Thousands of people visit his shrine in Ajmer, Rajasthan, every day because of his Hindu and Muslim fame and the belief that he can help solve any problems. Throughout his sermons, Chishti emphasized the importance of loving all of our fellow animals, regardless of religion or social status. His essential teachings are charity and compassion for the poor and needy, leading a pure life of devotion to the divine, and achieving oneness with God in the service of his creations. The lessons in ‘be present in every moment,’ published by babbling Parveen, are essential, timeless ideas from Chishti that encourage one to fully and selflessly live each minute of one’s life.
The Chishti’s engage in five fundamental religious practices:
1) Pronouncing Allah’s names aloud and sitting in the proper position at the proper times.
2) Silently reciting Allah’s names.
3) Retaining control of one’s breathing.
4) Mystic pondering engrossment
5) There are forty days or more of spiritual imprisonment for prayer and reflection in a lonely corner or cell.
Teachings of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti
1) Mysticism and mystics: He clarifies, “Mysticism is a phrase, not a practice.” Knowing about and studying mysticism does not make one a Sufi. A mystic’s inner existence is what separates them. The divine wisdom possessed by a mystic must be exact. He should submit to God’s will rather than his own. His demeanor should be humble, friendly, and kind, with no suggestion of arrogance, conceit, or superiority. He should be content, meek, and gentle, entirely trusting in God. Trying to attain popularity, applause, or renown is pointless and fruitless. On the contrary, getting closer to the friend and gaining approval should be the primary goal.
2) Discipline: He believes that a student must give his entire self and will to his spiritual master and teacher. He recognized that by faithfully following and obeying his spiritual leader, the spiritual disciple should aim to reach the point where his spiritual leader becomes his disciple’s comb. A spiritual disciple’s motto should be service, love, obedience, and faith in his spiritual guide and instructor to achieve perfection.
3) Spiritual guide: In terms of the spiritual guide, he describes himself as a mentor, friend, and philosopher for the moral, spiritual, and ethical development of his disciple.
4) Love: Whoever pursues the path of love loses his name and identity. Because love is all-encompassing and universal, the lover’s heart is a love fireplace. Fire consumes anything that is brought in. The most powerful of all fires is the flame of love. Obedience to and dread of the friend characterize deep love. There are three types of love repentance, according to him. Firstly, it’s because of humiliation.
The second is to refrain from sinning. Finally, people must purify themselves from within by rejecting harshness and hostility. The idea of treating the friend with restriction is ruled out by genuine attachment. Love comes from God rather than from ourselves. As a result, love possesses a divine character.
5) Prayer: He emphasizes the importance of prayer, describing it as “a great necessity for the growth of the soul.” He gives the word “prayer” a broad sense by
