Spiritualism is the amorous union of Allah’s sayings and the life of Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH). This ardent love (Ishq) is the extreme pinnacle and also the base of Sufism. The precept and practice of a Sufi always wanders in the horizons of his spiritual Master’s (Sheikh) consent, Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad’s (PBUH) love and Allah’s pleasure. The history of Sufism eulogizes all those great personalities who devoted their lives for the eminence of Islam – the religion of nature and leading the humanity by establishing different chains of Sufism (spiritualism/tasawwuf). The magnificence, elevation and glory of each chain is different. The exalted “Owaisia Chain” is one of them.
The approach of Owaisia chain is attributed to the way Hazrat Owais Qarni (R.A) benefitted from the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muahammad’s (PBUH) honored soul in spite of being deprived of apparent meeting. In the same manner, whenever blessings are attained directly through Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) or one/more saints of Barzakh (interval between death and resurrection), it is recognized as Owaisia methodology. Hazrat Shah Wali Allah (R.A) narrated in “Hama’at”: “Thus concluded that the Owaisia Chain is also one of the leading chains for many saints are related to this Chain and the head of this Chain is Hazrat Owais Qarni (R.A) who was trained by Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) through implicit affection. The followers of this methodic chain embody enormous greatness and sternness among spiritual beings.” The Owaisia chain is the bearer of unlimited vigor. The traveler of this Chain can be understood fortunate enough to be traveling in an aero plane in comparison to walking and at higher rankings covering distance through rockets instead of aero planes. The history of Owaisia Chain started from the blessed era of Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH).
