Hazrat Nisar Ahmed Nisar رحمتاالله علیه
May Allah Raise their Status and Sanctify their Soul

"My eyes fall shy when I look at you,
Your sight; your beauty are zenith of truth,
Forever I shall gaze into the abyss in prayer,
Forever I will search for another glypmse of you"

Anwar-un-Nabi ibn Nisar

Born in Agra, India just before the end of the Second World War, they were one of the most beloved salik / pupils of Hazrat Syed Mahmood Hassan Rizvi رحمتاالله علیه who then later attained the sacred permissions / ijaza of tareeqat from them.

They also gained Sohba', Guidance and love from Hazrat Zaid Abul Hassan Faruqi رحمتاالله علیه and Hazrat Salim al-Faruqi رحمتاالله علیه

They lived in Agra during their childhood, emigrated to Pakistan on formation and lived in Karachi where they first met their shiekh.  There they remained under their guidance - forever embracing their loyalty - for the sake of Allah. They also for a short while lived in Saudi Arabia. Then under the instruction of their Mushaikh moved to England, United Kingdom where  they spent the remainder of their life.

Amongst a great many other qualities they read and wrote Nasheed in Arabic, Farsi and Urdu.  Their command over language and was astonishing.  However due to great respect and humility they preferred mostly to read the Naat of their Mushaikh over their own.

This was also the case when it came to initiating new people to the tareeqat. Despite the fact that they held ijaza and were encouraged to initiate people themselves, they thought it disrespectful to initiate someone whilst their Shiekh was still alive - and thus - channeled everyone they nurtured with great love and care to their own sheikh. Such was their humility such was their selflessness, I have yet to come across someone like them.

In addition to their Spiritual Teachings - the Naats they read poured the love of our Rasuul صلي الله عليه و سلم into the hearts of a great many people aswell as our own since childhood.Till this day, I have yet to meet a scholar like them.  They were not only my father, they were my everything.

They passed away in January 1992.  May Allah Subhaana'wa'ta'aala Raise their status and sanctify their soul. Ameen.

Near their later years many people attested that their face miraculously resembled the face of their sheikh.  This was confirmed by their sheikh and many others at the time of their burial.

As titled, this Biography is a mini version and by no intent do any justice in describing the life of Hazrat Nisar Ahmed RA.  My intent is a mere introduction of their life while work continues on collating other media such as their Naatay and other works. 

However, I still feel that even if I sat here for months on end, I would still not be able to even begin to describe the great accomplishments they attained or comprehend the magnitude of the spiritual heights they reached.  Hopefully, work on a more complete biography will be revisited as a continual work that shall eventually reach maturity, insha'Allah Wa'ta'aala, with efforts of all involved.  The same goes for all the other biographies of the Hazraat that still remain to be completed.

- Anwar-un-Nabi ibn Nisar Ahmed

It is narrated by ‘Umar bin al-Khattāb that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said:

"Among Allāh’s servants there are some who are neither prophets nor martyrs but on the Day of Judgement the prophets and the martyrs will envy their grades. The Companions asked: ‘O Messenger of Allāh, tell us, who are those people?’ He replied: ‘those are the people who love one another on Allāh’s count. They are neither related to one another nor do they have any property to exchange. I swear on Allāh that they will have faces of light,they will be on pulpits of light. They will not have any fear when others will be afraid, they will not have any grief when others will be aggrieved.’ Then he recited the verse: Beware! No doubt, there is no fear for the friends of Allāh nor shall they be sad and sorrowful. "
