QARI MUSHTAQ AHMAD IS A QURAN SINGER AND TEACHER OF ARABIC
I AM YOUR HOST SHEIKH FIRDOUSI WYRICK
The story of the WAZIFA SCHOOL starts as an encounter on FaceBook just a few months ago... Two devoted mystics who never met before somehow formed a deep friendship of the heart from their mutual love of God, the Creator and the Loving Master of the Universe. And so they came to a sincere desire to understand and know about each others lives. Mushtaq Ahmad and Firdousi Wyrick began to talk by text and video with each other nearly every day and related their many mutual interests in Sufism, Islam, Quran singing and of course the 99 names of Allah. These names are known in the Muslim world asʾasmāʾu llāhi l-ḥusnā. In the Arabic: أسماء الله الحسنى, or the Beautiful Names of Allah. They are know as Wazifa or the mantras of the Muslims and Sufis. While Mushtaq was from a Qadri Sufi lineage Firdousi was from a Western branch of Sufism called the Sufi Ruhaniat International (S.R.I.) which was founded by Sufi Ahmad Murad Chisti (Murshid Samuel Louis) back in the 60s. Samuel Lewis came from the lineage of Hazrat Inayat Khan who was the great Chisti saint who brought Sufism to the West back in 1910. He adopted many Sufi teachings to be comprehensible to Westerners opening so many hearts to the Prophet Muhammad عليه الصلاة والسلام and the deep understandings of Sufism and Islam and the East. Mushtaq had studied many years with a Qadri Pir named Allama Mohammed Maqsood Ahmad Qadri Chishti and had become an Imam and a Hafiz (the title of one who has memorized the entire Quran). In the course of his studies with many different teachers he eventually became a skilled Qari which is one who sings the Quran with special pronunciation methods that awaken the mysticism of sound to the reciter and the listener. He has served as an Imam at the Masjid he built in 1997 and has been tirelessly working there for no money while being the Mu'azan, the Imam Khateeb and teaching children the Quran while also taking care of the Masjid grounds and building all by himself. Qari Mustaq's command of English allowed long conversations on so many subjects. Soon Firdousi asked Mushtaq to help correct Firdousi's pronunciation of the 99 names and other Suras and Arabic sayings. So Mushtaq started to give lessons and some historical context and short teachings thrown in. Mustaq shared and offered to train Firdousi how to sing a few Suras and Duas as well as to study the Arabic language (especially the 99 names of Allah.) Because Mushtaq lives just outside of Lahore, Pakistan and Firdousi lives in Paris, France in the past this kind of relationship would never have been possible. Because of the extraordinary technology of this time, Mushtaq began giving Firdousi lessons nearly every day. Then at some point, (in these times of Covid-19), Mushtaq was unable to work as a shoemaker anymore as everything became closed down in Pakistan. Indeed the whole world changed quickly for nearly all of humanity. Mushtaq began to fear that he could not feed and care for his wife and children. Firdousi suggested that Mushtaq try teaching some of his Western Sufi students a little Arabic and some of the 99 names in proper Arabic pronunciation as well as to sing some of the short Sura's of the Quran. Mushtaq liked this idea since it is closer to his purpose then shoe making. Firdousi has worked online for years and offered to put up and site and construct an online course so Mushtaq could work online. This way Mushtaq could teach in an ongoing way those who might be interested in going deep into Saying, Reciting, Understanding, Writing and Singing the Beautiful 99 Names and other offerings that would help Western Sufis uncover and themselves awaken the beauty and power of these sacred names. Since a small amount of Western money goes a long way in Pakistan interested students could decide a donation amount for each month and learn the very special knowledge of Qari Mushtaq very inexpensively and in their own time. This would help him so much to feed his family and maybe even to acquire a better home for him and his family. It is from this mutual love of Allah and deep respect for each others knowledge and heart-love that the desire to help spread his knowledge and to help support Mushtaq and his family that this web site has been launched to form the WAZIFA SCHOOL whose mission is to spread great, blessing, healing love and the potency of these most sacred and beautiful names. So, Inshallah, if learning this knowledge is of interest to you and giving support to a wonderful person who is seeking to fulfill his Divine Purpose and feed his family please consider joining this gathering of devotees on our path to Love and Wonder. Please enroll in our Wazifa School.
HERE IS A SAMPLE OF QARI MUSHTAQ'S WONDERFUL SKILL. FIRST HE SINGS THE FATIHA AND SECOND HE SINGS THE CALL TO PRAYER
So below is a Hadith or a Saying of the the Prophet Mohammad which talks of the importance of these names and repeating them. الْجَنَّةَ . قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى: وَلَيْسَ فِي هَذَا الْحَدِيثِ ذِكْرُ الْأَسْمَاءِ، قَالَ: وَهَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌعَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، قَالَ: إِنَّ لِلَّهِ تِسْعَةً وَتِسْعِينَ اسْمًا مَنْ أَحْصَاهَا دَخَلَحَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ أَبِي صَحِيحٌ، رَوَاهُ أَبُو الْيَمَانِ، عَنْ شُعَيْبِ بْنِ أَبِي حَمْزَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي الزِّنَادِ، وَلَمْ يَذْكُرْ فِيهِ الْأَسْمَاءَعُمَرَ، حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ بْنُ عُيَيْنَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي الزِّنَادِ، عَنِ الْأَعْرَجِ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ
And here is the translation. Abu Hurairah narrated that the Prophet said: “Indeed, Allah has ninety-nine Names, whoever counts them shall enter Paradise.”. This was reported by l;' Jam e Tirmazi#3508 Status: صحیح
