for the same "Units" of sawaab. "The Recipients of the sawaab also make dua to Allah in Aalame Barzakh; that Allah grant the person who sent this Esaale Sawaab, the good fortune of tauba before his/her death". (HADITH) It is also important that the numerical values should not be changed, as the numerical values are fixed to provide a desired effect.

Khatme Khwajegaan differs from one Sheikh to another - this does not mean that one is better than the other! Competition between Salaasils and mureedeen, and comparisons between Shuyook are futile exercises; and are not the aim and object of Tasawwuf! Each Sheikh will compile a Khatme Khwajegaan which he personally finds most suitable.
