Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin contributes to society in the capacity of being a loving father, and by vocation as an Editor In Chief and Publisher of an online daily English edition of India’s third oldest daily print newspaper. He is also a director on the executive committee of one of India’s most prestigious NGO’s which advocates for better relations between India and the Arab world and an end to the Arab-Israeli conflict with a peaceful two-state solution.
By passion, Sayyid is a researcher of political science and classical Islam, initiated by the Khwajagan i-Naqshband, known as the Masters of Wisdom, or Khwajagan. His research of twelve years under the tutelage of one of the world’s leading authorities on classical Islam of the 20th century – Mawlana GrandShaykh Nazim Adil al-Qubrusi (1921-2014) who initiated him in 2002, led him to the discovery of a great treasure – the forgotten central tenant in Islam of covenant theology.
Covenant theology, for Muslims, is accepting as Allah’s Chosen People (3:33 “Lo! Allah chose Adam and Noah, the Family of Abraham, and the Family of ‘Imran over all other beings, They were descendants one of another. Allah is Hearer, Knower”), with fealty as doctrine, the continued line of descent of the eldest sons of the Children of Adam and Eve from whom the Prophet Muhammad directly descends – known over the generations as the Sethites, the Semites, the Ishmaelites, the Arabs, the Adnanites, the Kana’anites, the Qurayshites, the Hashemites, the Muttalibites, culminated in the appearance of the Prophet Muhammad b. ‘Abd Allah, and from him, the Heiress of the Seal of Prophets Fatima al-Zahra, and the Prophet’s Ahl al-Bayt (House of Fatima al-Zahra b. Sayyidina Muhammad b. ‘Abd Allah and caliph Imam ‘Ali b. Abi Talib) – also known as the Banu Fatima (Children of Fatima).
This blog contains the treasure trove of the details of Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin’s findings under Mawlana GrandShaykh Nazim’s direction, as they evolved, in service of the Ummah and humanity.
Eleventh Dynasty: The House of Imam Hasan Al-AskariThe Prophet ﷺ is reported to have said in an authentic tradition: “Behold! My House (Ahl al-Bayt) is like the Ark of Noah. Whoever embarked on it was saved, and whoever turned away from it perished.”
The greatest treasure unearthed by Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin is his discovery of the (much concealed) widely accepted Sunni belief in Twelve Imams of Ahl al-Bayt during the classical Islamic period and mainstream of recognition of the existence of a biological line of descent from the eleventh dynasty of Ahl al-Bayt – the House of al-Imam Hasan al-Askari. This discovery helped Sayyid uncover the existence of a continuously present elite body of Sunni Muslims throughout history who believed the Twelfth Imam Sahib uz-Zaman Imam Muhammad al-Mahdi b. Hasan al-Askari is the Awaited Mahdi.
This elite body of Sunni Muslims throughout history who believed the Twelfth Imam Sahib uz–Zaman Imam Muhammad al-Mahdi b. Hasan al-Askari is the Awaited Mahdi included some of the wealthiest and most powerful Muslims throughout history, like the great Ottoman Caliphs, the Mughal Emperors of Hindustan, the Qutb Shahi dynasty (Golkonda kingdom) founders of Hyderabad, Deccan, and their successors, the Asaf Jahi dynasty of Hyderabad. It is worth noting H.E.H. Nizam of Hyderabad Mir Osman Ali Khan Siddiqi, Asaf Jah VII was portrayed on the cover of TIME magazine in 1937 as the richest man in the world and named by Forbes as the wealthiest South Asian in history, and ranked fifth on the Forbes ‘All Time Wealthiest’. His Imperial Majesty Caliph Abdülmecid II, styled Commander of the Faithful and Shadow of God on Earth, the last Caliph of the Imperial House of Osman (Ottoman Empire) performed the wedding of his daughter Princess Durri Chehvar to the eldest son of the Nizam of Hyderabad Sahib Zada Nawab Azam Jah in 1931. On 23 August 1944, Abdulmejid II passed while in exile at his house in the Boulevard Suchet, Paris. His passing coincided with the Liberation of Paris from Nazi occupation. He was buried in the Jannat al-Baqi cemetery adjacent to the Holy Prophet’s Mosque in Medina, Saudi Arabia by the order of His Majesty King Saud bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.
