Shazzan Lee Named by Allah

Once Hazrath Imam Shazuli (Razi…) was giving lecture to his followers and people at Shazila. A lot of muridheens were gathered around him awaiting for the words which would come out from Imam. Imam’s speech was like the water coming out of a opened sluice. Imam Shazuli (Razi…) was telling about Allah (Jal…)’s favour towards us, our duty towards Allah (Jal…), our gratitude to be shown towards him and the relation ship between the universal creator Allah (Jal…) and his human creations. Listening all this from the Imam the people felt as if they were standing before Allah (Jal…). Hazrath Imam Shazuli (Razi…) who gave speech with qualm ness heard a voice “Antha Shazzan – Lee”. Feeling that this voice is from Allah’s side, Shazuli Imam (Razi…) asked “Ya Allah! I am not from Shazila and then why I am called Shazuli”? “You are my most lovable”. You are with individuality and you are superior among my affectionates and hence the name (Shazzan Lee) replied Allah (Jal…).

The number of muslims following Hazrath Imam Shazuli (Razi…) increased day by day. There were 1 lakh and 25 thousand followers of Imam when he entered the Cairo city. From this we can know the integrity of Hazrath Sheikh Shazuli (Razi…). Hazrath Imam Shazuli (Razi…) built a madarasa byname “AL MADRASATUL KAMILIYYA” at Cairo city where AL – AZHAR UNIVERSTY is situated today.

The knowledge of Imam Shazuli (Razi…) was explainable to the Malayikaths. Once, Imam Shazuli (Razi…) was traveling with Hazrath Abu Muhammadh Abdhullah Al Hasani (Razi…) towards a city Shazila. On the way Imam said “Oh Abu Muhammadh! If you are deviated from my way you be standing there at that point you need not come in search of me”. Few minutes later Imam Shazuli (Razi…) felt uneasy, and he left his friend Hazrath Abdhullah and came very long distance. Suddenly some four large birds came down. That formed a queue and talked something with Imam one by one with reverence. Then a plethora of tiny birds came down and surrounded Imam. Later they all flied off.

Only then Imam near me and asked “Oh! Abdhullah! Did you see any wonder?” Yes my Sheikh! I replied and briefed to Sheikh what I saw, and asked for its meaning.

Imam replied “The four large birds were the Celestial beings (Malaks). They had a doubt and came to me for explanation and they returned with satisfaction”.
The numbers of tiny birds were the soul of Waliyullahs who want to get prosperity by visiting me.
