Barelwi Kalimah: "La Elaha Illa Allah Shibli Rasoulullah"

Barelwi and Sufi leader Ghaus Ali Shah Qalandar Paanipati wrote "one day two people came to take an oath of allegiance to Shaykh Abu Bakr Shibli, who told one of them to declare,

لاَ الَـهَ اِلَّا اللهُ  شِبْلِى رَسُوْلُ اللهِ

(There is none worthy of worship except Allah. Shibli is the Messenger of Allah)".

In explaining such a shocking statement of infidelity, Ghaus Ali Shah writes, "Baat yeh thi keh jo shakhs ta'leem-o-talqeen aur hidayat-o-irshad karta hey taleb key leye wohi Rasoul aur Risalat Elahi ka kaam anjam deta hey" (The person who provides spiritual knowledge and guidance is a Messenger (Rasoul) for his student)
