THE LAST SERMON OF KHAWAJA MUINUDDIN CHISTI (R.A)

( KHAWAJA GHARIEB NAWAAZ )



The philosophy of sufism is best summed up in the words of the final khutbah (sermon) of Khawaja Muinuddin Chisti (r.a) which he delivered to his followers just one month before his demise.
The Khawaja Garib Nawaz said:

"Love all and hate none
More talk of peace will avail you naught
Mere talk of God and religion will not take you far
Bring out all of the latent powers of your being
and reveal the full magnificance of your mortal self
Be surcharged with peace and joy.And scatter them wherever you are
and wherever you go.Be a blazing fire of truth.
Be a beauteous blossom of Love.And be a soothing balm of peace
With your spiritual light dispel the darkness of ignorance
dissolve the clouds of discord and war
and spread goodwill, peace and harmony among the people
Never seek any help, charity or favours from anybody except God
Never go to the courts of kings, but never refuse to bless and help the
needy and the poor, the widow, and the orphan, if theycome to youy door
This is your mission, to serve the people
Carry it out dutifully and courageously
so that I, as your PIR-O-MURSHID
may not be ashamed of any shortcomings on your part
before the Almighty Allah and our Holy Predecessors
in the Sufi Order ( Silsila ) on the day of Judgement "
