Information about the mausoleum of Khoja Abduholik Gijduvani, the 1st pir of ancient Bukhara

In the Islamic world, the Hojagon-Naqshbandiyya, Yassawiyya, and Kubrawiyya orders were formed in Central Asia, spread to other Muslim countries, and developed.  
The order of Khojagon Naqshbandiya was the closest order to life that embraced secularism and attempted to express the real qualities necessary for human collective existence and the process of labor. The formation of this direction was “tariqa” and its recognition in Central Asia is connected with the teachings of Abdukhalik Gijduvani (1103-1179). Then, this direction, called Naqshbandiyya (associated with the name of Bahauddin Naqshbandiyya-XIV century) spread to a number of countries other than Central Asia. Today the study of the philosophical and theological heritage of the founder of the Khojagon-Naqshbandiy order, Abdukhalik Gijduvani, is of great importance. Because the ideas of science-enlightenment, higher morality, striving for spiritual elevation are deeply expressed in it. Mystical currents that originated in Central Asia in IX-XII centuries, doctrines, ideas of their famous representatives are difficult to estimate with consideration of the general content and main objectives of the spirituality of the Renaissance.
Abdukhalik Gijduvani is one of the first founders of the Khojagon-Naqshbandiya, the largest of such teachings. Speaking about the role of the Hojagon order in the history of spirituality, it is necessary to mention the great social significance of this order and doctrine. This tariqa was formed and developed by Hojai Jahan (Abdukhalik Gijduvani), his students Revgariy (Mohitoban), Romitaniemi (Azizan), Baboi Samasi. Especially during the time of the Great Mashoikh Khoja Ahrar Wali in the third generation after Naqshband (15th century) this order and doctrine reached its apogee. In a sentence pronounced by Hodjah Jahan, it is said that "it is necessary to lighten the burden of the people, so that, when it is impossible, by practicing an honest profession, to be able to give ba kor and dil ba Yar inevitable standing," or that it belongs to the hands of Hazrat Gijduwani.
In the famous Shah's saying "to open the gates of the khilvat(loneliness), to close the gates of the sheikhdom, and to open the gates of the yor-ul-fat(love)" we see the true nature of this tariqa. The Hojagon order, formed by the blessed names and personal deeds of the Abdukhalik Gijduwani, is also based on nurturing the ego, possessing beautiful morals, revealing true and truth, and attaining knowledge and enlightenment. This majestic and noble breed deeply valued a simple, natural and quiet way of life, conducted with profound intelligence and honest labor, so much so that one need only read the treatises of Gijduwani, particularly the "testament," Somoti Yusuf Hamadani, to be convinced of this. Many exhortations of Hojai Jahan, including the study of science with the help of Kunta, distancing oneself from the Jahids and Sufis-Agnas, not shying away from anyone, calls to reach out to the people in any situation, never lose their value and significance. The principles of the Naqshbandiyya order, which formed the basis of the Naqshbandiyya order and divided the principles of the order into eight, are in fact very difficult to give complete information about. Here is a definition of the etiquette of several teachings.


They are the rules of etiquette of the following 8 teachings:

1. "Silence gift rest"

A sense of closeness to Allah; a sense of breathing-deep breathing in natural alphas. Breathing in and out, mindful of God.


2. "Narrow step"

Looking at the toes, refraining from looking at what is forbidden; controlling one's steps, that is, feeling what his desire is; focusing on the goal and not being distracted from it; staying alert and being open to opportunities provided for doing the right thing when necessary.


3. "Safar dar Watan" (homeward journey) 

Estrangement from people and drawing closer to Allah - an inner journey, that is, one's journey within oneself; reasoning about one's mistakes and traveling from reproachable faults to praiseworthy virtues.


4. "Hilwat dar Juman" (loneliness in Juman)

Embitterment among others, engaging in the affairs of the world, not forgetting Allah with the heart; the Sufi will be with Allah outwardly in peace, but in boots on the ground.


5. "Yod kard"

Rremembering Allah with the heart and on the tongue; remembering is the use of dhikr, mindfulness and vigilance, and remembering or repeating Allah's names so that the heart knows that al-Haqq is present.


6. "Boz hasht."

Reading dhikr only with remembrance of Allah; cultivating strict discipline, restraint, patience, repentance, and a return to piety.


7. "Point of View"

Protecting the heart from the intrusion of extraneous feelings; being open to subtle sensations, positive energy, positive possibilities and positive influences; being vigilant about momentary thoughts.


8. "Yod dosht "

Preservation of memory, sense of being and body - awareness of the depth of feeling in spiritual practice and the need to protect the achieved state of return to Allah. (Elor Karimov Professor).


Each of these principles is a separate contemplated theme with deep meaning.  
Perfect people who have given life to enlightenment, truth, justice and a humane perspective are velvet. Khoja Abdukhalik Gijduvani, born and raised in the sacred land of Bukhara and who created the unquenchable Buston in the world of enlightenment tariqa, is one such perfect one.
