Joint Meeting of Ahlul-Bayt in Pakistan, Shuyukh of Qadiri Order Denounce Tahir-ul Qadri




Pakistan – Three joint meetings were recently held in Pakistan attended by descendants of the Holy Last Messenger (peace and blessings upon him, his family and descendents), Mashayikh of the Qadiri Order, and members of the esteemed Gilani family. This meeting was officiated by the Head of the Qadiri Order, His Eminence, Sultan El-Sheikh Syed Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani—Vice Chancellor of International Quranic Open University, the Abdul-Qadir Gilani Institute of Sufi Sciences, and custodian of the Shrine of Hazrat Mian Mir Qadri; a descendent of Ghawth al-A’zam Sheikh Abdul-Qadir Gilani, founder of the Qadiri Order. At conclusion of this meeting, after meticulously scrutinizing of all evidence and arguments, all attendees present unanimously denounced Mohammed Tahir (alias “Tahir-ul-Qadri”) as a fake Qadiri, and is thus disowned by Ahlul-Bayt (direct descendents of the Holy Last Messenger, sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and the Mashayikh of the Qadiri Order. 


Tahir’s apparent and hidden relationships and interactions with Shi’a—mostly Rawafid, known for shameless cursing and slander of the Holy Companions and Wives of the Holy Last Messenger, peace and blessings of Allah upon them—are part of his long list of controversial and un-Islamic activities giving further cause as to the reason he has been denounced by the Qadiri Order. 

The customs and practices of the Rawafid have been detailed by the founder of the Qadiri Order—Ghaus al-A’zam Sheikh Abdul-Qadir Gilani, blessings of Allah Ta’ala upon him—in his book, Al-Ghunya li-Tālibī Tarīq al-Haqq. In the section titled “Al-Farq bayn al-Firaq” (The Differences Between the Sects), Ghaus al-A’zam (may Allah be pleased with him) expounds upon the deviant beliefs and practices of the Rawafid and their sub-sects in great detail, concluding with the condemnation: “They are guilty of falsehood! Doom upon them until the Day of Resurrection!” 

The High Court of Pakistan in Lahore declared him as a person who is dishonest, greedy, a liar, and “capable of causing drama,” more than twenty years ago. And yet, a week ago, the whole world witnessed a pre-arranged drama orchestrated by Tahir wherein the shameless promotion of himself using a mysteriously high financial budget pervaded all of Pakistan. His power-hungry scheme nearly caused massive bloodshed, for his plan called for “extreme measures” if his demands were not met. These “extreme measures” included the forceful occupying of a government building in Islamabad, a potential disaster pitting people in Pakistan—who simply want an improved quality of life—against Pakistani military forces. 


The head of the Qadiri Order reiterates that this fake Sheikh—whom the Qadiri Mashayikh and Ahlul-Bayt have disowned—should not be let back into Canada, as he has demonstrated how he is capable of instigating disorder.
