Sufi Allayar and Mashrab were great disseminators of the ideas and theories of the Naqshbandiya order. Sufi Allayar was greatly devoted to Allah and believed Allah’s hell and paradise. He was sure that the people with great faults and sins would be burnt in the hell without fail and would not have the mercy of Allah. Therefore, with the purpose of enlightening people with the teachings of Islam, he tried to disse minate the rules and laws of Shariah among the believers.
As to Mashrab he, having absorbed the rules of Shariah, went further and with his poems glorified the ideas of the religious order. He promoted the positive ideas of humanity, exalted the man and called him to be pure in his soul striving to religious order. Sufi Allayar was greatly devoted to the motto “Your hands should be busy with work and your soul with the name of Allah” promoted by Bahauddin Naqshbandi.
If a man has love in his heart, he may be able to recognize Allah. Allayar expresses the meaning of this idea in the following lines:
As the poet stresses, the key to all souls is love. As man has great love to Allah, he can find way to all hearts. If a man has love to the Creator, he has faith in God.
Really, this wish, this suffer which can be dreamed of is a symbol of purity of soul. Sufism is a teaching that teaches both the purity of souls and spirits. So, Mashrab and Sufi Allayar’s rich philosophical and moral heritage and their outlook expressed in the form of advice did not lose its importance as a necessary component of educational material.
