Dear Wasim Ahmed,

Well, thanks for belated reply.I would like to know you that muslims mean by 'Worship and Sunnah' as- to endeavor for accepting 'character and talks' of Muhmmad is nothing but following SUNNAH whereas Namaj(Prayer),Roza(Fasting),Haj(Pilgrimage) ,dhikra(Chanting) etc are form of worship.For muslims sunnah and worship are two different things. You have written about 'Murshid' as Rabb and Muhmmad i.e. praiseworthy(I guess you are telling about SUFIS).But dear brother ,I would like to make you know that I personaly came across many persons who claimed themselves as Murshid but engaged in worldy things. They trade 'Jannat' and thug disciples by demanding presents,gifts while some lured into lust.

However I found them worshiping Allah as personality and Some of them compare Muhmmad as Allah and some of them project themself as Allah ! Though they belived in Wahdatal Wajood but their actions and worships are contradictory. i.e. Scheme of Seven Heaven.They find necessary to go at mosque to find Allah.They even don't mention about Dajl which you have written. You have written presence of Muhmmad is available for lover. But how ?

So Do you mean that what todays ' Murshid ' are same as Muhmmad i.e. Abul Qasim?How many such Muhmmad there exists and whom will you decide to worship among them? Well in straight way, if Muhmmad is Ilah(to be worshiped ) and there exists many Muhmmad(Murshid) then Will it not create chaos or conflict between them? Whom will you call Rab?

At last, I would like to welcome Dr.Pipe's work which emphasis on higher criticism on Islam which surely help muslims to come at rational thinking
