      I personally do not believe Islam has "saints". For anyone who believes it does, I'd like to see references from Qur'an and Sunnah. I will just read it, not debate the matter. Thanks.

      The Quran does refer to the "friends of Allah" and says someting like "they do not suffer nor do they feel pain" -Allah forgive the inaccuracy of the quote. I have not got a English Quran with me, and lent the one I had to a mate, but this is a reference to the "Awliya ul Allah" as the Arabic calls "friends of Allah".

      Saint as in Awliya? There are some names.. Rabia al-dawiyah, Malik Dinar, Ibrahim, Ali Ibn Abi Talib ..and others

      It's due to their constant remembrance of Allah swt and their simple life with little to none material possessions

      Google: those names why are they Saints, there has gotta be some story behind them?

      In the turkish community I hear there is a Saint that carries our Prophet's pendulum to date and the pendulum is a sign of authenticity cuz they are supposedly the real "syed" through his daughters linearity or some jargon like that.

      In the Indo-pak community I hear this persons name a lot, Ghaus. Whats up with invoking these guys to ask Allah especially since he's passed away.

      Well Coco, Saints are Awliya right? Or do you have any other meaning for it? Anyway..If you don’t believe that saint/awliya exist then there is no point in having this discussion right?

      ...Another example is Maryam Bint Emran (the mother of Prophet Isa (as)). You can find her story in the Quran.

      Well...Coco I have no Idea what or who Ghaus is? Maybe he is some leader of some Tariqa or Tribe.

      As for the pendulum and things...This is the first time I am hearing it. There are some Sufi Tariqa that venerates their leader (Pir Shahib) and somewhat try to link it with our Holy Prophet descendents. Not very sure about their geneology..maybe ..or maybe not.

      As for Syed..We have a lot of them in Pakistan. I think they try to trace back their lineage to our holy prophet.

      Saint or Awliya are very special kind of people. Selected for their piety and piousness. Usually the Identity of Wali's is very well known among the people. Take for example Rabia from Iraq. You can find her life story everywhere. These ppl are example for us. We should emulate their life style to reach the highest degree of faith – the faith of awliya.

      for those people who mentioned some names of Saints:
      in christianity it's the pope who makes someone a saint......who fullfils the role here?

      but anyway, i have the feeling that certain "pirs" are thought of as saints by their "mureed".

      - Pir PagaRa

      - Hazrat Faridu-ud-din Gunj Baksh Ali Hajveri Rehmat ullah Elaih (patron saint of Lahore and my Saint too. He is the King of all Saints, both local and imported).

      >> ...and why did they become such?

      It was a difficult career decision. They could also become electric engineer or doctors. But they chose sainthood. More money I guess.

      Minor correction: for the Roman Catholic Church the pope determine who is made a "saint". According to the Bible (New Testament), ALL CHRISTIAN BELIEVERS are "saints" (or should at least live like saints).

      Islam does have saints--all the Sahaba for a start were also awliya Allah--(Friends of Allah i.e. saints)

      Then all of the famous Sufis in our history--too many to count are saints!

      Just in Indo-Pak we have got so many great wali Allah (saints) that it is a great blessing:

      eg Sultan al Hind Khawaja Gharib Nawaz Moinuddin Chishti
      Hazrat Saleem Chishti
      Hazrat Data Ganj Bakhsh Sayyid Ali Hijwiri
      Hazrat Ganj e Shakar Baba Farid
      Hazrat Sultan Bahu
      Hazrat Mian Muhammad Bakhsh
      Hazrat Shahbaz Qalandar
      Hazrat Nizamuddin Awliya
      Hazrat Gesu Daraaz
      Hazrat Ghaus Gwaliyari
      Hazrat Abdul Latif BhiTai
      Hazrat Shams Multani
      Hazrat Baba Waris Shah Sahib
      Hazrat Amir Khusro Delhvi
      Hazrat Sabri
      Hazrat Khawaja Bakhtiyaar Kaki
      Hazrat Sarmad
      Hazrat Imam e Rabbani Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi

      and just in the 20th century we've had amongst many others:

      Ala Hazrat Imam Ahmad Riza Khan Barelvi
      Hazrat Pir Sayyid Jama'at Ali Shah Alipuri
      Hazrat Sayyid Jama'at Ali Shah La-Saani
      Hazrat Pir Sayyid Mihr Ali Shah GolRawi
      Hazrat Mufti e Azam Hind Mustafa Riza Khan
      Hazrat Zinda Pir
      Hazrat Pir Muhammad Karam Shah

      And not to forget of course famous non-desi saints of Islam such as

      Ghaus al Azam Hazrat Sayyid Abdul Qadir Jilani Baghdadi
      Sultan al Awliya Hazrat Khawaja Muhammad Bahauddin Shah Naqshband
      Hazrat Shaykh al Akbar Muhyuddin Ibn al Arabi
      Hazrat Mawlana Jalal uddin Rumi
      Hazrat Sayyid at-Taifa Junayd al Baghdadi
      Hazrat Sayyid al Arifeen Bazayid Bistami

      and the list is endless...!!

      All of the above are--by consensus of the Ummah!--awliya which means they are the beloved Saints of Allah!



      May Allah be pleased with them all and sanctify their secrets! ameen!

      "Verily on the awliya (saints) there is no fear and nor do they grieve!" (Koran Sharif)
