Hadith Explanation

The Honour of the Autaad

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Just as there are Ghous, Qutb, Abdaal and Autaad on earth, there are also Autaad of the Masjid. The honour of the Autaad of the Masjid is such that if they leave the Masjid then angels begin to look for them, if they fall ill the angels go to visit them and when they go to take care of their worldly affairs then (by Allah’s command) the angels help them.” [Targheeb]

Autaad is the plural of Watad which means tent peg. In the way that a tent peg stays put in the ground the Autaad stay contentedly in the Masjid.

Ghous, Qutb, Abdaal and Autaad are different classes of the Auliya Allah.

The Mutakif stays happily in the Masjid as the Autaad stay, so perform Etikaf with the hope of joining the ranks of the Autaad.
