I have gone through American Professor C M Naim’s Research (See here) on Naimatullah Shah Wali (R.A.) Predictions few weeks ago. I figured out his research is not up to the mark due to many factors. My last post was about his research. Now in this post, I am raising many questions but lets first discuss some parts of his research on which he agreed.
1. “The first recorded appearance was in 1850, after the “Jihad” movement of Syed Ahmad had failed in the north-west, followed by serial appearances after the debacle of 1857, the dissolution of the Ottoman Caliphate and the failure of the Khilafat and Hijrat movements in 1924, the Partition of the country and community in 1947, and the Indo-Pak war of 1971-72.”
So C M Naim accepted these predictions have recorded appearance.
2. “The opening verse of Q1 reads: qudrat-i-kirdigar mibinam// halat-i-rozgar mibinam (“I see the Creator’s powers; I see how Time fares”). The poem is now universally accepted as composed by a Sufi master who was born Syed Nuruddin but is known to posterity as Shah Ni’matullah Wali of Kirman (Iran).”
So he is saying, “Mibinam” Radeef poem is Universally accepted.
Now the real problem comes for C M Naim, According to his research, ‘Mibinam’ Radeef Poem has 50 to 57 couplets. here the flaw in his research appears beacause An Old book of Naimat Ullah Shah Wali contains 100 couplets. This is a famous book with name Divan-Shah-Nematollah-Sangi
I have already posted my research on Meebinam Radeef. Read here (Mee Beenam Radeef & Other Comparisons)
There may be many more couplets but first 100 are already found. C M Naim proved Naimatullah Shah Wali’s link with Kirman (Iran) but according to book: Shah Naimatullah Wali Paishangoiyan (1993) By Col. (Rtd) Matloob Hussain (Page 4)
In Pakistan, anybody who ever tried to read Shah Naimat’s Predictions, he/she must know about a Famous Book: 800 Years Predictions: Hazrat Naimatullah Shah Wali (R.A. ) by Hafiz Muhammad Sarwar Nizami (Year 1972). Here is this book’s Title Page
The Biggest Question and Doubt in C M Naim’s Research is
Why he deliberately hide/missed this most Important Book By H.M. Sarwar Nizami?
Why he deliberately hide/missed the Book Shah Naimatullah Wali Paishangoiyan (1993) by Col. (Rtd) Matloob Hussain?
H.M. Sarwar Nizami’s Book is the most easily available book on Internet, Just go to Google and type Naimatullah Shah Wali, this book will be found on first page of Google.This is the only book with all three types of Poems mentioned by C M Naim himself but didn’t include its reference. This is the only book whose English translation is also available since 2008.
See Popular Posts of this blog. This book is on top since the start of this blog. Thousands of people already viewed this.
But, I have a answer of this question, H.M. Sarwar Nizami was a student of Amanat Ali Shah Chisthi Nizami R.A. who was a Famous Wali Allah of 20th century. A glimpse of his knowledge can be seen in H.M. Sarwar Nizami’s Book also. All the content other than predictions in H M. Nizami’s Book is also very important and explains the knowledge of Aulia Allah (Friends of Allah) so C M Naim tried to hide this by not including this book’s reference in his research as this book is very easily available and its predictions are mostly read in Pakistan. (All other references by C M Naim are not easy to search on Internet).
Amanat Ali Shah Sahib From Book Asrar-e-Ma’arifat
All the knowledge of H.M. Sarwar Nizami has come from his mentor. Book Asrar-e-Maarifat by his mentor opens the secrets of self. What is Ilm-e-Ghaib & Shahdah? What is Ilm-e-Ludni? What statuses a Man can achieve? How Aulia Allah foretell future through Kashf with the Will of Allah? and a lot of deep Knowledge about Tasawwuf & Maarifat. Allah had blessed him with the Ilm-e-Ludni (Divine mystical knowledge) and he was Sahib-e-Kashf himself.
My Question to Prof. C M Naim is, ‘He is doing research on spiritual predictions of a Saint but he never touches its spiritual aspect.Why? How can he conduct a research on a Spiritual topic without the knowledge of Spirituality and Islamic Mysticism‘
Ironically, Secular-minded C M Naim has done research on a spiritual topic. Lets see the meaning of Word Secular from Babylon Dictionary
adj. worldly, pertaining to the material (as opposed to the spiritual or religious); nonreligious in nature; not belonging to a religious order.
So word ‘Secular’ is directly opposite to word ‘Spiritual’. How can a research by Secular person be impartial on a Spiritual Subject?
By missing H.M Nizami’s Book, he created confusion by saying
If he reads title page of H.M Nizami’s Book, It is clearly written ‘Hazrat Naimat Ullah Shah Wali R.A’, so Shah comes after Naimat Ullah.
Here are some more excerpts for C.M. Naim although he mentioned second one in his research.
C M Naim partially rejected Q2 & Q3 (Second & Third Poem) but here are three excerpts by Famous Pakistani Scholars/Writers referring different couplets from Q3 (Third Poem ‘ana’ Qafia)
1. From: Alakh Nagri by Mumtaz Mufti Page 967-968
Famous writer Mumtaz Mufti was 42 years old in 1947, and very well knew these predictions, two ‘ana’ Qafia couplets were mentioned by him. Why C M Naim didn’t referred this excerpt? while he quoted Hazrat Imam Bari (R.A.)’s saying in his research and said Mumtaz Mufti is very famous in Pakistan. How can he miss this important reference? He said Qudrat Ullah Shahab, Ishfaq Ahmad and Mumtaz Mufti as self promoting ‘Seers’. I can say, this is his own point of view and very biased. Why he forgot another Seer ‘Mohtarma Atiya Moujood‘ from Book Alakh Nagri who predicted breaking of India and a war? View here
Shah Naimat’s Predictions about Partition (1947) & Kashmir dispute have already proved.

Below is a couplet referred by Haroon ur Rasheed and Prof. Ahmad Rafique Akhtar.
From Q3 (3rd Poem), Couplet about England’s Future. Other couplets can be seen here
2. From: Haroon ur Rasheed’s Article ‘Kya Parhaiz Ilaj Se Behter Nahin’ 29 March 2010
3. By Prof. Ahmad Rafique Akhtar : Book Islam aur Asar-e-Hazir Page 300
If he thinks these predictions as Conspiracy Theories & Forgeries then ‘Why couldn’t he prove a single prediction wrong since their first recorded appearance in 1850 till now?
In the end, I can point out many other flaws in his research because C M Naim manipulated the qaseedah and distorted certain established facts by saying these predictions Conspiracy Theories. I see his research as biased one and he showed just his point of view, hiding many other facts. I suggest Prof. C M Naeem to rewrite his research and consider above facts but first read some good book on spirituality written by a Saint, he can start by Asrar-e-Ma’arifat.
