Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani (right) accompanied by President Pervez Musharraf (left). For the first time in sixty years, a member of such noble ancestry is holding a pivotal governmental position, in a country established as a place of refuge for Muslims the world over.
MURREE, Pakistan-Worshippers gathered at the Holy Khanqah Qadriyah Awliyyah, in the village of Holy Islamville, York, South Carolina, USA, to extend, on behalf of His Eminence, El Sheikh, Syed Mubarik Ali Shah Gillani, El Hashmi of Mian Mir Sharif, the warmest of congratulations to the newly elected Prime Minister of Pakistan, the Honorable Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani.
Worshippers, including those Muslim lady participants in the “Annual Banaatun Noor Reunion,” also celebrated the election of the Honourable Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani as the new Prime Minister of Pakistan. Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani is a direct descendent of the blessed, noble and purified family, the Ahli Bayt, of the Holy Last Messenger, Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him).  Notably, he is also a descendent of the esteemed family of Ghausul Azam, Sheikh Syed Abdul Qadir Gilani (Allah’s mercy upon him).
This is the first time in some sixty years that a member of such noble ancestry has held such a pivotal governmental position in a country  established on the blood of hundreds of thousands, to be a refuge for Muslims the world over.
Unfortunately, this Islamic Republic is better known for the disrespect, ill treatment and violence meted out to Ahli Bayt (peace be upon them)  and their dedicated followers and supporters; perpetrated against them by extremists and puppets of both domestic and foreign special interest groups.
Hence, we extend a caution to the new Prime Minister for him not  to become anyone’s agent, but rather he remains only the agent of his ancestor, Ghausul Azam, Sheikh Syed Abdul Qadir Gilani, of Baghdad (Allah’s mercy upon him). He must keep in mind that his success lies in his ability to be steadfast in upholding the principles, values and heritage of his noble family.
Throughout America members of our Sufi Lodges are making Du’a (Prayer) of support, hoping the Prime Minister will uphold the honour of the Ahli Bayt in every decision making instance.