Islam’s Covenant Theology
From his extensive research of twelve years under GrandShaykh Nazim’s tutelage Sayyid concluded:
i.) For Arabs and Muslims, there is a direct link and correlation between faith, covenant theology, and spiritual, scientific, technological, intellectual, military and material prosperity. Whoever surrendered himself in Islam (with humble submission and belief) to this covenant throughout Islam’s history prospered with great opulence and whoever did not, didn’t.
ii.) All confusion, trauma, pillaging and major bloodshed in Islam’s history were and are simply a consequence of neglecting the covenant, creating a mental and spiritual imbalance where the lower self (nafs ammara) and low thought become dominant attracting thereby the subsequent cyclical emergence and dominance of Gog and Magog at major points in Islam’s history commencing with the sacking of Baghdad in 1258, to the savage Crusades, barbaric Colonialism, to the Balfour Declaration and Sykes-Picot to present.
iii.) This cycle of brutality at the hands of these merciless savage forces of Gog and Magog always naturally ends as the Ummah restores itself on its own to acceptance of Islam’s covenant theology and thereby becomes liberated from low thought and the lower self (nafs ammara). Acceptance of covenant theology always therefore results in a major restoration of Arabic and Muslim hegemony, even if at the hands of non-Arabs. This restoration happens and will continue to happen repeatedly in the form of renovation at the hand of the Rennovator of the era (Mujadid) because of the continued presence of the descendants and relatives of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) throughout the various generations, particularly the eleventh dynasty of Ahl al-Bayt, and is organically completed with the emergence of the Awaited Mahdi of the eleventh dynasty.
This theory can be tested, and is accurate and applicable now as it was throughout Islam’s history and constitutes Sayyid’s greatest and most profound contribution to the Arab and Islamic world under the tutelage of Mawlana GrandShaykh Nazim Adil al-Qubrusi.
Furthermore, Sayyid’s research led him to discover the identity of the founder of Tariqah Sufism – the venerable Shaykh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (1078-1166). Al-Jilani’s intellectual contribution of Tariqah Sufism preserved the very legacy of classical Islam itself and supported it’s spreading after the savage Crusades to this very day.
The view of al-Jilani being the founder of Tariqah Sufism was also discussed by one of the world’s foremost academic authorities on classical Islam – Dr. Seyyed Hossein Nasr – who credited ‘Sufism as we know it for the past eight centuries‘ to al-Jilani. (MuslimHeritage)
Sayyid concluded al-Jilani’s contribution is akin to the contributions of al-Bukhari and al-Kulayni, and hence must be recognized. Furthermore, the tremendous cultural and philosophical contributions of the Sufi greats who came after him over the past eight centuries like Ibn Arabi, Rumi, Baha al-Din Naqshband, and Moinuddin Chishti should also be credited to him (al-Jilani), since they represent the legacy of al-Jilani’s contribution.
Sayyid’s findings constitute a major intellectual contribution in a decentralized post Ottoman, Arab and Muslim world.
In recognition of his contribution, Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin was declared on record by the venerable Qutb al-Ghawth al-Sayyid al-Sharif Mawlana GrandShaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani qadasAllahu sirrahul ‘Aziz to be “one of closer ones to Mahdi ‘alaihi salam” and hence a reliable source for information and ideas.
The venerable Qutb ul-Ghawth al-Sayyid al-Sharif Mawlana GrandShaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani recognized Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin with over twenty-three degrees traditionally called Ijazahs for his research, and Sayyid served as a Deputy of the late Naqshbandi GrandShaykh Mawlana Shaykh Nazim since 2002.
As a result of his research for a period spanning over twelve years, Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin advocates Arabism for the Middle East, endorses the theory of Arab monarchism, is a monarchist himself, and a Husaynid Askarid royalist. During the present period of the Occultation of the Twelfth Imam, Sayyid endorses in concept His Majesty King Hussein bin Talal’s modern interpertation of Malik al-Bilad al-‘Arabiyya Amir al-Mumenin Al Munquiz Al A’zam His Majesty Hussein ibn ‘Ali, Caliph al-Islam, (former) King of the Hijaz, Commander of the Faithful, Grand Sharif and Amir of Mecca’s vision of Arabism and traditional style of government, and also calls for Arab and Islamic unity with a unity of sovereign equals.
This opinion of unity of sovereign equals has also gained popularity in the Arab and Muslim world, and resulted in the formation of Al-Tahaluf Al-Islami Al-Askari in 2015 – the largest Islamic military alliance in history.
“…The United States appreciates the voices of concerned citizens and leaders in Canada and around the world who denounce terrorism and extremism and we hope your organization will continue to speak up in defense of liberty and moderation. By uniting as free peoples we believe we can build a more peaceful world…” – Ambassador of the United States of America to Canada, Hon. David Wilkins’ letter addressing Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin
“…It will be in this order…a Muslim army will come, and America will support them, American forces will join them, they will also support them. This is explained in Muhiuddin Ibn Arabi’s book in detail.” – Mawlana GrandShaykh Nazim al-Qubrusi, April 10th, 2011, SaltanatTV
Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin follows the Arab and Muslim world in recognizing His Majesty King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Mamlikat al-Arabia al-Saudia as the Custodian of the Grand Mosques of Mecca and Medinah (Khadim ul-Haramayn Sharifayn), His Majesty King Abdullah II Ibn Hussein of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan as the Custodian of Jerusalem and its holy sites of Haram al-Sharif Masjid Al-Aqsa and As-Sakhra (Dome of the Rock), and His Majesty Amir al-Mu’minin King Mohammed VI of Morocco as Chairman of Al Quds Committee, an offshoot of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). On 31 March 2013, His Majesty King Abdullah II and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas signed a historical agreement in Amman reaffirming the King’s Custodianship over Holy Sites in Jerusalem, and stating that His Majesty has the right to exert all legal efforts to safeguard them, especially Al Aqsa Mosque, which is defined as “The Entirety of Al Haram Al Sharif.” Sayyid lends his mental support to these three Arab Muslim kings, the OIC, and the leaders of the Arab and Muslim world who reject terrorism and tyranny and prays for their unity and the welfare of their individual nations daily.
Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin is recognized globally for his research and initiative to prevent jihadist radicalization through his innovative approach of employing psychosocial interventions. He rejects extremist ideology, terrorism, jihadism, suicide attacks, martyrdom operations, new and old forms of Western Imperialism and believes in peaceful coexistence and prosperity.
According to Laurier University’s ‘Laurier M.A. Journal on Religion and Culture’ (2010), Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin is credited as being the inspiration behind Canadian Pakistani scholar Dr. Tahir ul-Qadri’s historic six-hundred page fatwa against terrorism – published and recognized by the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation), an organization representing 56 Muslim states, and the collective voice of the Muslim world, with permanent delegations to the United Nations and the European Union.
Wilfred Laurier University’s “The Laurier M.A. Journal of Religion and Culture” writes on pg. 31,
“…the establishment of Amiruddin’s Al Sunnah Foundation and the twelve-step program…can be seen as inspiring and reinforcing the flurry of activism that has continued to emerge from within the community since mid-2009…This growing anti-jihadist activism includes Canadian-based sheikh Tahir ul-Qadri independently issuing a 600-page document in London in March 2010, thoroughly refuting any potential theological justifications for Islamic extremism and going so far as to state that terrorists and suicide bombers are destined for damnation”.
Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin supports the Arab Peace Initiative also known as the Saudi Initiative, for an end to the Arab–Israeli conflict that was unanimously endorsed by the Arab League. This initiative calls for a two-state solution with an accessible East Jerusalem remaining as it has – for over one thousand years – the capital of Arab Palestine.
Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin has helped Canadian officials on policy related matters since 2005 pertaining to assisting Canada’s Muslim community. He was personally called upon by the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, has addressed conferences along side US Vice President Al Gore, Justin Trudeau, and some of Canada’s leading intellectuals, and was called to testify before the Senate of Canada.
Sayyid supports the government of Canada’s signing in 2014 of ‘the longest weapons contract in Canadian history’ with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for $15-billion while Stephen Harper was Prime Minister. Furthermore, Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin supports the government of Canada’s agreement during Prime Minister Harper’s era to secure a direct investment of $36 billion USD to develop shale gas assets in Canada and build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal for export to Asia by the Malaysian state-owned enterprise Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas). This accounts for the largest ever direct foreign investment in energy in Canada’s history.
Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin’s blog has been read hundreds of thousands of times in over 173 different countries and his outreach in Canada literally introduced over 1.6 million Canadian viewers to the existence of a classical interpretation of Islam.
Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin is mentioned favourably by name in the WikiLeaks cables, and is cited as an inspirational leader in the “Laurier M.A. Journal on Religion and Culture”.
In 2013, H.E. al-Sayyid al-Sharif Mawlana Shaykh Adnan Kabbani predicted Sayyid would be “one of the main inheritors of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim and the Naqshbandi Sufi Way“, while his brother, H.E. al-Sayyid al-Sharif Dr. Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani declared in writing after the passing of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani in 2014, Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin is “one of the forty deputies of Mahdi ‘alaihi salam“.
This blog exists as the principle expression of Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin’s deep gratitude to his Creator for all. It is maintained on behalf of Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin. It contains his writings, declarations and research as it evolved over a period of nearly fourteen years under the Rabitah; mental, physical, spiritual and telepathic association of the venerable Qutb ul-Ghawth Mawlana al-Sayyid al-Sharif GrandShaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil al-Haqqani (d.2014) of the Most Distinguished Naqshbandi Haqqani Sufi Order, Khwajagan i-Naqshband. These writings are presented in service of guests to this blog to take readers along Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin’s inner journey of intellectual, doctrinal, jurisprudential (fiqhi), political and spiritual thought evolution beginning with his earliest writings on the covenant of Abraham, his compilation of multiple learning outlines, sharing of eBooks, hundreds of articles, his counter-radicalization program to his closing inspiration; which culminates all these ideas into what he referred to as the ‘kingdom of heaven & the dynastic school‘.
Readers are encouraged to engage the contents of this blog with an open mind, and it is hoped the last lesson readers take from this journey is the absolute rejection of religious intolerance.
