The connection between the Awliya Allah in the grave and the living leader of the Dergah (Gaddi Nasheen)
Sayyidi Sultan Ul Awliya Shaykh Muhammad Mohsin Munawar Yousafi has written in a biography book (Seerat e Nagina Rasool) about Grand Shaykh Muhammad Yousuf Ali Nagina (May Allah Please with Him).
Sayyidi Shaykh quotes Grand Shaykh (Muhammad Yousuf Ali Nagina [May Allah please with Him]) of Naqshbandi Mohsini Sufi Order that as the living Awliya Allah (Friend of Allah) provide guidance to the people, in the same way, those who have departed from this world provide guidance to the people too. He further relates to His own experience that Himself met many times after their departed from this world, also gained spiritual blessings from especially two great personalities: Shaykh Shere Rabbani Mian Shere Mohammed Sharaqpuri and Shaykh Syed Jamaat Ali Shah Lathani Alipuri (May Allah Please with them).
Grand Shaykh Muhmmad Yousuf Ali Nagina (May Allah Please with Him) dedicated poetry form them as:
I give away my self to the lion of Muhammad, who have enlightened Sharaqpur,
I give away my self to Him who have made Awliyaa,Gouss and Qutb,
Heart of Ali and the Grandson of Muhammad,Alipuri Lathani is my Shaykh
Whenever I called Him in need,He is my Owner and He is the Saviour
It was the practice of Grand Shaykh Muhammad Yousuf Ali Nagina (May Allah Please with Him) that H e paid homage at the shrine of Hazrat Shere Rabbani (May Allah Please with Him) before going to pay respect to Hazrat Mian Ghulam Ullah (May Allah Please with Him).
