Who are Mujaddid’s?
Mujaddid, in Islamic tradition, refers to a person who, Muslims believe, is sent by God inthe first half of every century of the Islamic calendar. As it says in the hadith: “Allah shallrise for this Umma at the head of every century a man who shall renew (or revive) for itits religion” (Sunan Abu Dawud).The Mujaddid’s objective is to revive Islam, remove from it any extraneous elements andto restore it to its pristine state. A Mujaddid might be a caliph, a founder of a sufi order, asaint (wali), a prominent teacher, a scholar or some other kind of influential person.Usually all those who are considered to be the Mujaddid may not compulsory thatthey claim. They can be recognizing by their work for Islam and its revival.
Mujjadid- Alf-Sani:
Dotting GT Road, away from the hustle and bustle of Chandigarh and somewhere between Ludhiana and Ambala, lies the dusty town of Sirhind. Sirhind is mostly knownamong Muslims through Sheikh Ahmed Sirhindi, the famous Sufi of the Naqshbandiorder who was conferred the title of Mujaddid Alif-sani.Mujaddid Alif-sani would mean reviver of Islam in the second millennium. Even thoughhis name was familiar, He received his knowledge and education through his father andthrough many shaikhs in his time. He made progress in three tariqats: Suhrawardiyya,Qadiriyya, and Chistiyya. He was given permission to train followers in all three tariqatsat the age of 17 years. He was busy in spreading the teachings of these tariqats and inguiding his followers, yet he felt that something was missing in himself and he wascontinuously searching for it. He felt an interest in the Naqshbandi Sufi Order, because hecould see by means of the secrets of the other three tariqats that it was the best andhighest. His spiritual progress eventually brought him to the presence of the Ghawth andQutb of his time, ash-Shaikh Muhammad al-Baqi, who had been sent from Samarqand toIndia by the order of his shaikh, Muhammad al-Amkanaki. He took the Naqshbandi Order from the shaikh and stayed with him for two months and some days, until SayyidinaMuhammad al-Baqi opened to his heart the secret of this tariqat and gave himauthorization to train his murids in the Order. Khwaja Baqi Billah's most prominentdisciple was Shaikh Ahmad, popularly known as Mujaddid Alif Sani (reviver of Islamduring the second millennium).

Sirhindi's World view
Sirhindi's worldview focused on the idea thatontologically, the prophethood is far greater than closeness with God. He believed thatSufiideas which centered around spiritualgrowth beyond the material world, while exhibiting key concepts, fell short of encompassingIslamas a whole. Sirhindi, still accepting and using these ideas of 
, or closeness with God, focused on a much more human understanding and reality byfocusing on following thesunnahof Muhammadand his companions. His influence went so far as implementing jurisprudence in the Islamic world by emphasizing theShariahandfiqh, integrating both into Indian Muslim government and society. This was accomplishedthrough his 536 letters collectively entitled

Start Of Preaching:
Mujaddid started teaching in his town of sirhind at the age of 21 years.many muslimschildren got islamic education because of him.In his preaching Syed Ahmad called uponthe people to adhere to the pristine teachings of Islam and discard all the un-Islamic practices and beliefs. Shah Abdul Aziz who was old and had turned blind also blessedSyed Ahmad and gave him his cloak. He initiated the people into his order taking Bai-atin all four popular Sufi orders viz. Naqsh Bandi, Chishti Qadri and Suhrawardi. Since allthese orders had adopted many corrupt practices having no sanctity of the sharait so SyedAhmad, after taking Bai'at, initiated his disciples into his new order namely 'MuhammadiaOrder'. The disciples, under this order, were required to make a vow that they will strictlyabide by the commandments of the sharait and will not follow anything not proven by theQQuran and the Hadith. The oath taken under the last or the 5th order would save thedisciples from all the evil practices. That had crept in the four mystical orders
