In short, this was the state of the affairs of those kings, who were the Shadows of God in real terms and on whose heads were the the real heirs of earth the Oulul-Amar Aulia casting their shadow and they accompanied them and backed them in their every Outward and Inward condition! Alas! The foreigner Historians, in our books of History syllabus, have depicted our just, judicious, religious and firm on Faith kings in very wrong shade and they have proven them to be greedy, discriminative, cruel and merry makers of unlimited degree whereas they have beaten the drum of that undue and wrong propaganda for the appreciation and extol of their half-savage, ignorant, brutal and atrocious sovereigns of their countries in a way that they have exalted them up higher to our Messengers even! Hence, in those days when this Faqeer was reading in (the Islamia) College (Lahore), a book titled 'Alfred the Great' was included in our English Syllabus. The writer of this book, at many places, had compared and contrasted the conduct (and ethics), habits and dealing of the Alfred the Great with our laudable overlord the Ahmed e Mukhtaar Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam and had proven him better and superior (May Allah forbid) over our Noble Prophet Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam , who's blessed essence is, no doubt, the summation of the entire tremendous nature and he, undoubtedly, is the prototype resource of the sublime traits and he is him, who is the best of all the Messengers (of Allah) and is the Beloved of the Sustainer of the Worlds and in who's praise and veneration the earth and heavens are in echo (since ever and forever and he is matchless and the best creation of God). Hence, what other motive can be behind this gesture of prescribing this (absurd) book in our academic syllabus but to depict our Prophet , who is the Truthful and Valid and the Beloved of the Creator and the Creatures, as a common type of a cruel ruler (We seek Allah's refuge against this). Moreover, the Muslim Professors of our Islamia College (Lahore) were compelled to teach this book and we were forced to read and memorize this book. At such occasions, we can just say this:
There is huge dissimilarity between a dead lamp and the sun,
It will be grave blunder if you consider both same besides the huge difference of action they have.
If we examine the conditions of the lives of the European Sovereigns and monarchs of earlier Sixteenth and Seventieth Century and their religious guides and the spiritual leaders even their Popes, we see those terrific episodes and terrible examples of barbarianism and sanguinary which surpass in degree over the blood shedding done by (Mongol) Genghis Khan and Hulagu Khan. Among the Muslim kings, Mahmood Ghazanvi and Alamgir Aurangzeb had been very just, righteous and religious. Hence, even today the signs and Anwaar of the Spiritual Life are noticed on their graves and the respect and esteem of their tombs is still observed and established. However, Alas! These two have been portrayed in very wrong impression in the books of History. In short, always the Spiritual Power and the Inwardly Force in Islam have done the amazing 'world conquering' actions in form of the Hand of Allah and the Hand of Ability against the forces of Material Powers and the Outwardly Kingdoms. Behind all the attacks done by Sultan Mahmood Ghazanvi and in his achievements and the remarkable conquests were just dependent upon the Spiritual Power and the Inwardly Tawajuh of the virtuous Dervishes and the Kaamil Faqeers of his time, who, like moveable iron castles, provided the Inwardly and Spiritual support to the Sultan and extended him the backing of every kind.
The story of granting his cloak, as auspicious gift, by Hazrat Abul Hasan Kharqani Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe to Sultan Mahmood for his arduous ventures sending him on mission of the territorial conquests and the travelling of the Sultan along with his ordinarily equipped army across the so much intolerable mountains and the barren deserts and their reaching the fertile, wealthy, well populated, skillful and civilized land of Hindustan after covering so much long distance on foot and their attacking over all central and the main holy waters and the famous idol temples and their fighting with the thousands of Rajas and Maharajas and their beating them in sword skill of Gatka (the skill which is used to kill the opponents as soon as possible) and their openly trouncing the Khashtari warriors and the gallantry of the Rajput Sikhs and facing their skillful combatants riding on swift horses, mighty bulls and powerful elephants and then staying all victorious and hurling two hundred Hindus by each Muslim soldier and driving them to Ghazni like sheep and goats; is it not a marvel of Spiritual Power?
