Sultan Bahu: People of Taqlid are Mushrik and in Pursuit of Dunya

The Sufi/Hanafi “saint” respected by both Barelwis and Deobandis, Sultan Bahu (1630-1691) condemned the practice of “Taqlid” (blind-emulation) in severe terms, saying:

اور بسبب تقلید طالب دنیا ہیں۔

Translation: “Taqlid is the result of worldliness.”

He further stated:

اہل توحید صاحب ہدایت غنایت اور تحقیق ہوتے ہیں۔ اور اہل تقلید صاحب دنیا اہل شکایت اور مشرک ہوتے ہیں۔

Translation: “The people of Tawhid (Monotheism) are people of guidance, sufficiency, and truth, whereas the people of Taqlid (blind-following) are people of worldliness, complaint, and are Mushrik (polytheistic).”

Reference: Tawfeeq-ul-Hidayah; p.149
