Introduction to Qadri Shattari Silsila
|Mausoleum of Wali Baba at Kondhali, Maharashtra|
Originating in Persia, Shaykh Abdullah Shattar delivered the order and its instructions to India. According to author Idrees Shah, Shaykh Sirajuddin Abdullah Shattar settled in India in the 15th century. He had a unique method to judge his disciples with their eating patterns and gives his guidance only to those who made excellent judgements of foodstuffs. Dressed in magnificent robes, he used to roam on streets making an announcement by beating drums and inviting humans to witness Almighty in his existence, roaming from one place to another, and established the method. His practice was to contact the chief of the Tariqa and would ask them, "teach me your method (Tariqa), if not, then accept my method of Tasawwuf".
Shattari masters believe that awareness of oneself, as a path to reach to Allah.
The divine knowledge of this order is restricted to the seekers of Allah due to its complexity and by the order of Maula Ali Mushkil Kusha. Masters disclose the secret of Muqatte-at only after the deep analysis of the "zarf" of the student.
