"Must Alast" - A Silly Chanting

In Response To: "Muast Alast" (Noora Jamal, Istanbul)

Dear Sister Noora,

First of all, I am not a fan of Rumi at all. His poetry is loaded with SHIRK, psychological complexes against the exalted Prophet and hatred of his noble companions.

[Since the companions were drenched in the love of this world, they left alone the body of the Prophet (S) even without a coffin of cloth]

In my view, Rumi was a Criminal of Islam. Allama Iqbal only speed-read some parts of Rumi and failed to notice what his PIR (guide) had said.

"MUST ALAST" (duped in ALASTU) is a form of meaningless Sufi chanting. They vicariously connect it to the Qur'an.

ALASTU = Am I not?

ALASTU BIRABBIKUM? = Am I not your Sustainer?

7:172 When your Lord brought forth generations in succession from the Children of Adam, and made them bear witness, “Am I not your Sustainer?” They said, “Yes, we bear witness.” Thus you cannot say on the Resurrection Day, “We were not aware of this.”

[Min Zuhoorihim = From their posterity = In succession = Their seed = One generation following another. The Q & A here is an allegory. The uninterrupted survival of mankind is a telling witness that there is an Almighty Sustainer of them all]

I hope you get your answers from a lifelong student.
