Islamic concept on Sainthood

Since the very time when Adam was expelled from the paradise and He set his feet upon earth, obliged and compelled to accept this distance and separation, Allah never at all left him alone and by sending apostles, prophets, descending holy books and broadcasting His messages to inform the sons of Adam about their duties, and obligations and also to invited them to His worship, prayers and adoration.

Consequently upon this invitation, the sons of Adam segregated into two groups, one if the two ignored the invitation of Allah and moved upon the way of Satan and those of the other group accepted the invitation from the core of their hearts and recognized the aim of the creation, which was the same adoration and worship of Allah, and steped along the course of Allah. These are all the friends of Allah, whom Allah has led out of darkness, towards the light. Just as light has power, strength and sometimes weakness and dimness, the friends of Allah (Saints) too has degrees and stages. Those who have reached the higher stages, have attained the station if (devolution to holy leadership) and are called saints of Allah.

The existence of saints, as a kind, with all those signs which are described in the holy authoritative book of Islam (Al-Qur'an), is possible in every age. But the recognition of their personalities us very difficult rather impossible and absurb for us but of course only when Allah or the prophet introduce particular persons to us. There are alot of authentic sayings that the profound care and affection toward the Prophet Muhammad and His household is considered as part of the conditions of faith. The household of the Prophet are pure, infaloiablr and away from every kind of impurity, contamination and sin, that too in much a manner that the resolution and intention of Allah has become incumbent and is accrued in connection with their purity and not getting contaminated with impurities and sins.

Allah says "Whosoever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, I shall be at war with that person. My servant doesn't draw near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have imposed upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with superogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him, I becomes his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks."
