Today, Shaykh ul Aalam Khwaja Mohammad Alauddin Siddiqui – may Allah’s Mercy be upon him! – is remembered for his tireless devotion in delivering spiritual counsel to the masses, aiding individuals daily with sincere advice and support, and being a true exemplar of the Prophetic Way of khidmat al khalq (serving the creation). Indeed, the Shaykh’s character was a true embodiment of the Sunnah of the Beloved Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, who dedicated much of his life to gently guiding hearts to Allah. Whether the Shaykh was in the UK or abroad, his door was always open to all for the Sake of Allah.
For his teachings and counsel, the Shaykh has been affectionately known worldwide as Shaykh ul Aalam (literally meaning; Shaykh of the World). His visits to many parts of the globe, as well as his powerfully enlightening talks broadcasted via Noor TV and online, have touched thousands upon thousands of hearts and inclined them to turn back to the Path of Islam. Shaykh ul Aalam’s practical example is itself a proof of the true Way of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaat and Tasawwuf, and brings to mind the incredible personalities, great scholars and noble Sufis, who have enriched our Islamic history.
We pray to Allah, Who is One and there is none like He, Who is Absolute and Most High — o our Lord, bless the noble Soul of our beloved Shaykh with Your infinite Mercy, Your Proximity and a high Station in both worlds. Ameen, by the intermediary of Your Beloved, Sayyidina Muhammad — may Allah’s peace and blessings forever be upon him, his Family & Companions.
