JAMIA HAIDRIA FAZL-UL-ULOOM JALALPUR SHARIF
Allah-ho-Akbar ... Subhan Allah ... Al-hamdulillah ... Ya Rasool-al-Allah
Allah Almighty loved mankind – His divine concern for His creatures prompted Him to send ambassadors of love bearing the message – His Prophets. From Adam to Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H), the last in line, the message centered on the Oneness of Allah and the true path of righteous deeds. This was to be the nucleus of success both herein and hereafter. The light of peace and harmony as the word Islam stands for, emanating from Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H) the last torchbearer, reached and enlightened the darkest corners of the world – in geographic terms as well as the spiritual sense. After him, his Holy companions and later, Awlia-e-Allah, the loving friends of Allah, kept the torch burning.
Love, compassion and understanding for all shaped and practiced out of sincere and selfless devotion marked their preaching of the divine message. Irrespective of caste, color or creed, regardless of rigid socio-economic disparities or similar myopic barriers, these friends of Allah, the Holy Saints, reached out to mankind in general, from Central Asia to the far flung areas of the globe.
They spread Islam through compassion not by force or sword. They conquered the human heart and purged it of varying fake ideologies. One such highly eminent of the Awlia-e-Allah of his time was Pir Syed Ghulam Haider Shah BaadShah. He was originally form Jalalpur Sharif, which is located about 150 kilometers east of Rawalpindi and 50 kilometers south-west of Jehlum.
