Question: Why are awliya considered Fulkil Mashhoon, “loaded ships”?
B’ism Allah… Alhamdulillah, from the teachings of Mawlana Shaykh Nurjan Mirahmadi (QS), the concept of ‘fulkil mashhoon’ or ‘loaded ships’ refers to the souls of the awliya being filled with divine knowledge, spiritual energy, and immense blessings from Allah and His Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Just as a ship carries its cargo to its destination, the awliya act as carriers of immense spiritual energy and wisdom, moving in the oceans of divine presence and light. Their souls are free and swimming in that ocean, carrying the light and realities of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. The awliya possess profound spiritual knowledge and are filled with divine blessings, and their souls are constantly ascending to the heart of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. This elevated state of their souls allows them to emanate light and wisdom, guiding and blessing the seekers on their spiritual journey. Therefore, they are likened to ‘loaded ships’ because their souls carry and spread immense divine blessings and spiritual guidance.
May Allah grant us the understanding of the profound reality of the awliya as ‘fulkil mashhoon’ and bless us with their guidance and blessings. Ameen.
May your spiritual journey be illuminated by the light of the awliya and be blessed with divine guidance and closeness to Allah and His beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.
