Know About Rifai Silsila...
The Rifa'i order (also Rufa'i, Rifa'iyya,Rifa'iya) الرفاعية
is an eminent Sufi order founded by Ahmed ar-Rifa'i and developed in the Lower Iraq marshlands between Wasit and Basra. The Rifa'iyya had its greatest following until the 15th century C.E. when it was overtaken by the Qadiri order. Presently the order is said to maintain particular influence in Cairo, Egypt. Its distinctive features include walking on hot coals and consuming live snakes.
Ahmed er-Rifai's family comes from Husayn ibn Ali, the son of Ali, at the side of his mother. On the other hand, at the side of his father, his lineage which goes to prophet Muhammad is as follows:
master of the community, husband of Fatimah who is the base of all Imams, a relative of the prophet, Ali;
Imam of Muslims, the chief of the mumins (believers in Islam) who tried and liked with several troubles and calamities, the martyr of the Battle of Karbala, Hussein;
Imam Zayn al-Abidin;
Imam Muhammad al-Baqir;
Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq; Imam Musa al-Kadhim; Imam Ibrahim el-Mürteza; es-Seyyid ikinci Musa;

He is from the Sufi Madari Malang Order of Makanpur..,,every since I told him that I too have taken the oath of the Malang , he calls me his Peerbhai.. though he is old enough to be my teacher .
Death Is Only A Step Away From The Shadow Of Your Existence, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
attached to your
like a lens
living in transit
as you fall
as you rise
he holds you
you fall ..the
love for all
at his beck and call
come be healed
touch his wall
in shawls ..fragrance
of loban flower stalls
haji malang for the ill
the sick the depressed
a complete cure all
on recall ...perched
in the mountains
haji malang essence
of humility standing tall
Most of the Bawas I meet at one Urus or the other , but Zanjirwale Bawa I have not met for about 2 or 3 years ..
And they just disappear , their Murids give them Mobile phones ,I believe he was given a wheel chair to make his travel easy .. but I have lost touch with him completely..
I am perhaps the only Muslim shooting Lalbaugh Chya Raja for over 20 years or more ,,thanks to Mr Sudhir Salvi head honcho of the Mandal.....
